New Year's Polish Resolutions

I have decided to make some resolutions in regards to my polish obsession (and let's face it, that's what it is!). I have a lot of polish-- I still haven't counted it, but honestly, it's a lot of polish and more than most sane people need or have.

1) Organize my stash
2) Swatch all my untrieds
3) Reduce my spending on polish
4) Get rid of dupes and polishes I don't need/wear

To this end, I have already organized my stash! For Christmas my husband bought me an Alex storage unit from IKEA and have now been able to mostly get all my polishes in one place. Before I had my polishes all over the place-- in our linen closet, in the guest room, sitting on every flat surface in our house. Now at least it's all in one place, though I could go through and organized



Yay, clean and organized! Doing this has made me realize that well, I have a lot of polish. A lot! Way more than I need. I am feeling a little guilty about the amount of money I have spent on polish in the last year, so I am curtailing my spending considerably in the new year. Of course, I still plan on buying some polish, but I am definitely going to limit myself. That might mean I might not always be showing current polishes from recently released collections, but I have a lot of polishes that I haven't worn or swatched so hopefully I will be able to entertain you that way.

Additionally, I am always open to suggestions and constructive criticism from you, my readers! I feel like a lot of the times I feel like I show a lot of the same brand in a row (especially Julep, probably followed by Cult Nails) and I am working on remedying that, mostly because I don't want people to get bored with my posts.

Happy New Year everyone!

  1. Nice resolutions! And yay for storage! I have similar resolutions: control the polish buying, organize and purge my stash, use the older polishes I have that I so desperately neglect..
