H & M Je T’Aime … and a New Year’s Resolution
I have a spreadsheet and mobile phone application that I use to keep track of all my polish. I was updating it today to add the new polishes I’ve received over Christmas and I was looking at how many of each brand I have; how many of each colour; and so on.
I also log which swatch wheel I have that polish on, how much it cost me and whether or not I’ve used it yet (yes, I know, I’m very OCD about my polish!) One thing that struck me is how few of my polishes I have actually used. As of today, I own 180 polishes (not including base and top coats, nail art pens and so on). Of that 180, I have never used 104. That’s more than half. And it’s not something to be proud of.
So a New Year’s resolution for 2013 is to start using those untrieds as much as possible.
I’ve begun today, and am wearing H&M Je T’Aime. It’s a lovely red with gold shimmer, and I wish I’d tried it before now as it would have been perfect as a Christmas manicure! It’s so sparkly that I can’t stop looking at it! It went on well and dried quickly. I’ve used two coats, and that has covered well. Despite adjusting the colour balance and saturation, my photos have come out with it looking more pink than it is. It’s a “proper” red.
