Challenge: Ugliest

Posted on

In the last post I mentioned beginning a very laid back kind of challenge. There are no time constraints which I love and it’s also different. It’s not chock full of requests for themes like polka dots, stripes, french manicures, etc. Instead it has more unique categories I haven’t seen before (and I go through a lot of blogs!). In other words, it’s the perfect challenge for someone like me!

Since there is no particular order I decided to start with the one that piqued my interest the most: The ugliest polish I own. Quite frankly I don’t own many polishes I find ugly so it was hard to come up with one. While the polish I chose isn’t what I would call ugly, it is certainly one that I never wear and will probably never use in the future.

The polish is called Innocent and it’s by Sinful Colors. It’s not that this polish is heinous, I just don’t like neon colors. It was between this and a Cynthia Rowley hot pink polish but I am more apt to like pink than I am neon green.

Yep, I chipped my nail 😦 Rather than cutting it I’m going to try and file it back into a normal shape as it grows out. This is the same nail I lost [entirely] back in 2010 and ever since it has grown out slightly crooked. What’s one more kink in the nail at this point? It could be worse…

So what do you think of neon colors? What are some polishes you find unattractive or unflattering? Don’t hold back 😉


Nail Polish Challenge

Posted on

I always see people doing nail polish challenges and have always wanted to try one. After a few minutes of looking around the internet I came across one that is pretty unique. Most challenges have things like dots, stripes, certain colors, etc. which is fun but also kind of tired. This one, however, has some pretty interesting ideas.

I think I’ll approach this casually. Some days I’m too busy to get on here so a 31 day challenge isn’t ideal. This one is meant for any blog at any time which appeals to me. I’m not sure when I’ll finish but I am starting tonight.

Also: I added a new page to my blog that features my polish collection. I’ve always loved looking at other people’s polish, how they organize and store everything, what brands they use, etc. My collection continues to grow at a fast pace and I regularly have to find a new home for it. It started out being kept in a single tupperware container and quickly grew to four containers. Once I was tired of hauling those out every time I wanted to paint my nails I decided to put everything into a drawer. Not long after that I began getting into indie and self made polish which just about doubled my collection. Now I use two drawers to house all of my polish and a third that contains everything else nail related. If you have any photos of your collections please feel free to share!
