Reddit Weekly Challenge Week 2: Blue!

One of my goals here is to try to avoid some of the blogging cliches - things like apologising for lack of content, complaining about being busy, etc but I have to say I've been a little uninspired of late.  After 325 posts (this is 326), it gets rather challenging to come up with something new.  There's only so many times I can do glitter mosaics - well, that's not true, I love them but I don't want to wear out their welcome.  As a result, my posts have dropped off.  I've still been doing my nails but not in a way I feel needs showing.  In an effort to haul myself out of my blogging funk, I swatched my entire collection.  Yep, on these lovely things.  It's helped me see what I have stashed away and I should get back to posting more.  The Reddit Weekly Challenge seemed like a good place to get back into it so let's take a look at my interpretation of "Blue".

My collection doesn't even come close to fitting in one Helmer.  That's one thing I learned from my swatching.  Secondly, I have a TON of blues.  So much so that I was able to pull 24 different shades just from the Helmer alone and it turns out they look awesome dotted together.  To start with this mani, I added two coats of a white Orly polish that I cannot remember the name of >.<.  Google is not even helping me!  Anyway, it's a reasonable white polish with a blue shimmer that doesn't really show up on the nail.  Next, I took each of my 24 blue polishes and added two dots of each to each nail.  And yes, I am showing off my one and only Chanel polish.  The result kinda looks like an aquatic version of camouflage but that's ok, I'm into that.   






The Verdict:  I may need a manicure but you'll never notice because I have 25 different nail polishes on, mhwhahahahahahhah! Orly Sweet Peacock is still a standout for me, even though OPI Swimsuit...Nailed It! comes close.   If there are any particular polishes you want to know the names of, let me know in the comments, I should be able to find it.
