Back in August I was planning on doing a little end of the month summary of the polishes I've been wearing when I'm not swatching (still trying to use so many untrieds!) so I could document them here. Fast forward to December and I still haven't posted them here! Sooooo I just decided to combine them into one picture heavy blog, instead of 3 separate ones. Maybe I will be able to do one a month now, or maybe I'll just combine them every few months. Which idea do yall like better? I also made the pictures a little smaller since there's so many of them.
In August, I wore Essie Playdate. Certainly not an untried, I wore it lots before I started (nail)blogging! I was just searching for something to wear and my fingers landed on this. It's so pretty! I don't remember what my first Essie was but it might have been this one. A purple, go figure!
After a day I decided to add some accents with nail vinyls of Essie Cocktail Bling...which I think was an untried? I can't find it right now...it seems to have disappeared :/ I do like the ease of nail vinyls but the lines are never as clean as striping tape!
One day I was just feeling RED...which never happens so I went with it! One of my favorite reds ever is OPI The Thrill of Brazil. Definitely not an untried!

Onto to September....a new Ulta opened sort of near me and I used the gift certificate they handed out to grab some of the new OPI Venice collection! UGH I wanted this one so bad. I thought I had a picture of it alone but I guess I don't! This is Gelato on My Mind, 3 coats plus dots of Worth a Pretty Penne. This is the mani I wore to the Bahamas!
Also one I randomly landed on and decided to wear over a weekend, OPI Peace Love and OPI from the San Francisco collection a couple years ago! Not an untried. I think this is 2 or 3 coats.
On to October.....I've been filing my nails down and trying to keep them short lately, one of those times I felt like wearing something SUPER dark. OPI Roadhouse Blues is way darker in real life than it photographs! I feel like dark polish only looks good on super short nails.
I added OPI Matte topcoat and loved it equally!
This is Loaded Lacquer No Bra from Heather's Nude Jiggles Collection. Just a simple pale pink jelly polish! One of my favs. Def not untried.
