Yes, I already have Karl Says Tres Chic from the old Ultimate Nudes collection!  But this one looks different, and I also bought the other two that debuted with no. 57 a few seasons ago, 56 Minter Wonderland and 58 Meet Me a Paris.

I want all the other varnishes from the Une, Deux, Trois LE.  But I buy them from Spain, and shipping is *so* expensive.

Orly Highlight, Petites Color Fever Vintage Gray (recently rescued from my garage), NYX Girls The Taupe (bottle arrived to me discolored), WnW matte Distressed to Impress.  The cap on this WnW matte is so invitingly tactile, I can’t stop stroking its rubbery smoothness, lol…

Both of these I obtained just last night, free!  I buy so much nail polish at a drugstore chain that they gave me a sheaf of unexpected coupons and discounts when I had just stopped in to browse at a particular locale.  Of course I made a beeline for the small OPI selection only available at this location.  There were quite a few temptations in that realm, but many of them are other gals’ lemmings, not mine, and I’ve allowed myself lately to be influenced by outside ideas over my own preferences and intuition.  I’ve ditched a great many of my own backlogged manicure ideas in order to try out things I see online and in nail magazines.  They inevitably don’t turn out as well as they do in the images, and I ignore my own inner voice instructing me that this or that colour or technique would work much better for me personally than what I’m reading…

So I put the handfuls of OPI bottles back on the shelf, and chose these two Essies from a recent collection.  Namely, because I can’t purchase Essie from a beauty supply shop at a discount, as I do with OPI, and the discount retailers won’t get these Essie shades until this time next year…

I went out to my varnish warehouse (the garage) in order to fulfill a current exchange, and unexpectedly found these two Sinful Colors just begging to be put in a lineup with my new Essie bottles.

Then, I realized that Mind Your Mittens, recently acquired from a discount retailer, would also fit nicely here.  It’s a bit bluer than the rest, but if you park it next to an actual blue, it reads green.

If I were to go through my buckets, boxes, drawers and shelves, I would surely find an abundance of similar varnishes to complicate things further.  For the sake of simplicity,  I leave you with these hopefully uncluttered bottle tableaux of few rather than (too) many…
