Every now and then I get a little overwhelmed by all the new and “untried” polishes I have staring at me waiting for their turn. When this happens I find myself turning to my already tried collection and digging out an oldie. It’s kinda like comfort food or a little security blanket. A couple of days ago I started getting that overwhelming feeling when my OPI Ger-mini set came in the mail. I haven’t even opened it yet, instead I went to my oldies and pulled out Essie Bobbing for Baubles.
Bobbing fo Baubles is a perfectly creamy navy polish *sigh* exactly what I needed. When it comes to cremes Essie’s formula is usually my favorite. I applied two coats for this mani and added a small stamp as an accent nail using Julep Jessica. I originally tried stamping with Essie Something Borrowed, but Julep’s formula was much thicker and was easier to stamp with.
I hate when I can look at hundreds of bottles of polish and not want to wear any of them. It’s worse than looking at a closet full of clothes and claiming I have absolutely nothing to wear. I’m sure I’m not the only one who gets in those moods. Does anyone else have a “comfort” polish they resort to when nothing else seems appealing?
