The Untried Challenge: The Polish Bar

Happy New Year!!!  My number one resolution is to remember to write 2015 instead of 2014 whenever I have to date something ;)

Last night I posted this picture to my Facebook Page:


That is a list I've made of 32 different indie companies with polishes I own that remain "untried."  I am going to, in the next 40 days, try all of these!  I cut each of these into strips and put them in a box to draw them at random :)  The first draw last night was The Polish Bar, and the polish is "Spring Reverie."


Direct Sunlight




Indoors





Spring Reverie is a lovely medium/powdery blue color with a subtle holographic effect.  This polish was opaque in three thin coats and dried in under 5 minutes to a shiny finish, though I did add a topcoat in the photos above.  I have to admit that at first, I wasn't too sold on this polish, and was sure I'd be adding it to my De-stash Board on Pinterest.  It's not as vibrant in color and holographic effect as I usually like my polishes to be.  But as I've seen it in different lighting, it's starting to grow on me :)  I may just keep this one around!

Due to the oddly crappy weather we're having here in Phoenix, there will likely not be a new polish post from me tomorrow, unless I draw a brand that only has one Untried polish that I could quickly photograph tomorrow, when it is supposed to be nice and sunny again.  I hope you all had a wonderful New Year's Eve, and are starting this 2015 with a lot of great resolutions!  See you soon <3

  1. I've got lots of untrieds too! I love this idea (sadly I have so many untrieds, I wouldn't make it through them even if I changed my mani everyday of the year). I've never heard of Polish Bar, but this is a gorgeous color. It's very delicate looking and looks lovely on you!

    1. Thank you so much! I recently went through my polish to try to de-stash a bit and realized I had a TON of untrieds. That needed to change :D

  2. Firstly, Happy New year. Lovely shade, This shade of light blue / grey tone is not easily available. Holo effect makes it more unique.
