Grace-full Nail Polish ‘What a Girl Wants’ collection

It’s been a while, so long in fact that I am now in a different decade! Today though I have the 2nd birthday collection from Grace-full Nail Polish, a lovely Australian indie brand. The collection is called ‘What a Girl Needs (the follow up to ‘What a Girl Wants’) and consists of 6 polishes that were derived form suggestions from the Grace-full Facebook fan group.

Wingdust – Steel Town Girl (and my new buying approach)

Wingdust 'Steel Town Girl' nail polish on pollypolish.com

Wingdust ‘Steel Town Girl’

As I’m sure many of you reading this can appreciate an addiction to nail polish can sometimes get a little out of control too enthusiastic. Hence my blog sale and also why I’m trying to buy with a bit more of a conscious awareness. Too many of the things in my blog sale are brand new and untried. Too often I’ve bought a polish because it’s part of a collection and not because I really liked it. And far too often I have bought a polish because I think I already have a dupe and I ‘want to do a comparison post’. Let’s be honest though, with somewhere between 1300 and 1600 polishes (vague estimate I know) I’m never really going to get around to the many many comparison posts I’d love to do. I’m unlikely to even get around to swatching all of the unique polishes I own.
