Seeing Double, Triple, Quadruple...

I recently got some nail polish to update what I already have. I figure, summer season's coming which means more pedis, open-toed shoes, time to try a different color perhaps. And of course, I probably should have looked first to see what I've got already to refresh my memory before I add any more to the collection. But of course, I didn't.


So there I was thinking, after the most recent purchase, "Oooh, I don't have this shade "Chocolate Cakes!" But what do I find when I got home? "Chocolate Kisses"! Ok, for a brief moment, I thought it was still a good buy since one is a cake and one is a candy, albeit both chocolate.

You think? *sigh* Even I had to admit that they're practically the same color, or should I say they ARE the same color(?)! Needless to say, I ended up returning the cake one.

Got me looking closer at the rest of what I have, to see what I actually got. And lookey!

NARS Chinatown, Essie Wicked, Essie Bordeaux, Essie Chocolate Kisses,
Essie Rock the Croc, Essie Vintage Wine, OPI Lincoln Park After Dark,
OPI A Man in Every Portugal

I guess it's one thing to say I like the plum-y brown-y shades but it's another when I just realized I have not just one, but 2 3 4, guess we can all count...


This is indicative of something, no? (You think?!)

I had this problem, in my young(er) years, when it came to clothes/shoes/accessories. I had multiples of the same color, cut, pattern, you name it. And that's how I've always justified my purchase. "Oh, but the stripes are different width", or my favorite line then, "Oh, but I don't have it in that shade of (insert color)". I got out of that thinking, eventually, thank god! But I guess my nail polish(es) have not gotten the message. Until now. Achh!

One step at a time, or I should say, one product at a time...
