I’ve been sitting on this Sinful Colors for…4 months? Something like that. I just couldn’t find anything to pair it with that made it look good while not overpowering whatever polish I put it with. I think I made a good decision, do you?

Hey everyone, it’s been a long time. December was an incredibly overall shitty month with lovely spots of non-shittiness. :/ Along with everyone in my family being sick, my nails crapping out on me, we were victims of a burglary.

As some of you know, we moved this past summer to a new home and are still in the process of moving things from the old home and updating it to be able to sell it. A few weeks ago, my husband discovered that many items were stolen – including most of my nail polish collection, along with much of his model train sets and materials, and other valuables. When we moved, I didn’t move the majority of my collection, I only moved the hundred or so polishes I hadn’t tried yet. I didn’t want to move the collection because I was apprehensive about such a move and I’ll be honest, it was partly laziness as well. I mean – thousands of polish, who wants to pack that up?

At any rate, my mood has been pretty bleak, I’ve stopped participating in a lot of groups and I haven’t really been in the mood to blog. It’s just so painful to be in brand specific groups and think about specific polishes that are gone, and won’t ever be replaced. It took me over 5 years and thousands of dollars to amass my collection and thinking about starting over is seriously distressing.

Some bright spots – I have had a few friends reach out to send me polishes, which has overwhelmed me with gratefulness for the kindnesses shown to me. Michelle from Polish ‘M sent me a box full of polishes, including this one. I don’t feel like I deserve all this kindness, I’m not anyone special, and I haven’t done anything special. I’ve been crying over the messages sent my way and if you’ve been one of those that have reached out, you have no idea what your words have meant to me.
