Indecisive Skittles

I don't know how all of you do it, but I tend to have an incredibly hard time choosing what color I want to wear every day.  I always go for the full manicure, instead of just swatching colors.  I don't like the idea of spending a lot of money on polishes that I'm not going to spend a lot of actual time wearing.  Spending a lot of time swatching doesn't really have a place in my lifestyle, either.  I tend to paint my nails right before bed and let them dry while I sleep.  Sometimes I'm surprised by what color I'm wearing in the morning. :)

Most of my polishes are hidden away in boxes, or in a large reusable canvas grocery bag.  I've started keeping an open box on top of those, though, filled with polishes that I either love to pieces, or want to swatch soon.  That's trouble in itself, putting a bunch of colors I really like right up for me to choose from.

Worse, though, when I get new polishes, I don't feel right stuffing them in covered boxes or putting them into the canvas bag.  They just get dumped into my open box o' awesomeness.

Which leads to even more trouble when it comes to making a decision!  Does anyone else out there do this, just so that you can make up your mind??

Too many wonderful colors to choose from!  I don't even remember which color I ended up with!  Maybe not even one that I had on, which is pretty sad...

If you want to know what any of the colors are, leave a comment!

How do YOU decide what polish to wear?

(Psst!  Don't forget to enter my giveaway!)


  1. im with you! its hard for me to decide on a color!

    sometimes, skittles are the best way to go! haha

  2. It's tough! I was even trying to be reasonable, with a whole hand of Autumnal neutrals, but I know that I chose something bright.

    Thanks for entering my giveaway, too! :D

  3. It's very hard to decide! I usually decide based on Season and order I bought them. That way every polish gets used! I buy em faster than I use em lol.

  4. I'm trying really hard to choose based on season, but I rarely will match my wardrobe entirely to the season. Outside of the extremes (shorts, flipflops, heavy coats), I pretty much wear what I want, when I want. Sorry, fashion. :( So my nails tend to do the same.

    I'm not usually a neutrals girl, but I'm really loving the taupes that are out right now! If only I can convince my nails that they enjoy the same thing. :)

    It's a great idea to wear the polishes in order of purchase, though. I'll give that a shot the next time I'm stuck!

  5. i have the same problem! and yes, i always "audition" possible colors over my old mani. i do try not to wear two similar colors consecutively though.

  6. I totally do that too. I do have most of my colors on nail wheels but since I left those at my parent's when I moved here I have been doing nail skittles to pick colors.
