New Love For Old Polish - Part 1: Blues

I have so many nail polishes in my personal collection. Some I've brought for myself, others I have received for swatching. The sad thing is that I hardly use any of them. I tend to consistently reach for the same brands, and similar colours, which means that there are so many other polishes that I often forget about. Especially with making my own nail polishes I tend to wear my own brand (you know, gotta promote myself!). So it was time to give some love to some of my older polishes, starting with the blue shades. I decided to pick out 12 blue polishes, I tried to stick to older shades, so you'll see old labels and even discontinued brands. That means that if you fall in love with any of these polishes it means they might be hard to track down.

As I fell in love with some of these polishes all over again I decided to do some stamping over the top, so I picked my two favourites and got stamping!

Now that I have given some love to the blues, what colour should I give some love to next?
