AEngland Crown of Thistles & New Years Resolutions

So two things are going to happen in this post. One: I'm going to show you my favorite polish of the year and Two: I'm going to tell you about my New Years Resolution. Lets start with #2 because I like to mix things up. 

So here is my dirty secret. I own a lot of nail polish. Ok so maybe that isn't so dirty or much of a secret. Life of a nail blogger y'all! But heres the thing, I own enough that I could do two manicures a day for the next year and still have some left over. Crazy...I know. But I also know people who own a lot more than I do, so I'm only like schmedium bad. Now for the resolution!

In 2015 I will buy NO nail polish. (I know right?) I just died a little inside typing that. So each month, I'm going to put $30 in a jar and at the end of the year hopefully I'll have $360 to splurge with. Believe me at the end of 12 months the wish list will be very long! There are a few caveats...base and top coat don't count, I will still accept press samples, and gifts will be welcome *hint hint husband!* 

The other cool thing is I'm going to try and do more giveaways this year. I have 4 lined up already and I think you'll be super excited about them!

Now on to the reason we're all here. Polish! This is AEngland's Crown of Thistles. When Adina dropped the new Elizabeth & Mary collection, I knew this one needed to be mine. Which then caused me to stalk her stockists online for several months until I managed to snag it. This amethyst holographic purple is absolutely stunning and I love everything about it. 




So what do you think of the polish? Or how about my crazy town resolution? What are your resolutions for the new year, are they polish related like mine?

Enjoy & until next time, Amy Lee

    1. It's going to be really hard, but I think it will give me the chance to enjoy all of the untrieds that I have and think are really pretty.

  2. I was trying to remember the other day who was the other blogger that had mentioned a year long no buy as well in a thread on FB. It was you! I don't have as much as you but I could still do one mani every day or two for a year before I run out. I'm going to do it as well and I have the same exceptions.

    1. Are they the Color Club Holos? Those are totally worth breaking a no buy for. :-)
