The Neverending Pile Challenge: What was I thinking?

Good morning! It's time once again for the Neverending Pile Challenge! Today's theme is a great one: what was I thinking buying this? I think every nail polish hoarder can relate to this one! Sometimes you just impulsively grab a bottle and then instantly regret it.

My "what was I thinking" polish is from the Sally Hansen Fuzzy Coat collection of bar glitter toppers. All Yarned Up is a clear base with short yellow, peach and periwinkle bar glitters. Now, I hate bar glitter, and I'm not a huge fan of glitter toppers either, but for some reason I decided I needed a polish from this collection. OK, past me, that was a weird choice. Anyway, I did a glitter gradient using All Yarned Up over another untried, Zoya Willow.

OK, from an objective point of view I can see why this polish is cool...it looks like sprinkles or little feathers or something. It might come in handy if I do a cake or ice cream mani. (Which means I probably won't be able to part with it...I'm such a hoarder.) It's just not really my style though. Plus the little glitters kept poking me through the topcoat.

Are you a fan of the bar glitter trend?

Total untrieds tried: 51 + chevron decals + 1 stamping plate



  1. I hate bar glitter but I actually don't mind the way you used it in this mani, awesome job! :D

  2. Yea, I actually kind of like it as a gradient like that. I don't usually like bar glitter either. So confused!

  3. I kind of like what you did with it here. I'm usually not a fan of bar glitters too.

  4. I hate bar glitter, but I've been warming up to micro bars. The poking through the topcoat is what really drives me mad.
    You totally rocked this though! The colours compliment Willow nicely. And I think you've made a Fuzzy Coat polish look as cute as it's ever going to get :) Congrats!

  5. If you want a bar glitter for a potential manicure check out Nails Inc. feathers formula. The bar pieces self-level and do not poke through top coat! I know Sephora is having a sale on one color right now :)

  6. ROFL! I love the "what was I thinking?" prompt! That is hilarious!
