Talk It Out Tuesday: U + Nail Polish 4EVER?
Welcome to the first "Talk It Out Tuesday" of the year.
Today's topic is basically will you love nail polish forever? Will you love it the same way you love it now? If you're a blogger, how long do you see yourself blogging about nail polish?
It's difficult to predict. I'm typically someone who has fleeting interests. I like things intensely for a short amount of time then I'm done with them. It has been different about nail polish. There are a few things that I just cling to. I've been into nail polish for 3 years now, so I think that is sticking. It's hard for something that has had such prevalence in my life to completely disappear.
I'm sure there will be a time in my life when I'm no longer collecting. I may buy a bottle here and there, but I think I will always love nail polish. It's hard to imagine a time like that though. We know how collections are, some are limited edition with outstanding colors. It's hard to picture myself at a point where I'm not always interested in what's coming out and perusing the stores for pretties! That being said, I'm at a transitioning point in my life. I'm in college, and I do not have a full time career. I wonder once I do make those adjustments, if nail polish will become a lower priority simply because of time? Who knows?
As for blogging. I am simply shocked at this point I've been at this almost 2 years. I'm someone who never was able to keep a journal or anything of that sort. I absolutely love blogging. It is something I look forward to. I also love reading other peoples blogs. I love interacting with bloggers. It's so much more than just blogging. It is a part of my life. I'm sure at some point in my life, blogging will have to take a backseat. I do not want to be negative, but it's hard to imagine myself still blogging in 5 years. I wonder if any of us will be still blogging in 5 years? It's not so much as maybe a time constraint thing as it's a question if blogging will still relevant in 5 years? Will blogging become obsolete? These are questions I often think about?
The funny thing is thinking about this makes me sad! I'm definitely not at any point to let go of nail polish or blogging that's for sure. I mean, just thinking about there being a time when I don't care as much is depressing. I love nail polish. It's such a great way to explore color, feel put together, connect with others, and spend more money than you'd ever want to because you can't imagine life with out that amazing new color. Too much to love there!
I will say this. If there does come a time I'm not into nail polish as much, I am for sure not going to get rid of any LE or HTF pretties. I'm going to hang on to those for years until they're going for $$$$$$$ on eBay or whatever. I will shamelessly sell those babies and make bank! Maybe in 2050 my China Glaze OMG holos will give me a down payment on a house? :P Come on guys? I'm sure you all have thought about stuff like this too...right?
