Introducing the Nail Polish Untried Challenge!!

[Edit and update!]
I would LOVE it if you were to do this challenge! Just copy the image and use it on your blog! I do ask, however, that you do not alter the image to remove the guidelines or the credit back to my blog. I worked very hard on making this challenge a reality. Thank you for the credit. ♥♥♥

Feel free to do this challenge at any time! I am no longer working on it, so whenever you want to start, please do! Go at your own pace and have fun! Get a group and do it together. Just have fun!



Hey all! If any of you are like me, you have WAY too many polishes that you've never used. They just sit on your shelf or in your drawer looking super pretty and untouched...I decided I needed a really good reason to use them, so I created this fun and simple challenge!

I've looked all over the interwebs to find a challenge like this, but I didn't find one quite the same, so I had to make one!!

I will begin this Untried Polish Challenge within the week, and I'd LOVE it if others wanted to try this challenge as well!

This challenge is especially for collectors who have many untrieds. The minimum is 19, but I plan on using many more than that! Of course, if you don't have 19, do it anyway and just get rid of the challenges you don't want to do! If you don't have one for every specific challenge, use a color that is the closest match.
Choose wisely, because you can't use the color again! The order doesn't matter, so use those colors however you need to.

You define what 'Untried' means. To me, it's any color I've never had on for a day, or used in anyway in a design. I'll try to even steer clear of the colors I've swatched on even one nail and then taken off a few minutes after(but no promises). Use your judgement on your own bottles, though! =)

I can't wait to see some of your polishes, and I can't wait to share many of mine! If you are interested in joining the challenge with me, let me know in the comments. I'd like to start on Sunday, then do one mani on every third day from there out. Please let me know if you'd like to join so I can be sure to tag you in each post! [Edit] Post your blog in the comments if you will be doing this with me! This way I know exactly who to tag.

PS - Did I just scrap the rest of my 31 Day challenge? Yes, yes I did. =)

  3. I love this idea! I'll be saving it to do later, for sure, since I'm already doing a month long Autism Awareness challenge!

  4. This sounds awesome, and totally do-able for me! I'll probably do mine once a week though :)

  5. oh i am totally going to do this! but my posting will be pretty random since i do a few other challenges here and there. some days i can do daily, others i might not post for a week! but i just went through my huge stash of untrieds and pulled out like 50 to try and get used in the next 2 weeks - this will help tremendously!

  12. Would love to do this...but am in an ABC Challenge, and keeping up with that once a week is about all I can do. Twice a week is beyond my schedule right now, I'm afraid.

    It is a GREAT idea though! I definitely have a lot of lonely polishes that need a little attention!

    Also, would you like us to link back to your blog? Or is there an inklinkz or badge or anything you would like to accompany our posts? Am I overwhelming you with questions? LOL!

    1. Sorry for the late response. i would love to add you! I'll tag you in the challenge for today and every after. It's just a list of names I copy and paste each post. There is the 4th challenge today(4/30) and every 3rd day after. Feel free to start late and finish after us. (or catch up, however you need to!)

      If you want to tag the other bloggers doing this challenge, just copy the list from my posts and replace you with me. =)

    2. Thanks so much! I have a quick question, the two and three color days, does that mean post two and three different swatches or two and three polishes in one mani?

      Delete
    3. My thought of it was 2 colors one mani, but really it's up to interpretation! I like the idea of swatches! I did 2 and 3 colors on one mani. =)

      Another interpretation that I've seen different: the idea I had behind 'color'. I was thinking one color = one bottle. A few others thought of one color as in green, and used multiple shades and bottles. But that is correct, as well!

  22. Hi, I started this challenge today and I put the list of participant in my blog. Thanks for this wonderful challenge, I really love the idea. One question, I have a lot of glittery top coats and crackel effects, is that ok for this challente too? I think half of my untried polish are in those categories. This is the link to my first post http://isaspinods.blogspot.it/2013/05/unas-untried-polish-challenge-day-1-one.html

  28. I'm so sorry that I haven't gotten back to you! I DO want to do this challenge, but since I'm starting so late in the game, should I pick up where everyone else is, or can I start from the beginning? My name is Erica Jane (or just Jane, whichever) and my blog is Coat Of Mani Colors at http://absolutevarnish.blogspot.com/ And when does the next day start? My apologies again for saying that I was going to do this, and then being late. Life, it get in the way of important polishing! ;)
