Wheels K2, L2, and M2: Green Shimmers of Various Persuasions

I have been painting wheels like an obsessed person whenever I've had a suitable window of time over the last couple months, so I've got quite a backlog of photos of them. Today for Nail Wheel Wednesday, I've got three green shimmer wheels. As I get deeper into my stash, the wheels are getting more jumbled; these are all the same color/finish but I can forsee the last wheel being "everything left in the drawer".

Unless I figure out a way to stop time between now and Sunday, I'm not going to make my goal of getting my whole stash swatched on wheels by the first weekend in November. Maybe, just maybe, I can do it by the end of the year. I've got a chunk of time blocked out this weekend to work on the project, so will have a better idea after that where I stand. The problem is holiday collections are starting to show up, and I know I'll be adding some polishes from those. Much as it pains me to think about the possibility, I might have to do a no buy one of these months.

  4. I'm speechless. I just own three or four polishes out of 60! I love greens and I can't choose between L and M wheels.
    No buy during these months? I think it would be really hard, especially being in U.S. with all these new collections coming out :-/

  12. Thanks for the comments, ladies!

    mrsrexy, my absolute favorite green? I'm not really sure--I love so many.

    maisenzasmalto, I agree, very hard. Maybe after I get my Essie Luxe Effects, I'll consider a no-buy. :)

    Nail Art Epicness, I buy my wheels from Trans Design--they have them in the "nail art displays" section. I've seen similar ones on Born Pretty in the "practice and display" section.
