It’s a Rainbow of Organization!

Look what I finally did:


And I don’t just mean that I arranged my nail wheels into as cute little circle.   What I do mean is that I finally got all of my polishes swatched onto nail wheels!  This will just make it so easy to figure out which polishes I want to use going forward, and it makes it a lot easier to remember what I have, too.

by nail blogger standards, I think I have a pretty modest collection at just north of 200 polishes.   (I know there are those of you out there in the quadruple digits.)   Even so, I would find myself forgetting what the opacity or finish of a particular polish was like.  Now I can have that info right at my fingertips!

I started by kind of grouping all of my polishes by color.  I sort of made up my own color groups as needed, like “dark neutrals, light neutrals, etc.  Then I wrote the name of the color on the back side of each “nail”.  Next I painted two coats of each polish on designated “nail”.  This was sort of a long and slow but fun process.

It made me remember how pretty some of my older polishes are, and how great of a formula some of my frequently ignored polishes have.   Because I was consistent with putting two coats on each nail, it’s easy to pick out which of my polishes are jellies or crellies, which is always a good thing to know.  And now when I have a friend come over to get her nails painted, I don’t have to drag out all of my polishes; I can just present her with my cute little wheels!

That’s all I have to say about nail polish today.  I do want to let you all know that I’ve got a LOT of stuff on my plate next week, so I think I’m going to take a little break from posting.  I’ve got some really great stuff happening in my life next week, and I’ll fill you in after the fact.  I’ll be posting again for sure the week of October 19, and I might get a chance to post a little something next week.  Not sure yet.

Thanks for reading, liking and commenting!  You all are swell people!

  1. Janelle, you are an inspiration both in the fact that you don’t have only two dozen polishes and that you do great things working with your collection AND that you charted it all on wheels!
    I hope your “great stuff” is super-stuff!
