Show me your nails!

Show me your nails!

I'm loving this nail polish from Nails Inc. I used the superfood base coat, Nailkale in Victoria and finished it off with the 45 second top coat.  The color is so rich and easy to apply.

Re: Show me your nails!

I have a ton of nail polish, so I made this little book to help keep me organized. I thought I'd share it since others might benefit from it. I found a little binder thing that came with index cards that were already hole punched. I then used tabs to divide the sections. They are organized by color groups and finishes. I keep spare sheets in the back of the binder so when I'm at a store I can swatch it to compare to other colors I already own to see how similar they are. I thought others might be interested in making something similar. Smiley Happy

BRILLIANT... however I don't think I have time to swatch my bottles.. its too much and I need to get control!

Re: Show me your nails!

I understand that! I have around 150 bottles. I still need to swatch 20-30 of the new ones. My daughter likes to help, so I might let her handle the new ones. Smiley Very Happy I'm actually planning to go through and purge my collection soon. I have some old bottles where the colors are separated and kind of yucky. 

Re: Show me your nails!

I don't feel so bad, last time I checked I was at about 150 as well and that was a few months ago. I'm afraid to check now!

Wonderful idea! I think I'll be trying this.

Cool! I hope it ends up working out well for you, 123beauty. I am pretty sure I picked up the two-ring binder with the index cards at Walmart for really cheap. I would love to see your creation if you will share when you're done! Smiley Happy

Re: Show me your nails!

That is such a great idea, buxombabe!

Re: Show me your nails!

Thanks Randee! I saw a somewhat similar idea years ago and finally implemented my own spin on it. The problem is remembering to update the pages as I buy more polishes. Smiley Happy

Re: Show me your nails!

Such a good idea!!

Thanks Melissa! It was cheap to make. I just took sheets of a slightly heavier white paper and painted on a few coats of polish for the swatches. The only larger punch I could find was in the shape of a heart, so that's what I used to keep the size consistent. I wanted a circle, but I thought the heart was cute. Then I gave it to my kids for crafts projects. Then I used little double sized adhesive pieces to attach the hearts to the index cards. I think the adhesives were from when I did scrapbooking, so I know they won't yellow over time.

Re: Show me your nails!

I'm in love with these rings! I can't decide which I like better. (The above ring pic is what drew me into this thread.) Smiley Happy

Thanks, kittichick! The panther or leopard ring (not sure what it is) I found at a little, local boutique store. When I saw it, I snapped it up! Hopefully you can find something similar! Smiley Happy

Re: Show me your nails!

Ahhhhh I love that one too! I am off to google search to see if I can find some because now I have to have one.

Thanks! I'm glad you like it too! This ring goes across two fingers. I found it locally, but I'm sure there's plenty of similar rings out there! Have fun shopping! Smiley Happy

Re: Show me your nails!

Thanks, knuevekm! I love it too. I think I picked it up at Target a few years ago. I can't remember for sure. But I do remember it was pretty cheap!

Lovely, my dear.

I really love that light essie color. I know you like that brand a lot and I should give them a try already. 

Is the last color Pat on the Black by Sally Hansen?

If it is, can you believe I just painted my nails this color too? (layered over Red Zin, but still, very similar.) 

Re: Show me your nails!

Close, Samantha! The oxblood red color I'm wearing is Essie's Recessionista. It's pretty similar to Pat on the Black, but not quite as dark. I think the Instagram filter I used might be making it look a little darker than it really is. Smiley Wink
