My swatch tip bouqet

Yes, swatch tip bouquet, because it's not a bouquet of flowers, but it's just as gorgeous. This is one of the ways I choose what color to wear next. So many pretties...not including most of my frankens though - just what I have recorded in my spreadsheet. It always surprises me how many pinks and reds I have since those are the colors I wear least often.

Same photo, just rotated a bit. Don't forget you can click to see these super-sized!

I also have used my spreadsheet to make random choices before. A while ago I wore everything with 77 in either the item number or brand number. I've added quite a few polishes since then so  I should probably finish that up.

I think I may jump on the bandwagon and feature pink and green next in honor of breast cancer and depression awareness respectively. Okay, I'm off to shop from my stash!

  2. @Megan: You just made me laugh so hard! I know, it's kinda crazy to think each of those represents a bottle.

  5. @AnnKiins: I used to buy the packs of 100 full set tips for $6 or so from Rite Aid, however I founnd a beauty supply store where I now get packs of 50 - in whatever size I want - for $0.35. So much cheaper, and I buy just size zero - the largest - so I can have a nice big swatch.
