400-plus tips

This reminds me of a show on HGTV that has something to do with color - can't remember it's name. Either way, if I need any incentive to stop buying nail polish, this is it.

I put all my swatched tips in color groups (not as easy as I thought it would be) and here they are. I like this configuration because I can store these by color and the polishes by brand. This way I can "shop" for a color I want to wear, use the tip number to find out what bottle it is, and go grab the color. This is usually the way I decide what polish to wear. Enough talk. First is the pic of all of them, then close-ups of each side.

Bottom left = my only three holographic polishes.


  1. WOW! That is major organization right there. Cool!
    I'm debating on buying nail wheels to swatch...or maybe I should do tips. :)

  2. I like your thinking...What a good idea!! :)

  3. Wow, how organised are you!

    I literally just moved house so I couldn't even vaguely tell you where my polishes are at the moment!

  4. Wow I love how organised that is. I don't have half as many as that but they are all thrown in a big box so it's still pretty difficult to find what I'm looking for.

  5. Wow! Can I shop from your collection, too? Haha. :)

  6. I wish I was this organized in real life! This is the one project I told myself I'd see through from start to finish - I usually don't finish what I start (note to self - need to refocus on my sewing, those piles of fabric aren't going to sew themselves!)

    @ch3rryco1a - sure, if you're in Los Angeles somewhere! I almost wish my bottles were all half empty so I'd at least know I was using them up.
