I love a fresh manicure. There are so many gorgeous shades of polish out there that I dedicated a Pinterest board for discovering new shades & creativity.
…have you heard about the Louboutin mani?! and to think, I thought the Stiletto mani was somethin’ else!
although I love nail polish, the problem I have is that I tend to be drawn to one particular shade like a moth to a flame. Bright deep pink ALWAYS catches my eye! It started several summers back when a nail tech introduced me to Essie’s Exotic Liras… I was hooked.
But since then I’ve purchased several similar shades & I’m always surprised by how many duplicates I end up with SO I had to stop the madness!
And this is how I did it...
- Bought a set of nail polish color wheels at Sally’s. They’re super cheap – you get 10 for $5.99 & it’s even less with their discount card so get into that if you haven’t.
- Painted 1-2 coats of each polish I own to a nail on the wheel.
- Used a fine tipped sharpie to write the name of the polish on the back of the nail coated with it’s shade.
- Store the wheel in the same plastic bin with all of my polishes for easy shade selection.
Voila! That’s how I store my polish shades. Simple but so useful.
