How much nail polish do you own?

Recommended Posts

My spreadsheet count is at 577 and that was in November. I keep buying...but I have slacked off a lot (truly I have). I'm more decisive in what I buy now & I hardly ever pay full price for polish. I know once Summer comes I'll probably be in trouble though. I don't dare get a rack cause that would show my addiction to the world...and we wouldn't want that. madno.gif

These are awesome. Looks like just some wood, paint and nails but they turned out great. claps.gif

Those homemade nail polish racks look great, but I am afraid to hang my polish on the wall because of earthquakes. Maybe if there were a skinny bar across the front, like a seatbelt in principle. There are probably some spice racks that would work well, huh?

My thought exactly, I want a rack for my nail polish, but I would add something on the front...just in case you know?

I just bought 10 more polishes today... but they were all on sale(so that makes it ok, right?) And I also have like 7 or 8 more on their way from when Orly was on hautelook(should be here tomorrow, I'm SO EXCITED)

Anyone willing to hand craft polish racks for you is a good egg. Now she just needs to start making them, painting them up pretty, and selling them on Etsy!

That would just be a matter of adding one more small piece of wood onto the front.

I got one of these racks to hold my polish:

 

700

 

 

(source: the amazon product)

 

It's not very large and doesn't hold everything I have, but I think it's really cute-looking and classy. I'm going to get another one as soon as I figure out what else I want from amazon and get a few more GC from swagbucks. It only holds ~40-50 polishes (well, probably more for me since I have a lot of Juleps)  and you have to double stack them, but it's very reasonably priced for what it holds. I'm getting another one when I get the chance because I had like ~60 polishes when I got this and now I've over 100 orz. If I'm going to need a third of these, I'll have more problems than needing to pay $15 for another rack haha.

 

My one complaint about these is that they have no back support... I think these are supposed to be mounted on the wall, but if you just lean it up against something and the move it, allt he polish will fall out. Best to attach it to something sturdy like a dresser or bookshelf if your'e worried about having to fill wall holes.

Also, did anyone else check out workplaypolish.com's mani cave? (LOL I talk about her blog so much it's almost like i'm plugging her. orz i'm just a fan.) When I saw her collection, I was like, "Huh, that doesn't look like that much..." Then I actually did the calculations, and she has about 400 bottles. I think I'm just jaded from looking at polish lining the walls of salons. XD; Though her personal collection is enough to run a salon!

I am sporting a few wall racks like this one that I got from Head 2 Toe Beauty:

 

 

700

 

Plus I have a bunch that I don't have racks for yet that are stuffed into my big pink plastic chest of drawers.

These nail polish shelves are so pretty!  I agree it's decoration. 

 

I never wore polish until I got into subscription boxes.  I only have 1 bottle of Julep right now and it's about empty.  Should be getting a bottle from Little Black Bag soon but by then I bet I'll be done with my Julep and will be back to 1 bottle.  :P

Aww you're so nice to give it away XD;; I'd try and sell it.

 

You know there's a community called polishsale on Livejournal, right? I think you need to have MUA/ebay and take paypal, but you can sell your polish there.

Sooo yesterday morning I had 96 nail polishes. That night I had 106 and tonight I have 113...**sigh** I'm obsessed. Also, China Glaze's Pure Joy(christmas 2012) is EXACTLY Orly's Devil May Care...I now have 2 of the SAME glitter. That's annoying as @!#*

I have just over 700, but I'm gearing up for a big purge.  Ideally, I'd like to cut that number in half... so I can use my Alex for more than polish storage.

How much nail polish do I own...hrm....definitely not enough lol my hubby thinks I'm crazy with my obsession for polishes. He honestly thinks I have so much, but I think I only have between 50-60, if that. I really need to show him what a TRUE nail polish lovers collection looks like! lol :-D

I had around 150+ but I purged and gave my Mom around 40 or so polishes for the granddaughter's. But I can't walk out of anyplace that sells polish unless I buy a few...Sad addiction once more, I need intervention.

Haha told my hub we could decorate the house with beautiful packaged makeup and polishes so I could justify having more. He didn't go for the decorating part but he doesn't whine about my purchases. He's a good hub.

    • No, it does not affect my self-esteem either way.  Tbh I feel most confident when I'm not wearing makeup.  Perhaps makeup application can be seen by many women as a form of self-care but it's actually more hygienic not to wear it often (sounds weird but it's true), and imo women are coerced into its application by jobs, other women, and men.  Women are pressured to perform femininity or they will be met with violence, which doesn't stop at makeup application (which is a skill not an art form).
    • Week 2 of my new plan, with my new concept of time as two mini work weeks (Mon-Wed and Fri-Sat) and two mini weekends (Thursday and Sunday). I think this will help with not getting as tired during the work week or bored during the weekends. Being bored during the weekends leads to spending on shopping or eating! I like the new plan so far.  I finished my full sized Yves Rocher White Botanical Cleanser. That's the White Botanical Cleanser and Toner done, and a few days of Cream left. The goal for the rest of July is to use that cream up along with one pack of 20 face cleansing cloths.  I have a nine month supply of cleanser and cleansing cloths to finish.
