Get ready for a massive amount of posts! I’m finally getting a chance to catch up and have spring and summer collections being posted soon.
I’m very behind on my posts due to my job, but I will be posting again soon. I just wanted to let you all know that I am still adding to the lists and do get your comments and suggestions. I have a long list of corrections and additions that I’m also behind on. Thank you all for helping and following!
I’ve seen many bloggers store their nail polish collections in custom racks, wall shelves, drawer systems, and many other ways. There are some ways you don’t want to store your polish:
1. In the fridge – It is best to store nail polish in a cool, not cold, consistent temperature. Nail polish is mixed at room temperature, so there is a possibility that the pigments could separate from the rest of the solution if kept too cold. Also, taking it in and out of the fridge is too drastic for your precious polish and may thicken it over time.
2. In the bathroom – Since nail polish likes a consistent temperature, the bathroom isn’t a good place for storage either. Your shower/bath creates moisture which changes the temperature in your bathroom.
3. Near sunlight – UV light and the heat of the sunlight can cause the chemicals in your polish to separate. It can also fade or even change the color overtime.
4. Keep upright – Polish can settle in the cap, making it difficult to open later. I have thrown away a few bottles because of this because I couldn’t get the darn things open!
I’d love to buy the fancy drawer systems some people use, but I just don’t have the room. So I came up with a simple and inexpensive way of storing my polish. I bought the KASSETT box from Ikea. And when I run out of space, I just buy some more boxes. The ones I bought were $4 for two boxes. So how you store your polish?

I worked hard on my collection lists and I’m glad to see so many people are finding them. And I really appreciate those who have helped to add or change things. Next up, I have been working really hard on a gallery of pictures for the list. So in the future, you’ll be able to click on the collection title and see a picture of the collection. I will be letting you all know when each brand has been finished. It’s going to take me a while, but well worth it!
Body scrubs can get expensive. I’ve created a scrub recipe that I want to share that you can make at home for a lot less than name brand scrubs. I use salt as the main ingredient. You can use sugar but keep in mind that sugar attracts ants. I had an ant problem in my bathroom and they found my open jar of scrub when I used sugar in it.
**You can always add more of any ingredient to your liking.**
Mix all ingredients in jar with spoon and enjoy!
