All pages have been updated. Enjoy!
I’m really surprised this site still gets traffic. Several of you have written me about various things and asked if I’m still updating this site.
Two years ago I had a daughter and I just didn’t have the time to keep this site going. I also have another daughter that requires a lot of my time due to health issues. She is doing better and my youngest is becoming more independent, so I have a little more free time on my hands.
I’ve decided to keep updating the list but I won’t be posting pictures. I figured those of you who are interested in what the colors look like can find them on the MANY makeup sites/blogs out there. Stay tuned.
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?
