Show and Tell

(Click photo for MUCH bigger!)

Show and Tell is wasted on elementary schoolers. Join in here.

Today I'm showing my collection of nail polishes . I recently took them out of a makeup case and now have them living on top of my chest of drawers. I arranged them by colour. That way I can see exactly what I have and don't have. I went through every polish and gave away those that I didn't absolutely love.

On the left out of picture is a box with files and buffers in. On top of that is a bag with my nail art supplies in - striper polishes, konad plates and polishes and the little fruit decals I bought on eBay. Behind that is my removers and cotton wool pads, and my base coat and top coat. I figured that by leaving them in conspicuous view I wouldn't lose them - I actually have lost a base coat and some Seche Vite somewhere that I have no clue where. I had to buy more. My base coat is generic stuff from Superdrug, and I never used to use a top coat but I love Seche Vite. Oh, you can see it in the photo, near the remover.

I am not fancy about nail polish. I like cheap stuff and expensive stuff. One of my very favourites is a bright red creme from Maybelline (you can see it right in the back, fourth along). The silver right in the front right is one of OPI's minis (I forget its name right now) and that's a definite favourite too.

I'm currently wearing one that you won't find in the photo. My friend Jeni sent me the pastel cremes from Claire's that I was completely loving. I'm currently wearing the purple from that collection, which is pastel but with a slight shimmer. It's very spring-like and sexy!

Wow!! Love all the colors! Do you do nails professionally or just yours?

Nice collection! I LOVE o.p.i polishes. I find they last longer.

Wow! That's a lot of colors. I'll have to show this to my husband, so he knows that I'm not crazy for having a large selection.

o_O Wow. So many. Like a glittering treasure. That's a lot of polish ! I have three or four and I manage to waste it.

Well, now. I have two bottles of nail polish and have been buying the same Sally Hansen Hard as Nails products for years.

Old dog here.

Wow - that looks like my collection...I love different polishes. I agree OPI seems to last a full week...no chips...so nice.
