Nails Post - Swatches? + My New Storage

I'm not a huge nail polish wearer, but I mostly always have my nails painted. Does that even make sense? I have a nice variety of colours, but I hate the look of chipped polish, so I try not to paint my nails with colourful polishes. I'm a big clear, or nude/pastel polish wearer.

Here are a few polishes that I've worn recently - these are actually over the last week, lol:


This is one of my first Color Club polishes, this is in "Lady Like"

I loveeee dark polishes, but only when it's pristine and fresh. It's a nice contrast against my skintone. This is Essie's "Sole Mate" with Wet n' Wild's Wild Shine Nail Color in "Night Prowl" on top.

This is what I have on my nails currently, this is China Glaze's "Peachy Keen" polish, with Sally Hansen's Complete Salon Manicure polish in "Hidden Treasure" on the index finger.

I also wanted to share my DIY nail polish storage that I came up with. Like most people, I keep my polishes all thrown together in an old shoe box - which led to a few broken bottle mishaps. I've been trying to come up with a nice way to keep it organized, but it's hard to think of a way other than purchasing a nail polish rack. I don't like the look of those, nor do I want to hang one up on my wall, so I had to find something else.

I came up with this:



It's fairly simple to make, and I don't have to worry about the glass bottles banging against each other. I do have to make another one because this only held about half of my polishes - but it keeps things organize nicely and I can see all my polishes without having to root around in a box.

Such an easy storage idea!

I hate going to Gerrard St too.. not only because of how crowded it is, but also because of the guys there! When I went to get the teeka though, I went when the stores had just opened in the daytime and was out of there by 2pm, so I didn't have to face the crowds or the weird guys
