Gratuitous Nail Polish Collection Photos...

Tuesday, November 22, 2011

Just like the title says - just some gratuitous nail polish collections photos because I bought myself a pretty new rack for them! I wish I had a before photo of how disgusting they all looked shoved in a basket. I had so many ignored colors! Now I can see them all when I choose to do my nails, which as I've mentioned before is literally every other night (sometimes sooner!)

Don't they look so pretty organized by color? I've called Kevin into my craft room at least fifteen times to ramble on about how nice they look. I'm just crazy about it.

Since I really couldn't find much online about racks (I was mostly looking for decent photos to get an idea of what they looked like) I was hesitant to spend over 15 bucks on them but I took a risk and couldn't be happier! I bought this one, it is supposed to hold 90 nail polishes. It's currently holding 89 and, as you can see, has room for a few more.

Hope you're having a great Tuesday!!
xoxo!!

  3. I read my bf the part about you calling Kevin 15x to come look at it bc I do that too when I'm excited about something! I love the blues and greens, I definitely would love this collection. I love painting my nails, it makes you feel more put together. :)

  4. Ahh, that looks so neat! Too bad I don't have wallspace to put something like this (and I don't have enough nailpolishes to fill it, yet... haha).

  6. AAh this is amazing! I'm so jealous of your collection! One day.
    Although I keep all mine in the fridge. My mum told me it stops them from going gloopy, or is that just another crazy myth she's made up?

  7. Mmm, I definitely want one. My entire nail polish collection is currently stuffed into an old huggies wet wipe dispenser. It's not pretty. This is fantastic.

  10. I really like it! You're right, they look super pretty displayed by color that way! My nail polish collection isn't THAT big yet, so I don't think a rack like that is warranted quite yet. But a new bottle of nail polish is my favorite way to treat myself, so I can see needing something like this in the future, ha ha!

  13. It looks great. I need one of those!

  14. Looks really nice and neat! I need one of these! When I buy nail polish I think it's better to spend $20 on a bunch of nail polish than paying $20 for getting my nails done. Oh and I love love that glitter polish from Revlon The 3rd pic, I put it on top of all my nail polishes!

  15. You've gotten me into wearing nail nailpolish again :) So I've been addicted to buying pretty colors. The only thing I'm worried about is how long does a bottle last once it's opened?

  16. What a cool rack! And seeing so many colors together makes me happy! :P

    Hope you're having a colorful week!

  19. This is so awesome!! I love rainbow-organized nail polish so much! I have mine on a little shelf in my bedroom in rainbow order but I only have about 20 bottles so far. 80 more to go and I then am totally buying this rack!

  21. I spy with my little eye some silly Hot Topic Morbid nail polish ;) (says the girl who is in her 8th year of employment there.) LOVE your collection and the display.

  25. So...I'm probably going to copy you and buy one too! My nail polish is all on one small shelf and on my dresser. Taking up so much room. They look so pretty all displayed like that. :]
    You sure have a lot of blues and greens

  32. I really want one of those for my nailpolish too! I don't have as much as you do, but I always buy a new one every time I go to CVS or Target. Right now I've started buying pretty top coats :)
    Love and Turtledoves,

  36. I just might have to get one of those shelves, too!

    And this is unrelated to nail polish, but this toadstool tutorial I just found made me think of you.

  39. i thought my nail polish collection was extensive, but you have me beat! what will you do when you buy 2 more polishes?

    ReplyDelete
  40. Since you're a thrifting pro, you could even try to find an old spice racks to use (once this is filled up of course). I've seen some girls use spice racks for their nail polish collection and I always thought it looked really cute.

    ReplyDelete
  41. damn girl, I thought I had a lot of nail polish! this does look really pretty all organized by color, the rack is a really smart way to store those

    ReplyDelete
  42. Oh I love it! That is quite the collection! :)

  43. This has nothing to do with the post above, but I am too excited to wait to leave it on a post about thrifting!

    Today I was in my local, very small thrift store and I was just browsing, like I do once or twice every week, and I found a Polaroid box and decided to look in it and found an instant film camera (!!!) I was so excited! I went straight to the counter and asked the man if it worked. He said he didn't know but I could bring it back if it didn't. I took it home and forgot about it until about 8pm. I looked up how much film was for it (it varies from $50 dollars to $140 dollars) then I was playing with it. I found out it works (!!!) AND still has left over film in it!!! Ah so excited. I feel like you because you ALWAYS find awesome stuff in thrift stores and lately I haven't.

    If you were curious as to what kind it is, the instructions say 600, 636 and 637. Hopefully you can help me on what that means but it says it takes 600 film, which is what I looked up.

    :)

  45. I don't usually comment but i just had to say that that is so freaking cool. that rack is just perfect and the colours kill me with pretty. :)

    ReplyDelete
  46. Wow, what a great display!

    So, if you change your nails that often, you must have a very trusty reliable remover that you use. Do you mind sharing what it is? Sometimes I get deterred from making my nails the pretty colors I want because removal is such a pain.

  47. Insanely awesome idea! I might need to look into this as my collection grows.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Woah, Kaylah, your collection of nail polish colours is even bigger than I thought! Amazing and what a neat idea to keep track of all the different colours and style options.

    ReplyDelete
  49. OMG, I love it so much my heart hurts! I borrowed one of the pictures for my nail polish blog, please tell me if it's not okay!

  51. Ooh, so pretty! I really want one, too. I have mine organized by color in my medicine cabinet, but many of them are getting all scrunched up together in a pile now because there is no room for my growing collection. I don't have nearly as many as you, though!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Ohh gosh I SO need to do this with my collection! I would be squeeing about it too. :)

  57. Holy crap this is awesome! If I had a good place to put this, I would buy one in a heartbeat. I don't have anywhere near that much nail polish, YET, but at least I would know I had room to keep growing my collection! So great.
