Hi all :)
What seems like ages ago, I got a tip from Maria about where to buy swatch sticks.. I wanted to swatch my whole collection as to get an overview of it.. So I ordered 200 sticks thinking I would have some left future purchases.. What was I thinking?
Well I quickly realised that I didn't have enough, so I bought 200 more... That wasn't enough either!! How could I be so wrong about the number of polishes in my collection? :O
Well I've ordered 100 more (as far as I remember).. And i know that I have around 50 polishes left to swatch. Maybe I should have ordered more? :p This process has taken a long time, since they are shipped from Australia so it takes about 3-4 weeks for them to get here..
Well I was shocked to realise how many polishes I actually own! It doesn't feel right..
Well, here's the 400 swatch sticks with names and how many coats used.. Next to them are some nail wheels which I swatched some of the remaining polishes on..
And here they all are out on my floor, ready to get sorted..
Sorted into colors (and a group of glitters/flakies/color chaning polishes etc.)
And here they all are, assembled and everything :) This is how are store them right now, but I think I need to find a better solution..
For a long time I've thought about counting my polishes, but didn't know how to do it best and wouldn't really want to admit how many polishes I own.. But now I know I have around 450.. And I think it's way to many for me!! And I was quite surprised.. haha.. So know I need to clean out in my stash..
Have you ever been surprised by how many polishes you actually own? And now I'm curious - how many polishes do you own? :D And how do you keep an 'overview' of your polishes?
Have fun and take care =)
