Feeling the Monday blues? For once I'm actually handling them fine, though that’s probably due to the fact that I was working yesterday so technically haven’t really had a weekend haha! Woe to me ;) But a most fab occurrence took place today that completely made my day, if you follow me on Instagram you’ll know (aysh_xox) that I hit the jackpot in finding the bargain of the century...Revlon Parfumerie polishes in Pound World! Oh yes I tell no lie & I may have gone a bit crazy but it would've been sacrilege to walk away empty handed so I may have picked up 1 or 2 *cough... 9...cough* So be sure to visit your local Pound World too!
Now I'm sure it comes as no surprise when I admit that I own...um...quite a FAIR amount of nail polishes O_o Especially when little situations like the above occur often! ;) And I'll confess that it has come to a stage where I find myself reusing a lot of the same polishes thus leaving many unloved! So I decided to create my own little Polish Swatch Book in which I'll swatch all new polishes I add to my collection so that I know what I have & can give the more unloved ones some proper usage! First I needed a pretty swatch book, naturally ;) This I picked up from WH Smith, I adore the design!
I got this fab idea from the Youtube nail guru that is CutePolish, who is one seriously talented lady, if you haven't checked her videos where have you been?! Anyhoos she shared this utterly brilliant idea of a polish swatch book & I knew this would be the perfect solution for me. Having all of my polishes swatched on paper would make it much easier to pick shades for my manis.
I mean I know that I probably own dozens of different types of red & the task of sifting through all of them to find THE perfect one for a mani is a daunting one to say the least! This way, I can now sift through the book & find the perfect polish I need plus it also makes it easier to remember what I used last. So I can sift through the book a bit further till I find another polish that could work well too!
I can squeeze about 10 -14 polish swatches per page & made sure of course to note down the brand, polish name as well as where it can be located! As you can see I've done some of my Barry M & KIKO's etc...but there's still a fair few to go! Haha! ;)
Thanks Cute Polish for the fab idea! Now hopefully all the polishes I own can get equal usage! Thanks as always for reading lovelies!
Lotsa love to ya!
