Hello! I am currently in love with nail polish. I paint my nails every Sunday. I have collected so many different polishes, and they are stored in the back of my makeup drawer because I don't use them as regularly as I use my other products. This makes them hard to see. Also. I have many collections of box sets that I have to pull out if I want to see what colors I have. This can make it difficult to pick a color to paint my nails.

Recently, I have been in an organizing mood, especially with my makeup collection, so I thought I would find a better way to organize my nail polish collection. I picked up color wheels from Sally Beauty Supply for $4.94 (They were on sale!). With ten wheels in the package and eighteen nails on each wheel, I think this was quite the bargain!
Actually painting the wheels and keeping a record of what color went where was quite time consuming. It took me about two hours to do this, as I wanted everything done well. I made sure each nail was well painted so that I would have an accurate picture of what the color would look like on my nails.
I snapped some photos of my OPI and Essie colors to share with you. The majority of my collection is OPI, but I'm really loving Essie at the moment. I definitely will be looking to them when I want to expand my collection. The other few colors are random brands.

|Teal the Cows Come Home, Divine Swine, Thanks a Windmillion, Blasted Gold|
|Base Coat, Iris I Was Thinner, Top Coat, Nail Polish Remover|
**I absolutely abhor the name of this nail polish. I hate what it implies. I never would have purchased the color, but it was Sephora's 500 point perk, so I got it for free. Also, I really needed a base and top coat.**
