My Pathetic Nail Polish Stash

Okay - I used to own about 10-12 bottles of nail polish, not one of them costing over $5 a bottle.Then I made the mistake of trying some China Glaze and then some Essie and THEN I tried Illamasqua - I am in so much trouble! I don't have a very big stash right now but I thought I would take some "before" photos so that we can see how my baby is growing. If I could afford it, I would own 300 bottles by now but we'll have to start slowly and work our way there. So here are some pics - I started out having them sorted by color but then I would find one that should have been in the last group 2 photos ago and I got lazy so you get what you get and you don't get upset!

Well, there she blows! All 73 bottles! I know pathetic, right? Well, I'll be changing that soon, muahahaha! Also, while I wish that every bottle I own could be Essie or OPI and the other nice polishes, my bank account can't handle that kind of stress so I will continue to be an equal opportunity polisher. Besides, a lot of the cheap stuff is really decent for the price!

If you see anything that you would like swatched, please aske me! Sorry for the inconsistency in the pics, I was trying to get the very last of the fading light for true color photos so I chose the pics that translated the colors best. Also, I'm still being out-classed by my Canon Rebel T3i - this thing is a beast and I need to learn to use it!

  1. I'd love to see Sinful Colors What's Your Name, ta very much :) And that's not pathetic. I think you have the same if not more than me! :)

  2. I'd be happy to swatch that for you! I'm glad to hear that I'm not the only one with a small stash!

    1. It works for me and there's a little of every color! It's just that there's so many that I want! Lol!

  4. My stash is even smaller since I just started a couple of weeks ago. I have only some drugstore finds in a town with 2,000 people. For YEARS I'd only wear NYC Canal Street or similar colors. Seriously!
