My Polish Collection and Storage

Hi readers! I recently posted my OPI collection, and today I have some pictures of all my polishes and how I store my polishes. So I have these 4 shoe boxes which are plastic and have pull out drawers, and they are stackable. I bought these from Wal-Mart least year, I'm not sure if they have them anymore, but I'm sure you can find something similar!
So I tend to organize my polishes by brand rather than by colour.

In the first drawer pictured below, I have Rimmel, Essie, Joe Fresh, Gosh, Mood polishes, China Glaze, American Apparel, and some randoms
In the next one, I have Orly, Nfu-Oh, more China Glaze, Chanel, Deborah Lippman, Zoya, Nicole by OPI, and more randoms
In this next one I have all of my OPI's
And in the last one I have more OPI, BYS, Sulla, Sally Hansen, Colour Club, Milani, and some more randoms!
I hope you enjoyed checking out my polish collection! My friends seem to think I have a lot, but I have seen a lot of bloggers with MUCH MUCH more! But as for now, I am happy with my collection!

How do you store your polish? What is your favourite polish brand? Favourite polish ever? What do people have to say about all your polishes?!

Mint Comparision

Hi lovely readers!
Today I have a short comparison post, comparing the 3 minty polishes that I have.
L to R: Essie Mint Candy Apple, ELF Mint Cream, Milani Dressmaker

As you can see, these are all very different, and Milani dressmaker doesn't really fit in with the others as much as I thought it would it's a lot more green! the Elf polish was SUPER difficult to apply and I did not like it but for a $1 it's not TOO bad. the Essie Polish has to be my FAVOURITE out of all 3, it's the nicest mint polish ever, and so easy to apply! I don't have China Glaze Refresh Mint to try, but I assume it's the perfect mint polish!

What is your favourite mint nail polish?
Do you like mint nail polish or no?

About me: kreativ blogger award

YAY! thank you to Sugar Coated Tips who tagged me! If you haven't seen her blog, be sure to check it out, she deserves way more followers!
So rules are to list 10 facts about yourself and tag 10 other blogs!

My 10 facts:
1. I've lived in 5 different cities in 20 years
2. I was born in Nigeria
3. I'm an only child, and most people ask "do you like being an only child" and if you asked me when I was younger, I would have said no, but now I say yes!
4. If I don't like someone, I won't waste my time pretending I like them, because life is short and I would rather spend time with people that I actually like
5. I'm not one of those people that needs to be around other people all the time I probably learned that from being an only child, but then again, I like being around people too (but not all the time!)
6. I love stationery - pens, pencils, pretty paper, highlighters, post-it notes, so I love Staples (it's heaven!)
7. I used to collect coins and stamps when I was little and thought I was the coolest kid ever!
8. For four years I worked as a lifeguard and swimming instructor, and I loved it! This summer I am taking a break to work in a more office like environment, and I will probably be back to teaching lessons in the Fall. Most kids are awesome, but some kids, are EVIL!
9. I speak 4 languages - English, Hindi, French, and Spanish - Spanish I'm definatley a beginner but I could get by, and French, I have a horrible accent, but I can understand what people are saying (mostly) but I hate speaking it
10. I love to travel. I've been to a lot places around the world and I love it. Learning about new cultures and seeing how people live around the world is amazing!

my OPI collection

Today I have a post which is a little different! I have some pictures of my OPI's! This is the brand that I have the most of, and it's what made me want to start collecting polish! I store my polish in 4 plastic shoe boxes and one and 1/4 is OPI! I love the bottle shape, the quality, the brush, and the colours.

This collection took me many years to accumulate and all of my friends know I love polish so I often get OPI as gifts so all of these weren't purchased by me!
If you have pictures of your polish collections, post a link in the comments section!
What is your favourite brand of nail polish?
Is there any OPI polish that you can see that I'm missing and you think I should get?!

My dressmaker polish is going to come off soon so I might do another konad, watermarble OR if I find those sally hansen nail strips I am gonna try those!

Thanks for reading! :) and Thanks again to all of my new subscribers! if you like my blog, it would be great if you could put me in your blog roll! :)

milani dressmaker

How annoying was that that blogger was down!? so frustrating! today, I have a polish that I am SURE all of you have heard of, and it is Milani Dressmaker. This was sent to me by Michy from Original Wacky (THANK YOU!) - if you haven't seen her blog yet, go check it out, she has great posts about polish and her animal friends!

The true colour of this polish is pretty hard to explain, but it's a minty green with gold flecks? Getting a picture of the true colour is difficult, but you get the idea!
As for the application of this polish, it was very thin which made it hard to apply this was about 5 coats I think? But so worth it for the end result!

Thanks for reading! What do you think about this colour? What is your favourite minty green polish?

silver shatter!

Hi guys!
Today I have OPI's Mod About You, with the new Silver Shatter. I think it looks so awesome! The thing about the black shatter, is that it looks slightly halloweenish and better for Winter/Fall, but the silver shatter is great for spring and summer!
What do you think about the colour combination? Would you recommend any other polishes from the Pirates of the Caribbean Collection? Thanks for reading!
