I suppose every beauty addict has a collection of what I call “manicure necessities” which consists of nail polishes and other nail-related stuff.
One big reason for that might be the fact that these little colorful bottles are an instant gratification. And most of them are cheap.
Probably quite important reasons why most non-beauty addicts that I know have an impressive collection as well.
You just can’t stop buying them. That is why I decided to start a series where I show my collection of all things related to taking care and putting color on our nails.
I am perfectly aware that my collection is not as impressive as most of the things that I saw on the internet. I think this is also a way of keeping it real. Sometimes not everything that you see on the internet is a good thing.
I do love to see on Pinterest all those beautiful and huge collections of nail polishes. But, to be honest, sometimes I find it disheartening that I barely ever saw a small collection.
I feel this is my way of showing a real nail things’ collection of someone that is a beauty addict but a real person at the same time. And even more so, a collection of someone that is on a budget.
I used to have a lot more stuff in my collection, probably double than what you see here. This made me decide on only keeping what I really use. It was also an experiment: I stopped buying nail polishes for 6 months. I simply used what I already had.
That lead to a shocking discovery (at least for me): I CAN finish a bottle of nail polish without dropping on the floor. Using it for my manicure often enough is does just that. Who would have thought!?
Not me, that’s for sure. I was convinced that the only way to send nail polishes in the nail polish heaven is either for them to take that decision: becoming too thick or for me to accidentally drop it.
This is the first post of a series that will be published every Sunday. You will have the possibility to take a closer look at everything in that box.
