Darn you enablers and your nail blogs!

To start things off, my mom dug around and found her lil Konad set she bought around 6 years ago after seeing me browse through some nail blogs. Here is her Easter Sunday Konadicure. Cute huh? I've been so obsessed with polish lately- it's what I look for now instead of makeup when I go out shopping. Don't worry, makeup will always be #1 in my heart! I have just exhausted pretty much every avenue in the way of drugstore makeup- I can never find anything I want anymore. I only buy boring makeup things from drugstores or Sally Beauty now, like concealer, or powder... bleh. It's online makeup shopping for me. But nail polish, I find a lot I like in stores! I want to place an order soon from Transdesign or Victoria Nail Supply. I thought it would be interesting to show you my nail polish collection before and after I started devouring nail blogs. BEFORE- my collection at the end of December NEW&USED: polishes I've bought since then, and tried UNUSED- polishes I have bought since then but have not yet tried Let me now show you just the before & after pics of my collection together! DECEMBER 2009 APRIL 2010 I never had any base or top coats before! I'd like to take a picture again in a few months to see how the collection has grown. If you want to know what a color is, just tell me where it is in the picture and I'll let you know (images are clickable for full size). I tried to at least keep the brand labels showing to make it easier. I have the next two days off from work, so I can paint my nails! Yay! I follow a lot of nail blogs, but these are the ones that most often cause my lemmings: Body and Soul GETCHA NAILS DID Let's Go Sparkling Lissa's Nails Little Music Boxes Polish Mayhem I follow a ton of other great polish/nail design blogs too, go to the right of my page and you can find many many more. Are you ready for this week? I'm not T_T


  1. Ooh, nice! XD Same things has happened to me. I used to have a couple of polishes but after finding Scrangie's blog, I have so many bottles that I've hid most of them from my boyfriend's watchful eyes...

  2. I have a bunch of nail polish but I hardly ever paint my nails, because I chip them in 5 minutes and then am too lazy to take that shit off till it's nearly all flaked off XD

    So I pretty much just live vicariously through those nail blogs LOL

  3. Great collection! What gorgeous colours. I've just started getting obsessed with polishes too :)

  4. I get on nail polish buying kicks, too, still working through a major haul from a month ago. I rarely paint my nails because of my job.
    The book you're reading is a good one, I like Bugliosi's no bullshit style, wish he was still in the prosecutor's office here instead of the clowns we're stuck with. Once in awhile one of the Manson clan is up for parole consideration then the story is printed all over again, sigh.

  5. Dang-o. It's so weird when all of a sudden you're like " this what I've been doing with my money?" lol

    I've never been into nail polishes much, just because I hate the look of chipped nail polish, but when I was in school my collection grew so big so fast, haha. You should do swatches!! Especially of that pretty sparkly gold one (if you haven't already) :)

  6. Hehehe I'm trying to not look at nails myself at the moment or ill end up with japanese style decora tastic talons and be unable to do anything!

    Yey just somehow hit on your blog /follow :)

  7. Hey!
    I have something for you in my blog. Enjoy!

    Great collection! I have a weird thing with nail polishes. I like one color and then use the entire bottle up (then I get sick of that color) before I start to use another color so my collection doesn't really grow

  8. Your mom's nails look cute! I have still not got into nails. It always just comes off so easy...seems like a waste of time for me. Now, I love me some press on nails!!!! *lol* That's about it!

    I just gave you a blog award! Hope you like it!

  9. nice colors & amazing collection:)
