#51: Organizing Nail Polish Pt. 2

Finally got the rest of the drawers sorted out last night and took pictures this morning, so here's part 2!

The third drawer is the drug store nail polish.  The majority of it is Wet n' Wild, a brand which I really do love when it comes to nail polish. I always keep an eye out for new collections (I'm really hoping that we have something interesting from Fantasy Makers this year). Wet n' Wild Black Creme is my go-to black and I'm really sad that they no longer do Rock Solid LE collections.  My Maybellines, Sally Hansen, L'oreal, Milani, and Borghese.

#51: Organizing Nail Polish Pt. 1

I used to be really bad at biting my nails growing up. Towards the end of high school, I started painting my nails on a regular basis to stop biting, which worked beautiful. I did end becoming a bit o a fanatic about nail polish though and currently have a sizable collection (I haven't counted, but I'm sure I have over 200 bottles).  For a while, I used various containers to hold my collection until I could get a Helmer from IKEA.

My nails haven't been in great shape due to work, and for a couple of months, my nails were left naked. I finally got back into painting my nails last month (thank god for quick dry top coat) and my nails have been recovering. My room once again has random bottles all over place, so I decided to re-organize my stash while tidying up.

I prefer to organize by brand. It maybe easier to go by color (you would have all the shades there to help you choose between instead of going back and forth between draws), but I think it looks neater/cleaner by brand.

The first three drawers I'm showing have stayed the same. The other three are being rearranged to be/look less chaotic.

Glossybox: July 2012

Sorry that there wasn't a review of the June box - pictures didn't turn out and then I kind of forgot about it, plus I'm sure there are beauty blogger who are better at presenting these sort of things. A quick overall impression: last month's box was okay.  I quite liked the mascara (Showoff), haven't gotten around to using the hair treatment or body cream yet, and one of the products (the shaving gel) has a hole in the packaging and got the product everywhere. However, after I sent a e-mail to Glossybox about, I got another sample of it. So, thumbs up in customer service; I got a reply about 3 days after I sent them the e-mail, and actual sample arrived towards the end of the month (not fast, but I'm sure they're busy with other customers and getting the next month's box ready).

So, July.  Another month with the focus on summer.  I'm really looking forward to the fall/winter boxes, as the cooler months (especially the holidays) are my favorite.

In Review: July

Been very lazy about blogging.  Not sure why.  Got pictures for July's Glossybox already taken, so that post will be up soon. Most likely won't do a June review unless anyone wants one.  Haven't been doing much, mostly because I just want to travel (even if it's just a weekend trip) and I can't really afford it and can't get the time away. I'm so looking forward to my week-long vacation in September.
