The New Maker + nail art

Virtual Violet Inspiration

My stash needed some TLC the other night so I rearranged & straightened until my heart was content. I decided while I had them down I might as well take pics.

First of all, this is where I keep them all. I have a spare bedroom that doesn't have a bed in it. I don't welcome guests, ok! ;) I have a bookcase and a desk in there, so it's my study/polish room. Before my love of polishing skyrocketed, I was into scrapbooking. My aunt was super sweet and gave me this organizer rack/shelf thing that you hang on the wall. It has little dividers for embellishments and rods to hang spools of ribbon from. Needless to say, I re-purposed it into a polish rack. I like to look at all of my pretties! So I removed one of the rods for ribbon and lined up all of my polishes. The very top & bottom rows still have some scrapbooking stuff, but I can see that having to change if I keep buying. :)

So that's mostly it other than topcoats & base coats. I have a few in a small box designated as freebies to any of my friends that come over. Just a few that I didn't like them, or I'd bought them for one other special one in a combo pack. What do you think? Is there anything in particular you'd like to see that I haven't done yet? Let me know! :)
