Manicure of the Moment and Where I am Stashing My Stash, Right Now

Hello gentle readers. How's your Friday? Mine is nice and warm. It is 80 degrees, right now. A little warm for this time of year, here. But not unwelcome.

Since it is so lovely I decided to do my nails in China Glaze Strawberry Fields. A pretty, bright pink creme filled with gold glass fleck shimmer. So pretty. The formula is a little thick but not goopy. It is a bit streaky on the first coat, then evens out and is lovely and opaque with the second. Dry time is quick with this polish. I topped this manicure with Seche Vite.

Do you own this polish? What do you think of it?

My polish is currently residing in four round hatboxes that I have stacked up n the corner in my bedroom. The boxes aren't all full, but they are all at least half full, but one, which is about 1/4 full. I am astonished at how fast my little collection is growing. This time last year, my entire polish collection fit on my little carousel. Now, that is where my minis live.

Bottom box, tried polishes. Nearly full. Next box up, untried, nearly full. Next up, tried glitters, about 1/4 full, top box, all blue polishes, half or a bit more full. On top is my mani basket holding small remover and acetone bottles, files, buffers, clean up brush, patching materials, base and topcoats and so forth. I need a better solution for storage. The boxes are nice but they are a pain in the bootay to get in to when I am in search of what polish I want to wear, that day.

I swatched and photographed my newest franken, today. I am trying to come up with a name for it. A few ideas are floating around. Once I settle on a name and am happy with the photos, I will post them.

Okay, I need to run along, now. I am headed out to the lake in a little bit for my walk. Have a lovely evening, everyone. Thank you so much for popping in and may your polish never bubble.

  1. Hat boxes! I wouldn't have ever thought of that. And I love Strawberry Fields - definitely one of my faves.

  2. What a neat idea :) I still have only about 10 polishes to my name so a box isn't really needed. I can't wait to need a box! haha

  3. I don't own that polish and I'm not really a pink lover either (at least when it's about polish) but this one's so pretty... I think I need to have this one anyway.

I love to know what you're thinking. I dig honest discourse and lively discussion, even a good debate. I do not dig spam, hate speech or personal attacks either against myself or my gentle readers. Comments are moderated before they post to maintain a harmonious community.
