Polish Rack Update and Collection Organization!

In March, I posted a picture of my nail polish rack that my husband built. For more info on how to build your own, click here! I thought an update shot was needed since I've acquired a lot of polish in the past three months! My collection went from a modest 85 polishes, on the left, to a not-enough :) 171 polishes (including two that aren't pictured!), on the right. There are so many polishes on my rack now that I didn't even have a place to put my blog watermark! Geez! (Please don't steal my picture without giving me credit, hahaha!) 



The empty holes in the rack on the right are from polishes that are on the bottom shelf. That's where I put polish combination ideas I have for future manicures (and my mini bottles. How cute are they?!). Having said that, I wonder if anyone else is particular about the nail polish brands they use? I am crazy anal about the brands that I will allow into my collection. The bulk of my collection is Zoya (MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITE!!), OPI, and China Glaze. I have a few random polishes (Revlon, Layla, Ulta, Nubar, Essie, Julep) but it takes a pretty awesome polish for me to stray from my main three loves. Plus, I don't want to get into any super expensive brands because then I'll never eat again because my money will all go toward nail polish, hahaha! 

Having such a large (small in comparison to other bloggers!) collection makes traveling with it a difficult task! I think I'd need an entire suitcase to properly pack it all up and take it along! I recently saw another blogger who organized her collection using plastic salon nails. AWESOME IDEA. Plus, I don't have to wait to use a new polish! I get to swatch them right away without taking off my current polish. Here are the plastic nails I bought. They come in packs of 100 with two long bolts and nuts. I write the polish brand and name on the stick as well. Here is my entire collection! Enjoy! :)
