Do you have more nail polishes than 20? It's quite likely if you're reading this post. You already know that keeping track of a sizable nail polish collection can sometimes be challenging. You can't seem to discover the color you want, or you've lost the way with the specific hues you own. Well, I recognize the sensation. If you follow me on Instagram or even Snapchat, you've probably seen my mission to organize my collection and stop this nail paint jumble.
A little experience goes a long way when refining your at-home manicure, and a collection of the best nail polish colors will help you achieve salon-quality results at home. Everybody has a go-to hue, a classic red, a brooding navy, or even a soft, dreamy pastel that keeps appearing on your feed.
The storage of the nail paint is under control, but my primary challenge is choosing the appropriate colors. I decided to swatch every item in my collection on nail tips because of this. Swatching all 2,000 nail paints at the office, where new manicure colors are delivered every week, quickly became a mission.
But it was worthwhile! There have been so many advantages that I'm baffled as to why I didn't do it sooner.
So, whether you have 20 or 200 polishes in your collection, here are ten excellent reasons you should sample them all right away:
1. Organization: Sort your nail polish samples by brand or color. Later, locating the appropriate color in your stockpile will be simple.
2. Quality Control & Cost Savings: As you compare the swatches, you'll observe how the quality of various brands varies. Some are more pigmented, some dry faster, and some are so awful you regret buying them (see #8 for this instance). Instead of wasting your money on some subpar polishes, you'll be able to pinpoint the band that performs the best and concentrates on it.
3. Easy Search: You'll have no trouble locating the color you need!
4. Untrieds Management: In theory, all untrieds are no longer untrieds after being swatched on nail tips. Moreover, as a result of... read the next one!
5. Colour Selection & Comparison: By having all of your polishes swatched on sticks, you may "test" different nail colors without actually painting your nails with them. By placing a nail stick over your natural nail, you can get a good idea of how this shade will look on you.
Having nail color swatches on hand makes it easier for clients to choose a color when working with a nail technician.
6. Nail Art Inspiration: When you have access to a few sticks, it makes it much simpler to create unique color combinations. You immediately notice what functions best! Additionally, you can explore new nail art methods and improve your line work by using nail tips.
7. Dupe Management: You'll soon recognize all dupes in your collection as well as the colors you have way too many of (in my case, blue and purple) and that you might want to hold off on purchasing for a time (yeah for money savings!).
8. Accounting: You'll be able to (finally) count them all. It's far simpler to count the colors in packs of 50 than it is to do so separately for each bottle of the nail tips I'm using.
9. Space Invaders Management: Get rid of duplicates as well as polishes that you haven't used or tested in the past two years and those of poor quality. You should make room/save it for something more exciting because space is limited.
10. Therapy: Nail painting on swatches is just as calming and fulfilling as painting on real nails. Additionally, you'll feel instantaneously better, more organized, and more responsible once you have your entire collection swatched and under control. Someone once said, "First you gain control of your nail polish collection, then control of your life," but that person might have just been me.
Now it's your turn!
