My Collection!!

My Collection!!

Going through all my polish last night sure made me exhausted!! I think I was working on my blog and racks for about 4 hours. What a night!!

Please ignore the mess, and trust me, this room is far from done!! I need to repaint eventually! This is my yellow, black, & white room! I will take pictures again once things are more organized! I was tired and wanted to at least show you all what I've been so excited for!!

I've been collecting maybe a year and a half. It's amazing to me to think back to the very first polish - OPI Don't Know, Beets Me. I bought it when I got a pedicure. From there I went on to get a few more OPIs and it was downhill after that!! If there was polish at the bottom of that hill, let's just say I'd roll all the way down it just to see what color it was. ;-)

So last night, I started shaking bottles and tightening caps and got sick of that maybe halfway through the first rack!!! LOL So if some colors are separated, sorry! ;-) Anyway, I did try my best to color fade, but sometimes it didn't work perfectly. I like how they look though, but I will probably redo it a million times as I have this problem to keep buying more!

Mr. CC is the one that actually said I needed all racks, no helmers. I was surprised he'd want them all on the wall, but he said I should be able to see them all. I have to admit, he is right! I love it! And now I can easily grab whatever I'm in the mood for!! I did say 6 racks are my limit, after these are filled (which won't be too much longer I suppose), I plan to get a helmer.

Just some of the mess I made :-D

My amazing hubby working hard!!!

Mr. CC

Aren't they awesome - not even filled yet!

It is my art!!! I'm in love!


Going to fix the cord, but I had to show you how awesome it is!!


I love that vanity!  I have plans to refinish it very soon!

My amazing vanity seat!! I love it!

It got really late, so I am still wearing my Unicorn Pee!! Here is an older, favorite mani of mine!!

I hope you enjoyed a peek at my collection!! I am so glad you were excited to see it!!

Much Love,

*Edited to add*
I can tell I was tired last night - I didn't mention where these lovely racks were from!!!  I went to the Head 2 Toe Beauty store, just over an hour from my house.  They do have a whole online shop, so you can check that out - Here.  Their wall racks are Here.  I bought the 90ct ones!  Hope that helps ;-)

  14. I in addition to my guys ended up reading the excellent tips and hints from your site and all of the sudden developed a terrible suspicion I never expressed respect to you for those techniques. These young men ended up totally happy to study all of them and now have in actuality been using those things. We appreciate you indeed being quite thoughtful as well as for having certain ideal information millions of individuals are really needing to learn about. Our own honest apologies for not expressing gratitude to earlier.
