Current Nail Polish Collection

It's been 10 days since I last blogged but it's seriously felt like 6 months. With the completion of my last university exam EVER comes the celebratory events - hence the absence of blogging. However, it's back to my regular blogging schedule (if not more as I have a tonne of products I want to review along with a haul!) and I promise I won't ever leave again (hopefully).

Anyways, today I will be sharing with you my current nail polish collection. I say current because since taking the following photos, I have actually bought a few more (I know, I'm crazy) and although I know I have much more than a normal person should have this probably won't stop me from buying more in the future. Ahh the perks of being a girl. 

The following polishes I will be showing are actually the ones I decided to keep as I did throw out quite a few bottles. I do want to add in here that I don't want this post to come across as a 'bragging' post - I just wanted to share my love of nail polishes with you guys and hopefully you will find this post interesting! I also want to quickly add that I'm colour blind (as you will see in the following photos) as I have grouped a few polishes into the wrong colour category. Obviously I need to brush up my skills and study a colour chart! So without further ado let's get on with the polishes.

After swatching all these polishes I cannot believe how many nail polishes I have accumulated! My mind was seriously blown when I took them all out and actually put them (badly) into each colour category. How can someone possibly own 14 bright/vibrant/hot pink polishes and yet only have 2 reds?! Also, why don't I have a yellow nail polish or more wine/berry shades?

Anyways I digress - I hope you enjoyed this post. Let me know if you have a nail polish addiction like I do and how many you currently own!


  1. OH GOSH SO MANY LOVELY COLOURS! My absolute favourite row was the baby pinks because those are my favourite but I also liked the purple MaxFactor one :) x

  2. WHOA! What an extensive yet lovely collection! I don't own many nail polishes myself since I'm always lazy to paint them :P
    But, the number of NOTD posts going around is getting me hooked!
