Sorting through my nail polishes was one of the tasks I missed when I did my huge house purge in the summer, each time I went to paint my nails I continued to bypass all of the colours I was no longer interested in.
I finally decided to have a good declutter of my nail box and get rid of anything that I hadn’t used or had no intentions to use.
All of my nail paraphernalia is stored in this Beautify Case it’s not bursting with polishes but it’s certainly become a tight squeeze to get them all in, in an orderly fashion.
As you can see I’d made use of each little section, fitting them in like tetris pieces
Rather than keep colours together I had grouped my polishes together by brand. This was my downfall when buying specific colours as I never knew which colours I had multiples of, even I didn’t need 3 identical lilacs.
The bottom was sectioned off into OPI which had it’s own little bag to keep them all together and then all of the remaining polishes were crammed into the left over space. SOMETHING HAD TO CHANGE!
After grouping them off into colours, the process of elimination began.
In total I managed to get rid of 30 bottles.
A large chunk of these were donated to my friends and family…
…and the remaining bottles had to be discarded either for being too old, close to empty or far to goopy.
I thought having less polishes in my nail kit would limit my choice, but now I can go in and pick a polish that I know I will actually want to wear rather than wading through colours I pass up time after time. As well as the obvious benefits of more space the box is now half the weight so far easier to carry around.
