Fantabulous Giveaway!!

I could not think of a better fake adjective to describe how giddy this giveaway makes me!!

OMG!!  All of the OMGs!!!

I almost literally stumbled on 2 from the Kaleidoscope collection, but must have been in a coma when the OMG collection was out....but, it's not too late!!  Carina at Gilded Nails has 1500 followers (WOOT!).  To celebrate and humble us with her generosity, check out this doozy...

I'll be dreaming in prismatic rainbows until this one is over *swoon*

Brand Spotlight - Preview

As I mentioned in my last post, I've been in a bit of a funk in regards to blogging....part of my problem at this point is not knowing where to start. 

Awhile back I sat down and attempted to organize my nail polish collection.  About 4 hours later, I had come up with a nice little Excel spreadsheet.  I like Excel as it enables me to search and sort by any number of things; including, Brand, Collection, Color, Mfr #, and Type (this one wasn't as easy to research and plug in what I found, so I am still developing this column --  what kind of categories do you divide your polishes into (i.e glitter, creme, scented, shimmer, neon, etc.)? 

I've always felt more comfortable when things are in some kind of an we'll start with "A" on the brand column and go down the alphabet.

(Whew!  I feel pumped just getting all those down...I am excited!!)

On a side note...I definitely need more racks!! 

Right now I have 3 of the above pictured racks on the wall of my bathroom...I think I need 1 or 2 more at this point.  I am seriously contemplating getting at least one of this kind...

I have to go back and doublecheck, but I believe Fingerpaints have slightly taller bottles, which would be great!!  The only complaint I have about the "Polish Centers" I have is that not all the racks are of equal height and sometimes the row height messes up the continuity of my polish order.

My apologies

Sorry guys....I have been in a little bit of a funk lately.  First, I was really busy getting ready to go on my "honeymoon" then when we got back, I was having serious Disneyland withdrawals on top of nasty allergy/sinus issues that have been hanging around since we got to Anaheim. 

I have had a lot of fun, watched some great movies, checked out some cool books, and picked up some sweet polish and just haven't shared....and that's not nice!!  ;)

I am trying to get on top of it friends, please hang in there.
