For those who don't already have this, I REALLY recommend buying swatching sticks (I got mine from E-bay, 50 for $2.50, I had to buy 3) or even making your own like Very Emily did. I tried this first but I like the little metal rod you can keep them in.
They're great to see how the polish looks like on the nail, to compare dupes, not to mention, if really helps when you're trying to decide which colours work together. Plus it's a nice and nifty way to keep track of all your polishes. Yes, it does take a while to swatch all of them. I went through a few Community Seasons while I was doing mine, waiting for them to dry and then writing the brand and name with a projector pen. So worth it in the end though!!
The camera didn't manage to capture the colours 100% correct, but you can get a glimpse of the range between them, so I figured it worked pretty well this way too. Alright, let's take a look, shall we??
Whites: Clearly not my strongest colour base, but then again, how many whites does one need?
Pinks: Fun fact? I don't even really like pink all that much...Clearly my subconscious does.
Reds: My notion of red is clearly a strong, dark kind of red, like blood.
Oranges: Again, I'm surprised at how many of this shade I actually own. It's orange after all.
Yellows: Half of these are actually gold, but I really love yellow.
Greens: Ahhh, my favourite colour!! Surprisingly don't own more. I guess green is hard to wear.
Turquoise: Not that many because these are mostly in between green and blue to me...
Blues: Apparently I like blue. Then again, it's such a flexible colour so I'm not surprised.
Purples: Now here's the surprise, purple wins eh? Did not see that coming. I guess like blue there are a lot of shades to it and it's a more classical colour to wear.
Glitters Part 1: It goes from Fairy Dust to Fuzzy Fantasies...
Glitter Part 2: From fine and not so dense glitters...
Glitters Part 3: To the really thick ones that can be used by themselves.
Textured: There's Pixie Dust and Liquid Sand, I'm in love with these ones. Need to add more!!
Specials: Finally, there's 2 magnetic ones, crackle, changes colours in the heat and glow in the dark, these are my "special" ones that give nail arts a unique look.
And finally, here they all are together. 125 polish colours. I'm quite proud of my little collection and love just staring at the colours! It really does make life more practical, plus it's great when people ask to look at my collection and I just present them this, hehe.
