My dear followers- I have not forsaken you. The no-buy has been partially successful. I made one buy in the last month out of necessitiy…well ok mostly envy. Wallgeens has the Disney Villains collection by ELF for a short time. I got to see & swatch a few of them at my friend Lara’s a few weeks ago. There in that very collection was my perfect nude polish. I had to have it! So I tracked down a store thst was carrying it and laid my money down. Whew…
The no-buy had been broken, but for a 12 polish collection that only cost $10. A deal!
Plus when my homegirl Cheryl’s birthday party came up unexpectedly that friday I had some extras that I could give to her!
I wll post swatches of this fantastic collection assp.
But now for my nsils au naturale…
They are stained from blue & green polish but are gowing nicely. Tonight I gave my cuticles some much needed attention with a Blue Cross treatment. For those who don’t know, Blue Cross is a thin lotion-y type product that you put on & rinse off after a few minutes. It softens cuticles & removes dead skin. It also works miracles on rough feet & elbows. You can get a bottle at Sally ‘s for $4 snd it will last for months.
My name is Amy, and I’m a polishoholic. Today I added item muber 230 to my inventory. That’s including adhesive type stuff like Minx and glitter nail dress. Holy shit. That surprises even me.
Saturday was the last day of the Walgreen’s 2/$3 Sinful Colors sale. And thoigh I had declared a no buy, I broke down and grabbed two from SC Leather Collection.
Strapped is a dark teal with a matte finish.
Leather Loose is a brown with copper glitter and
matte finish. It definitely takes two thickish coats to get the true color for this one. But its worth the dry time!
The way I’ve found to be the best for me is an app on my phone called Inventory. Its a free app from Google play that you also download a barcode scanner with. In the app you can scan in the barcode from your bottle of polish and it will search for info. Most of the time it will load name, brand, manufacturer and a pic. Not always, sometimes you have to enter info manually. But there are plenty of spaces to make notes on color & finish, and add your own pics.
I also use swatch wheels from Sallys Beauty Supply. I have filled a bunch of them, and my collection has grown. I think I may need to reorganize and redo them.
Let me know how you keep your collection organized! Here is a link to the inventory app. If you try it share your thoughts!

I love sinful colors. I love when they’re on sale! Walgreens has them on sale right now 2 for $3…WOOHOO! I found a couple yesterday that I didn’t have yet 🙂
Beau Brique, a brick red orange cream.
Soul Mate, a muted mauve cream.
I know most nail bloggers are over Chanel Peridot, with it’s many dupes and almost-but-not-quite-dupes. But as green is my signature color, lol, I have been on the hunt. Until yesterday, when upon walking into a Sally’s Beauty Supply I don’t normally frequent, there it was a bottle of China Glaze Rare and Radiant! My most lusted after lemming, other than Peridot itself. I snagged the bottle and another package of swatch wheels and ran before temptation reared its ugly head again.
I am serious about a no-buy until our finances get sorted…ugh, I digress. In inventory-ing my collection I have over 200 nail products, buuuutttt… I will probably get a couple more sinful colors at Walgreen’s before their 2/$3 sale is over at the end of August.
Note: not R&R on my thumb in pic ;p
