More Nail Polish

My husband always says that, when he first met me, I was plain and didn't have a lot of stuff. He claimed I didn't wear makeup or nail polish, but I know that's a lie. The thing is I probably didn't do it often. He also claims that I wore only one pair of shoes (or that I only HAD one pair) and one purse, a black one. I won't get into my purse collection right now, but I can say, for the record, that I have a lot of nail polish.

I like nail color. I'm attracted to buying it as well. But as I have so many bottles, I need to catalog them so that I don't buy too many of the same style and color.

This is just something that I typed up after examining each bottle of polish closely. It took me in the neighborhood of an hour:

This is all of my polish, albeit with inconsistent parenthetical comments. I realized that I have many similar shades, and way more of certain colors than I do of others. Now when I buy polish, I will try to buy polish in colors and finishes that I don't already own.
