Just Another Polish Problem

image

So I’m bored this afternoon and decided to gather all my untrieds, to swatch, and re-swatch polishes.

I’m on a serious “no buy” since March 1 up to now (not only coz I’m trying to control myself, but also I hate spending more than what I really have. I’m a bum, so yeah, very limited resources.) so I have no idea how I ended up with all these. O_o I mean I know I’m adding bottle after bottle of polish in my stash, but I haven’t thought it would be this many.

Some were bought for me by a friend, some I bought just before March, some were bought by mom’s assistant and some I picked up when we went grocery shopping (Mom pays for them, so that’s still a “no buy” for me. Lol) and some were given to me coz she can’t bring all her polishes to her new home (Yes I accept relief polishes! Lol So if you ever wanna give out some polishes, put me on top of your lists please? Haha)

So now, my question is… How can I swatch all these without drying out my hands from too much polish remover?

I’m thinking of using glue as base coat so I could just peel them off, but that would take forever to dry.

Hmm, suggestions from anyone?

Well, anyway, here’s my rainbow marble mani. 🙂

How To – Water Marble Decal

Have you ever tried to do water marble mani? Aren’t they gorgeous! But it does make a mess, right? And not to mention, you’ll need a hell of a lot of tape. Have you ever wondered if there’s an easier (and cleaner) way to marble your nails?

Well, actually I think there is… I found a way to make it easier for me. I made the marbled design to sort of a decal thing, and thought I’d share how. 🙂
