Hello loves! This is a quite different blog post from all the others. Today I will show you my nail polish collection and the devices I use to share my content with you. Note: I am not doing this because I want to brag in any way - that would be ridiculous. Why would anybody be envious just because of the nail polishes I own? There are way more important things in life! Plus, I think I'm not a nail polish addict or anything. My stash is not that big, especially not in comparison to most of the other passionate nail art ladies out there!
But first of all, I shortly want to tell you which equipment I rely on. On the photo below you can see the camera I use: It's a Canon PowerShot A2000 IS. It wasn't too expensive and it's quite a few years old already, but for me it's still doing a great job!
The photo on top of this post shows my computer and my phone. I got the Macbook Pro Retina, which does a brilliant job editing my pictures (with iPhoto and PhotoScape X) and putting together new blog posts, and obviously I have to use my Samsung Ativ S smartphone to share my nail art on Instagram, as well. So that's that. But now to the nail polishes. I store all of them, along with my make-up, in a Helmer (from Ikea). Each drawer contains one of these plastic dividers.
As you can see below, I organize the bottles by color. Because I don't go for certain brands and it's much easier for me to find the perfect shade when I'm in need for a certain color for my nail art. I will name the brand of each nail polish in the picture; if you want to know the full name of a color then go ahead and ask me.
