My Collection

People sometimes say to me "You must have so much nail polish!".  I always insist, of course, that I don't.  to be fair, it all used to fit in a shoe box.  It doesn't any more, but it's still far less than a lot of people's (I don't yet have a room devoted to nail polish, although I am working on my boyfriend...).

So anyway, I thought it'd be a good idea to photograph my collection so people could see what I have.  And because I was bored.  So here you go - all polish names are from left to right.

 These poor things weren't loved enough to be given names or even numbers.

 And lastly, here are a few frankens.


  1. Look at all those Barry M polishes! Gorgeous. I currently have a drawer under the bed devoted to nail polish. I am hoping in our new house I can upgrade that to a "nail polish corner" in the bedroom.

    1. Yeah I didn't quite realise how many Barry M's I had until I was lining them up to photograph them. That explains why I struggle to find new colours!

  2. Looks like you have a nice stash! I don't own a single Barry M polish... I'm not sure they are sold where I live (Canada). Nice Frankens!

    1. As far as I'm aware they're only available in the UK (I could be totally wrong). They are great for the money like, as you can see by the quantity I've purchased. I ordered another 5 the other day as well...oops.
