Organizing your nail polish!

30 Apr

I am a nail polish junkie.  In case you didn’t already know.

That said, I have a larger collection of nail polish than most nail salons…and am always looking for new ways to contain and organize my stash.  Nail polish racks can be expensive sometimes, so I’ve found a bunch of different inexpensive ways to store polish, whether you have a few bottles or a complete store full…

Hanging plastic organizers

Zoya Earth Day Polish Exchange 2013

19 Apr

Image

Right now (April 19-26), in honor of Earth Day, Zoya is helping you get rid of your old nail polish (that may not be 5free) and exchange it for Zoya’s vegan, greener alternative polish!  There are over 300 colors to choose from! All you have to do is visit Zoya.com and add what polishes you want (no less than 6, no more than 24…pixie dust collection excluded) to your cart, then use the promo code ZOYAEARTH2013 to receive 50% off! (the percentage covers the cost to dispose of the exchanged bottles.) They ship you the bottles, and then when you receive your order, you ship your unwanted polishes back to them! This is done using the honor system…so it’s up to you if you actually send bottles in…but it would be a nice thing to do in honor of Earth Day and as a Thanks to Zoya…plus it is pretty nice getting half off!  As a polish creator myself (LaLa Lacquers), I appreciate other companies like Zoya who also make a greener alternative for those who prefer it. (Soooo…use the code YAYEARTHDAY when you shop LaLaLacquers on Etsy.com and receive a dollar off a bottle of nail polish!)

Moon Mani

14 Apr

So I’ve noticed a nail trend that caught my eye and has spread pretty quickly: the moon mani.  It’s actually been around for a while but I think it’s making a comeback with a few new twists.  These are a couple that I thought were really cool:

I love the color blue, especially Tiffany’s signature color! I used ChinaGlaze Aquadelic and then for the bling ring finger I used Essie No Place Like Chrome with Hard Candy Celebrate Sequins on top! The ring finger is super holographic and adds a nice bit of sparkle to shake things up!
