My Nails inspired by Miss Jen Fabulous (Youtube)
I started out with about 5/6 nail polishes because I have an awful habit of losing things and those were the colours I actually used and hadn't lost. My boyfriend ordered me some nail stripers, dotting tools and glitter from amazon as a kind of 'yay you are out of hospital now, cheer up present (hospital was that bad!) and off I went trying to create some nail designs. I then decided that I needed more actual nail polishes to be base colours so I started to purchase some more, and some more and some more so now, 9 weeks later, I have at least 50 nail polishes, lots of glitter, nail stripers and stamps with the collection growing every week. I've created a monster!!
|Some of My Collection, forgive the shoddy pic they are in a drawer.|
You might think 'well that's not an awful lot, especially for a beauty blogger', but remember within the space of about 8 weeks my collection multiplied x10 then there are the removers, nail treatments, top coats, base coats etc, It's taking over my house! I had to move a chest of drawers from the spare room into my room just to house my nail and makeup collection (now that is another story).
Not only has the damn stuff taken over my house, it has started to occupy a large space in my brain. It started out with occupying my time painting my nails daily and watching nail art tutorials on YouTube and went on to thinking about nail art designs and colours I would buy when I should be asleep, now I am basing a whole outfit for a wedding around a colour of Nail Varnish I have! Oh and I'm still not very good at actual Nail Art but at least I can colour within the lines now!
Is this normal? I don't think it is. It's just as well that I never claimed, nor wanted to be normal so I love it really!!
Are Any of you the same? Nail polish junkies, beauty junkies? Has it taken over your home/brain/life?
