one day, i hope to have enough space to display all my nail varnishes for the world to see. at the moment however, i keep them all tucked away in this little box. great to lug them around quickly, but a nightmare in terms of finding the colour i want- i almost feel like i'm playing a bizarre version of this game.
i wrote the idea for this diy down in one of my little notebooks ages ago, and found it again the other day when i was packing. there are so many ways that you could do this that would look a lot neater than how i've done it, but i was just going with what i had to hand. it's mega easy, and shouldn't take too long depending on how many nail varnishes you own.
so first, you need some sort of stickers- ideally i think circular ones would look best, but i had bog standard rectangular labels.
i put a dollop of each nail varnish onto the labels, small enough to fit on the lids of each bottle.
then, it's just a matter of waiting for them to dry, cutting them all out (think how much quicker this would be if i'd had little round stickers!) and sticking them to their matching bottles.
and there you have it. it may seem like a slightly pointless diy, but for me it's one of those "why didn't i do this sooner?!" type tips.
i love being able to actually see the colours i have, and this way i think i'll stop reaching for the same ones and actually use all of my 40 odd (!) nail varnishes.
