My Nail Polish Collection

Today I thought I'd post a few photos of my nail polish collection, so this will be a bit of a photo spammy post. Amazingly before Christmas I only had half the amount I have now, but my Dad gave me money for Christmas and I spent it all on nail polish, he thought I was mad, but it's one of the best presents I've ever had, and I had so much fun hunting on ebay for polishes I wanted. My amazing boyfriend also treated me to a few really special polishes, he got me my first O.P.I (Rainbow Connection) and my first Nfu-Oh (#39) I love them both so much and they will always have a special place in my heart.

I kinda split my collection into Revlon, Sally Hansen, Rimmel and odds and sods, so I'll show you my collection like that.

Here are all my Revlons, would you believe that before June last year I only had two Revlons, now I'm obsessed with them and want to try to hunt all the old ones down. I'm also one of the few people that love the bottle shape, I really hope they don't ever change it.

Old Style Revlons including Chromes and Zings

Newer Revlons including Scented, Matt and a few Fizz's
I got into Sally Hansens because I found a few old Chrome polishes at my local market stall and it started from there, I'd love to have all the chromes and I've really fallen for the HD collection after seeing them on blogs, I've got most of them now, but I think I'll have to save up my penny's to get Opulent Cloud.

Sally Hansen's including Prisms, Chromes and HD's
Next up is my Rimmels. Two of these are the oldest polishes I own (namely Zeitgeist and Mania), I got them back in the late 90's when I first started wearing nail polish, I'm so glad that when I stopped painting my nails I didn't throw them out, maybe I knew that one day I'd be painting my nails again because of those polishes. :-)

On to The odds and sods, some of these are some of my most treasured, there's all sorts of brands from Gosh to L'Oreal to Nails Inc, if I like the look of something and it's cheap I'll get it, I'm open to trying all different brands and I can't resist something if it looks old!

Nails Inc, Gosh, Accessorize, Old Topshop, 2True, Stargazer, George, Boots No7 & La Femme
L'Oreal, Maybelline,Urban Decay, Hard Candy & Ciate
Barry M, BYS, Bourjois, Barbara Daly, Missgiven, NYC, Blue Cross & Technic
Spectacular, Gallery Colours, OPI, Nfu Oh, Me Me Me, Collection 2000, etc....

I've now got over 250 nail polishes, which I can't believe, once you start collection they soon build up. If you're a polish addict how many do you have, and do you have a favorite?

Cheerio for now.



  1. Your collection IS AWESOME. I would love to see those old Topshop polishes closer!!

  2. You saying my collection is awesome, is awesome, having a collection as amazing as yours is what I'm aiming for. :-)
