China Glaze Stash (1/4)

I was able to swatch my China Glaze stash on some color wheels.  Can I just say... swatching your stash kind of sucks!  I'm only about half way through my stash and don't want to do anymore.  But, I am pushing myself to get it done!  Due to wanting to be finished with them, a lot of my wheels are skittled because I didn't feel like the taking the extra time to sort them by color as well.  I have already come across a few that are pretty close and might be putting up on the sale.

Here is the first part of my China Glaze stash.  If you see any you want swatched on nails, please let me know.  Enjoy!


1. riveter rouge
2. light as air
3. jitterbug
4. recycle
5. hey doll
6. prize winning mare

7. ingrid
8. goin’ my way?
9. foxy
10. naughty and nice
11. zombie zest
12. sea spray

13. VIII
14. virtual violet
15. hologram
16. side-saddle
17. ??  9m18a  - This lost it's sticker and those were the only numbers on the bottom of the bottle.  It was from their 2010 spring collection I believe.  I think it is Something Sweet.  If anyone knows for sure, can you please let me know.  Thanks!
18. ick-a-bod-y

I'm Back!!! Storage post!

Hi Everyone!  I'm back with a storage post for you all.  Things are pretty much back to normal around here, so I am hopefully going to get into the swing of posting more regularly! :)

I always find it interesting to see other people's stash storage system, so I decided to share mine with you today.

Awhile back I saw a post somewhere (not sure if it was a blog or on MUA) that someone used Snapware's Snap 'N Stack cases for their storage.  I found some at Target and decided to give them a shot.  Well, they worked good enough that I now have 3 large ones and 2 small ones.

Here are the large ones that I store my polish in:

This was about $11 at Target.

As you can see each section holds a bunch of polish!  (Shown is my OPI stash with a little China Glaze overflow.)

I also have two smaller ones that have 3 sections for my utensils and nail art supplies, with the bottom having little dividers for 6 smaller compartments that are perfect for smaller items (cotton balls, etc).

These were around $8 at Target.

You can also find them on  Snapware.

How do you store your stash?
Thanks for reading!

Liebster Blog Award!

Okay, so this took me by complete surprise!  I was honestly shocked when I saw this.

The lovely Lily at Savvy Beauty nominated me for the Liebster Blog Award!
Thank you so much!  This truly means the world to me, especially since... well lets admit, this blog has been off to a pretty crappy start!  Mostly due to my timing of starting it, right at the peak of my wedding planning!  Oops!  Hopefully this will change soon.  Thank you all so much for reading and supporting this blog!

I am nominating:

Why, Hello there!

Hi Everyone!!!  I just wanted to pop in and let everyone know that I am alive and doing well!

Mr. M and I tied the knot this past Saturday and the day couldn't have been more perfect!  I still can't believe the day has already been here and gone and that we are now FINALLY married! :)  We took the past few days off from work and are returning tomorrow.  We have had a relaxing few days, with hiking Monday, shopping Tuesday, and simply relaxing today.  We will be taking an actual "honeymoon" this August.  Until then we are adjusting to married life and working on some house projects.

I wanted to let everyone know that I will be back later this week with the giveaway winner and hopefully some actual posts next week!

Hope everyone is doing well and staying cool in this heat!

Thanks for reading!
