So there you have it, my entire nail stash!
How did I swatch my colors? I dipped the end of a nail art brush into the polish and dabbed it on the top of each lid then wiped off the end of the brush . This has made it so much easier to see what colors I have as soon as I open a drawer. My previous method was to swatch on nail wheels but since there wasn’t space to write on them, they went unlabeled (yea very bad system lol).
This looks like HEAVEN. And your swatching system is so clever, I will definitely be stealing that idea! 🙂
