I recently decluttered my nail polish racks, and I thought it would be fun to show you my collection and all of my favorite nail colors!

I paint my nails usually once or twice a week, and my nails are pretty much always polished- so, you know, I need options!  While decluttering, I did try to get rid of colors that were similar, but it was definitely hard to part with some!  You’ll notice I have a lot of “bubblegum pinks”, as that is my favorite color to wear.  I will mark my all time favorites with asterisks.  Enjoy! 


I have all of my colors organized on these two acrylic racks that are situated side by side on one of the walls in my closet.  I have had these for about four years now, and I’m very pleased with them.  They each hold about 30-40 nail polishes, depending on the size of your bottles.

Let’s start off with the top 2 rows.  These are all of my Essie polishes.  Not my favorite formula, but they always come out with the best colors.
