Over time I’ve hoarded quite a lot of nail products. Therefore I’ve had to be quite clever about how I store them.
I like to keep them out of light, as I worry that will make them tacky and unusable over time. This case from Soap and Glory is the ideal storage. I got this from their 2016 Christmas bundle gift set.
Inside it is sectioned off by two containers. One is a Barry M makeup bag that I got from Clothes Show 2016 and the other is an old Look Fantastic box. As you can probably tell, I’m a bit of an up-cycler when it comes to storage! I find this is a great way to separate the varnishes from my tools.
In the tools bag, I’ve got everything I need from files, to art pens and toe separators (which I never seem to need but still have). These are my favourite nail tools –
- Models Own Buffer – the perfect quick nail rejuvenation tool. Not too harsh and does the job
- Barry M Quick Dry Top Coat – works as well as high end alternatives and dries even quicker
- Avon Liquid Freeze – great for in between coats to dry them quickly
- Nurture Oil – almond oil which helps keep my nails healthy and moisture
I’m not going to go through all of my collection, but I’d like to do a special shout out to my favourite formula . Kat Von D vs Formula X. These are in Bauhau5 and Homegirl.
Please let me know if you’d like a post on some of the varnishes or types (e.g. glitters, neutrals).
How do you store your nail collection and what’s your favourite formula?
