My nail polish stash :)

One of the requests in my giveaway form is to post about my nail polish stash :). I've been on a no buy since the beginning of this year (and it's working! I haven't bought any polishes even though I've been tempted on several occasions :P) so I thought now would be a good time to share my stash.

I keep my polishes in a clear rectangle container which I can shove under my bed and out of the way :P. Currently it holds about 125 bottles of polish; my untrieds are stored in another smaller container next to my bookshelf. All photos are taken indoors under natural light. They are most certainly not all colour accurate - some polishes came out fine in the photos and others were just...woah o__o. So please don't use these as references :).

My Ulta3 polishes. They are by far the cheapest polish brand I've come across in Australia, hence why I have so many of them haha.
stash - ulta3

Sportsgirl nail polish.
stash - sportsgirl

Savvy by DB and Eclipse nail polish. Eclipse is a Korean nail polish brand found in Morning Glory. Ooh, their shops now also stock Tony Moly! I've definitely had to force myself away from the nail polish section since the colours aren't terribly unique. But they're still really pretty!
stash - eclipse & savvy

Other Australian brand polishes -Chi Chi, TBN, Jay Jays, BYS :).
stash - random aussie polishes

And now my China Glaze collection :). The polishes are definitely not colour accurate here, especially the second and third ones from the left on the bottom row.

And other miscellaneous U.S polish brands - Orly, Misa, Nubar, Claires, Essie.

Sinful Colors. Arezia, Alessandro and the Golden Rose were purchased in Hong Kong.

And finally, my untrieds box and where I keep some of my nail art supplies.

  8. Hi there just found your posting on polishes when i googled 'korean nail polish austalia'. We stock a huge range of Eclipse polishes (using the American raw materials making it a better quality) in our Web Store on We also have lots of other cool products like great stickers, pens, stones, foil kit etc. Feel free to contact me on Thanks - Annika

  9. I like your big box idea with the separators to store your nail polishes.
    makes me want to go out and get one now!
