Search Features on Vampy Varnish

It has come to my attention from a few comments on my poll about site design that maybe some of you didn’t know you could search on my site. So I figured I would show you some screen shots of different ways to find information you may be looking for.

There is a search area in the upper right-hand side of the site. You can also search by my Categories section, but more on that later.

My Nail Polish Collection as of November 2011


It’s been awhile since I did a comprehensive post showing my nail polish storage and collection so I thought it was about time.

I apologize in advance of the crappy pictures. It’s getting too hard to pull all the drawers out to take great, even shots, so this is a bit haphazard. But you will get the idea.

I am estimating my collection to be somewhere around 2,500-3,000 now and it grows nearly every single day!

Most of my containers were bought at either Target or Walmart and most of them have now been discontinued (boooo). The ones I most recently purchased at Target are the ones on top with the holes in the fronts. They seem to work as well as my older ones.

All of my nail polish is kept in the closet of my office now.

Nail Polish Collection Nov 2011

This is one side of the office closet which holds about 60% of my collection. Most of these drawers are stack-able, but some are different models so they don’t fit as easily. I put a layer of sticky drawer liner in-between them to help keep them in place (in earthquake country).

a-england The Mythicals Featuring Galahad, Holy Grail & King Arthur Swatches & Review

a-england carries some really amazing and unique colors in The Mythicals collection and I’ve got three more for you today!

I love pretty much everything about this brand. The names, the ideas behind the colors, the bottle shapes, the logo, the fact that they’re from England, the formula… I think you get the point.

The only thing I would change is we need MORE of them! Hint, hint.
