All right, here’s the stash that started it all. If it wasn’t for my growing nail polish collection, I would have never tracked any of my makeup in a spreadsheet. And out of everything I hoard, I would say that buying nail polish is the most compulsive for me. They’re just so much fun! No guilt. No commitment. And nail polishes don’t go “bad” per se – they can ALL be revived with thinner even if they thicken over time. The oldest polishes in my collection are from the 90’s! I’ve done a lot of purging over the years of duplicate shades or formulas that I don’t care for. My current collection stands at 498 but if I count all of the ones I’ve given away (yes I track those too so I don’t repurchase by accident), the number would be closer to 570.
