I own 95 nail polishes. Is that crazy/stupid/not enough? :)

I love these 4 mini pastel shades from Primark - £2!

My Barry M collection - 24 polishes @ £3 each (roughly) = £72 :(

Absolutely love these polishes though - I'll never stop buying them!

 LOVE the different colours of H&M polishes - very unusual colours, very wearable though.

I much prefer their new bottles too - with the wider lids. 

For £3 each these are a bargain too :)

My collection - I store them in an IKEA clear plastic box at the moment - but Im considering putting them more on display - maybe along the picture rail up the stairs :)

My little bag of accessories too - consists of:
Body shop Satsuma lotion - I LOVE THIS!! its so creamy and yummy smelling. Perfect for little manicures :)
MAC nail files, Nails Inc file and buffer, Cuticle Sticks, Nail Polish Remover, Clippers, Metal file which I use for cleaning under the nails, Nail brush, Nail Glue, Cotton Pads :)

Whats your collection like and how do you store then??

Tattoo Tuesday 05/03/13

This weeks Tattoo Tuesday will share the 'Swallow'.

I love this tattoo - and after googling it - I now know the several meanings for having it:

1 - One swallow was tattooed on a sailor who sailed 5,000 nautical miles. Two swallows meant 10,000 miles travelled. 

2 - Swallow with dagger in heart - Friend lost at sea.

3 - Bird on Hand or Neck - Jailbird.

4 - A sailor gets a set of swallows on his chest, The story goes if he or she drowns, the swallows come down and lift his soul to the heavens. 

I imagine these girls below dont have it for any of the above reasons - I think perhaps they just like the designs same as me :)

Do you like these?? Would the meanings put you off having one?
