My Current Project - Nail Wheels

Hey everyone.

I just thought that today I would do a quick post to fill you all in on something that I'm currently working on - nail wheels of my entire collection. It's a pretty overwhelming task but I think that in the end it's definitely going to be worth it.

The method: I'm creating my wheels first by brand and then by colour. In other words, I might end up having 4 wheels of purple but all will be by a different brand. The reason I'm doing it this way is because that's currently how I have my nail polish organized and I didn't want to stray from that.

Also, I hope to find a neat and professional looking way to label the wheels but I haven't come up with anything yet. As of right now I simply have all of the colour names written down in a notebook.

I got my nail wheels from eBay for next to nothing and at first I only bought 6 (each wheel has 20 nails on it) but after actually starting this project and realizing just how many nail polishes I own, I realized I would need a lot more so I immediately placed an order for 10 more. For 10 nail wheels, it cost me $4.97 CND including shipping which is quite a steal. However, some of you may be able to find nail wheels locally so they may even be cheaper than that.

The seller I got these from seems to have a good few available so if you're interested, here's their eBay seller id: born_pretty

I have already used up my first 6 nail wheels and I haven't even finished going through my China Glaze polishes yet! Mind you, not all of the wheels are full but I'm happy to leave some space on the wheels since I know my collection will only continue to grow.

Here's a picture of one of the wheels I have done so far - my China Glaze Purple Nail Wheel:

If anyone has any questions about any of the above colours just let me know.
Anyway, that's it for now. Hope you all have wonderful day. :)
