Things I can't be without, Nail Edition
Some of the beauty bloggers from The Beauty Blog Coalition and Beauty Blogazons came together to write about some of the beauty products we can't be without.
I am a bit of a hoarder by nature, so it wasn't a surprise to take a quick look around my desk and see some things that I have definitely collected - and buy multiples of when I find them. This picture doesn't even do my collection justice. I just picked a few of each - and only nail stuff for this post. There are lots of makeup things I hoard, too.
Do you think they have an AA-type thing for this addiction?
Because of my love of nail art and stamping, I collect black and white polishes and my fave stamping gold polish. I am always trying to see what polishes work best for nail art. When I find polish on sale, I'll often snap up a few bottles of these!
I never knew anything about balms and oils before getting into nail art. Now, I can't get enough. I even make my own oil blend that sits on my desk, too. There's some kind of oil or balm where I sit to watch TV, my bedside, my purse, and even in the bathrooms!
I love the ELF concealer brush for cleanup, and have 3 or 4 on my desk in various states of use, and plenty of new ones waiting in the wings. I have tried other brushes, and I just keep coming back to this one! I buy them on sale when I can, but at $1 or less, I'll buy a bunch at a time. I tell myself that I'll give them to nail friends, but I'm really hard-pressed to part with them!
I also hoard acetone, and make my own DIY blend with glycerine and a bit of water and fragrance oil. I have heard of the horrors of running out of remover, and having to *gasp* not remove a mani because of it. Horrors!*shudder*
What beauty product do you stock up on? What product gives you the jibblies to think of running out of it?
