I made a wooden polish rack! Also Happy Valentine's Day!

Hey everyone!!! I'm finally getting beck to you with day 21 of this challenge. Yeah, I'm not on top of it. But oh well! This day is Inspired by a Color! I just got my Julep Cupid's Mystery box, and it had some pretty reds and pinks in it. So that's what I drew the inspiration from. That, and I needed Vday nails anyway, right?

But first things first - I made a wooden polish rack!!!



 

To show you how the shelves are set up

Click the pictures for a larger size. I made this out of a hardwood 1/4 underlayment. This wood is generally used for drawer bottoms or cupboard backings and things. There was multiple kinds, and I could have gone cheaper. But I thought, why not just go all out, I'll be happier in the end! So I did.
I still have one more to make, as there is about this much polish still waiting for a home. You know, the odds and ends bottles that can't make the rainbow. So I would say what you see here is about half of my collection. I REALLY need to update my collection page. So as soon as the sencong shelf is made, I'll do a count and get that doccumented.

Here is my pretty nails!!!


All Julep, so I don't have to use multiple tags.
Red - Molly
Pink - Niecy
White - Eileen
Silver Holo - Rebel

The tiny dotting tool worked perfectly on my pinkie, then suddenly stopped working for the others. Oh well, I made the mani work, I think.

Hope you all have a great day, regardless of Valentine's or other!!!

  1. The polish rack looks so professional! It's a two-tiered polish rack correct? I love how you included a little bar at the front to keep the polishes in. -- No how to or diy process post ?

    Hope your Valentine's was great :D

  3. Don't know why you feel your dotticures don't compare - this is beautiful! Just realize how much we see every little imperfection in our own mani's and don't notice everyone else's. That's often the source of my discontent with my manicures. Which is why I get such a kick out of the fact that I have a list of co-workers who want to see my new nails every time I change them - because I'll see places where I screw up, and my co-workers will ask, "Oh my gosh, how'd you get it so *perfect*?! (I laugh. Every time. EVERY time she says that! ^_^)
