Back in May I did a post on how to create labels for your MAC Palettes, if you’re curious you can read the original post here.
I’m really been having a blast creating videos for YouTube, the Book of Fables series is one of my greatest creations and I love doing them more and more each day~ I’ve got some pretty exciting ones in the works, I can’t wait to show you guys!
However I’m keen to branch out and try my hand at other types of videos, vlogs for example, and little “how to” videos. So here is my first of what will hopefully be many to come
Let me know if you have any suggestions or requests, I want to do my best to make videos you guys will actually find both entertaining and useful! Yes, I’m not just about making useful videos, I want them to be entertaining as well Why not try and make life as fun as possible, yes?
Yes, another Monday, yet no polish post! I’m actually enjoying the break from having to swatch a bunch of polishes, but I’m hoping to bring them back starting next week I might move them around to different days in the future depending on how I go~
Today though, I wanted to talk about how I label my MAC palettes. For the longest time I used to just write the name on a sticker and stick it to the palette, but I’ve found that to be very inconvenient when I purchase more colours and want to move the pans around. So I came up with this design!
It’s a technique I used to use as a kid, when I wanted to laminate my drawings to turn them into bookmarks, but my parents couldn’t afford to have it done So I used sticky tape instead~ Steps below:
Write the name of the pan on a piece of paper
Cut out each label
Sandwich each label between two pieces of sticky tape
Cut out the label
Stick it on the palette using Blu-Tack
And that’s it! Reusable, waterproof and movable Hope you guys will find it useful!
I –love- nail polish. I remember my first polish was a $2 bottle of black I found at the $2 shop back when I was 12-13 years old. Over the years, my collection has grown quite a bit, to the point where it is a hassle to trudge through the storage boxes to find a colour I want. As much as I would love to have all my polishes on racks in front of me to pick, I just don’t have the space for that kind of display
I’ve always loved the nail charts you see hanging off the OPI stands in David Jones, and decided that would be the perfect way to select a polish. Not to mention, I’d know exactly what it would look like on my nail =D
I ordered these from TransDesign, and basically apply 2 coats of each of my polishes to the chart and wrote down the brand and colour. This is a great way to organise your polishes and know what colour I want to use without checking each bottle in the box =D Great for polish addicts~
I store my polishes by brand then colour in their boxes, so once I’ve picked the shade I want, grabbing the polish is easy!
My only complaint is for these particular charts, the polish can chip off over time as the ‘nails’ are very smooth. I don’t put a top coat over it because I want to see the true colour and texture of each polish.
Oh well, nothing is perfect! Let me know if you have other storage techniques / methods that work for you, I love learning about how people store / organise their makeup collections And wardrobes too!
