Swatches on a stick. Popiscle stick. Swatchicles YAY. I saw this idea on Very Emily. Hers looked so pretty, I just had to make my own!
It's super easy, a little time consuming if you have a lot of polishes, but it's all good in the end. All you need are some fake nails - I got mine from Bornprettystore but they're all different sizes so you can probably find some same size ones on ebay. You also need a hot glue gun and some icecream sticks!
Glue the edges of the top of the stick and hold your nail into place. That's it! So easy.
And then you label the sticks, I like to label them first and then paint it, just because it's easier for me that way, and I won't get mixed up with the dupes.
Now I clearly see the dupes I have in my collection which I didn't know I had. And it's a lot easier to see how the colour looks against your nail rather than holding the bottle along your fingers haha. I realised I have a lot of reddish pink colours haha. But they're the prettiest shade on your fingers, don't you agree? :)
It's also easier to make ombre nails! Check out this cute pastel nail combination I found.
And now they're just sitting pretty in my tin on my desk, ready for the next time I decide to paint my nails :)
