Nail polish storage and confessions from an addict – opbevaring af neglelak og bekendelser fra en afhængig

Dansk tekst, se under fotos. 
When I in the end of august 11 decided to give nail polish another go after several years, I thought to myself: - Ah, well, I probably will go a little overboard and maybe end up with 20 bottles tops. So I found a suitable container with a lid, where I could store them upright, cool and dark – because this is the best for the polishes.  
Little did I know…The container was not very pretty, and in my endless hours on the internet I had seen some nice acrylic racks, and decided that I really wanted one. Mid September I found one at my favourite nail polish shop at all times http://buynailsdirect.com/ but shipping to Denmark would be expensive because of the size. So I found one in the UK at http://www.venusnailsupplies.co.uk/, and got it three days later.
And even then I thought to myself: - This rack holds 60 bottles of China Glaze, it’s insane, you’ll never, EVER get that many polishes!
October 23. I ordered one more just like it plus a rack for 30 nail art bottles because there is no more room, even if I have taken some cheap crackle polishes off it. And since I might as well fill up the order without it getting more expensive freight-wise I also bought two Misa polishes (my first) and one from a brand called MK, that I haven’t heard about… One of the Misa’s is Teddy Bear – and yes, I did buy it because of the name – sighhhhh
How did your addiction evolve, please tell me???

This photo is from mid September – midten af september:

This is now 11.10.24 – og nu godt en måned senere:

Da jeg I slutningen af august købte de første neglelakker efter i mange år at have været uden, tænkte jeg: - Tja, du har det jo med at gå lidt amok, så du ender nok op med 20 flasker, hvorefter jeg fandt en lille boks med låg, så jeg kunne opbevare dem opretstående, mørkt og køligt, som anbefales af producenterne.
Jeg skulle bare have vidst…
Men den var ikke pæn, boksen altså, og under mine endeløse timer på internettet stødte jeg på flotte acryl displays beregnet til formålet. I midten af september fandt jeg lige den jeg ønskede i min favorit neglelak butik http://buynailsdirect.com/ men på grund af størrelsen, blev portoen for dyr. Men jeg fandt en i England hos http://www.venusnailsupplies.co.uk/, og fik den tre dage senere.
Og selv da tænkte jeg for mig selv: - Du må jo være sindssyg, den kan rumme 60 flasker, så mange får du da ALDRIG  nogensinde…
Den 23. oktober bestilte jeg så en mere plus en mindre, der kan rumme 30 nail art flasker. Der nemlig ikke plads til flere, selvom jeg har taget nogle billige krakeleringslakker fra Kina af den. Og for at udnytte mængden jeg kunne købe for portoen, ja så ”kom jeg også til at købe” tre neglelakker, to fra Misa (mine første – og den ene hedder Teddy Bear – og jo, jeg købte den på grund af navnet – suuuk) samt en fra MK Polishes, som jeg ikke kender.
Hvis du har læst dette, kunne jeg rigtigt godt tænke mig at høre, hvordan din neglelaks-afhængighed startede :)

  8. Hej Michelle!
    Det er yderst sjældent, der er behov for at tynde neglelakker, men det er vigtigt at du IKKE bruger acetone eller neglelakfjerner.
    Det skal være en neglelak fortynder. Jeg bruger Seche Vite Restore :)
