True Life: I’m Addicted to Nail Polish

Everyone that knows me, knows that I have a serious addiction…..to nail polish. I was never really big on nail polish until I got to college. Before that, I used to get acrylic sets, so I never really purchased my own nail polish. But during my freshman year, I made the decision to stop getting acrylics and start growing my own nails, which meant I needed to buy more polish.

When most people start a new “trend,” they want to buy every single product on the market for that trend, and baby, I was no exception. So I bought, and bought, and bought more nail polish like a typical product junkie. I am just now at the point where I don’t feel the need to purchase every new nail polish, but if there is a color that speaks to me, I will get it!

Right now, I am storing my large (100+) polish collection in my Caboodles Ultimate Organizer. I purchased this case about two years back from Ulta ($45), which is still available if you’d like to buy it. Unfortunately, I have outgrown this case and cannot fit all my nail supplies inside, so I am now looking for alternative storage.

Below, I will post a few pictures (Please excuse the poor image quality) of my polish collection and storage. All of my nail polish isn’t pictured because they couldn’t fit into the set up of my picture (haha), so there about 35 polishes that are missing. You’ll see a tiny plastic bag in my box as well. It contains mini OPI polishes that I’ve received as gifts so I don’t lose them or over look them.polish

Welcome my delightful bloggers and…..bleaders? I should probably just say blog readers instead of trying to be catchy…..Anywhoozles, I want to start off by asking you guys to bare with me. *Here comes the disclaimer.* This is my first time writing a blog, or writing anything that’s available for a large number of people to read for that matter so don’t expect a literary genius. English class was not my favorite. My grammar may not be correct all of the time and I might speak with a little slang and Ebonics, but in my book that’s okay….After all, I won’t be the one teaching your children or little siblings English at the local elementary school. Oh yeah, there may be some use of profanity, so please forgive my potty mouth in advance.

My name is Jaelin, yes its a boy’s name too. I’m just a regular, chocolate, Caribbean gyal- V.I. Massive- that is obsessed with all things in the beauty realm. Yes, I am that girl that spends over an hour on her makeup; the friend that takes forever to get ready; the one that has a specific manicurist at the nail salon and I love it! This blog is intended for all things woman. Hair, makeup, skincare, nails, little fashion, maybe even some sexuality stuff; who knows. This is a buy one, get everything kind of blog.

I hope ya’ll (yes, I’m from Texas; no, we don’t ride horses) join me on this journey through beauty and all the things that encompass it! Hopefully ya’ll don’t just sit and listen to me blab each post, lets get interactive! Part of me wanting to start this blog is wanting to hear your opinions, so let me hear it! Agree or disagree, I wanna know what you think, so don’t be shy! (cause I’m definitely not) Without further ado, welcome to the blog of a Juicy Complected Girl!
