Organize Your Polish With Color Clutch

Color Clutch review on iliketotalkblogPolish Organization Made Easy

I’m a fan of collecting polishes and used to have a pretty big collection compared to the standard polish user. One thing that always was a problem as a polish aficionado is how to store your polish in a way where nothing breaks, all the colors are easily organized, and easy to get to. I went from using small makeup bags, to shoe boxes, to old plastic tupperware, to finally IKEA storage units.  In the past year I have done a lot of purging, donating to friends and family since I want to keep things better organized and have found the perfect solution with Color Clutch.

Color Clutch review on iliketotalkblogColor Clutch satisfies the obsessive need to keep your beautiful polishes neat and tidy. The sturdy boxes house fourteen bottles that stay nestled in the foam bed to protect from messy disasters. Because of the flexibility of the foam, you can store many different brands of lacquer that vary in size and shape. It comes in either black, white or a special edition purple Jamberry option.

Color Clutch review on iliketotalkblogWhile I love the clear window on the front that keeps the bottles dust free and easy to quickly view, I love the color coding section on the side so you can do a swatch swipe of each polish so you don’t even have to pull the box off the shelf to see what’s inside. When I was photographing the box I was afraid to actually paint the color on in fear that once you paint on the box it’s there forever — but turns out you can remove the polish with acetone and start over if you switch out colors!

The Color Clutch is easy to travel or move with which I know is a HUGE pain when I moved with my 200+ polishes last time. These can easily be stacked and moved without worrying that there will be a huge pool of nail lacquer swimming in the back of your car. And don’t forget that you can easily bring ALL your favorites to the next ladies night in you have planned!

Each Color Clutch is $19.99 and can be purchased online or at you can find them at my third favorite store (First, being Target, second being Sephora) The Container Store. Talk about organization HEAVEN! If you have a larger collection you can easily stow all your boxes on a shelving unit which is what I plan to do.

Gradient Feather Nails #NAILART@Claude_Online

Just a quick post to share my latest manicure. I think it turned out pretty good 🙂   I’ve been doing a lot of gradients lately, and really wanted to use some decals I recently bought at the born pretty store.  I love using water decals because they are really easy to use ans come in a million designs.

I started out with a bright aquamarine and shimmery green gradient for the background.  I love using a slightly shimmer polish in gradients it looks super pretty up close!

I used Cult Nails Doppleganger as a top coat over the gradient to make it blend even more smoothly, while adding a soft shimmery glaze over it at the same time.

I decided to use some feather decals that only require a quick soak in water for a few seconds to loosen from the cardstock backing. I then used seche vite to top coat and seal it all in.

I also got some pretty white flowers to use for nail art too but they’re kinda big as I found out and I cant get them to stick.  I also got a few foil things that will be cool to use.  Do you like to use nail art supplies?  What do you use?  What nail art you into right now?

Splatter Nails

Below is my attempt at splatter nail design. It required me to tape each finger up with three pieces of tape (only to expose the nail).

You should first paint your nails with a basecoat color of your choice. Then choose 1-3 additional colors to “splatter” on. You will need straws to do this. I used straws from mcdonalds and they were pretty big. I suspect a thinner straw would have been easier.

Another thing I noticed is that holographic or metallic colors look the best with the splatter technique. Well, in my opinion.

I can’t wait to do this style again, but with different colors. What colors would you choose to do?
