How do You Swatch Nail Polish?

Before I go any further, I must give credit where credit it due. I first saw this amazing way to swatch nail polishes by watching videos by I thought to myself this is so freaking awesome!!!

My husband is the sole provider for our family. I really like buying anything that deals with nail polish. I love the nail art wheel that allows you to display all your nail polish swatches so conveniently on a little wheel.These are great,but can become a little pricey. I've gotten some for as low as $.99 each wheel. Sally's has them for $5.99 for a set of 10 wheels in a package.

Now let me share with you a great alternative. Like I mentioned earlier, I saw this in a YouTube video. See link above. Yes these are spoons.Isn't that awesome!! You can get a whole package of spoon for less than a dollar. And unlike the wheels above, you can actually write the brand and name of each nail polish!!! Right now,I cant even remember the name of the polishes on the wheel except for maybe 3.

You can even use knives, which is the way I prefer because I tend to write big.
Storing them can be easy too.I just grabbed a clean empty jar an placed them in there. You can make the jar look as pretty as you want by adding glass marbles inside the jar and ribbon around the outside.
Right now my a jar looks quite homely. I don't have the marbles yet but have plenty of ribbon. I just have not put any on it yet.
So yes this is the way I am now going to be swatching my nail polishes. If you are like me and don't like to clean dishes after a party or get together, then I am sure you have plenty of left-over plastic utensils.
