Nail paint collection - Swatches.

A while back I did a post on my nail paint collection, which is not as large as I would want it to be, but I intend to remedy that soon. I already disclosed my wishlist and put up pics of the bottles here.

(that is so many surgeons not being able to know their calling when they first see it- but jokes apart )
