What better time to post photos of my new LABELED nail wheels than now while my nails are short little nubs!?
I FINALLY got these finished (5 months later...)! I photographed the wheels outside under overcast skies. Most of the swatches are color accurate but some may be a little off. Blame that on my camera :) For the labels, I created them using Adobe Illustrator and Indesign. It's okay if you don't know what those are... It was time consuming but easy :) And now I've got every color swatched and easily accessible! No more searching through plastics boxes to find a polish to wear!!
Bellebathandbeyond- You should get started filling them up! It takes FOREVER to paint those things!! Just like your nails, they take 2-3 coats... I was able to create the labels by using Illustrator. It's a long process to explain. I did a lot of test prints to make sure it would come out right :)
Megan- I'm all out of wheels now! I got mine from ebay.
I just ordered some nail wheels off ebay a couple days ago. I was going to do nail swatches and comparison without undo my manicures, and to practice techniques. But what a great idea to organise your stash and colours. x
First of all if I ever buy nail wheels... I need to know where you got those! They look way way more sturdy than most I have seen where I just feel like the tabs will break off... Also are they re-usable? Does anyone know? I have always been curious....
Also for those on a tight budget... I keep my colors on index cards. One swipe of color (or sometimes more to get an accurate color) followed by the name. I keep them by brand so it is easier to find, so all my cards have a brand name as header. Plus it is convient to just grab them if I know I am going to town. That way I know what colors I have already. It helps with me not buying so many doubles of colors.
Hey those of you who are looking for nail wheels that are cheap and easy to find use AMAZON. I get all my wheels from one seller who sends 10 wheels with 20 blank nails its cheap and shipping is usually only 2-3 days. Just type nail wheel in the amazon search and it will pop right up.
