If you have a collection of nail polish you know how hard it can be to remember what colors you own. How many times have you bought a great new color only to get home and realize that you already had it? That is frustrating and it costs you time and money to return the duplicate. You can just keep the extra but now you just have two bottles of the same polish and no new color to try. If you'd like to avoid this and other annoying polish issues keep reading to learn how Stockpile easy free home inventory system can help.
What's in a Name?
Some polish companies get really creative with their color names. OPI in particular is known for their clever naming. I'm Not Really a Waitress, This Color Is Making Waves, Elephantastic Pink, Vampsterdam, the list goes on and on. Essie, Zoya, Sally Hansen, and CND have all stepped up their game when it comes to naming colors. While all this creativity can help you remember which polishes you've tried before it can still be tricky to remember which ones you own and which ones you just tried the last time you had a manicure in a salon.
Have It or Had It?
When you're contemplating a polish purchase it's important to know whether this is a polish that you tried at the salon and loved or one you love so much you already own it. If you tried it once at the salon and have picked it again from the wall of polish in your local store it's probably a good one to purchase. If you've already have it at home you'll want to pass. Polish doesn't stay good forever. If you've ever tried to polish your nails with old polish you know what I mean. It gets thick, it doesn't go on smoothly, and it takes forever to dry. Not a good result. Fresh polish is definitely best so you don't want to stock up on duplicate colors.
Stockpile makes it easy to keep track of the colors in your collection. You can even create item records for the colors you've tried at the salon and make note of the ones that you'd like to purchase in the future. Plus, since Stockpile is mobile compatible you'll have easy access to all this info when you're standing in the store.
Where Is It?
Knowing what you have is just one piece of the puzzle. Knowing where to find it when you want it is just as critical. Unless you have a polish wall like a salon in your home, you are probably storing your polish in a basket or bin in a closet or a cabinet. That can make it really difficult to find the color that you want when you want it. Lucky for you, Stockpile makes it easy to pinpoint where items are kept.
