Does every catalogue their polishes??

Post  shoppingaddict on Wed Mar 20, 2013 5:06 am

I'm ordered polishes that I think I already have?! Thats twice this week!! Arghhhhh. pale

I think I need to make an easily accessible list really. Any suggestions?

The information would need to be portable really as I buy a lot out and about.

I've started to put mine into an Excel spreadsheet, but I'm not sure how accessible that would be on a mobile. Do you have some kind of notepad tool on your phone that you could use?

Just out of sheer nosiness, which polishes have you doubled up on?

I recommend the app Evernote. I've managed to save all my polish wheels info complete with pictures on there. Plus there is a search facility so you can do a check on the name if necessary. It's saved me a couple of times from buying dupes! It's easy to use too although you have a monthly upload limit

This is what it looks like

That was the main page where you can look at all files and search on polish names and this is what each individual file looks like

Hope this makes sense - it's not the easiest thing to demonstrate!!!

I have an excel spreadsheet for mine.
It totals up my entire collection and displays different count level, e.g. how many from a certain brand or collection. It's also how I monitor my untrieds and colour saturation. I email a version to myself every now and again so I can read via iPhone.

Doesn't help with dupes unless I think to google swatches with my phone.

That Evernote app looks pretty cool! Very Happy

It certainly won't work on my trusty old pink Samsung though. Wink

I had an excel spread sheet. I got lazy with it though and still ended up doubling up on a few and only realised when it came to selling. I even managed to order 2 of one polish in the same order accidentally!!

I've doubled up a couple of times recently, with Kiko and OPi. I also bought a Color Club that was practically identical to a Barry M glitter. I keep thinking I ought to do something about my storage but I never seem to get round to it. I have a tatty notebook that I keep basic notes in, but it's basically shopping research and shipping cost info with an ever increasing want list.

I used to... I probably should do it again, now that I'm moving and I have to get rid of some.

I have a pocket Domino filofax that's divided into ABC/DEF/GHI etc. sections and then a sheet of paper for each brand... with the name and a small swatch of the colour on the paper. Been a while since I updated it though.

Excel sheet for me as well but I am really tempted by evernote now.

I have all mine on sticks not wheels and I forgot to label them so I have 300 to try and match.
They are all split by helmer drawers and colours.

I've started to use an excel spreadsheet for mine. I just put the name, brand, size & collection name but I'm thinking of adding extras like main colour and finish (cream, shimmer, ect.).

Nearly done with cataloging! I have 43 models own polishes! That's more than the other brands. They clearly started my love!

Wow that is love, I have 29 in my collection, only 2 untried though. I do think they are amazing polishes.

I use an excel spreadsheet, sorted by brand then name, colour, collection and finish. I also have some swatch sticks on the way (supposedly... I've been waiting a month!).

My Excel spreadsheet is useful for online purchases but I can't access it when I'm out and about shopping. I may have to print it out as otherwise I still have to rely on my memory which seems to be gradually getting worse as I get older! Neutral

Good idea in theory, but I'm not sure that would work on my lovely old pink Samsung E370![You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
