Hello, I'm a nail polish addict!

Hi there!

So it might be quite obvious that I'm new to the blogging world. If it's not... well, hello, I'm new here :-) I have always been entranced by nail polish and all of the possibilities. Only recently have I discovered nail designs. That's mostly what inspired me to start a blog.

While organizing my nail polishes into a blog-worthy order for a photo opportunity, my polish rack toppled over and ALL of my polishes fell onto my carpet. 5 of them shattered and completely stained my carpet. They also got their bright colors and glass all over each and every one of my other bottles of polish. What a mess! My manicure was also ruined, but that kind of goes without saying.

This isn't what I had in mind for my first blog post, but hey, it'll do.

I didn't think to take a picture immediately after I spilled nail polish on my carpet. This was taken
after I scrubbed it with nail polish remover and Windex. I had also already shampooed my carpet.
I guess it's not bad for hot pink, red, purple, brown, and clear (I got lucky on that one).

This is my solution. It's in my master bathroom, so I guess I can
somewhat get away with this. Don't ask why it's carpeted. I didn't do it.

By the time this picture was taken, I had already cleaned what I could of
my most precious nail polishes. Here's a small selection of what I've yet
to clean. You can see the shards of glass on the 2 middle bottles.

Once I'm finished cleaning all of my bottles of polish, I'll get on with the good stuff.

In the meantime, I have some questions for anyone who might stumble upon this blog post:
1. Have you ever spilled polish on your carpet?
   1a. How the heck did you remove it!?

Until next time...


  1. Dang, I can't say. I don't have a carpet!

  2. Oh man ... I don't know, luckily we don't have carpets in our house. But I did spill it on the chair pillow, and it's still there, as nothing really helped. :/ Welcome to nail blog community! :)

  3. Sorry to hear about your pillow! A friend of mine pointed out that my broken nail polish bottle count would likely have been much higher had I not had carpet. So, in a way, I suppose I'm thankful my house was built with tacky bathroom carpet :) ... Thank you for the warm welcome :D

  4. I've spilled a lot of nail polish.. I have wooden floor.. And the stains are still there :/ I think the only solutions would be to remove the top layer of the entire floor.. And I won't do that.. I just see it as my personal touch in my apartment :) haha..

  5. I have spilled some polish as well, but only on the table, where I normally paint. Its our livingroom table, so whenever friends are over, they get to see my creative mess of a onceuponatime black table. hehe

  6. Haha! One time I was shaking a polish against my palm about to put it on, and the bottle literally shattered in my hand! Splattered all over the wall, the nightstand, the bed sheets, and the bedskirt. The bedskirt still has streaks of silver polish on it to this day!
