NOTD: China Glaze - Liquid Leather and Platinum Silver

As promised, I'm starting to swatch the polishes I got in the China Glaze Unforgettable Set.
Below is Liquid Leather and Platinum Silver. Liquid Leather is the sheerest, messiest black polish I've ever used! This is 4 coats!! To cover the streaks I used China Glaze Magic Matte over it and then used Platinum Silver and Konad Plate m51 to stamp the flowers. And then it still didn't look good so I used another coat of Magic Matte. Which was probably a mistake since I like the contrast of matte and glossy. Ugh this was just one of those manis that you keep messing with to try and make it look good and it just gets worse and worse lol.

Notice the sheerness next to my cuticle on my thumb and ring finger nail???

China Glaze is by far, hands down, my favorite nail polish brand. But Liquid Leather is a just a plain old mess. I don't recommend it unless you've got lots of time on your hands to apply multiple coats and you don't mind waiting around for it to dry. *Sigh* I want to believe it was just a bad bottle! Anyone else have issues with it?

Another Sinful Colors haul

I told myself I wouldn't buy any more Sinful Colors polishes since the first 3 I bought were super sheer, but for $1.88? They're worth it to give 'em another shot! Right?

Here's what I got:

Nail Polish Collection and storage?

I'm currently trying to swatch all my nail polishes and get an organized list of what I have. While I was doing that I snapped a couple of pics of my collection.
 Box 1: (Click on the image to enlarge it)

Box 2:

Probably doesn't look like a lot but the current count is 143 bottles (not including base/top/clear coats, treatments, nail art or konad special polishes.  Just regular colored polishes)

Anyone got a better way of storing they're polishes? This just looks messy to me.
