keys and organization

A while back I wanted to decorate my keys. Now I know most people decorate there keys by adding lots of key chains  but I wanted to do a bit more. I decided to colour my keys instead.
when I was younger my best friend had coloured keys. I know you can get pre coloured keys but i didn't see any need to get myself new keys when the old ones aren't broken. So I put my thinking cap on and thought about ways to colour my keys in a cheaply fashion. A lot of ideas came to mind, like getting spray paint and painting them that way.
I was almost out the door and on my way to the store to get the paint when I thought of how little paint I actually needed for just my 2 keys. So it was back to the drawing board for me.
After some  more brainstorming I thought of using nail polish and some glitter I already owned. This made the project a lot cheaper.
coloured keys I decided not to do they actual key part because I wanted to still use my keys as actual keys.
After the painting process was done I started organizing my nail polishes and colour coding them. In my head this a totally normal and sane thing to do. This took quite some more  time than I had hoped for. Since I had to paint every label with a different polish, wait from them to dry and then remember which polish I had to paste the label on.
nail polish labels it was a tedious process
I also found out i have a bit more nail polishes then I actually need. And yet I keep buying them its a bit like my book obsession, will explain this obsession of mine someday.
