Nail Varnish Database

The Content Theme for May 2021 is 'Tracking in Notion' so I thought that it would be fun to have two seriously disconnected databases and explore them. Namely, my nail varnish database (always views in gallery view - linked to my Daily Journal - obviously) and my housework tracking database (always viwed in a filtered way). Who doesn't like a bit of randomness?!

I’m going to go through how I track my nail varnishes (to make sure that I don’t buy too many in the same colour)! As well as how I track the housework that’s done (especially when I’m not at home) to make sure that things are cleaned in the house more than if I didn’t have the list!

These are two very random databases to have in the same video, but hey, it’s my channel and I’ll be random if I want to!

Not only that, but this video illustrates that Notion can be used for a myriad of different things, it doesn’t always have to be hyper-business-productive, sometimes it just needs to do a specific job!

You know me, any excuse to get my nerd on in Notion!
