Twinsie Tuesday: Nail Polish Collection

18 Feb

Twinsie TuesdayNo mani today.  Instead, we’re all showing off our nail polish collections.  I suspect that mine is smaller than some being that I don’t generally swatch polishes and focus more on nail art.  I haven’t counted in a long time, but my best guess would be somewhere around 250.

PolishCollection (1) WLcopyI keep my polishes in a red Helmer inside my closet. The top usually looks something like this. I’m not very good at putting my polishes away after using them. When I run out of room, I’ll take the time to put them away. You’ll see lots of holes where polishes are missing because I simply haven’t put them away.

PolishCollection (2) WLcopyThe top drawer is base coats, top coats and random art polishes.

PolishCollection (4) WLcopyI organize them by brand. This drawer is OPI (including NOPI and SOPI) and Cult Nails.

PolishCollection (5) WLcopyNext is China Glaze, Julep, Sinful Colors, Orly, Color Club, Deborah Lippmann, Lynnderella and Glitter Gal.

PolishCollection (6) WLcopyEach drawer gets more and more random. This one is Jordana, Essie, Finger Paints, Kleancolor, Shimmer, Elle, Milani, American Apparel, Zoya, Nina Ultra Pro, Barry M, CND, Ozotic and Dollish Polish.

PolishCollection (7) WLcopyThis is the most random of them all. Here we have Wet ‘n Wild, NYX, Sally Hansen, Nails Inc, Icing, Revlon, and a couple frankens.

    Totally jealous of all of your OPI DS polishes! I definitely need to join the Helmer party…this looks like such a great way to store your stash!

      Thanks Lindsay! One of my local beauty suppliers carries them so I check them out every time I go. I wish I had some of the older ones though.

      Helmers are definitely the way to go. They’re perfect for polish! You may notice in my last picture though that there are a few bottles at the back that are laying down; they are too tall for the drawers.

    Love the red helmer! Fun collection

    We both have about the same size stash! Since I don’t swatch and tend to stick to nail art as well, it doesnt require as many polishes :)

      It’s cheaper too! :)

    Even if it’s not a gigantic collection, it is still a gorgeous one! :)

    Look at those DS’! :) I love the red container, if my walls weren’t red that could have been an option for me. hehe.

    Nice stash!! It’s cool that you can tuck it away nicely in a closet ;0).

    Looks great! I really need to get a Helmer! :)

    Great stash! I’ve been debating about getting a helmer for so long and probably will in the future…
