Are you ready for this?



  

Happy Sunday! I took these pictures a few weeks ago and in between now and then, a few polishes have been added to this little collection. I wanted to show you guys what polishes I have and how they look all together. I was curious to see how they would look like this too :P I just wanted to share the nail polish love with you all <3 I would love to see your collection as well! I also want to find a better way to store them...At least, an easier way to access them. I have them in 4 shoe boxes under my desk and sometimes when I need a polish, it's just a pain to pull out the boxes. It would be nice to have them under my desk still, but in something that has a pull out drawer of some sort. I've seen a few storage ideas from other bloggers. How do you store yours?

  1. Great collection :] I wish I had room to store mine in drawers or what have you, but mine are in plastic boxes with lids, and a shoe box.

  3. great collection! I have a drawer set that's used in offices to store paper clips or pens. It's about the size of a computer tower. and then I made my own wall rack out of poster board and it has almost 100 polishes on it, it's really sturdy and doesn't take up much room!

  4. Aww the essie heart <3 It seems like your collection is coming along nicely! And girl it's only going to get worse ;) But if you're looking for affordable option they have really neat tutorials on youtube on how to make a nail polish rack from foam board and a glue gun. They seem really sturdy too as people mount them on walls. I wanted to buy some racks on amazon or ebay but wayyyyy to expensive to ship here.

    1. lol hehe :) I know, right! I'm kind of scared about it getting out of hand lol. You know, I was looking at those tutorials online and it seems pretty sturdy. I think that will have to be a project to try out when I have my own place :D

  7. Pretty! I love seeing these pictures. I just did inventory of mine the other night and the number almost made me sick when I calculated it in $... >.< Im living in a studio apartment with my boyfriend right now so storage is non existent at this point. I have two small stacked plastic drawers that my polish has outgrown, so the rest are in trays, plastic caddy, and boxes that my nail mail has come in. For under your desk I would say plastic drawers is a good solution. But be careful, from my experience plastic drawers tend to easily tip over from the weight when you pull them out. I hope to upgrade to a helmer one day *dreams*.

    1. omg...I was thinking about doing that $-wise....but I think it would make me sick too lol. It's ok though! It's our passion!! Oh no! I hope your polish gets some storage soon. Thanks for the tip. I can totally see myself (being clumsy and all) pulling a drawer out and having all the whole knock over lol. Hehe a helmer would be so nice to have if we had space to put it... :D

  8. Awwww Trace, seeing your collection makes me think waaaaaaaay back to when Nessa introduced us to Konad hahaha...I always say this, I know but WOW. It's crazy how we just took it and ran with it! It's crazy to see your whole collection! I want to take one of these pictures too heh...along with the spreadsheet and whatnot I have to finish ;p

  10. I love your Essie heart! So cute! Your collection is beautiful. How do you like the Pop polishes? I've seen them around but I'm always hesitant to buy them.
    I used to store mine in shoe boxes too! They were in the basement where no one could see the overflowing mess :P Now I have an Ikea Helmer and it sits proudly in my living room :D

    1. Thanks! I really like the Pop polishes! They're a little on the pricey side but the consistency is pretty good. The ones I have don't come out glossy though. They have that almost matte finish to them. omg! Yea, Frosso was saying how she wants a helmer some day. Those look like the perfect nail storage systems!

  11. ha this is an amazing collection :D
    i never realized how much nail polish i owned until i moved and my luggage restriction was 30 kilos and 10 kilos carry on...i had to weigh everything to make sure i was in the specifications otherwise the penalty for every extra kilo is ridiculous anywhoooo needless to say 14 pounds of nail polish wasn't something i could take with me, so for the meantime they're being homed at my brother's place until my next trip where for sure i'll be bringing them with me haha

  16. Beautiful! Just beautiful!!! I see your Essies got a special place and design, lol. I store some of my polishes in a wall rack and the rest in my helmer. Not easy to see everything in the helmer, but I know which drawers have what and can search for them easier that way.

  18. Great collection you've got over there! Mine is in some kind of sideboard. I've just looked at it now after seeing your pictures and I've realized that it has grown a lot since I moved my polishes inside the sideboard! There's almost no space left for new polishes! That can't be good :D

    1. thanks! lol that will always happen huh? After you move them to somewhere with more space, you end up filling up the space! haha :D
