Good afternoon everyone! Today's post details how I organize my nail polish stash. This was a request from a reader, and I thought it would be a fun post to make, too!
So, for starters, I use one red Helmer to organize my polish collection. All of my polish fits into it. I keep a separate plastic bin type thing to keep all of my manicure supplies, which will not be included in this post. That bin holds things like foil, tape, acetone, cotton pads, half moon paper reinforcement stickers, files, etc.
The top drawer of my Helmer holds regular base coats and topcoats, matte topcoats and my holo topcoat, as well as nail wheels, nail art pens, and polish pens.
The next drawer down holds OPI and China Glaze. You will see in the rest of these photos that I organize by brand but then not much else after that. One of these days I will reorganize by brand and then by color (within brand categories).
The next drawer has Color Club, Zoya, Revlon, Kleancolor, Orly, Ulta, Essie, Del Sol, Nubar, NYX Girls and Barielle.
The next drawer has Wet N Wild, Sally Hansen, Sinful Colors, Essence, and then some random brands that I only have one or two of -- L'Oreal, Milani, Dare to Wear, Nina Ultra Pro, Hard Candy, Love and Beauty, snowman and pumpkin polishes.
The next drawer down isn't organized very well. It's the drawer where I keep all my frankening supplies and frankenpolishes! In here you will find frankens, empty bottles, loose glitter, leftover polish, etc.
In the last drawer I keep all of my special polishes... rares, expensives, hard-to-gets, or ones that are just special to me! This is where I keep my Deborah Lippmanns, Nfu Ohs, piCture pOlishes, Ozotics, and Lynnderellas.
So that's it! All of my polish has a home safe inside my sexy red Helmer. I hope you enjoyed seeing how I keep all of my polish organized!
