My Nail Polish Stash and Storage

The last time I showed you my stash was over a year ago and since then my collection has grown a fair bit. I invested in a Helmer a few months ago to combat the army of polish bottles slowly taking over every single surface in sight! I've had requests for a stash post/video so I thought I may as well oblige so here is just that!



I counted them all up after I filmed the video and the total is 313 bottles. What do you think, were you expecting more? I was! It's a lucky thing that I'm so stingy when it comes to buying beauty products or I think the total would be waaaaay higher.

This isn't absolutely everything I own to do with nails. I keep my base coats and top coats on a shelf next to my desk for easy access and I also have my brushes and stamping plates there too. If you're curious about my plates, you can see all of those in this video.

  1. I was definitely expecting more, but I think it's rather the good kind of surprise that there isn't.

  4. Awesome collection! Fab that you have loads of cheaper brands, I find them just as good sometimes... but I always think people with immaculately beautiful nails stick to the expensive brands. So it's good to see you have a massive mixture like I do!
    Cool storage solution too! X

  5. I just got a helmer today, I was surprised that I only used three drawers (and they aren't even full) for my 200 ish polishes. I was googling Helmers earlier and came across a post on a page called SammysLips about them. I was reading a few of the posts and then saw a picture which made me think it was you.... then I saw a comment by Sammersaurus and realised it WAS you!!!

  6. Great collection. I too thought you would have more. I too have helmers and they are great storage for nail polish/lacquer. I have done photos of my helmers, perhaps I should do a video too?? mmmm goes to have a long hard think about it. Great post. x

  15. I'm obsessed with counting mine, and I've got 108 - a long way to go until I reach you ;)

  17. Honestly, every time you post a video I just love listening to your voice!! Lol:P thanks for sharing this-I've wondered how many you've had since I found you. (I'm probably your biggest fan^_^) it's nice to see a nail blogger who doesn't have an insane amount of polishes!

  19. You're doing way better than me at keeping the stash reasonable! At last count mine was creeping up on 500, which it may or may not have passed since... I'm gonna go with not quite, since I've given away a few polishes I wasn't so fond of, but I've also bought some new ones so I can't be sure!

  20. I wish I had that much polish!! I keep trying to grow my collection, which is difficult when your favorite color is green so most of my polish is green, black, white and silver are my big colors too xD That and I'm not the greatest at being artistic.

  21. I have a similar storage, a 3 drawer unit.

  22. On saturday i bought a helmer from ikea for storage of my polishes without seeing your post :o what a coincidence!

  23. Hey there, just wondering why you organize by brand instead of color?

    ReplyDelete
  24. Always interesting to see how other nail polish lovers keep their stash. I love my helmer too. You made me laugh 'chucking' things back in the drawers lol

  25. Ooh, you're British! And northern! I don't know why, but I'd assumed you were American. *three cheers for the Brits*

  26. The only thing that would give this a more WOW factor would be if the drawers were transparent. I can only imagine the colours you would get from all those nail polish bottles you’ve got in storage!
