A new way to store my nail polishes!

I've been obsessed with nail polishes for a few years now, always wanting more than I could possibly wear in a year! I would say that I have over 200 polishes now from OPI and Chanel to Rimmel and Maybelline. My stash was getting so big it was in two large boxes, so I decided it was time to go big. Lots of people on instagram had invested in a helmer from Ikea to store their polishes as the draws were tall enough for the polishes to stand up right, which is a must for me. I finally took the plunge and ordered one.

It was a pain to put together (Ikea flatpack!) but we managed it. When I say we I mean me, my sister and my dad. A three man job...

This is a bit of a picture heavy post but I wanted to show you the mass of nail polishes I own! Probably more than most salons do. I've organised the draws by colour of polish and think it worked out pretty well.

If anyone wants their nails doing, come on round ;)

Do any of you think you'll invest in a helmer? Does anyone think they have more polishes than me?

  1. Great idea - I really need a better storage since at the moment I've got nail polishes all over the house in whatever free drawer there is... Xx

  2. Such a good storage solution and for £25 that's a bargain!
