Holy... I didn't realize how much polish I had until I had to move it across the city! Let's take a peek inside my Helmer!
Drawer 1: Untrieds
This is mostly Color Club from January's haul. The polishes at the front are darker and I want to try to wear them before spring comes... well before it starts looking like spring anyway... 59 full size polishes, 16 minis in this drawer
Drawer 2: Unblogged
These are polishes I've worn but for whatever reason haven't made it onto this blog. Most are from before I started this blog, otherwise the pictures didn't turn out and I didn't realize until the polish was already chipped. Again front section is polishes I want to wear before spring. 58 polishes
Drawer 3: Colors already blogged about (mostly cremes)
I didn't know what to call this drawer. These are all the polishes that aren't glitter (or metallic/neutral) that have already made it onto the blog. As I get through blogging the unblogged/untried my helmer will go back to being organized by colors. 37 polishes
Drawer 4: Glitters already blogged about
Glitters... also crackles (ew!) and textures. 36 polishes
Drawer 5: Nail care and Misc. polish
Base coat, top coat, strengthener, cuticle oils
20 polishes (not counting base/top coat, oils)
Drawer 6: Nail art supplies
Acrylic paint set, brush/dotting tool set, nail foils, empty bottles (frankening maybe?), nail art pens, q-tips, hole punch re-enforcement stickers, stamping stuff other than polish etc.
Total: 210 full size polishes + 16 minis = 226 total
I've found that separating out my untrieds is REALLY helping me resist the temptation to buy more polish... it really scares me how much polish is in that drawer!
How many polishes do you have in your stash? How do you organize them? By finish? By color? By brand?
