My Helmer and Nail Polish CollectionSunday, January 13, 2013
Good afternoon, dear readers!! :D
I am excited to show you one of the things I got for Christmas: an Ikea Helmer!!
These are just perfect for storing nail polishes, and after a couple rearranging attempts, I decided it was time for the unveiling.
I got the Helmer in an eggshell colour, and decided to spruce it up with some wintery decorations.
Here is what it looks like on the inside (there were a couple not put in the Helmer when I took photos, oh well! XD):
Drawe 2: Pinks and purples:
Drawer 3: Yellows, golds, greens and more blues:
Drawer 4: Taupes, multi-colored glitters, oranges and reds:
Drawer 6: Indies and favourites
Yay, I love how easy it is to find polish and store it with the Helmer. :D
And for the rest of my collection, here is a stand completely full of frankens that my sister and I made:
A bit dusty....
And here is my drawer of indies that I made and backup polishes:
Whew! I can't get over how much my collection has grown in just over a year. At the end of 2011 my nail polish collection was this:
I really liked that setup but I ran out of room fast.
2013 is going to be a very toned down year for purchasing nail polishes. I'm not allowed to get anything more than what will fit in my helmer. It seems unlikely considering how many polishes I got within the last 12 months, but I have so many polishes as it is that I really do not need any more. So, I will focus on getting the ones that I really love, and that's it. Wish me luck!!!
Have a wonderful day!
