Helmer/Stash Tour!

I've had a few people on Instagram asking about my polish stash and how I organize everything, so I thought I'd do a post about it since I organized everything today! :D (By the way, I usually write my posts on my computer, but it's acting up so I'm doing this on my phone. Sorry for any weird formatting!)

Okay, first I thought I'd show you my "polish station" :) 

I have a helmer on each side of my desk, my desk lamp with a daylight bulb, (which also holds all my favorite brushes and dotting tools etc.) my spinning polish stand that my boyfriend gave me for Christmas that holds my indies, and random things in the compartment under the desk. (Bubble wrap, spare boxes etc.) :)

Now, for the first side of my spinner! 
Side #1
From top to bottom, left to right: 
My Sindie Pop! Lacquers, Lacquer Lusts, Cult Nails, Lime Crimes, Tillie Polish, Femme Fatale Lacquers, and Frankenstinepolish Polishes!

Side #2
Next is Polished by KPT, The Hungry Asian, KB Shimmer, Lac Attack, Spectraflair topcoat from a friend, XOXO Nail Candy, Love Angeline Polish, and Bean Juice. :) 


Side #3
Here are my Wicked Polishes, Happy Hands, Black Cat Lacquer, Picture Polish, Lush Lacquer, Tryst Lacquers, and Polish Me To Go. :)

Side #4
Here are all my lovely Laquerlicious polishes, Ethereal Lacquers, Miss Myas, Liquid Sky Lacquers, and my first indies ever, Frankenfingers! :) 

Anddd now on to the helmers. :) 

Drawer #1

This drawer contains my Zoyas, my "designer" polishes such as Butter London, LancĂ´me, Ciate etc. my Island Girls, some cute minis, and my favorite black and white that I use all the time. (Wet n Wild "Black Creme" and Nina "French White") 

Drawer #2
This drawer is the first part of my China Glazes, these are the main "collection" polishes and a couple limited editions that I've had for years and years. (I'm a huge sucker for China Glaze. Also, excuse my weird organizing.) ;)

Drawer #3
Here are the rest of my CGs, ones that aren't part of a collection that I own.

Drawer #4
My OPIs! This ones self-explanatory. ;)

Drawer #5
This drawer has my Orlys, Color Club "Halo Hues" and other Color Clubs, and my Essies.

Drawer #6
These are polishes my mom has brought back for me from around the world. (She's a flight attendant.) Some of them are from Germany, others from Japan.

Drawer #7
This is my drawer of random brands such as Klean Color, American Apparel, Julie G, Sinful Colors, etc. This one is by far the most colorful. And heaviest. :p

Drawer #8
Here's all my Juleps! And minis, and stripers. :)

Drawer #9

This drawer holds all of my topcoats, basecoats, nail and cuticle prep, etc. :) 

Drawer #10

My nail art supplies! I have so much random stuff in here. Spare brushes, tape, glitter, fimo rods, nail wheels. Lots more. :) 

And that's it for my stash! It took me hours and hours to organize this, since I moved and everything was everywhere. And I know some of you were wondering how many polishes I have total. I told myself I wasn't going to say, but I've decided it could be worse. ;) The grand total is 521. That's including minis. ;) 

Hope you enjoyed my crazy long post! Hahah :) ;) ❤
