It’s been awhile since I did a comprehensive post showing my nail polish storage and collection so I thought it was about time.
I apologize in advance of the crappy pictures. It’s getting too hard to pull all the drawers out to take great, even shots, so this is a bit haphazard. But you will get the idea.
I am estimating my collection to be somewhere around 2,500-3,000 now and it grows nearly every single day!
Most of my containers were bought at either Target or Walmart and most of them have now been discontinued (boooo). The ones I most recently purchased at Target are the ones on top with the holes in the fronts. They seem to work as well as my older ones.
All of my nail polish is kept in the closet of my office now.
This is one side of the office closet which holds about 60% of my collection. Most of these drawers are stack-able, but some are different models so they don’t fit as easily. I put a layer of sticky drawer liner in-between them to help keep them in place (in earthquake country).
This is the other side of the office closet and it holds about 40% of my collection. These drawers were from Walmart and they no longer make them. I love them because they are really wide and hold a ton of polish. They stack perfectly together also.
My orange drawers aren’t too filled. I have one full drawer and the beginning’s of a second.
Red fills up three drawers fully and a new one starting, but they are smaller narrower ones.
Pink includes three full drawers and I have an extra on top for expansion. 🙂
Grey is just one large single drawer but it’s pretty full now!
Purple is the color I have the most of. I have four full drawers and a fifth started!
Nude is the color I have the least of. Not even half of a drawer. But I also have another extra one for expansion of whatever color I need.
Blue is pretty full with nearly 3 full drawers.
Green is the color I have the second most of. I have three full drawers and a fourth started.
Note how many BB Couture greens there are! I counted THIRTY-EIGHT!!!!
This is the drawer of un-swatched polish I have had for about 2 years now! I just never have time to get to them.
Under Mixed Metals I have gold, bronze, copper, etc. Everything metal-colored except silver basically. This drawer is really large and full!
White and yellow share a large drawer since I don’t have a lot of either.
White and yellow
Brown fills up almost entirely one large drawer. I may need to expand soon!
Silver and black also share a large drawer since I have fewer of them.
Silver and black
This is tagged glitters but really it’s a large drawer with some glittery top coats, special effects and all my base coats, top coats and nail treatments. It’s kind of a hodge-podge of things that don’t fit under a specific color.
Special top coats, base coats, nail treatments
And there you have it!
