Nail Polish Collection - Reorganization Complete!

Hey guys!

So as I said in this post, I was completely out of space to store my ever expanding nail polish collection and the solution I came up with was Michael's version of the Ikea Helmer. I got 3 of those and stacked them on top of one another in the hopes that I would be able to fit ALL of my nail polish in them.

Remember, this is what I started out with:



Did it work? Was I able to fit all of that polish into 3 Melmers?
See for yourself!



It did work! And I was able to fit all of my polish into the Melmers!

Here's my new setup:



As you can see, I still had to keep one of the plastic storage units to hold all of my makeup but I knew that was going to be the case. However now that I know just how much I like the Melmers, I'm thinking about getting a couple more and using them to store my makeup as well.

Also, you'll notice that I have a lot of extra space now (one whole shelf behind my mirror is empty and there's a large open space next to the Melmers), so if/when I need to continue expanding, I have plenty of space to do so!

And here's a closeup of the 3 Melmers:



If you guys are interested in a post that shows everything inside the drawers, let me know in the comments. I don't want to seem like I'm bragging so I won't do that post unless you all want it.

Oh and by the way, that's not a roll of toilet paper in that top cubby, haha, those are my lint free polish remover squares. That roll has I think 1000 squares on it, it was pretty cheap, and they're really great for removing polish. I'm actually thinking about getting a toilet paper holder to attach to the inside of the cubby and attach these on it just like you would a roll of toilet paper.

Anyways, I hope you guys like my reorganization project and if you want to see a more detailed collection post, please let me know in the comments.

  17. Those little melmers end up holding a lot, don't they? I really like the Michael's storage options, I want some for my makeup as well. They're awesome! I'm going to echo everyone else and say I'd like to see your collection :) It looks great!

  19. yes:) I agree with everyone who says take pictures of the drawers.

    And you definitely gave me ideas on how to fix my nail polish set up. My beau is mad that my nail polish is taking up most of the shelves in the fridge.

  23. ...I so need a setup like that!

  24. JC!: Yup, those are all of my MAC palettes. And tt's actually a DVD holder! They're super cheap and you can get them at places like Wal-Mart and some dollar stores.

    jEniB: Yup, all nail polish! There's some space left in a few of the drawers for expansion purposes but they've all got polish in them.

    mini diva: In the fridge!?

    tinko :): I got it at a professional supply store but I imagine that Sally's might sell something similar.


    And I'll definitely get a full collection post up for you guys soon. I'm so happy that so many of you want to see it!

  26. Wow huge collection. I like seeing how others set up their storage. I have one Helmer and it's not even full with polish. I also use the lint free "toilet paper" haha it's xlnt. Really something to try. I separated it into 2 rolls.
