My Nail Polish Collection - A Then vs. Now Comparison

Hey guys!

I have a fun post to share with you today!

I recently stumbled across a very old photo on my computer from when I first started to get into nail polish. At the time, I was using a spice rack to store my "collection" and I obviously must have thought at the time that it was a large enough collection to take a photo of. Boy, if only I'd known what my collection would look like just three years later!

So for a quick laugh, here's my then vs. now nail polish collection!

Be sure to click on the image to enlarge it!

I opened up some of the drawers just to give you a peak inside and to show that the majority of them are entirely full.

Oh and by the way, you can see that I no longer store my tampons and nail polish together hahaha. I'm guessing I just wanted to fill the empty space, which is a problem I certainly never have now! In fact, all of the melmers above are just about full, so I'm going to have to assemble my back-up melmers that I bought during a recent sale at Michael's!

Hope you guys enjoyed this quick post!

Do you have any before and after pictures of your collection? If you do, be sure to share them with me on the Nails by Kayla Shevonne Facebook page! I'd love to see them!


  1. Where did you get those dressers? They are awesome!!!

    1. Thanks! They're just plain white storage units from Michael's and I used animal print scrapbook paper to decorate them!

  2. Wow, that is quite a difference! LOL

  3. Haha, what an amazing difference!! I *love* your awesome, printed Melmers. For me, I was nearly overwhelmed when I had to get a 2nd basket to store my polishes in (ooh 2 baskets, how impressive! ;p), and now just a couple of months later I'm already thinking it may be time for Helmer #2. >_<

  4. wow! your collection definitely increased a lot!! it's surprising how quickly they multiply lol

  5. Kayla this is hilarious! Such a long way you have come, that is crazy how much your collection has grown! I remember when mine was in a shoebox... Now I'm pushing 800...

    Thanks for sharing this!

  6. Eek! That's great! Mine hasn't gotten quite that out of hand yet, but the little two-shelf cabinet I keep my polishes in is pretty much full... I'm contemplating adjusting it to four shelves and making pull-out drawers or baskets so I can see the polishes more easily.
    I love your Melmers, and I like your photo backdrop setup I see on top of one.

  7. oh my! Good thing you've kept it all so organized!

  8. Hahahahahahahaha! What a huge difference!

  9. It looks like you stash has multiplied! Great storage!

  10. I am scared to see my collection in about a year. Your collection has definitely grown.

  11. Wow that's incredible! haha every girl's dream
