Twinsie Tuesday - My Nail Polish Collection

Hi fellow nail polish lovers!!

Today, we have a different type of post to share for Twinsie Tuesday.  We're sharing our nail polish collections.  I'm really excited to see everyone's post.  I have lots of pics, so let's get to it!

First up, I have two small baskets that I keep at my bedside.  These are polishes I plan to wear "soon."

When I was taking pictures of these two baskets, it reminded me of a meme Lakeisha shared a while back that her hubby created.

I still laugh whenever I see this meme!  Sometimes I feel bad for these polishes.  I'm always moving them around, picking them up, saying that I will finally wear them and then a new polish comes (or polishes for review).  At least they're ahead of all the others the I have in my untrieds.

Next are two wall racks I have in my room.  These are some of my oldest polishes.

In my room, I also have some minis and glitters that I keep on my dresser.

The polishes in my room are the ones I typically go to for nail art or my pedicures.

I also have another wall rack that's not in my room that I received from Noly who creates personalized nail polish racks on easy.  Get 35% off today using the code MARIJO35.

This rack holds a bunch of indies as you can see ;0).

In that same room, I also have three helmers.

Now, I have to say that these are NOT all full.  I recently took out all of my untrieds (more on that later).
The five plastic containers and the small white basket hold untried polishes.  I got those from Target.

Here's a close up of how I label my helmers.  They're sorted by brand.  Below, I opened a few drawers as proof that they're not full ;0).

In addition to the plastic containers with my untrieds and my two baskets near my bedside, I also have two shoe boxes and a large basket with my untrieds.

Why would you have your untrieds in a basket and shoe boxes, you ask?  Well, I recently created a stash list at the urging of Lakeisha (a very long process, might I add) and I realized I had a serious problem.  Yes, I only just realized it!  I kept buying polish faster than I could wear them.  So, as a reminder that I need not buy anymore, I leave them out and in my face.  Trust me, even if I see something I really like, I don't even have the urge to spend because I just think of all of these polishes I have to get through.

As a result of going through my stash to create a list, I discovered a few duplicates (life of a polish addict).  So I figured, now would be a better time than any to do a little giveaway.

Zoya Kieko, China Glaze Angel Wings, Sinful Colors Rise & Shine and Liquid Glam Lacquer  June Bug
You can win these four polishes by guessing how many polishes you think I have in my stash (I actually know the number now ;0) ).  So, the closest to the correct number without going over wins!  Just leave your guess in the comments.  Deadline to enter is Tuesday, February 25, 2014 at 9:00am EST.

Hope you guys enjoyed this post!  How do you organize your stash?

  1. Haha! I have those same boxes from Target and they hold my stash!

  2. That meme is hilarious and completely accurate! Haha!

  3. Wow, that's an amazing collection!

  4. Dang! I think I just drooled all over my keyboard! I love stash pics. :)

  5. Lol at the polishes you keep by the bed! My hubby wouldn't go for that at all. Now that your list is all done, I should do mine. ;) I'm going to guess that you have 1861 polishes.

  6. What a great collection! These posts are so fun to see!

  7. Your stash is so fun!! I would love to come over and play one day ;)

  8. *helmers and racks. I really really want wall racks like that *i hit publish too soon on my last comment lol*

  9. What an impressing stash! Hehe, my guess is 1700pcs :)

  10. Love that meme!!! lololol! Your crazy collection is amazing Marisa!!!

  11. I thought about doing the same with my unused dupes, but decided to just add them to the "swaps" drawer instead. My guess is 1,755!

  12. Oh my!! Love this edition of Twinsie Tuesday. I'm snooping around everyone's stash today!

  13. I'm going to guess 638. :]

    Stephanie S.

  14. So much polish!!! I love that you have racks and drawers and I am still laughing at Lakeisha's meme as well! LOL.

  15. I love to see posts like that!!
    My polishes are on a box....I don't have a helmer but it's so nice to organize it.
    I think you have 850 polishes.

  16. Wow polishes galore! Love how your collection looks! lol that meme is the best!
    hmmm I'm going to guess 1500 :D

  17. Hmm I'm going to guess 1,340 :)
    This includes your untrieds, right?

  18. 2500 is my guess :) I separated out all my untried/unblogged about polishes into separate helmer drawers... it definitely does help to reduce the temptation to buy more polish... but I'm really into texture polishes now... and I currently only have 3... so those are still really hard to resist because I can't tell myself I already have something similar lol

  19. Wow! now that is a nail polish collection!

  20. 1,200 polishes!
    I can't believe how many you have :O

  21. WOW! You have a heck of a lot of polish girl!

  22. I'm gonna say 1515 even though I feel like it's more than that

  23. I store a lot of mine in swiveling countertop spice racks (the brand is Swivel Store) in my closet and in my armoire. The rest are in boxes from beauty subscriptions (Birchbox, Glossybox) in my closet and in my armoire. I keep my Trieds in the closet and my Untrieds in the armoire. I would eventually like all of them to be in the racks because they don't take up much space and don't overwhelm my husband with the visual of hundreds of polishes, but I can swivel them out easily to make a selection.

    1. That's a really good idea. I like that you can move them around easily.


I love hearing from you all. So feel free to leave a comment :0). I'll read each and every one! Comments with links will be deleted!
