Hey, everyone! So, it’s been a few months since my last organization post and I’ve changed a few things/obtained just a few (lies) more polishes so I wanted to do an updated post! So, the photo above shows the area of my room that I keep all my blogging and polish-related stuff confined to! Let’s take a closer look at everything.
Here are my melmers where I store most of the polish itself (I’ll show you inside later!). I recently added these Sailor Moon stickers to them! I like having my lightbox set up on top because it’s always easily available, I don’t have to go grab it & clear off a spot on the table, it’s just ready for me.
I keep that skull nail file on top of my melmer because it’s so cute! Shelby Lou Nails sent it to me. <3
I keep a lot of my nail stuff in these little plastic organizers. Nail art brushes, glitter, striping tape, manicure tools, stamping plates, etc. Here’s a peek into a couple of the drawers:
In the black ipsy bag I keep my swatch wheels & business cards I’ve received from indies. The larger black bag holds all of my base & top coats:
This is where I store my makeup palettes, brushes, brush cleaner, etc.
Here I have a small portion of my candle collection (you guys don’t want to see how bad it is…almost as bad as the polish collection!), the stuff I use to keep my cuticles moisturized and a little bin that holds prizes for giveaways I’m currently participating in or that are upcoming so I can keep track of them!
Under the desk I have another organizer which holds stuff in larger containers like my acetone, cuticle remover, etc.
This part I’m not so pleased with! I need to find another cute jar of some sorts to hold my swatch sticks, I stuff them in these two but there are too many to fit!! Speaking of swatch sticks:
Now it’s time to peek inside the melmers!
This top drawer holds OPI & China Glaze.
The next drawer holds indies & indie minis. I have the small white trays separated into Indigo Bananas minis & other indie minis.
This drawer holds Zoya, commercial minis, ORLY, Essie, Layla, NARS, Sally Hansen and a few other random polishes.
This last polish drawer holds mostly drugstore. After that it’s two makeup drawers:
And that’s it, folks! I have tried to destash a couple times recently, but it just keeps creeping back up (280 at the time of this post). Soon I will need another Melmer, or I may just bite the bullet and pay IKEA shipping for a Helmer. Hopefully you guys enjoyed the post, I always like seeing other bloggers and/or makers behind the scenes posts. 🙂
