Well, I don't! But when Cammi showed us her Helmers and Antoniuses, I got tempted to throw together an updated stash post. Then Sminkan posted her stash, and I just couldn't resist doing it.
Why really? Does anyone care? Yeah, I thought so. You're just as curious as I am. We just love seeing each others stashes. And our own. Not to brag, but to be amazed at how much shit we really do own. Am I right?
Here's my stash as of last week.
The little stash corner in the closet looks pretty much the same... Two Helmers, a lot of shit on top.
The white plastic box is full of old makeup actually. It shouldn't be in this spot, but I just haven't figured out where else to put it. On top of it, the Nubar Moodies collection (still missing a few), the OPI Pawlish collection, and a neat Claire's mixables polish- red and green with holographic glitter. In the opposite corner of the box, a ManGlaze Franken Jugg with my own creation Scarlet Fever. Still to be shown to you, dear friends. Apart from this: some tools, a bunch of polishes I picked out for even more ombre possibilities, some stacks of wheels and a few sets of press-ons I got for reviewing purposes. If Cammi is wide awake she can spot a couple of bottles, hidden somewhere, that she's about to inherit. And in the back OPI Go Goth mini set. Since this photo was taken, this set got company from the two new ones by Color Club.
Top drawer of left Helmer. I know this is a mess. Definitely need Antonius in here! To the left all my treatments, base and top coats. In the back, miscellaneous shit, such as nail art items I never use, a trillion free manicure sets, nail brushes and so on so forth.
Second drawer. Even more embarassing. The polishes thrown in at the front are swap items and such, bottles I do not care enough about to keep. Shoe box contains frankens. Plastic box in the back contains failed frankens. No, you don't get to see those.
Third drawer. Okay, here goes. First drawer of untrieds. Round bottles. OPI, China Glaze, a few Nubar and equally few BB Couture.
Fourth drawer. Untried square bottles. Mostly. Misa, Zoya, Color Club, NYX Girls, Essie, Depend and LA Girl.
Fifth drawer. Untrieds by brands that refuse to keep their bottles uniform. Yes, I'm a freak and sorted them out. H&M, Wet'n'Wild, Claire's, Sally Hansen.
Bottom drawer. Miscellaneous untrieds. Brands I have only a few of. This drawer makes me realize just how many different brands there are...
Right Helmer, the one that contains used polishes. Top drawer. Contains China Glaze.
Second drawer. OPI. Full OPI drawer. Since this photo was taken it has only become worse. There are bottles thrown in everywhere.
Third drawer. Round bottles, miscellaneous brands. Nfu Oh, BB Couture, Nubar, Orly, a few Mavala, and the not very round, but not square either, LA Girl.
Fourth drawer. Square bottles. I actually had to break this content down not long ago, because the drawer got full. Now there are Misa, Zoya, Essie, Barielle, Color Club and Depend in here.
Fifth drawer. The misc one. Contains polishes by brands that I own five or less bottles from. I know, I have sick criteria. When I have more than five polishes from a particular brand, they get to go live in either the drawer of round bottled brands, or the square bottle brands drawer. They all really strive to get there.
Bottom drawer. The other sick drawer where the unconsistent brands end up. Therefore we here find NYX and NYX Girls, Essence, H&M, Claire's and Sally Hansen.
How sick is that? I have to go buy a third Helmer.
