New Year - New Storage

Well, not NEW storage, but rearranged storage. 

I keep my polishes in some Ikea Benno CD towers. I started with one, and then expanded to two. Recently, my stash has grown (I've got about 400 bottles now) and I was starting to struggle to find things.  

This were my shelves this morning.  I tidied up a big shelf on one of my other sets of shelves (I have two other big sets of Billy shelves and one other Benno) to make space so that I could move these CDs over and free up the mini shelves here for polish. 

I moved my multicoloured glitters across and split them from one compartment to two, and then moved my golds and silvers across. 

This is now the top of my tall shelves. The very top is topcoats and bases, and a couple of Seche Vite kits. Then the blacks, which are still one compartment, the browns, which are now two, the oranges 3 (instead of 2)...

the reds are 4 (instead of 2), and the pink, purple and blue get an extra compartment each. 
The poor yellows don't even get their own compartment! I only have 4, and one of them is a mini.

I'm pretty happy with this for now. I'd love to have my polishes on a wall somewhere, so that they're all lined up and all visible, but I don't have that kind of space! So for now, this is pretty and tidy. 


  1. Look at all the blues! Looks great.

    1. It does make me smile, being able to see them every day. They get all sparkly when the sun shines.

  3. Happy New Year :-D

    Lol I do love it. Bennos are the best thing ever but I think they've discontinued them? I was looking for them for a friend and couldn't find them in Ikea anymore??!!

    Nicely organised. I've got mine sorted by brand - I'm a bit obsessive that way ;-)

    1. OH NOES! I had a very upset minute there, poor discontinued Bennos! However, it would appear that they actually have something very similar with a different name now.

      Look up GNEDBY

  4. Ooooh! Shiny! I wish I could say more, but shiny!

  5. Pretty! My polishes are all stored in Helmer draws but I wish I had them out so I could admire them! I want to get some nice shelves eventually :)

    1. Thanks! Yes, I used to have mine hidden away in a box, but I much prefer having them out to look at!
