New Helmer: Before & After

I finally got my new Helmer this week. I had outgrown my first one by about 100 polishes.

My old setup (yes, my 'light box' is merely a piece of craft paper taped to the wall and a lamp! lol.)


You can see my desk shelves were getting cluttered with nail art things, lotions, and extra stuff.


And my 'overflow' basket had been completely overflown! lol.


I moved everything to the other side of the room for better light and more room, so this is my new set up:


The pretty boxes to the right hold all my packing and shipping supplies for swapping and such. My boyfriend picked them out all by himself. lol. Also, don't mind the belts to the left. This spare room is also used as my 'closet'. Men have a 'man cave', well this is my girl cave! LOL! I can do a tour video at some point if it is something that you ladies are interested in.


And pics of all the drawers, because what is a stash post without the goods!! lol!!







Let me know if you are interested in seeing anything in more detail or my closet/polish room.

  1. I find stash pictures so cool - I really should do a lightbox set up like yours. Do you use white light spectrum bulbs? A video would be fun to watch!

    1. I like stash pictures, too, which is why I try to post them once I get a big change since my last.

      I use daylight bulbs. Not sure the difference between them and white light spectrum bulbs. The setup works really well for me, and with both the lamps shining down, I don't get any shadows.

    1. Me, too! China Glaze is really easy for me to get and when Sally's has them on clearance, I always grab all the shades that are marked down! lol. Polish addict problems!

  5. I love nail polish area pictures. What do you keep on the two shelves of your desk?

    1. On the first shelf I keep acetone, lotion, and thinner. Behind that is a little basket where I keep my camera stuff like charger and cords. Then on the second shelf, I have another basket where I keep things like makeup sponges, cotton balls, reinforcement stickers...just random nail things that aren't really nail supplies, I guess. lol.
