Irregular shaped bottles of varying sizes, shades and styles – nail polish.
You can’t stack ’em, slot ’em together and there’s only one way up for them! No wonder they give me a headache.
I have around 208 bottles that were literally overflowing their allotted space in the stackable drawers I’d bought from Asda. It was time for them to move house…
Into a brand new Ikea Helmer!
Oh, Ikea Helmer… you are the stuff of makeup-lover’s dreams. Perfectly sized, you’re small enough to be considered compact yet spacious enough to hold our treasures within your functional (but not too officey) exterior!
The Helmers comes in white, red or silver and are priced at just over £20 each. I own two white Helmers and they hold SO much crap it’s astounding.
If I’m completely honest though, I lust after an Alex:
But at over £80 a-piece, the price difference is hard to justify.
Here’s a quick phone snap of my polishes all snug and comfy in their new home. Look how perfect they are, all divided by colour and standing to attention!
But my favouritest thing about their new home? It means I now have plenty of space for more!
How do you store your nail polish – do you own a Helmer?
