My Collection Part 1 (Lots of pics!)

Hey everyone! I know this is late, and I'm sorry. I'm not going to give excuses, I'm just jumping right into it. This is the first part of my five part series on my collection! Each part will be a drawer in my helmer. This excludes my top drawer which is accessories and such. It is extremely unorganized at the moment. Maybe by the end of the series it will be organized and ready for it's blog debut. My collection contains 277 nail polishes! Which is about 100 more than I thought I had! This is not including stripe art polishes. This collection has only been growing for about a year now and I am amazed at how many I have! Wow!

We will start with drawer 2 which contains OPI, Sephora by OPI, Nicole by OPI and Essie. Let's start with a drawer picture:
Oops, my Nic Stick rolled out of the shot! 

OPI definitely hogs the drawer with 36 full sized bottles and 7 minis! Let's check out swatches for each one! I have two nail wheels completely filled up. All swatches are 3 coats unless stated otherwise. Here's a full look at OPI Wheel 1:

  1. You sound like me - it's been *almost* a year and I have just about the same amount of polish in my Helmer. Addiction, I tell ya. Addiction!

  2. Haha I almost titled the post "Addiction!" I never thought I would need a Helmer, and then I had to have it and it's filling up! Crazy!
