Nail Polish Storage

    |

Over the years, I've acquired a ridiculous amount of nail polish. After experimenting with several methods of storage, from makeup bags to dresser drawers, I've found the best way to be something I had  all along in my closet: a shoebox. The wide opening allows you to quickly fish out the bottle you are looking for without too much fuss.

A suggestion from my friend K: Wrap your shoebox in a recycled paper bag from the grocery store, flipped inside out. Finish the look with hot-gluing a pretty ribbon to the lid.

That's actually a really great idea! I have so many empty shoe boxes that's just taking up space. Thanks for the tip!

This is a good idea. Much better than what I am doing, which is having my bottles all over the place.

I have more nail polish than I know what to do with! I think I'll try to cover a box.

Oh, I am jealous, I wish that I had a collection like this!

Nice collection! I use a shoe box as well, but mine is a kid shoe box since I don't have as many bottles as you. Have you ever thought of standing your nail polishes up? I heard it help keeps the nail polish.
