How Do You Store Your Nail Polish?

It’s amazing how many interesting ideas you can come up with when you need to find a solution for stuff like storing your nail polish. It should be simple: just put it all in a box and you’re done. But it’s not exactly like that. If you don’t believe, just take a look at the following examples:

Glass Bowl.

Let’s start with something very simple. All you need is a glass bowl. Just put all your nail polish inside the bowl and mix them up nicely. They won’t stay upright but this is a solution you choose more for the looks. Display the bowl on your dresser or somewhere else and you’ll also have a nice and colorful focal point.{found on likeadime}.

Wood rack.

Wall display

If you prefer something a little more organized, you could try finding a shelf or two. These ones are perfect because they are small and perfect for storing nail polish. If you’re not happy with the color, you can spray paint them and give them a more cheerful look.{found on site thismomsgonnasnap}.

Tiny wall shelf.

These tiny shelves are also nice. Open shelves are a little less secure and safe so it is possible for you to accidentally cause your nail polish to drop and break. Still, it’s a nice way in which you can display it. If you have a large collection, organize it according to color or dimensions.{found on reksblogja}.

Box craft.


If you’d rather save space, a show box would work as well. In this case, it’s not the box that interests us but those tiny labels. You can paint small white labels with each color of nail polish and stick them to the tops of the bottles. This way you’ll always know which you to grab.{found on thebeautydepartment}.


Polish rolls

Here’s another unusual way in which you can store your nail polish: in rolls. These rolls are made from faux leather and they come in a variety of colors so you can also personalize them as you want. Each roll fits 14 nail polishes. If you have more than 14 then you can organize them by color and use multiple rolls.{found on bubblegarm}.

What’s most important when storing nail polish is to be able to see the colors so you don’t have to take them one by one until you find the one you actually need. So a glass container would be a nice idea. Choose one with an interesting shape so it can also become a decoration.{found on site}.
