Nail Polish Rolls..

Yes rolls! A new way to store my nail polishes.



I stored my nail polish like THIS before which was working great apart from the fact that I couldn't see all of my nail polishes at a glance, and now I have rolls, 3 rolls from Roo. I was actually sent these for consideration for review, but as soon as I saw 'storage' in the sentence I had to try them out being the organisational freak that I am.



The rolls are made from faux leather and come in a variety of colours. Each roll fits 14 nail polishes. If 14 is as far as your collection stretches then great, but I have much more. I decided to organise mine by colour. Storing them by brand would have been a good idea too, but I own too many different ones.


The compartments are made up of elastic and mesh. I fit every brand of nail polish apart from the chunky square Estee Lauder ones. The fastening for the roll is made from velcro making it quick and easy to use. The roll itself is durable and practical to use, I know that I will have these for a long time.


The colours I picked were the black, pink and zebra print.


Overall I love the practicality of these, if I want to paint my nails pink, I just grab the pink roll and I have all of my variations. I do wish there was a larger version though, that fit say 5 rows of 10 polishes, this way it would be magical in my opinion to see 50 different nail polishes all spread out without making a mess! :) I also wish it looked a bit prettier from the outside, maybe something floral... maybe I should do a DIY project, hmmm. However 1 roll that fits 14 is fantastic for travelling!



The Roo rolls are available HERE for £14.99 each or any 3 for £30.

How do you like the 'Roll' idea for storing your nail polishes?

Disclaimer: The rolls were sent for consideration for review, I was not paid to write this post and I am not affiliated with the brand. Honest opinion as always!

I love this idea for storing polishes. I may have to invest! At the moment I have them in boxes like how you used to store yours, but like you said, I can't see what I've got and end up having to pick them up one by one to find the one I want! :) x

Charlie said...

I'm planning to buy these for my mobile nails business. I never carry more than 25 polish with me so a couple of these would be perfect.

Kerrymarie said...

What a fab idea, mine are currently in a Nails Inc mini suitcase but I love the fact that you can see all the colours when they're in those rolls.

thats interesting n the packaging is cute, but im concerned it takes up too much space when u have more than one... u can type in 60bottle or 90bottle acrylic storage for nail polishes which is what i use in the salon, alot more durable and stores more if ur a nail polish freak like me lol.

Aysh said...

I'm not into nail polishes, but these are pretty awesome.

Annette said...

I love the idea. So handy. Especially for travelling. At the moment my nail polishes are neatly stacked in coloured order on my shelf.

That's a great idea but you're the right, the designs aren't the nicest. The black one is definitely the most appealing to me. I'm running out of space for my polishes so I might invest in one of these soon.

Everyone should paint their nails. Add a bit of colour to your life, why not?

I love this!! xx

Katherine_ox said...

Oooh! I love these rolls! I store all of my nail varnish in a big bulky tub under my bed so I never have them there to remind me to paint my nails!
Where can I get one of these from? :)

This is such a great idea! I've been thinking of different ways to store nail varnish and this is something i hadn't considered. Love it! :) xx

Ellie said...

I really like this idea, but I'd have to stetch to about five rolls! I can't decide if this would be more helpful than my current storage of a tray that perfectly fits all of my polishes standing up?xxx

These nail varnish rolls are a great idea.

I am going to recommend them to many people.

Check out my look at Shellac nail varnish.

Great Idea

I would never even THINK of a roll to organize my nail polish, but this makes a lot of sense after seeing it! I store mine in boxes...but not upside down (I worry that they'd spill or something), so sometimes I overlook favorite colors or forget about things. I think this is a great idea :) x

Sprinkleofglitter said...

Ooooooooo I love your rainbow of polishes, it almost looks arty :) xxxx

Catanya said...

It is a good storage solution, sweety!! I am not sure if I like it, though... I store them in a little shelf and they look good!!
