Labeled Nail Polish Storage!

I think I have gone a bit crazy with the labeling, this time I have managed to label my entire nail polish collection and I'm in LOVE!


You see I have a lot of nail polish and can never find what I am looking for. I hate rummaging through boxes, drawers and bags!


Now I don't have to rummage through anything, I can see everything at a glance!! I used plain white sticky labels, cut them up, swatched the nail polish shade and stuck it on top of the lid. Voila! I saw this idea somewhere, I think it was on Pinterest but didn't pin it so can't find the link, luckily I registered it in my brain somewhere and was able to process it last night.


So happy I can finally store my nail polishes upright instead of sideways or upside down! :) In case you were wondering, this box lives under my bed.


Such a pretty sight!


What do you think of this idea and how do you store your nail polish?

What a great idea! I never liked storing my nail polishes in a drawer or box because you cant see the colors well but this idea is genius!! Awesome post!

Becky said...

Love this! I don't have as many as you but keep mine in a case, I have swatches on nail wheels and a list of the shades.

Hola Bambi said...

love it, great ideas xx

Leanne Marie said...

This is a fab idea. I own way too many nail polishes, I know it would take me a while to complete!

Yinka said...

Cool idea, but I don't have the patience to do that AND my polishes lie on their side, so it wouldn't work for me.

Shadowy Lady said...

great idea Mushine.

I have 200+ bottles of nailpolish (i know, n/p obsessed) and mine are stored upright and based on season like fall/winter and spring/summer. But I think I'm gonna take a page out of your book and also add a swatch on the n/p cap

Genius idea. I don't own enough polishes, but it's great for people who do.

Rosalind Walker said...

Love this, it looks great and is practical too :) I store most of my nail varnishes in a big glass vase, looks pretty funky on my shelf, can see the colours really easily but it's a bit of a pain when the one I want is at the very bottom! x

Amanda Cheyenne said...

I made my own wall hanging wooden nail polish rack that works wonderfully and was so easy to make. It has turned my nail polish into art work and also it's easy enough to see all the colors I have!

Amanda said...

If I could be bothered, i would so do this! Hahaha

*Peonies and lilies* said...

That is such a good idea! I'm currently storing all my nail varnishes in a mini set of drawers, but it's bursting at the seams, so might try your way and put my old Glossybox boxes to good use x

Ida said...

I love it! Will copy this organization idea, if you don't mind. :)

Miss-J said...

great idea,i really have to organize my own collection soon!

Schnelle said...

Great idea! I store all of my polish in a drawer in my vanity so I can see most of the colors when I open the drawer but this is so smart!

Jen said...

Great idea. I'll have to do this when my collection gets a little bigger! xx

Great storage ideea.
I was cleaning up my closet these days, and your storage ideeas are quite amaizing. Unfortunatly for me I still have too much, for so little space...
I promise my self i'll do a similar thing with the shoe boxes - POLAROID project.
Great inspiration. Thanks for all the back ones too.:)
