In the last couple of years I seem to have acquired a rather large amount of nail polish - it's a slight obsession of mine! - and the storage of it has always been a struggle.
I don't like my nail polish to be strewn everywhere, it makes me feel guilty at how many I own!, so I've been trying to find a way to store them all that keeps them all together and organised whilst still being accessible.
And I think I've finally cracked it!
Here's how I deal with my nail polish obsession - by keeping them all organised, pretty and most importantly on display - that way I can just about pass them off as room decor and justify my excessive purchasing!
I store my polished on my 'beauty shelf' - in a variety of different vessels but all are clear and see through!
I have three main ways to store my polishes - acrylic 3-drawer stack-able sets (these are dangerous because I can just keep buying more when my collection can expands!), jars (my mason jar obsession has evolved!) and old candle jars (this is arguably my best idea yet - it has a dual justification purpose, my love for nail polish and candles!)
I like to store my polishes by brand - so in my collection I have my Ciate, China Glaze, Barry M, Jack Wills & OPI (Ma has our Essie and Nails Inc.!)
With my Ciate and Barry M I like to keep them in rainbow order - I think it looks the prettiest that way!
As for my JW polishes - I have to be content with keeping them in size order, my mini's in one drawer and full size ones in another.
The last drawer is a miscellaneous drawer - but it is the beginnings of my Butter LONDON collection!
I use jars for my OPI collection (it pains me that they refuse to fit in these drawers - I might have to get some of the deeper acrylic drawers!) and another for my nail treatments - base coats, top coats, cuticle oil/cream
My limited China Glaze collection fit perfectly in this old Bath and Bodyworks jar - luckily this is limiting me (for the moment) from expanding my collection!
Finally, I found a use for one of my mason jar shot glasses (aren't they just the cutest?!) - to store my nail files and cuticle sticks!
So that's that - how I deal with my nail polish obsession is to store it prettily and functionally!
