Recently my nail polish drawer need to be tidied up a little bit, So I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to show how I store my nail polish.
Here is the before:
and the after:
My nail polish lives in the bottom drawer of my jewelry armoire (which I will be giving an updated look on soon). I have two old-Birchbox boxes holding all my nail polish in place which has proved very effective so far. I like that the boxes are protecting the bottom of the armoire drawer from any harmful chemicals the nail polish has.
In the left Birchbox you can see my nail polishes lined up neatly. I started with Essie, then transitioned into Sally Hansen Crackle, followed by Revlon, then Sally Hansen. In the second box I have my OPI nail polishes, followed by my small collections- Rimmel, Color Club, Ruffian, Disney, and then my top coat and base coat. I also have two small nail polish removers in this box. On the right hand side of the boxes I hold my small nail dryer and a container of cotton pads. You can see way back there behind the boxes, I lay all my nail files, nail clippers, and any other small nail tools I might need at any given point.
I don't have a HUGE nail polish collection, but I definitely have quite a bit and I enjoy doing my nails on a regular basis so it's important for me to have a place to store my nail polish. I know nail polish is a difficult thing to store, since you want to keep it out of the sunlight so it won't change color, so I think keeping it in a jewelry armoire drawer is the perfect solution!
How do you store your nail polish?
I know someone will probably ask, but as of right now I have 44 nail polishes, not including base or top coat, which is a little excessive, but I love to paint my nails =)
