How I Store My Polish

Tonight I FINALLY am going to talk about how I store my polish, after saying I would on my Facebook page for the past several days. Sorry for making you guys wait, but now wait no longer.

Usually, I know polish collectors and hoarders love to store there polish one of three ways: shoe box/similar size box, Helmers from Ikea or similar cabinet storage from Ikea, or nail polish table top or wall racks. I use NONE of these. What I use to hold all of my polish, is quite unique.

At first, I wanted to use nail polish racks, and I was all ready and planned to make one myself out of foam board, as I had seen videos on Youtube showing how to make your own. This didn't work out though. My mom at first didn't want me to make one, and also, when we went to look at the foam board in stores like Walmart and local stores, they were too expensive. Also, my room has popcorn walls, and things have a hard time sticking to the wall, so I gave up that idea.

My mom goes to Ross a lot, and she saw something else I could try to use to store my polish. The thing she found, is really not made for polish at all. It's a hanging, over the door jewelry organizer, with pockets that can hold around 2 big size polishes each or 3-4 small polishes.

To store my nail polish in these jewelry oragnizers, I use this over my door:

Ignore the poster of Betty Boop under the over the door hanger. I have a door hanger with three parts, which can hold three jewelry organizers.

Here is one of my jewelry "nail polish" holders on the racks, so you are able to see exactly what they look like:

Sorry for the big size, it's so that you guys can really see what it looks like. Each organizer has five pockets in each row except for the last row that has three huge pockets. The organizer has two sides, with seven rows on each side.

Here is how I store my polish in these jewelry orgnaizers, this one is full on both sides, although you can only see the front of it:

Lastly, here is a picture of both of my organizers full of polish. As you can see, I only around half filled the front side of my second organizer:


Well, this is how I have chosen to store my polish. It's not any of the traditional methods, but this is what works for me and I like that it's unique.

So, what I want to know is, what are all of you all's polish storage methods, what do you think of mine, and if anyone else out there stores polish the same way that I do. Leave me some comments to let me know all about your polish storage!

Well, that's it for now. Talk to you guys later!
