How I Store my Nail Polish

After having my nail polish rack for over a year, it is finally on the wall where it's supposed to be. When I was in college I bought it with every intention of having it put on the wall. Unfortunately, it ended up sitting against the wall since I had no tools, and I am far from the handy man.

My aunt came to visit about a week ago and she was tired of my room looking like I still was in high school, so she took it upon herself to take down my embarrassing high school memorabilia and hang up a few of my things I had from college, including my nail polish rack. Who knew it would be so easy?

I know this sounds crazy, but I feel so at ease having it up. It allows me to see everything I have and it allows my regular sized bottles to stand upright. I also love the fact that it doesn't take up room in a drawer and it serves as a wall decor piece. It makes me happy every time I walk into my room, since it's right by my door.
I organized it by brand, then by color.
Now for my mini polishes. I have accumulated a lot of these bad boys from gift sets. Originally, I tried storing them on my nail polish rack, but it got to the point where they all didn't fit on the rack. There was no way I was about to buy another rack to store my mini polishes, so I decided to improvise and use a candy dish that I was previously using to store cotton balls in my old apartment.
I love that the mini nail polishes look like colorful candy. My only cons about storing them this way is that I have to dump all the bottles out to see what I have and that the polishes aren't stored upright.

Seeing that I am a nail polish junkie, I don't know what I'll do when I outgrow my storage, but for now I'm content.

How do you ladies store your nail polish?

Love and desserts,

    1. Aww, thank you. I used to go on nail polish shopping sprees, but I've cooled it down a bit. haha :) I wish I could do nail art, but I'm not that fancy. I just usually stick to one color or an accent nail. I would like to try some nail art pens though! :)

      Thanks for stopping by!

    1. Thank you so much! :) I'm the same way with my makeup. It's literally all over the place. The only reason my nail polish is organized is because of that rack. It was sitting in a huge bag for the longest time! haha I thought the candy dish would be a good place to hold the mini ones since I had no where else to hold them. haha and yes, you spotted correctly! I love the Ciate minis. They are such good polishes. Thanks for visiting and thank you for following! I'm now following you as well! :)
