Welcome to another post of Amor de Lacquer….the series all about nail polish and nail care! Send me your requests, suggestions and ideas to Brittany@ClumpsOfMascara.com.
Remember HERE where I showed you all my terrible nail polish storage? I thought and I thought and I wrecked my brain trying to think of a neat polish storage solution. I didn’t want anything that took up too much space.
Here’s the thing about me….I don’t like clutter. And I don’t like owning a lot of anything. Books are the only exception. And while I love my nail polish collection, I didn’t want it to keep growing and eventually push me out of my own closet.
I remembered having the SAME issue when I was in college and living in dorms. For my freshman and sophomore years I had to share itty bitty closet spaces with my roommates.
I don’t know how I did it but it really wasn’t that bad. I ran to Ikea (the best store in the WORLD…after Sephora….and Office Depot….and Best Buy….and Whole Foods) and found the exact same little closet organizer that I used in undergrad.
I had one in the dorms and used it to store my shirts, shoes and belts. It was perfect because everything was confined to just THAT one spot. It also works best for polishes. Here’s how it looks in the closet.
After I finished organizing everything, I realized that I still had 3 remaining cubby holes (I love saying that…it reminds me of kindergarten. HA!) left. I found uses for them!
The bases, topcoats, nail/cuticle treatment department
The Design Corner…can’t find my Konad scraper. 🙁
Or….I’ll just buy another closet organizer. But hopefully it won’t get to that point.
I don’t think.
Anyone find an ideal way to store polishes?
