How To Beautifully Store Your Nail Polishes

image So as you can see my nail polish collection has gotten a little out of hand and my excuse is that by NOT having proper storage to house all my little darlings, I end up purchasing the same or similar colors all the time. My mission was to find a pretty way to store them so I could access them easily and see what shades I had too much or not enough of (if I'm honest, even the shades I don't like I have too many). Plus I had this huge blank space in my new bathroom that was just perfect for my vision.

After hours searching on etsy.com I finally came across the vendor I wanted to order from however I didn't see any unit capable of holding 200+ polishes. I reached out to Dan & Cara at Fox Claws about possibly custom making a system for me. To my surprise I was replied to almost immediately with a hopeful answer. Long story short Dan built a mock up for me to approve and once I gave the ok, the work began! It's been a month since I placed my order and when the shelves arrived today I knew what tonight's project was going to be.

Each was carefully wrapped with painted screws included so all I needed was a pencil, level and a screw driver. image

All the shelves took me less than 5 min to hang but nearly an hour to organize. image Fox Claws promised the shelves would hold 200 polishes and I nearly panicked when I counted a total of 266. Luckily they all fit but there is not one space for a new shade unless I get rid of a few to make room - weep.

I absolutely LOVE how it turned out and I would highly recommend Fox Claws because of their fantastic customer service and impeccable craftsmanship. There isn't another vendor on Etsy offering this quality at a reasonable price and let's be real... In the long run spending $100 to store my polishes efficiently will likely prevent me from future overspending on shades that I don't need! I consider it a act of frugalness on my part frankly.
