If you’re a nail polish freak like me, your collection is always growing, maybe even to massive proportions. Even if you have every single shade that has ever existed—what does it matter if you can’t find the color you’re looking for among the chaos?
The mere thought of trying to organize the avalanche of bottles all over your floor or in your vanity drawer might seem overwhelming, but have no fear! We have five ideas for making your beloved collection more user-friendly, so you can have your favorite Cult Nails Lacquer right there and ready at a moment’s notice.
Salon Wall Rack
You know those handy clear acrylic polish racks you see at professional nail salons? You can buy them on Amazon. Some might think such a solution is out of place in a humble abode, but not me! This is how I organize my personal mani collection. I like wall-mounted racks because they don’t take up floor space, or much space at all. They’re easy to assemble, and it’s fun to pretend like you have your own personal in-house spa! Maybe next I’ll get one of those Nagel-esque decals on my window.
A two or three-tiered dessert tray is a cute, distinctive way to display your polishes. You can find these at any store that sells kitchen goods, on Amazon, and you might also be able to score one at a garage sale or a thrift store. We highly encourage customizing a second-hand tray with spray paint, glitter(!), or decoupage.
Vintage Train Case
If you prefer your polishes to stay out of the way, a vintage train case can be a fun option. Thrift stores and flea markets are both great sources, and you can also find them on Etsy. And bonus: your collection will be instantly portable!
