6 nail polish storage ideas to copy
Raise your hand if you’re a nail polish hoarder!
When it comes to nail polish it can be so easy for our collections to get out of hand. We need to be prepared with a colour to match each season, every occasion, and any mood! But while we love having an overflowing nail polish collection, we hate how annoying they can be to store.
From shelving units to zip up totes, we’ve tried it all when it come to nail polish storage!
Here are our top six nail polish storage options to help you organise your favourite shades.

Spice rack or nail polish holder? It’s up to you! Look for a spice rack with a gap in the design so you can see the colours of your polish bottles. Or simply swatch a bit of polish on a removable sticker and pop it above each bottle to make your decision quicker and easier.
This one requires a little bit of craft, but the results are worth it. All you need is a whiteboard and some small magnets. Glue the magnets on the back of each bottle and you’re done! The result? Every shade is easy to see and it’s just a matter of plucking your polish of choice from the board!

Some of us have enough polishes to fill a suitcase, so why not do just that? Suitcases come in all different sizes and you can use dividers to keep your nail colours upright. Simply pop a dot of polish on the top of each lid so you can pick a shade without having to lift a dozen of them out. For black lids, place a white sticker on top before swatching the colour. This is the perfect option for those who prefer to keep their polish collection tucked away in storage.

Alternatively, if you want to put your impressive collection on display, try using a few shelves. Stack the shelves close together so there's just enough room for the height of each bottle. And if you want to make it more visually appealing, organise your collection by colour and add a pretty border to make it look like a piece of art!

Don’t let your pretty candle holders go to waste once the wax runs out. Clean them out and use them to house your nail polish! For extra organisation points, group similar shades together and keep each ‘family’ in separate jars for easy sorting.

Do you like the idea of a storage solution that doubles up as a decorative piece? Placing your polish bottles onto a tiered cake stand is the answer. If you have a sideboard or bathroom bench in need of some colour, this stand is a practical and colourful way to fill the space.
