Beautifully Organized: Nail Polish

Hi all! Arianna here, back with more organizing inspiration. Today’s focus is nail polish. Currently I keep everything mani/pedi in a cosmetics bag with clear zippered pockets – one pocket is for tools (nail clipper, file, etc.) and the other is for polishes. It’s worked great, however after several years of use, the bag now is worn and torn, and so I’ve been thinking of either finding a similar replacement, or maybe trying out one of these ideas:

(1) Dedicate a shelf in the medicine cabinet to them

(2) Store them in a glass jar

(3) Line them up on a vanity tray

(4) Keep them in an acrylic organizer or (5) in a re-purposed spice rack

How do you like to store and keep your nail polishes organized?

Til next time my friends -happy organizing!

  1. I recently adopted #2 and I am loving the way it looks. The jar (exact same as the first photo, actually) doesn’t exactly hold my entire (very) large collection, but I’ve been keeping my go-to’s in it and they add a nice mix of colors to my bedroom!

  2. Love the acrylic organizer….I keep mine in a acrylic tray that has a carrying handle. But because I am a total polish addict it is time for a new + bigger container 🙂

  3. Great ideas!! I just organized mine the other day (again) !! Lol , I use a clear shoe box size container, but I am in love with the tray one above and think that I will do that as well with my favorite seasonal colors.

    Happy weekend!


  4. Argh! I don’t know what to do with mine! I have over 90 and the bottles are just so pretty I want to display them (especially since I keep forgetting what I have) but I can’t find the right solution. Right now I have them on a cute West Elm tray but it still doesn’t allow me to see the colors – I need stadium seating for my nail polish! Why can’t that be invented!

  5. i am currently trying to not bite my nails, which means i have to keep them looking pretty and polished. i am buying polish up a storm, and have been thinking about putting them in a jar displayed colorfully. what a timely post for me! thanks!!
