Nail polish is one of those things that is great to have (duh) but kinda annoying to store. Unless you have a tiny collection that looks super cute on display, it can be quite tricky. So we have come up with a list of hacks and even some tutorials, for how to display your polish collection!
A couple of things to consider before deciding how you are going to store your collection are:
- Do you want to display your polishes? Or keep them out of public view?
- Consider how large your polish collection is now and how big it will get in the future
- Does your collection need to be portable or can it stay in one spot?
- What brands of polish do you favor? The size and shape of the bottles will affect your storage options
- Which of your polishes do you use most regularly?
All of these things will affect which option for polish storage is the best choice for you!
