10 Nail Polish Storage Solutions

As my nail polish collection has grown, so has my need to figure out how the heck to store it all. As I have mentioned before, I love looking at my nail polishes. I have an entire collection of colors I love and I want them to be on display for the world (me) to see!

1. DIY Nail Polish Box


2. Nail Polish Storage Cubes



These storage cubes are actually shoe boxes. I love that they are clear and you can see all the pretty things inside. You can check out the boxes here. Almost any plastic bins will do, just make sure that the bottom is FLAT otherwise nothing will stand up straight and it will drive you crazy.

3. DIY Book Shelf Side Storage


I am drooling over this one. I wish I had room for this shelf and all the nail polish to store on it. SO pretty!

4. DIY Shelf


Can you believe this shelf is a DIY project?! I LOVE it. I need it. I am trying to convince my husband to make me one this weekend.

5. Acrylic Wall Display



I am dreaming of the day I have the wall space for acrylic nail polish displays. If you have the wall space for these babies, you can snag them here.

6. Nail Polish Rolls


This is a great way to store if you want your nail polish to portable or not on display. You can buy the here.

7. Storage Case



This storage option is serious. You won’t have to worry about your polish sliding around or falling down all over the place if you want to take it somewhere with you. It is all packed nicely in its own little spot.

8. Glass Vase


This is definitely not the most organized way to store your nail polish, but it would look so pretty on display on your vanity, it seems worth it.

9. IKEA Spice Rack


This is a cheap option, my favorite! You can buy these spice racks, unpainted, from IKEA for $3.99. Choose your own paint to customize, and done.

10. Magnet Board


This is another pretty display to store your nail polish. You could make this as big or as small as you need to store your polish and tools.

Like what you see? Tell your friends!

    Another good and cheap idea I used to use for my girls. We would buy a large fish and tackle box that has those fold out shelves and some cute stickers. We would decorate the tackle box with the stickers, inside and out. The tackle box comes with dividers so you can do what you want with them. This can be used for a make up kit or a fingernail polish kit or both.

      That’s what I use! The polishes fit neatly in the little shelves, and larger things (remover, cotton, lotion, etc) all go in the bottom. There is even plenty of room for emery boards, buffers, orange sticks, q-tips, all the little implements that I need. I love that it shuts tight so if my 2 year old drags it out I don’t have manicure stuff scattered everywhere.

      I am considering getting a tackle box for my collection since it is rather large. How big of a tackle box did you end up getting and how much do you have in your collection? (will help me judge the size I will need. I have around 40 bottles or so…)

      Hey Gabby, thanks for reading! The stickers are actually labels that are painted with the polish, and then once it is dried you just use a hole punch to cut it out.

        That is ingenious! I have a huge collection of polish and they are all in a bag right now. I am trying to find a good idea to organize them. I am OCD to highest so having them all piled together is driving me nuts!

        Thanks for all the great ideas!

    Love these ideas, all of my polishes are in a basket where I have to dig around to find them. The bookshelf idea and the ikea spice rack are my favorite. Gonna make sure the next time I visit ikea to implement that one for sure.

      My husband built me the shelf and I LOVE it! I love having all my polish on display, and it was pretty simple to make! Thanks for reading!

    Honesty these are all great ideas. However I wouldn’t recommend the magnetic storage because before my magnet didn’t stick well and I woke to to a neon pink nail polish stain on my rug!
