NEW Nailpolish Storage

I mentioned a while back that my husband and I bought our first house and moved in September. Now that the boxes are unpacked and we've been settling in, I've started to work on my vanity room and the way I'm organizing and storing my things. 

One of the things I've been brainstorming on how to store for the longest time is my nail polish. Not too long ago, I stumbled upon the answer on YouTube. This tutorial was quick and easy, and I spent only ~$10 recreating this nail polish rack. 

All you need in order to make this nail polish rack is 3 foam-core boards, a hot glue gun, an exacto knife and decorative duct tape of your choice. (Excuse my ugly green walls - blame the previous homeowner. This color won't be staying around for long!) It's as simple as cutting the foam core boards in to strips, and using lots and lots of glue. Be warned - I went through a LOT of hot glue... make sure you have plenty handy.

Believe it or not, this rack is holding 94 nail polishes, and it's shockingly sturdy! If you were to buy an acrylic nail polish rack that holds anywhere close to 93 polishes, you'd be looking at spending around $40+, not including shipping. If you're on a budget, or don't want to spend much to showcase your collection, this is an affordable option that still looks chic! If you really want to save money, you can use 40% off coupons at Michaels (one in the paper, and one using the Michaels app), and keep an eye out for the buy one get one 50% off sales they have on foam core boards now and then.

You might have noticed that I color-coded my polishes - just for fun, plus it looked more organized.

 This is sadly nowhere near my entire collection. I chose to display my more high-end brands like OPI, China Glaze, Zoya, Essie, and Julep and I kept some Sinful Colors in there as well because they look very similar to OPI and China Glaze bottles.
