Where do you keep your pretties?

I l.o.v.e nail polish. I love all the different colors. I love the shapes of the bottles. I love the names of the polishes. I love it all.

I bring my own color with me when I get my nails done so I’m always on the look out for new shades/brands. I don’t have hundreds of bottles, but I do have enough that I had to find somewhere to keep them.  I’ve read that nail polish should be kept in a cool dark place, but I couldn’t bear to keep my pretties locked away in a cabinet or drawer (no need to call protective services, they are in a cool dry place and not under any direct light).  Plus I like to see them, it’s like looking at candy in a candy jar to me, so I keep my polishes on clear polish racks.

 I have two small racks and two large racks. The small racks are approximately 13 inches wide and 6 1’2 inches long. I got the small racks from a local Asian beauty supply store. I can get 37-44 bottles on the small rack depending on the size of the bottles. There are four rows on the small rack. The large racks are 16 x11x2 and can hold approximately 60 bottles. There are five rows on the large racks. I got them  here at the Supply Source. I’ve ordered from the Supply Source twice with no issues. I have one of each size rack in the pics above.

I’m always changing them around. Sometimes I arrange them by color, other times by shapes and brands. It’s the little things that make me happy:).

    The magazine is called Nail Pro…I believe they have a trial offer of 2 free magazines. It’s an informative magazine. Be sure to check them out. Thanks for the nail polish info I’m going to check out the RBL website!
