Bionic Asks: Suggestions for organizing my nail polish?

by Bionic Beauty on 30.Jun.2010 · 8 comments

Bionic Beauty Asks - Makeup and beauty question blog article seriesI’m in desperate need of suggestions to help me get my nail polish “collection” under control. I figured I would open up the discussion on Bionic Beauty in hopes that you all have some ideas.

My polishes currently reside in three totes. One soft sided case holds all my nail art pens, polishes, stickers, and special effects top coats (like glimmer, holographic, etc).

The second tote is an ancient Caboodle! This one holds random nail polishes in the bottom section; gloss and matte top coats in the left drawer; and my OPI Designer Series polishes in the right drawer.

The third tote is a fishing tackle box. The top tray holds my selection of “current favorites” plus my base coats; the middle tray is mini-sized polish, a few more favorites (my Milani 3D Holographics!) and my few Rescue Beauty Lounge polishes. The bottom section is huge and holds the rest of my nail colors.

And so this week’s Bionic Asks Do you have any ideas on organizing my nail polish stash? I’d prefer to use the totes I have, or at the very least, find a cheap alternative. I’m on a very limited budget. Ideas? Suggestions?

Stay Bionic,
