Eureka Moment: Nail Polish Storage System --- AMW Style!

To those who wonder how I store my nail polishes, I store them inside various cases!  Inside a tiny train case, the rest on random clear plastic cases with cover.  Each time I do nail art, it's a huge hassle to get all 3 storage cases and search the right polish!  I've always wanted to try to put them in shoe boxes but I want them bigger and sturdier!  

EUREKA MOMENT!  At the least expected places!  CD-R King!  What can I find in this place aside from computer related stuff?  Storage boxes!

When you treat your nail polishes like your babies, an A4 box will look like a polish box!  It's cute that they have 3 box sizes available so you can choose it depending on your nail polish collection!


I bought the largest located at the right hand side on photo above. 


You clip it as shown on photo below.  If you want to make sure it won't detach forever, you can glue-gun the cardboard boxes together!

This huge A4 box can house approximately 50-60 nail polishes!  I like the fact that I can see the shades easily!  A tip to share, you can purchase "silica gel" at hardware stores to prevent moist.


Covered well to prevent dust from collecting.  With the perfect size and flat surface?  I can repurchase 3, 6 or even 10 more boxes to stack them up!  Okay I'm exaggerating!  But I have to be honest with you, I already have a second box ready for the rest of my polish collection!

And oh, you dislike the "CD-R King" brand name printed?  You can cover it with stickers or use a black marker to hide them! :) Easy breeze-y!


Last but not the least...what's the BEST part?  The box costs only Php150.00 (approx $3.48)!  A true blue EUREKA MOMENT!

How do you store your polish?
Any other cheaper alternative?

Keep smilin'
Stay happy!

  4. cool! I did saw this box at CDRKing the other day, but I never thought if making it into a nail polish storage. I just use a rectangular tray for my polishes, I don't have much anyway... but I'm certainly drooling over your collection. It's so colorful!

  12. Thanks for sharing, this is a good idea. The best part is, na-p-protectahan yung polishes against sunlight.
