For years, I kept my nail polish in increasingly bigger Sterlite storage containers. Finally, when I had topped out a 5-drawer rolling rack and cussed under my breath every time I looked for a polish, I decided I had to think of another solution.
I envied the wall-mounted storage racks, but sadly, my "polish room" is a corner in my bedroom and I just don't have the space to dedicate to the wall mounted racks. That's when I realized that a short, narrow bookshelf would work perfectly in my space. I went to Target to look at possible solutions and unfortunately, the bookshelves were just too deep and tall for my purposes. That's when I saw the CD/Media cases.
Target had a B1G1-half-off sale on homegoods that week, so I snatched up the remaining two and begged my husband to put them together for me. I thought I would organize all of my polishes that weekend. Then I had the bright idea to catalog all of my polishes at the same time. So, my weekend project turned in to 2 months of off-and-on work.
Yesterday, I'd had enough of my make-up/polish area looking like a bomb hit it, so I decided to finish my project once and for all. This afternoon, I finally got all of my polishes in the media towers, organized by brand...
Whew! I love the look of this. It's easier to find the polish in this configuration that in the rolling drawer containers.
It's still not finished. I still need to create a new spreadsheet (my old one is horribly out of date) and I still want to organize the polish within each brand from light to dark, but this is a start. :P
If you are interested in the media towers, you can find them at Target or on Target's website for $24.99.
