Nail Polish Organization

As my nail polish collection is starting to grow, I need to organize them so I won't run out and buy similar shades of polish.

A great and easy way to do it is to get some nail wheels so you can see all your nail polish in one shot.

Next, I went to the dollar store to get some storage boxes with handles to organize my polish by shades. For me, it is fairly easy as I mostly have pink/purple polishes.


As you can tell, I don't have an absurd collection. But I thought if I organize it as my collection grows, it will be much easier as it goes.


This box is for my pinks and purple. If I am super-organized, I would have labelled the color on the nail wheel with the name of the polish. 


This way, I can see what I have and won't go out and buy similar shades.


This is more of my nudes/grey/green colors. Lots of room to grow as I'm more adventurous in trying out new colors.


I got a set of 10 nail wheels from ebay. These can also be found in beauty supply stores.

  1. The color wheels are cool - I may need something like that, I've got about 5-6 variations of the same red!

    1. It is a great way to display all the nail polish you have in a glance. After all, we only have 10 fingers and toes and we have lot more polish than 20 :)

  2. The Nail Wheels are awesome! I was actually also thinking about how I should organize my nail polishes. The big make up bag I'm using is not really working very well for me!

    1. The nail wheel displays all the shades you have in a glance making life much easier. When I am at the store shopping for shades, I kind of recall I have something remotely similar but can't remember and a lot of times cannot find that nail polish. This way, I know what I have and I can go out and get more :)

  3. Wow this is such a good idea!! I have nearly 100 different polishes (absurd I know!!) and this way it's so easy to keep track, plus see what they actually look like on the nail xxx

    1. wow, you have an amazing collection of polish. I'm just slowly building my collection. A lot of nail polish I got from my Julep Maven boxes I don't wear a lot, I gave away to my nieces. Do try the nail wheel and see how you like them.

  4. This is how I store my polish currently - in 8 x 5 litre tubs! With the polish numbers approaching 450 (OH my!) I think it is time for my first (and I swear - last) Helmer!!!

    1. I find it much easier to see what I have on the nail wheels than to guess what I think I have. Now I'm all organized, I can go out and get more :)
