Nail Polish Organization

January 19th 2012 / 1 minute to read

Just a quick photo I shot on my point and shoot to show how I organize my nail polish collection since I’ve been getting asked about it a lot lately.

LOL thank you! Probably the only place in the house that is THIS organized!


This is a photo I’d expect to be floating around Pinterest or Tumblr. It’s so pretty and inspires :) I wish I had an awesome makeup station like that.

I’m not perfect, but pretty good at doing my own nails, here’s a helpful video on youtube that helped me!

I’m starting to love youtube videos. I’ve been learning different braiding styles there =]

Love the new design! I love that you change the button, so I always know when you do a new layout.

And your nail polish station looks like it belongs in a salon or something! So many colors.

I’m interested in the Hunger Games colors from China Glaze, but I’m not sure when they’ll be out.

Thank you so much!

I actually do not own ANY China Glaze polishes however I am super interested in the Hunger Games collections simply because I really enjoyed the books LOL!


oh my god that collection is just… EPIC. you make me wish i still painted my nails lol

1.) How often do you change your polish?

2.) How do you decide which color tO use?

3.) Do you paint your toenails?

There’s almost no room for more! I used to have a dry large collection of polish, but as an adult I’ve found I don’t have time for it to dry. I have two colors :)

1. Every 2-3 days. Since I do a LOT of typing every day (code and such) I wear down my nail tips heavily.

2. If I can’t decide, I ask my oldest or my husband to pick a color out for me! Otherwise I just try to use my newest polishes OR depending, I go seasonal.

3. I USED to paint my toenails myself but now I’m addicted to monthly pedicures at my favorite nail place. I DO bring my OWN polishes though and ALWAYS get compliments on the colors and such (they carry OPI, China Glaze, and Essie). I generally use Zoya, A-England, and Essie for my toes.

When it comes to dry time, use a quick dry top coat like Essie’s Good to Go!


Wow, that’s incredible!

Looks great!!

Thanks so much!


OMG!! I just found your blog and this makes my heart sing. I have nearly 200 bottles and they are all stuffed in a box. I think I am going to try to put my collection on display. What good is 200 bottles stashed away where no one can see them.

LOL thank you!!!! When the sun hits it just right in the morning it’s like a super sparkly rainbow of awesomeness!
