DIY Nail Polish Organisation

nail polish organisation

The small nail polish collection I have all reside in a small drawer beside my bed. The bad thing about this is that it takes a long time to find the colour I’m looking for. I have to lift each one up to see if that’s the colour I’m looking for and it’s all just a hassle. So I thought wouldn’t it be great if I could see all the colours I have right there in front of me, so here I am blogging about my recent DIY project.

It really only took about 30-40 minutes, obviously depending on the size of your nail polish collection. For this you need blank, white labels. I found big rectangle labels lying around, I simply used this and cut them to small square pieces. You have to make sure they are small enough to fit on the lid of the nail polish. I recommend getting those circle shaped white stickers, they would be perfect for this and would look a lot neater. After, simply swipe the nail polish colour onto the labels, wait to dry and then stick it onto the lid.

Some tips;

– Use paper to protect the table you’re working on.

– Be prepared for nail polish all over your fingers.

– An alternative to using sticky labels is using paper and putting stick tape on top to attach to the lid. Although this will take longer

There you go, something so simple but will make your life a lot easier.

Funky Dotty Nails!

This is a fun way to upgrade your nails from one block colour to simple funky dotty nails. I used a toothpick to do the dots, if you want more dotting tool ideas check out our post Nails: Dotting tools at home.

For the first base colour I used a pinkish-brown colour and then applied a clear top coat. I then went and added the black dots after it had dried. You can be as creative as your want with the dots; any pattern, any colour and any size. So be creative and also remember to add a clear top coat again over the dots to protect the design.

Happy Painting!
