I am a nail polish junkie and as a result I have a heap of nail polishes crammed in a drawer. I am getting very sick of this messy storage so I'm looking for another way to store them. I am really interested is getting a nail polish rack to hang on my wall so all my polishes are easily accessible. Do you know where I could buy such a thing? Or how I could make one myself? Even other storage tips would be helpful! :)

I keep em in containers upright. ;) Get shallow containers and stack em side by side to reduce out of site out of mind colors.

You can purchase cheap nailpolish racks from amazon and ebay.
If you go the rack method keep the racks in an area where it won't get direct sunlight or get hot as both will ruin polishes. I have polishes going back years because I keep mine stored in clear shoe boxes in my closet and each looks brand new.
Wall mounting is an option! Dulce Candy did a wicked tutorial for making a nail polish rack

That looks perfect!

That's awesome Lauren! I'm gonna give it a try. Is it very sturdy if I wanted to hang it?

For a non-rack option, I use this container from Target. It's the perfect height for polishes and you can store nail implements in one section and nail polishes in the other. Or, if your collection is larger, just fill the whole thing with polish! :)

You could use a spice rack. A circular one with just a shelf rather than holes for each spice. Thats what i use :)

There's always the Ikea Helmer option too. I just upgraded to that from individual boxes per colour. I seem to have already filled my first Helmer though, didn't realise I had *that* much polish!

I either put them in plastic baskets (Walmart, around a dollar for a pack) or in acrylic nail polish containers. The latter has a very stylish display and can be found at The Container Store for under $10.

I second the spice rack! They are cheaper than proper nail polish racks as well. I don't have one yet, I keep meaning to buy one. At the moment I have all my nail stuff in a wicker basket.

I've got a Helmer and the moment I heard my mum was going to Ikea tonight, I sent her the money to get me another. They're great as they're so compact and the perfect size for nail polish and most nail art accessories. At £25 each they're pretty much a bargain too!

you can go onto Ebay and look for nail polish holders. iam pretty sure you will be able to find affordable ones there! ^_^
I used to work at Ulta and every time a new OPI launch came out they would get bombarded with the 3 tier acrylic stacks and they would just toss them... Ask the manager she will more than likely give them to you :) Although building your own would be fun!!!
