Nail polish organisation and storage - new storage rack!

How do you store your nail polishes? Do you put them in a box and hide them away under the sink? Do you display them loud and proud on your vanity/chest of drawers/some random piece of furniture? Well, you know you have a problem when you require a nail polish storage solution as big as this:


This is meant to be an OPI nail polish rack, as you can see it fits 13 OPI nail polishes perfectly on each shelf. My bf being the kind and creative man that he is, decided to build one for me because I don't like to keeping my polishes hidden. I think it makes me buy more because I don't realise how much I have. I'm not sure this is going to help me though, I go 'ooooh space for more OPI' :-D This is rather loosely based off another nail polish rack I spied online, I'll be darned if I can remember where, you'd think I would have book marked it!

Anyway, I decided to start with the OPI and try to somewhat colour co-ordinate my collection:


Purples first of course :-) Then I decided to build from the ground up and fill with other random nail polish brands that I have, but of course if I have more OPI, the others will be moved off elsewhere. I did mention that I may need a second rack and the bf was just :-| hehe.

I have noticed that some people colour co-ordinate polish regardless of brand but I prefer to keep the different brands separate. The OPI looks too nice all lined up together. And also shocking how many unopened Sephoras there are, but my excuse is that I have mini bottles of those... oh and I have no idea where to put the mini boxes of polishes! I also need to get rid of one Essie polish so it all fits nicely on one row... or buy a lot more :-D I think I know which way I'll be going there. Sigh.
