Before I had kids (you know this will be a good post when it starts like this) I always had my hands manicured. Nowadays, I rarely get my nails professionally done because the polish won’t last for more than one day. I start cleaning and doing dishes (cue for the mice to start singing the Cinderelli song) and there went the perfect manicure. So for the most part, I fix my nails at home.
If you are fixing your own nails and you are not organizing nail supplies in one spot, chances are you are going through drawers looking for a file, then the polishes are in another spot and you may not even use them unless you see them. If you have a lot of nail polishes, like me, I love this tiered nail polish organizer that I purchased about two years ago. Mine holds over 60 polishes and it is full. If I feel compelled to buy a new polish, I give one away that I am not using. Not that it’s anything to brag about to say that you limit yourself to 60 nail polishes! But the organizer does keep them all in one spot.
See how it is tiered so that you see all of your polishes? Love that.
If you only have a few polishes and a minimal amount of nail supplies, I love the idea of using these Command Brand bins that simply adhere to the inside of the cabinet. I found these two sizes at Target but you can also fine them on Amazon here.
Here is an example of the smaller caddy at work inside my cabinet. I don’t use it for this purpose but I wanted to show you how the small one fits a few polishes, a nail file and a cuticle cutter. I actually use this caddy for my floss picks.
Purchase a little acrylic divider (they sell these at Walmart, Target and sometimes at Homegoods) to place the rest of the nail/foot care supplies. Here you can fit your files, toe separators, cuticle oil, cuticle and nail cutters. I place this little caddy next to the polishes in my bathroom cabinet.
Of course you can also put together a little bin (even from the dollar store) or a small cleaning caddy and place all your nail supplies in there. This is a great idea because it makes it portable and you can take it with you wherever you do your nails. In my case, I keep it in my bathroom which is where I do my nails, so portability is not an issue.
The mice are almost done with my dress, gotta go!
