Well, since the dawn of my obsession I’ve struggled with where to keep all of this polish I keep accumulating. In the beginning it was tupperware and the it went to being displayed openly on a desk and then it was shoved into any empty drawers available. Fortunately I came across an ad on a yard sale page on FB for a $25 corner table with shelves and knew it was perfect for our tiny little bedroom. We already have a full bedroom set (sleigh bed, night stand, dresser, and then some piece of tall furniture I can’t think of the name for) so our small room seemed doomed when it came to having any real space for functional polish storage. For the past few months I’ve been spreading my things out on the floor and picking polishes out of drawers which was NOT working, especially when it comes to my back… There are only so many hours you can lean over on the floor, sit indian style, etc. while focusing intensely on minute details spread out before you. Not only that but the lighting sucked everywhere in our house except for the dining room table and hauling all of my things out there for a 10 minute manicure was just a pain the ass.
SO. I bring you the “mani corner”… Complete with a shoe rack at the bottom for extra polish stroage. It might be a bit ghetto but it works and quite honestly, it doesn’t even crowd our room!
It’s located in the one corner of our room not taken up by any other furniture and it rests between the bed and a wall.
It might seem tight or jumbled but I swear it’s not. I’m too OCD to allow that to happen anyway!
The top of the desk contains all indie polishes as well as bottles of Vixen Polish and everything required to make it it.
Here are just some of the indie polish supplies I use (glitters, scoops, etc.).
Down below the shelves I keep some of my empty bottles, their tops, and then a container full of nail decorating items (Konad and Bundle Monster sets, nail jewels, tape, chevrons/french mani tapes, etc.). I also keep all of my base coats, top coats, and everything in between in this container.
So that’s it for now! I will continue tweaking it but I’m extremely happy with it so far. It’s not too shabby for a $25 desk and some old stuff I had lying around!
What do you think?
