Finally!!

Yep, finally I'll reveal to you, what I was so excited about. 
Ever since I started blogging and my collection of nail polishes grew, I wanted this ... badly!

I teased my followers on twitter and facebook a bit and showed them some sneak peeks of this post and now you can see all of it! 
 What are those mysterious packages? Detective Kiara is about to find out ! :D 

Well, they do have something to do with this: 
 Well, of course, what else could it be on a nail polish related blog =))

After unpacking and putting it together etc. it looked like this: 
Ahaa! :D Now you know what it is right? ;)
Nail Polish racks!!! Yaaay ! (actually they're display cabins for collectibles ...but nail polishes are like collectibles, right? :D)
First I tried to order them by color, but it didn't look good, so I did it by Brand and by Alphabet ...just like I have them on my list. Yes, I have a list :D 
Tadaa! The finished look! God, I love it...every time I walk by, I stare at them and can't believe they're all mine :D 
Now that I see them all together I realize how many I have ...gosh, I'm crazy :)) 
I only have to decorate the racks a little bit now (one of them has a little defect) and then they're perfect :) 

How do you store your nail polishes?

  1. I need this. Badly. Badly! I have to do something like this ASAP. It would be so great to watch all the polishes.

    Btw, great collection. :)

  2. Very pretty! But you already need more, ha ha! I store mine in drawers made for crafters (melmers), but now my glitter collection is pushing the nail polish out of the way, LOL. :)

  3. Wow - even the large flormar ones fit into these!
    To be honest: I'm kinda jealous. (;
    I plan to build my own nail polish rack, hopefully it's gonna work!

    1. Unbelievable, right? I didn't even think they could fit, I thought I'd put them on top of the racks from the start :P
      I keep my fingers crossed, that your rack's gonna work out! I'm sure it will ;)

  4. I have 2 melmers. The displays are nice! Displays seem to hold quite a bit but you may be in need of something more practical soon.

    1. I had one helmer before :) They hold a lot, but I don't plan do buy many more polishes so I just get 2 more of these and that should cover it :)

  5. Awesome! Love it. My nail polish rack got packed up so now they're all jumbled in a big storage tub. Wah.

    1. In Germany @Baumarkt. That's a hardware store and my mom saw them and told me about them :D

    2. These might be what I'm looking for, thanks for sharing!
      Could you please be more specific about what kind of Baumarkt, full name, possibly with a link, and I suppose it's for the bathroom? Do you have a name for the cabinet?
      And any other information would be great thanks :)
      I have mine on acrylic steps and drawers, but like to have a wall, but without having to dust them all the time LOL

    3. It's called MAX BAHR and here is the link: http://www.maxbahr.de/index.php, but I didn't buy it online and I don't think you can order it online. It's not for the bathroom, it's a cabinet for collectibles. Those actually were some kind of left-over cabinets. They were reduced from 25€ to 20€.
      Sorry, that's all I know :)
      It's really practical with the glass front, because you don't have to dust them off ;)

    4. Thank you so much, I just been to Germany LOL - but plan a one-day trip in June, so I'll check where there are stores in the area I go to - again thanks :)

  9. Oh my gosh I'm so jealous! I've been searching for a way to store/organize my polishes and haven't found anything yet :/ I've got them all thrown in a giant tote bag which is not good considering all the glass!!

    1. Yea that's not so good :/ I stored them in a helmer from IKEA before. It's a good way to store them, but I like to see them in front of me :) I hope you'll find a way to organize your polishes!!

  10. This is so cool haha it makes me want to raid your stash though :P
    Oh I have a list too :P I don't have half as many polishes but the list is so handy to have :) I organize mine by brand too. The bottles look so much better that way :D
