Nail Polish Caddy

A while back I was looking for a storage solution for my nail polish collection.  For a long time, I had been storing all my polishes in a shoe-box I kept in our entertainment unit.  I love having all my mani/pedi supplies in our family room since I always paint my nails while watching TV, but the shoe-box just wasn't doing it for me.

I searched around for a nail polish caddy but couldn't find one that caught my eye, so I decided to make my own.

I found all my supplies at my personal Utopia, The Container Store.  This handy bin was the perfect height for my favorite brand of nail polish.  I love that it closes and has a handle that folds down to make for easy carrying and storing.

I also picked up these slotted interlocking dividers.  They come in a large strip and are easy to snap apart to the length you need.  You join the pieces together by sliding one strip onto another, making it easy to customize to any size opening you need.

 With the divider in place, I had room to store 18 nail polishes in my new caddy.

All of this...

...fits easily into this.

I love that it keeps the bottles from falling over and leaking, stores away easily, and can be toted around with the little handle.

 How do you organize and store your nail polish?   What is your favorite polish brand and color?
