Nail Polish Hanging Organizer
This is a hanging jewelry organizer that I picked up from the Container Store. I compared with my options on Amazon.com but the sale CS is running this weekend made it an easy buy. $17.99 for 80 clear pockets. There was also a shoe organizer for $14.99 with much larger pockets, that would probably hold 4 polishes at a time, but this felt like a better option.
I was careful to pick one with a heavy duty hanger. Most of the hanging jewelry organizers have flimsy wire things and that’s just not going to hold up a bazillion glass bottles of polish. In this initial go around I was able to get 2 bottles in per pouch. as the plastic and canvas relaxes I think I’ll be able to shuffle a bit to make more capacity. Or it will permit me to put bottles in the pockets on the back side. Right now I’m about 4 bottles over capacity, and I can’t fit any of my base or top coats. So we’ll see how this thing stretches over the next few days.
Why do this instead of the classic Ikea Helmer? Because I don’t have a spot in my house where a case of nail polish wouldn’t make it look like a dorm room. I have a nearly unused closet off of my master bath and this will hang in there nicely. And my bathroom linen closet will get a ton of shelf space back.
And who knows, the Helmer is $40. If these pockets don’t relax enough to accommodate more on the back side and I have to spend another $18, maybe I should just step it up and hide the drawer system in the same closet.
