So a few weeks back, my make-up train case broke! Uhh don't you hate it when that happens? Well, i immediately ordered a new one, and in typical Carla fashion, i failed to check the measurements assuming it was the same as the one i currently owned. Well, i was wrong! When it arrived, i knew immediately there was no way this make-up obsessed girl would fit all of her beloved make-up in this new case. Needless to say i was not a happy camper! So, i promptly ordered another, this time making sure to purchase the correct one. But what would i do with this one? I mean, i certainly didn't feel like shipping it back. And then it clicked! This would make a great case for organizing my nail polish collection, which until now, had been residing in a large rectangular plastic container... hardly a pretty home for my gorgeous polish collection! Turned out to be indeed! I love how when i open it now, i can see every single color perfectly making it easier to decide on a selection based on my mood. Key word being "easier" not "easy" by any means since there are so many choices! But you've heard me say it before, I'm obsessed with nail polish yada yada, so as you can see, i wasn't kidding! Only thing is, i can't fit much more in this case which can be problematic for future purchases! Hmmm As for my manicure supplies, i keep those in a really pretty fabric bag that i found at Home Goods... couldn't fit it all in this one. I bet if i had the large train case specifically for this purpose, I'd fit it all in there... ok ok, this will have to do for now! So here are some pictures. Hopefully, i will inspire some of my nail polish junkie friends to organize their collections as well.
So when you open the case, it opens up into three tiers on both sides. My thought was to separate each tier by brand. Each brand, i tried to separate by shade.
Getting a picture of the entire open case was quite challenging lol
