Homemade Nail Polish Stand

I did a nail polish cull, cutting my collection from 74 to 36! I just hadn’t been wearing policy that much recently, and a lot of them were still being stored in a box under my bed. The rest were inn a little basket on my chest of drawers which kept them corralled but not very easy to see.  And that’s another reason I wasn’t using them.

So I made some little stands for them.  I did this a while ago with foam, but ended up getting rid of them when I moved house.  Plus I had about 400 polishes then and didn’t need stands that big anymore.

I used some cardboard that my planner came packaged in (side note am now obsessed with planner stickers!), and some foam board which I have accumulated somehow, and some silver crepe paper.

I just cut the cardboard to my desired size, and then stacked them on top of each.  I cut the foam board to the same size and glued that on the top and bottom of the stack.  I then wrapped it all over with the silver crepe paper.  As usual I glued it all with fabric glue as I find this to be very secure, and my regular PVA is glued shut!  It looks so much more organised now, although it does take up a bit more room on my dressing table.
