Ever since I became a full-on DIY manicure and pedicure gal, I have acquired a myriad of products to help me achieve the best at-home manicure possible. Before the transition, I could contain my modest collection of manicure supplies in a small cosmetic bag tucked away under my bathroom sink. Since I have decided to use CND Shellac* rather than traditional nail polish, my collection of manicure supplies has grown considerably as the application and removal of CND Shellac requires a UV light, pure acetone, 99% isopropyl rubbing alcohol, and various other items.
The point is – tucking my supplies away underneath the bathroom sink is no longer an option. My growing collection of supplies has since moved to a shelf in our guest bedroom. However, I’ve been frustrated by the cluttered and disorganized appearance; and since I typically do my nails in the living room to take advantage of the ample natural lighting, this means many trips back and forth to gather the items I need.
I’ve been on a bit of an organization kick for a while now, and yesterday I decided it was time to tackle the manicure supplies. With the assistance of a versatile utility caddy meant for art and craft supplies and a couple of empty plastic containers, my manicure supplies have never been as organized or easily accessible.
How do you keep your cosmetic clutter organized and accessible?
