Build Your Very Own Nail Polish Holder!

Introduction: Build Your Very Own Nail Polish Holder!

Are you having problems with the storage of your nail polishes? No problem! here's one idea that could help you out with that!

Since I was 6, I always loved to paint my nails with flowers and stuff. Now I'm 24 and still loving having my nails done. After years buying nail polishes I had a problem....How to store them? I used to have them in a basket, but its difficult to find the color I want, I have ruined up more than one manicure because of looking for a colour in the basket while the base coat was I decided to build a storage easy to use where I could find any colour I want, and pick it in a safe way for the manicure.

As a result, here's my first instructable! Please be kind to me since English it is not my native language (I'm from Spain).

Hope you enjoy it, and let me know if you try it or have any questions or suggestions.

Step 1: Materials Needed

You'll need:
- Some pill boxes
- A pair of scissors
- Decorative tape (optional)
- Some Glue
- Cardboard
- An exacto Knife
- A box or more cardboard to build the base of the structure

Step 2: Making the Little Holders for Each Color

Take one of the boxes and cut one of the sides. I recommend you to put some tape at the corners prior cutting in order to avoid the box to break.
Divide the cut part into sections, the long ones will be used as handles to take the little boxes out of the big one to avoid ruining your manicure while drying.
Stick one long cardboard piece to one of the sides of your box.
You can leave the holders like that or you could paint them, put some paper on them or, as I chose, use some decorative tape to give them some color and also more resistance (Step 3).

Step 3: Decorating the Boxes (optional)

Put some decorative tape all over the box. This will give it more resistance as well as better looking finish!

Step 4: Building the Base of the Holder

Glue cardboard on the big box, you won't need to do this if your box is hard enough. Then decorate the box to make it look gorgeous.

Step 5: Putting All Together

Just put the little boxes onto the big one. Now just fill the boxes with your polishes and you are done!

    Nice, much tidier! You should put the photo with the organized polishes first so that it appears in the thumbnail image.
