Storage Solutions: nail polish

I had been looking for a way to store my nail polishes for a while, but could never settle on anything. I wanted to have something that would keep them on display, but still be functional at the same time which is kind of hard especially for a growing collection. 

Today while browsing the Brooklyn flea market I saw this vintage suitcase and fell in love. I had to have it, and thought it would be perfect to keep my nail polish collection which has been cluttering my dresser, in check. It's the perfect height to keep the nail polishes standing upright and is a good size too, as it is currently only a quarter full and I am aiming to keep my nail polish collection within its boundaries. It also has a little pocket that will be great for putting manicure tools. 

My favorite thing about this setup is that I can keep my nail polishes covered and out of sight easily if I want to. 
I will most likely be keeping it on the floor tucked away under my vanity area. I am so happy to have scored this. Not only is it the perfect storage solution, but it makes a great piece to decorate an apartment with. Love!

In other news, meet my new kitten, Minka!
She's impossible to photograph but so adorable. 

Hope you are all doing well =)

    I just keep mine stuffed in a plastic box under my bed (naughty!)
