You're Doing It Wrong: Storing Your Nail Polish

May 22, 2015 by Izabella Zaydenberg

With Memorial Day weekend finally here, it’s safe to say that we have definitely entered pedi season. Whether you’re heading to the salon to get your tootsies groomed or DIYing it, you probably have quite a few nail polish bottles scattered around your house (or buried underneath your bathroom sink in a wicker basket). If you haven’t taken a look at those precious OPI or Essie bottles in months, do us a favor and look now. Did you look? Good. Did you see that gross oil-y layer separating from the pigment in each bottle? Guess what–it’s not that the polish is cheap, or that it went bad on its own. The problem is you–you’re just storing them wrong!

When nail polish is stored upside down or to the side, it begins to separate and gets damaged. Additionally, those dollar store plastic bins take up a ton of space (which, if you’re a city girl, you know you’re kind of short on). Plus, when they’re all jumbled up in there, each polish becomes impossible to see.

Enter the Color Clutch. It’s a pretty simple concept: the case doesn’t take up more space than a book, and has a clear lid, which allows you to see each polish in the case. The foam in the case also has a flexible tab, allowing for any-size bottle to fit into the case. The most important part? Each polish will be stored upright, which will help prevent separating.

And just because we want to show off, check out how well it photographs for Insta:
