Glossybox DIY 2 – Cheap Nail Polish Organiser Step-by-Step Tutorial

This post is all about DIY! Yay, I always enjoyed making things and I’m really glad that I get to share these creative ideas with you guys. This is a cheap nail polish storage solution, but it can also be used a  makeup storage solution (e.g. lipsticks). 🙂 For Glossybox DIY idea 1, earring storage box and organiser, please click here.

My June Glossybox arrived this week, finally! I’m a little late in reviewing the content, as this month’s box has obviously been over-reviewed like every month’s box by this time. I’ve taken some some pictures, and I will upload them when I run out of blog post ideas (which is probably never). Anyways, this post is all about creating something awesome using the empty Glossybox.

I’m gonna show the steps in pictures but if you want to create something similar if not the same, then please let me know if anything is unclear, e.g. dimensions. 🙂 Comment below or tweet me for questions.

Do you use your Glossybox as a nail polish storage, like I do?

If you do, have you ever experienced this problem? It’s not a portable box because the nail polishes get jumbled up with a slight movement. In addition, you should always store nail polishes upright to avoid discolouration.

So as a problem solver, I decided to make little compartment for each individual polish (they must feel so special). Other than the empty Glossybox itself, you will need the packaging the box, a ruler, a pair of scissors and a pen.

Use the the packaging box to create horizontal and vertical dividers (I made 4 x 5 pieces). Make slits on the dividers depending on the size of  you nail polishes.

Then simply combine the horizontal pieces with the vertical pieces as show in the next image.

Once that’s done and if the measurements are correct, the dividers should fit nicely into the main box.

All DIY ideas are my own. I will always link back to the original if I made an exact copy of someone else’s idea. Also, sorry for the dusty look of these pictures!!!  My camera decided to collect dust, I didn’t realise how bad it was until I processed the pictures on my computer.
