Mani/Pedi in a Box

Mani Pedi in a Box

When I set out to organize our bathroom cabinet, one of the things I wanted to do was corral all of my “nail care” supplies in one spot. Previously I had my nail polish under the sink, the clippers in the medicine cabinet, and the nail polish remover in the guest bathroom, so any time I wanted to use my supplies, I had to collect them from all of those different places. {Rough life, I know. ;)}

I already had this pretty silver box, {I think it may have once held a Bath & Body Works gift set of some sort…} and I thought it would be the perfect way to keep my mani/pedi stuff together.

Box

I wanted to make it a little prettier, so I added some colorful Washi tape and a quick label. {See how I make my labels here.}

Label and Washi Tape

I gathered my supplies and a few little containers. I corralled my nail polish in an extra dollar bin tub and used the bottom of a ring box to hold the cotton balls and q-tips. The silver box ended up being the perfect size– I love it when a plan comes together!

Labeled Mani Pedi Box

I stick a few basic colors of polish, so I was able to fit everything in one little container. If you wanted to do something similar but have a wider variety of colors, you could store your favorites/seasonal colors in your box and switch them out when you want a change.

This was a quick and easy little project; I can’t believe I didn’t do it sooner! Another perk of my handy dandy little box is that I can take it wherever I need it. If I want to keep an eye on the C’s downstairs while I spiff up my toes, I can just grab the box and go! It may not be a huge change, but any time I can put a system in place to make things a little simpler, I’m all for it!

How do you keep your mani/pedi supplies organized?
