Easy Pinterest Pretty

We've all seen these images circulating around pinterest {follow me here} and loved the chic and simple organized way to store your polish. 

I also shared a photo last week of this fun way to display those pretty colors...

 I figured, why not do this? Easiest pinspiration ever. I bought a footed candle jar for about $5 at Michaels, and boom, done.

To keep things looking clean, I just put my Essie polishes in this container, along with some Chanel lipsticks for fun. It sits on my bathroom counter and I love it!

A lightbulb went off in my head and I realized I had plenty of those small square flower vases, leftover from arrangements that I don't ever use but can't bear to throw away. You probably have some of these sitting under your kitchen sink as well! I downsized the amount of products I have sitting on the counter and put the few that I use every single day into one of these old vases.


While at Target this weekend, I picked up some new hand soap in a clean white container. Love. It. Reminds me of being at a spa...don't mind if I do. 

For the rest of the polishes, I used another square vase that I will store underneath the counter. See that Insta-Dri top coat? The ONLY reason I am patient enough to paint my own nails, thanks for introducing me Steph! And thank you, Sally Hansen.

Cotton balls have a new home as well.

And just a few of my other favorite products I had to narrow down onto this little snakeskin tray.

Shall I show the the scary before picture? This is legit what the counter looks like after the morning Katie tornado sweeps through the bathroom in a rush. Clutter, clutter, clutter.

And after...I actually can see and enjoy my bathroom counter!

One more pretty polish shot, just for fun.

Have a great Monday y'all! xoxo.

I love that idea of storing your polish!! But is it bad that I couldn't get half of mine in any of those jars?! haha I may have a problem....but I guess you could just put your faves in it :) Thanks for sharing! Love the before/after pics!! xo

I love this idea of keeping some of your nail polishes in a container on the counter. It adds a nice pop of color too.
