So I search and search the internet on topics on how to store all my nail polish and accessories and finally on youtube I found some tutorials on how you make you own

Here are the supplies you need

-Foam Boards (at least 3 to make one rack. I used six)
-Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
-Duct Tape
-Ruler
-Pencil
-Scisscors
-Box Cutter
-Screw Driver and Screws

Also  the colors are going to vary in the pictures because sadly I lost some of them when making the first set of racks

Here is what most of my nail polishes and acessories look like before

I know right I have a lot of nail polish almost 200 and still going.


Here is a picture of what you will need



The first thing you need to do is on one foam board measure out and mark 5 inches from one end to the other on both sides of the board and connect the dots.
This will let you know where your shelves go


On the second board you're going to measure out 7 2-inch stripes going width wise and 7 1-inche stripes. Using the box cuter and ruler cut out the stripes

These will be part of the shelves

With the third board you're going to measure out 2  2 1/2-inch stripes going height wise. unfortunately I forgot to snap a picuture, but these will be the sides of the rack

Take the 1 inch stripes and cover them with the duct tape for a fun look. This is the back and what it looks like


and this is the finished stripes


Next you're going to glue the 2 inch stripes to the first board using the hot glue gun. You're going to place on strip against the top of the board, across all the lines that you made and one on the bottom

I reinforced the shelves by adding glue to both the top and underneath each shelf

Next you're going to glue the 2 1/2 stripes to the sides and the shelves

After those are dry you are now going to glue your duct tape covered 1 inch strips to the 2 inch stripes to create a boarder so the polish doesn't fall out


And here is the finished racks

With 6 foam boards I was able to make 2 big racks and 1 small rack

I used four screws for each rack. One on each corner to hang them up


This is what they look like




And this is them all filled out.




So hope this helps you

Awesome!  I have been searching for a solution to my "nail polish problem", wish I had the wall space for a rack like that.

Thanks. I too had a problem with space for all my polishes. But lucikly I found some space for them. The racks can be customized to fit any space, so you can make them as small as you want to fit any space

The big rack is 29 3/4" tall and 20 1/2" wide and the small rack is 29 3/4" tall and 10 3/8" wide
