i currently work in a salon but i have also customers at home.that means I'm going back and forth with my products and i would like to get something to store my nail polishes.i found this on eBay http://www.ebay.com/itm/Multi-Nail-Art-C...292wt_1185 but i would love to see if you have any suggestions.
That looks great!!I would like one!
I think that would work great. I could use one too!
Hi, that unit looks like it can store alot of polish. Remember polish add weight and if this unit is filled with polish, the top may not be able to support all the weight. Be careful when you pick up this unit by the handle as the top may come off and your polish go crashing to the floor.

I bought a craft unit from jo ann fabrics to hold all my gp and now that unit is so heavy I had to put it on a luggage dolley to transport it.

It's fine when stationary, but when I lift it buy the handle I can see where it could break apart unexpected.

I prefer Handy boxes which I get from The Container Store. http://www.containerstore.com/shop?produ...=handy+box They're only $3.99 each for the ones that hold about 12-20 gel polishes. I keep all of one brand together in a box with a label. I then keep all my stuff in a Busy Box -http://www.containerstore.com/shop?productId=10000647&N=&Ntt=toy+box

In the photo of this item, where the person is holding it, it gives the storage container a very small appearance, its only 5.5 inches across and 5 inches deep in total with all of them hooked together. To me that seems like it wont hold many and I am not sure that polish shaped bottles will go very well. Could just be me. I use a sturdy clear case with handles the click to lock the lid on. I got mine at target for $8. I dont have a link. Sad

i agree with you sobeit that's why i started this thread so i can get more ideas. the handy boxes i think will fit better polishes but i haven't found any on ebay Sad.if any of you has a link i would be very pleased!

and the tops of those units absolutely come open when picked up and absolutely the bigger the unit and the more weight the more likely things will come spilling out when you grab and go by the handle
Here's what I did I went to Michael's craft bought decorative oblong boxes with different designs (per group colors) and lined them with foil (preserves the box). Have them stored in mobil units with drawers. These are more space friendly I think at least for me..... =~)
