Last week I talked about my current
obsession interest in nail polish racks (see Casee Covets #1) and how I had quickly snapped up this one for a very reasonable price after looking high and low online to no budget-friendly avail. The specific item on Amazon that I purchased is no longer available, but fortunately this seems to be the exact same product.
Well, obviously my nail rack came this week! Very efficient shipping. Upon preparing to mount it on the wall, though, my enthusiasm was vastly deflated. Straight from the box I saw that the acrylic was foggy with permanent fingerprints (not mine), as well as plenty of exposed glue that contributed to an overall inexpensive (dare I say, “cheap”) look. But, you know, it was cheap, comparatively, and you get what you pay for. I took a bit of glass cleaner to it, and I’m sure it did nothing to help, but when I held it up against the wall I realized that the fogginess completely disappeared from notice, and the exposed glue would be under the bottles of nail polish anyway, out of sight. The result, I think, is pretty snazzy. Take a closer look after the jump.
So while I was thinking that I wouldn’t recommend this one due to its low quality, it actually gained quite a bit of merit, this little thing. I’m really quite fond of it. I took the opportunity to narrow down my collection, tossing a few old polishes, and I think I ended up with about seventy bottles, plus another thirteen or so of top coats, strengtheners, etc. And there’s still plenty of room! It held all of my bottles from various brands perfectly – OPI, Essie, Butter, Zoya, Piggy Polish, Orly, Revlon, Urban Decay, Ulta and so on. The only thing that didn’t fit was my nail polish remover, but I keep that in a closet anyway.
All that’s to say, if you’re thinking about getting a nail polish rack and you’re willing to put up with a little bit of straight-from-the-box, what-was-Casee-thinking panic, the Fuji Nail Polish Rack for $32 will give you organization and a touch of glam.
