My New Wall Mount Nail Polish Display!

Hey everyone! I finally found the perfect wall nail polish rack last weekend. : )
I asked Vannie where to find one and she took me to a Vietnamese beauty supply store in Portland, Oregon.

I put up a few of the polishes I had in one box to show you what it looks like. :D I am going to organize and fill it up with the rest of my polish stash!
We navigated our way through the supply store and found 3 different styles! I picked the one that held 90 nail polishes. :D  You do need a cosmetology license to purchase in the beauty supply store at the wholesale price. My family and relatives owns nail salons (surprise, surprise) so I grew up speaking Vietnamese while shopping at Viet owned beauty supplies stores. If you sound like you know what you're talking about, you could pass for a nail tech. lol
I got a fantastic deal because they sell online/Ebay for around $60-70 with shipping.  I did my research on this one!  I was hesitent to order online because some of the nail displays have print on them, saying "Nail Polish Station" in red...so yeah..no. I just wanted the basic, clean, clear polish holder. I'm so happy to have a simple acrylic wall mount to hold my nail polishes! I need to get another one because I ran out of space already!

If you're interested in getting a nail polish display like mine, I would suggest calling your local nail beauty supply shops.  If you're from Chicago, IL,I know there are a lot of Viet owned nail supply shops on Argyle Street in Viet town.  I used to take trips with my parents all the time growing up in Michigan.  Don't forget to bring your cosmotologist friend or family member! I remember in Chicago they wouldn't sell at the wholesale price without proof of a cosmetlogy license.

Van and I will find out how much shipping will cost in the US, and maybe she can help get one for you if you are in the market.
E-mail me if you're interested nguyenst@msu.edu and I can try my best to help!

 Homer says, "Nice Wall Mount Nail Polish Display!"
It's made from high quality acrylic. I would say the quality is not as fabulous as my Clear Cube, but it's a step up from my the acrylic on my MUJI 5 Drawer Storage Units. I hope that's helpful to you.
 It comes wrapped in bubble wrap, with styrofoam on the 4 corners, and in this white box.
You don't need to mount it on the wall, but I wanted to save space.
It doesn't come with screws, so be sure to pick up 4 if you plan on mounting your new nail polish rack! :D 
Thank you my handy boyfriend! :)
 My OPI & Nicole by OPI polishes take up a full rack!  I will share more photos with you in the near future. We're still in the unpacking process! Have a fantastic Friday, and a wonderful weekend!

p.s. I think my comment section is fixed now. I was playing around with the settings, but somehow I disabled all comments. : / I'm so not internet savvy. lol

  5. @Pong E-mail me if you're interested! :)

  9. I definitely need to get my hands on one of these! I've been thinking of different ways to store my polishes more efficiently, but I need to find it at a good price.. Everything in Canada is significantly more expensive than in the states :(
