My New Konad Image Plate Holder!

I always feel unorganized and out of sorts after an exam and have the urge to clean and organize my life. I've been working on doing a better job with my polish collection. I purchased another Melmer, but I still feel like the walls are caving in on me with nail polish. I guess some would call that a beautiful nightmare :)

So I was browsing through Target today and found this in the office section for 5 bucks. It's a mini-organizer rotating device. I thought this would be perfect to store my growing image plate collection.

I was using these plastic storage containers and separated them by Konad, Fauxnad, Delaney & Bundle Monster.


At first I was a little worried because the holder was a lot bigger than it looked in the store. Have you ever purchased a TV in-store and then get home and realize its huge! That's how I felt when I put my little image plates and polishes inside. They just sank to the bottom.



After a while I found the, almost, perfect solution to my sinking issue: two polar bear nail buffers (ha ha). They elevated the polishes to the perfect level.


And here's the result. I love my new little device. I feel more organized now and I can easily sort through the image plates to find the ones that I need.

What are you using for storage? Do you think you would like this gadget?

  6. That's awesome. I'm currently using a recycled round metal candle container. I purchased some soy candles from a school fundraiser & they came in round tins with lids. So, I burned the candle away and placed them in there. Works well for now, but I have to take them all out to see what one I want to use.

  7. @TrailerHood Chic, that was a great idea. i purchased a few tins during the Holiday season. i didn't think to put image plates in there.

    some stampers use baseball card holders or business card holders. they look like photo albums and allow you to quickly flip through pages.

  9. That looks nice :) And yeah, know the feeling of coming home and realizing something is way bigger, lol.

    I'm using a businesscard folder, so it's like a little book where I can easy browse through all my plates :)

  10. I'm also using a business(or credit)card album. It's just the right size for konad and BM plates...

  11. I definitely need to do something now that I'm starting to get more plates. Right now they're scattered in various boxes, which is no good at all.
