One of the things I seem to be obsessed with right now is nail varnish. I buy one and seem to instantly find another I want to buy - so my small(ish) collection is ever growing! As you can see from the picture below, I'd been keeping my nail varnishes is a plastic zip up Clinique bag - I can't for the life of me remember where I got this, I think it came with an eye themed set I bought awhile ago. The varnishes were already teetering on the edge of this bag and the recent addition of my Barry M Chameleon varnishes meant I definitely needed something new.
Then the other day I was walking past a Store Twenty One and spotted some cute storage boxes in the window. They had a quite a good range of designs and sizes and I ended up coming away with the two boxes below. You can tell they're not the best quality in the world, but they're decent enough! The smaller box was a bargain £1.99 and the larger box £2.99. The small box opens upwards on a hinge using a pretty bit of ribbon, whereas on the bigger box it has handles on the ends and the lid just comes straight off.
I LOVE the colour of these and the vintage type pattern. My boyfriend and I have been thinking we'll re-decorate our bedroom soon and now I've got my heart set on this pale shade of turquoise combined with cream/white. Not the most manly shade, but he'll get used to it I'm sure... :-)
I've almost already filled up the small box, but I've always got the bigger one for when space runs out! I might even go back and get another small one, then I can split my varnishes between the two and use the bigger one for makeup (or vice versa). On a different note, I'm not sure why the ribbon between the lid and the actual box is only on one side, but they were all like this, so it's a mystery!
What I really like about these boxes is that they're cheap yet nice to look at, plus they're really practical- easy to store on top of one another wherever you have space.
You can't seem to view or buy Store Twenty One's range of storage online, but they do have a store locator if you fancy seeing if there's a store near you. To go to their website, click here.
