for all the nail polish-addicts
i'll admit i'm a Nail polish addict, only until now i always had to stuff them in a box. but this had a few problems: it's really bad for your polishes, it's so hard to find what you want and although my box was pretty big it was to small and i couldn't close it anymore. so i went on my dear old youtube and i did some research. i found that i liked stands a lot so i made a plan....
