Nail Polishes, Pincurls Clips, Bobbypins... Oh my!!!

 "The girl just kept cleaning?! " - Unknown

Hello Vintage Lovers!
Since Im in the beauty business, I have to be very organized with my tools.Making them look neat , and pretty to the eye. So I hate organizers that are plain.... ugly...and none vintage! Although some store did come out with a 'shabby chic' organizer ...but I didnt want anything that some one else has.
So I created a solution ... vintage of course!
My 3 problems was bobby pins, pin curl clips, and nail polishes.... they can be a tad bit messy when you dont know where to put them at.
Here Is my solution:

1) Nail Polishes ( For those who display them)

Vanity Trays

How does it look: Chic!

2) & 3) Pin curl Clips & Bobby pins
(I don’t like to combine my pin curl clips with my bobby pins. I like to keep them separate.) And if it does come with a box... it’s often not pretty enough to display)

Solution: Vintage Candy Tins & Powder Jars
(I do recommend sanitizing and disinfecting them) haha!!

How does it look: Like a girl who like to organize smart!

How does my vanity at the Powder Room Look Like:
A Success!!

Hope this was helpful!
Have any questions?

  2. You would put them on your vanity display... even like putting it in your dresser....
    you can get those pretty boxes in like ebay or a flee market.

  3. Thankyouxx

  4. I love the idea of storing bobby pins in vintage containers! It's a great excuse to invest in a bunch.(:


  5. I'm in the process of organizing my vanity in a similar way. Great inspiration!


  6. Adorable! I was just at an antique store today and did not buy anything as that idea had not popped into my head! I know for next time! Thank you!

  7. Great ideas! I've also seen people store their nail polish in vintage spice racks but this is a much chicer look :)

  8. I just discovered your blog and it's amazing :). I love to see there are more teenagers/young adults out there that love vintage as much as I do. You have very much nail polish ;).Would you like to follow my blog, too ?

  9. Oh! The jars re just so cute, I'm a bit obsessesed with jars and have them everywhere in my little apartment ^^

  10. I love your vanity storage solutions. SO CHIC and CLASSY. I have that same 1940s vanity tray and I store my perfume bottle on it. You make me want to paint my bedroom the palest shade of pink, but my husband would probably have a fit if I even recommended it to him.

  11. This article is really good, I like it so much, there are some nice things you share in your blog. Damiana
