DIY Nail Polish Rack


Hey Scottsdale!

Nail polish racks aren’t just for the salon! Instead of leaving them haphazardly stored in drawers, ready to leak and spill, you can build your own rack and make a home for your nail polishes. Making your own rack will allow you to personalize it to your needs. You can make it as big or as small as you want and whatever color you please.


1” x 2” wood for the shelves and sides (1” width and 2” depth).

Screws (you will probably need about 24)

Dry wall anchors that support up to 75 lbs.

Hanging hooks

Wood glue

Nail filler

Sand paper



First, cut the wood to your width specifications. Lay them out, evenly spaced, on a flat surface. Four inches is a good width between shelves and will be enough for your tallest polishes.

Then screw all of the shelves into one side, and then the other. This will ensure that you keep everything proportioned and even.

Glue, then screw wood trim pieces to the front of each shelf to keep them from falling out the front. Then fill in al the screw holes with nail filler and sand it.

Now you can paint! Choose any color you like! But make sure it matches the décor of the rest of the room.

After the paint has dried, screw hanging hooks into the top corners of your nail polish rack.

Hang on the wall with your dry wall anchors, and you’re done! Place your nail polishes up on the rack for all to enjoy!
