DDG DIY: Nail Polish Magnet Board

Ladies, it’s DIY time! If you’re looking for something fun (and clever) to do this weekend, then give this nail polish magnet board a go.

The idea came to me after I raided our office beauty shelves and realised there were a mass of varnishes that never seemed to see the light of day but so deserved some kind of spotlight. Now there’s no excuse not to utilise every single little bottle of lacquer. It’s genius, I tells ya.

So if you’re a polish-hoarding-maniac (just like me!), then follow this easy-as-pie tutorial to create your own magnet board and get the mani party started!

I like 2pac and lipstick and using the word 'lol' when I have nothing else to say. Lol.

What a brilliant idea! I have so many polishes that my collection really is perfect for this. Love your colour coordination


wow, love love love this idea!!


What a great idea! Thanks for the DIY tutorial! 🙂


Such a perfect idea, I am a nazi for having everything I own on display so this is perfect to know what colours you already have/have too many of/don't have enough of


I know!! I love displaying everything, from scarves to handbags to lipsticks - I mean, we own them because they're pretty, right?! 😀


This is such a good idea, I keep all my nail polishes in a container and it's always such a hassel finding the shade I want, this way they're all laid out before me!


I'm considering doing this for a selection of my most-used cosmetics, why leave it to just nail polish hey?! Thanks for this inspo DDGD 🙂


I need one for all my lipsticks! Stat!


This is such a good idea. I have too many bottles for my own good, and this would make life SO MUCH easier.


I wish I had this many colours of nail polish ! I pretty much only own reds, blues and french manicure colours - will need to invest in some more so I can do this and create a rainbow !!


Hahaha so clever!! What a great idea!! Doubles as wall art and clears the clutter from the bathroom cabinet! 🙂 i have a whole rainbow of colours, so this will help me work out which ones I never wear anymore and that should be thrown away 🙂


I tried one with an OPI polish and it just slid right off.. does it matter on the weight of the polish? (I'm still determined to make it work!)

They have to be good strong magnets, that's the trick 🙂


I wish I owned that many nail polishes!


OMG I love this idea. 🙂


this is such an awsum idea, looks great and very useful


Great idea! I live in earthquake country-California and when we had the last one which was a 5.1, some of my polishes tipped over on their shelves. Luckily only 2 broke, but now I have them all in boxes, not good. So definitely trying your idea out! Thanks!


im so doing this


although possibly with strips of board, so i can border my walls, or something


This is just the most amazing idea!! I have at least 3 shoe boxes filled w nail polish bottles! I would have saved so many of them of dripping all over the place if I saw this before! 🙁


Hi I tried this idea too, all of my nail polishes slid off too. However I purchased 'extra strong magnets' for it

Where did you both purchase the magnetic board from? As I think the cheap board may be the issue with mine

The nail polishes won't stay on the board... They slid down knocking each other off. We even put on extra magnet pieces. Help!! We were going to use this idea for my daughter for mother's day. Her 3 girls are helping. It's from her daughters to her.
