How to Choose a Nail Polish/Powder Rack

Things To Consider Before Choosing a Nail Polish/Powder Rack or Display Shelf

Are you struggling to keep your nail polishes organized and looking good? Showcasing a neat and organized nail polish rack will make your salon's space look professional and beautiful. And if you opt for displaying the beautiful colors on your wall, you won't have to look for separate wall art.  

Well, there are a few things to keep in mind when deciding which nail polish rack is best for you. We offer some inspiration for turning your display cases into functional statement pieces. 

Color palette display

Displaying your polishes for your customers can be quite a colorful statement, or perhaps your salon or spa goes for a more muted, minimalist aesthetic. Either way you can have fun displaying your nail polishes according to your salon's aesthetics.  

How big is your collection, and will you be growing it? 

If you already have an extensive collection or plan to grow yours significantly, you will need to look into choosing a nail polish rack that will fit them all.

Do you need your collection to be portable? 

Perhaps you work from home and the salon, or your beauty therapists work in different rooms at different times and may require a nail polish display case that is easy to move to different locations. A wall rack may not be your best choice in these instances, but an organizational case with a handle will be perfect. 

Do you favor a brand of nail polish? 

Unfortunately, not all nail polishes have the same size and shape bottle. This is an important factor to consider when choosing your nail polish display rack. You don't want to choose the one you like only to find out that it doesn't fit your favorite nail polish brand. Consider the height and width of your bottles before purchasing your nail polish rack.  

Types of Nail Polish Racks

There are many nail polish/powder display shelves to choose from. Let's take a look at some of the popular options.  

Wall-mounted nail polish racks: These are simple, clean, and modern. Wooden nail polish wall racks are durable, long-lasting, and come in many different sizes. These tend to be more decorative.

Acrylic nail polish wall racks are either colored or clear, they are much lighter than metal ones, thus money wise, acrylic nail polish shelves are also much cheaper. Their simple and clear lines are able to make the nail polish colors really shine.  

If you have limited space in your salon and you only need to showcase about 100 or 200 polish/powder colors, those wall-mounted nail polish racks are the best option for you.
