Acrylic Storage #2


Hi ladies, I did a post on some acylic storage from eBay that I treated myself to just last week and I store my lipsticks in it now - you can see that post HERE if you're interested. I received some valuable feedback in the comments to this post; one of them was from Allie (see her blog HERE) who told me that because these types of sellers on eBay will do anything to avoid negative feedback (as would most sellers really) that I should drop them an e-mail mentioning the damage on my product, as she complained once and was sent a replacement free of charge so I had nothing to lose. The damage was just a couple of cracks in the plastic, no big deal really and I would have lived with it but I did drop them an e-mail about it and they asked for photo proof which I sent them and they kindly gave me a full refund for the product, postage included. So instead of £6.68 for a lipstick stand/holder which I thought was reasonable enough, it cost £0.00 - thanks for the tip Allie!
 
What bothered me more about this 'lipstick' holder was that it was advertised to be a 'lipstick and nail varnish holder' but is not at all big enough to hold a nail varnish bottle ..so a second useful comment I received was from Hannah (see her blog HERE) who directed me towards a post she had written herself on an acrylic nail varnish stand that she had bought from Amazon for less than £10.
 
Thanks to Hannah's post I bought myself the same stand from Amazon for £9.90 and you can find it for yourself HERE. A plus side to buying from Amazon as opposed to eBay is that the nail varnish stand was from a UK seller and it arrived in a matter of days, whereas the lipstick stand originated from Hong Kong (I think) and it took almost a month to arrive. This stand holds on average 30 nail polishes but this will vary depending on which bottles you are keeping it because, for example, OPI bottles are much larger and wider than Max Factor bottles. At the moment mine is holding exactly 30 nail varnishes and I'm considering buying a second stand soon because it's a reasonable price, is an attractive way of storing nail varnishes and easily helps you to choose a colour instead of having to root around in a big old box or bag. It also reminds me how many varnishes I actually own and how I don't need to buy any more any time soon!

  10. I'm so glad the post was useful to you! I love my storage now - although I thought it'd stop me buying polishes that didn't fit in it and it really hasn't, I have a little collection growing around the stand! xxx
