Color Clutch | The Nail Polish Case for Storage and Travel

//product provided to me for editorial consideration//

Whether you own a nail polish collection that can rival the best of the polish blogging goddesses or you prefer to possess a carefully curated collection of a few, perfect-for-you shades, storage of those nail lacquers can be a real issue.

I don't know about you but I like my polishes to be neatly tucked away, properly organized and easy to access. Whether I have a hankering to go stash diving for just the perfect polish to do my current manicure or I am planning to travel and want to pack up some polish colour options to take with, my Colour Clutch Nail Polish Case is just what the doctor ordered for safe, compact storage of some of my cherished polishes, at home and away.

Available in black, white and a special, limited edition purple Jamberry style, the Color Clutch is a sturdy, sleek... dare I say elegant, heavy duty paperboard case with a magnetically secured, swing up lid that has a flexible window for easy viewing of your pretties within. The case is a neat, compact 10 X 9 X 2 inches, about the dimensions of a good, thick book. The Color Clutch can sit on a shelf, lying down or upright, with the striped spine or the other, blank end showing. You can choose what is best for you and your needs.

When you lift the lid of the Color Clutch you will see a velvety topped dense foam bed with precisely engineered bottle shaped spaces cut into it. The spaces have a unique below the surface area at the top and bottom so that polish bottles of just about any size, length or shape can be easily and safely snuggled into their spot. One polish brand I can't get to fit, label facing up is Butter London. It's just a bit too wide but it can be slipped into a spot, standing on edge and is still secure and safe. The only polish size that, in my experience doesn't work in the Color Clutch are minis. They can go into the spaces, even be tucked in under the surface but they want to move around too much and they aren't that secure. Okay, I know what you're thinking and don't you dare even ask me about Christian Louboutin, you smartass. I don't own any of that brand and, well, duh.

The bottles fit in nice and snug but they aren't squeezed so tight that they are in danger of the bottle failing under pressure. Once my polishes are properly secured, I can pick the Color Clutch up, turn it upside down and, lid swinging open, shake-shake-shake the case and my polishes do not fall out. Some shift slightly but not even one comes loose or is in any danger of falling and breaking.

 The Color Clutch has a very cool feature that makes choosing the exact polish you want, fast and easy. On the spine of each case is a white strip on which you can swatch each bottle, in order of their position inside the case. If you decide to rearrange, add or remove colours, the acetone safe material makes it easy to clean off old swatches and replace them with new.

My only gripe about the Color Clutch is that I can't afford to buy enough of them to house my entire polish collection. How splendid would it be, to have all of my polishes arranged by brand, collection and colour progression, all tucked safely away and lined up neatly on sturdy shelves, like rows of perfectly matching books, all at my fingertips? *sigh* Now, that's a neat freak's dream scenario!

Erika! Wake up! It's time to go to school!

I really like my Color Clutch Nail Polish Case and I have some cherished, very hard to find polishes that need safe storage who are going to live in it. Will I buy more? You bet your ass I will! As my budget allows, of course.

Do you own any Color Clutch cases? Please tell me that you love them as much as I do! If you think that you'd like to pick one or more up to help wrangle your polish collection into a neat, organized unit, you can find them on the Color Clutch website, and The Container Store.

  3. I desperately need storage for nail polish and this would be ideal. I just have way too many though but at least I could put my favorites safely away in these.

  4. This would be so much better than me putting my polish in bubble wrap and then in a box for travel. :) This way I get to see them all.

  6. I throw all of my polishes in a three tier apothecary jar, and others in a multi-tier drawer. So I never know where any particular color is. The Color Clutch is a fabulous solution especially for ones' favorite polishes. I need to put this one my list, and like you wrote, it could be for my special polishes

  13. I really think I'm beyond the level where a storage box for a dozen polishes is going to do anything for me, lol! It's a cool idea though!
