DIY Nail Polish Storage Jars

I've never committed to a single storage option when it came to my nail polish. They've gone from baskets to containers to old makeup bags until they've finally found their rightful home in the cutest form of storage I've ever seen nail polish stored in. The best part about this DIY... it's so versatile! You don't have to just limit these beauties to the storage of nail polish. Keep candy in them. Or hair bows. I'm not the jar police. I like keeping my nail polish in these jars because they look really cute displayed on my shelf.

Here's how to make the jars pretty:

What You'll Need:
An empty glass jar w/ lid (may that be a spaghetti sauce, salsa or pickle jar... it does not matter!)
Spray paint (color of your choice)

What You'll Need To Do:
Peal the wrapper off your empty glass jar then give it a good rinse, including the lid.
*Having trouble getting the pesky wrapper residue off? Cover the sticky area with coconut oil and let sit for a minute. The sticky residue should be able to wipe off with a rag and warm water!*
Clean? Great!
Take the lid, spray paint and some old news paper to a well ventilated area (preferably out doors).
Spray paint the lid.
Let the lid dry.
Dry? Amazing!
Fill jar with nail polish (or anything you'd like).
Close the jar.
Bask in the beauty that is a recycled sauce jar.
Instagram it and show it off to your friends.

It's that easy.

My nail polish storage jars have their rightful home on my shelf and they look absolutely adorable.

It's super easy and it's recycled, who doesn't like helping the environment?
