Ta Da!! The Polish Room

The Polish Room (aka All Lacquered Up’s Office) – I’ve been talking about this for months now, ever since we found our new house. And as much as I love all the rooms in our home, this one is definitely my favorite. My pride and joy. Yes, it’s an open declaration of my fanaticism with all things lacquer but my friends love me enough not to judge.

We had our housewarming party on Saturday which finally got me motivated to hang my vintage nail ads and complete the room’s transformation from den to polish heaven. A couple of my pals from the MUA nail board came over to join the festivities and play.

My desk and indoor light studio

The storage cabinet. This was only 2/3 full when I originally debuted it back in January. It’s overflowing now.

A vintage Cutex ad, my OPI Train Case filled with treatment products and my Zoya polish cases.

Products to be reviewed. I’m a bit backlogged.

The All Lacquered Up mascots; an OPI Piggy (courtesy of DQ2) and a Trade Secret holiday bear.

    I am SO, SO impressed by the amount of product…you have me beat by at least a couple shelfs (and for me, they’re comprehensive beauty products).

    Michelle, congrats on getting all settled into your new place!

    Your “Polish Room” is awesome. Love the lavender wall and vintage ads :)

    Great room! Is your husband allowed in there or is it “girls only” lol.

  10. jdbsusanna says:

    Wow! Impressive!

  11. Melanie says:

    The room looks great! I love the vintage ads and you are smart to keep your polishes stored in bins away from direct sunlight. I am sure it must be tempting to have wall racks like a salon, but you must preserve the preciousness! LOL

    I love the paint job! I wish I had space in my apartment for beauty stuff. :( Perhaps someday I will have that dream bathroom/dressing area…

  13. Kellie says:

  14. Kimberly says:

  15. Lauren Bevan says:

    Can we see inside the cases? to see how the nail polishes are stored and to have a nose at the colours hiden inside xxxx

    Awesome room! I was wondering, is the white box with the two lamps on each side what you use to take nail photos? If so, where can I find them(box/lamps)? It would help alot:) thanks and no lie, I visit your blog/website everyday just too see your swatches! :)

      I used to use the light box a couple years ago when I posted this but I’ve stopped because I found that it dulls the finish of the polish in photographs. A light box is great for photographing products but not nail polish on nails but that’s just my opinion. If you search for “light box” in the photography section of ebay you’ll find a lot of options for sale.
