My Nail Polish Work Station
Hey friends, I wanted to share my nail polish work station with you. It’s better known as a polish chick battle station! When I first started doing my gel nails at home, I used my dining room table. This weekend, I decided to reclaim the dining room for meals and create a nice space for me to work on my nails. In case it needs to be said, all of the products mentioned in here have been purchased by me except the KBShimmer, which is a PR sample.
Nail Polish Work Station
Let me walk you through my setup. First, we have the iron frame desk. It’s 43.3”L x 16.9”W x 29.1”H and comes with an electric downdraft vent to suck away the filed off gel nail polish dust. It has a cabinet on each side that is lockable with 5 drawers. The desk came with a clip-on LED lamp and wrist rest. It’s the perfect size for me to store all my gel nail polish gear. This desk is currently on sale too, for 5% off. In front of it is my old armless purple chair, which has seen better days and I really need to replace soon.
On the right side of the desk we have my Makartt e-file. It’s an electric file that I have a ton of drill bits for. I use it to remove hard and soft gel nail polish. I currently use Orly Builder in a Bottle to create my nails. There’s also a Cloud LED Clip-On Light that can be turned warm or cool toned.
On the left side of the desk we have my Purple UV Nail Lamp and my mini Gooseneck Directional LED Light. The former I use for when I’m curing all of my hand at once with gel polish. The latter I use when I put on my Apres Natural Short Stiletto Tips. My desk also has a cell phone holder so that I can shoot nail videos.
Above the desk I have this 120 bottle nail polish rack.
The row above that is all of my Baroness X nail polishes. They’re mostly her fluid art nail polishes. I love them! I’ll be doing more fluid nail art soon.
The very top row is a mix of Kiara Sky, Orly, and KBShimmer nail polish. The second row down is all KBShimmer nail polish. The third row down is empty.
Favorites to Know
Orly’s Gel FX Top Coat is the best, shiny top coat for gel nail polish that I’ve found so far. I’m still searching for the perfect matte gel top coat.
My favorite nail polish remover is the Orly Genius Remover.
When I have natural nails, I prefer the KBShimmer Fillin’ Groovy Ridge Filler Base Coat.
My favorite top coat these days is the Holo Taco Super Glossy Taco Top Coat.
While I do have gel nail polish to experiment with, I tend to start with Orly Builder in a Bottle and Apres Natural Short Stiletto Tips. Then, I seal it with Orly’s Gel FX Top Coat. Finally, I apply regular polish and seal that off with Holo Taco Super Glossy Taco Top Coat.
So now you know where I now do my nails at home, as well as many of my favorite nail products. What do you think of my new nail polish work station? Do you have a beauty battlestation?
