I just wanted to post a quick review on a product I purchased on a whim, and ended up loving! The Bundle Monster: Nail Art Stamping Plates Storage Case Organizer in Crocodile Black. I got two of these for Christmas, one as a gift to me (from Jon) and one as a gift for my SIL.
The case is sleek black leatherette, with a raised crocodile finish. It has a zipper that closes around.
Inside are sheets that have 6 pockets, and each pocket hold 2 plates, to give you a total of 12 plates per page. The description says it can hold a total of 168 plates.
Currently in my binder I hold Konad, Bundle Monster (2 sets), MASH and miscellaneous including a small amount of Gals and E-Bay plates. Even with all those plate sets I still have room to grow. My Nail Craze & full size DRK plates don't fit because they are much too large (NOTE: the ruler style DRK does fit in the front/back by the cover). And although I don't own any square plates like the Essence ones, they don't look like they would fit either.
Two pages within my binder still had the top 2 slots sealed shut, which means a total of 4 squares, and space for 8 plates were unusable. I needed to take a knife and cut them open. I wasn't overly thrilled about that, but thankfully most of the cuts were clean, little was damaged, and the space was once again usable. Here's a picture of the small amount damage done (thankfully only one slot):
I love having my plates stored in this fashion. I love that I can see every plate, without having to go though one by one, and virtually no fear of damaging wet/damp nails. Despite my pages being sealed, I still highly recommend this product.
Before I got this storage case I was using a small round Tupperware container, which worked fine over the last 2 years, but I am starting to out-grow it. I also know a lot of nailphiles make their own plate storage binders using card/photo holders. I used to see post about this on MUA back in the day, but I haven't seen any in the last little while.
How do you store you plates? also anyone have advice for the larger Nail Craze plates? Currently mine are kept in a plastic baggie within the bag they were packaged in.
Thanks for reading!
Have a great day,
