Oh, Caboodles, I have loved you since I toted around a pastel pink plastic box stuffed full of Lip Smackers! I’m happy Caboodles are still around, and I’m especially happy that they came out with a new product: the Gilded Pleasure Nail Valet.
A mirrored lid and five elastic top pockets in the lid keep manicure supplies separated and secure. The horizontally divided, removable, 2.5″ deep tray is perfect for housing polish remover, cuticle oil, hand cream and any other mani-pedi must-haves. In the base is a removable 24-compartment grid divider where 24 pretty nail polishes nest neatly in four rows of six. The Gilded Pleasure Nail Valet Caboodle is compact and sleek at 10″ L x 7″ W x 6.5″ H
I’m always painting my nails, but hate that my top coats and files and everything else are always all over the counter. I thought this would be the perfect solution for that, plus it is so travel friendly! I don’t see myself hauling 24 bottles of nail polish with me somewhere, but hey, you never know, right?
Here’s the top part of the valet, which is removable. I put the contents of my Vivo Per Lei kit in here, along with some nail polish remover pads, glass nail file, Poshe Cuticle Cream, and a Zoya Color Lock kit (mini size). There’s still plenty of room, too!
Here’s how it looks opened up. In the top, I have two nail files and one dotting tool, even though there’s still room for more.
Here’s the bottom, where the nail polish is stored. This compartment holds 24 bottles, but they have to be on the short side. OPI, China Glaze, and Revlon are all too tall to be stored in here. Essie, MAC, Zoya, and NARS all fit just fine. I haven’t tested other ones out yet, but I’m sure Maybelline Color Show would fit in here just fine as well. Right now, I only have a few polishes in here: Dior Princess, MAC Comic Cute, NARS Orgasm, and Zoya Mickey. I also have my Out the Door top coat, Essie Matte top coat, and the Essie Feed Me base coat in here (though that is not pictured). I haven’t decided what other colors to put in here yet. I think I’m going to put some that I want to wear and just switch them out as needed.
Overall, the case is very sturdy and cute! I like that I can keep all of my manicure stuff in one little case but still have options for colors as well.
What do you think of this case? I purchased mine from Meijer for $23, but they are also available at Wal-Mart and Target.
