You guys, Caboodles is still a thing. Yes that Caboodles from the 80’s when we were all young and could actually fit all or most of our makeup into one of these cute storage containers.
I remember mine. It was a hard purple case with two layers inside. It looked like a tackle box! So handy.
Caboodles is still around and still making cute and portable makeup and nail storage containers. Today I’ve got a new one called the Gilded Pleasure Nail Valet.
This pink and zebra striped valet holds 24 nail polish bottles (as long as they fit within the parameters within the removable grid.) The whole valet measures 10”L x 7”W x 6.5”H.
Zip her open and you see a super cute navy blue and white polka dot print. Inside the top layer you’ll find a mirror, 5 little pockets and a divided removable tray that is 2.5″ deep.
Once you remove the tray, underneath sits a 24 compartment nail grid, also removable. So then the question I was asking was, what types of bottles will fit into these squares?
In terms of width I easily fit Barielle, CND, Orly, Wet n Wild and Milani all in there no problem. I could even fit butter LONDON in there if I put them in diagonally. So the squares are pretty wide and can accommodate round bottles also.
But the height was trickier since the divided removable tray sits on top of this area. Generally nail bottles with a shorter cap were all fine. Orly and Wet n Wild, which are taller, didn’t fit with the tray sitting on top.
Availability: Walmart, Target, Meijer.
Did you own a Caboodles back in the day? Would you use this type of storage for your nail polishes?
