Real Short Nails Storage

I've been working on packing to move. One day, I put all the boxes of my Kiss Everlasting French Real Short Length Nails together, and found I had this many:
Some are not completely filled but still, that's a lot of nails. I've been buying these for months, mostly every time there is a sale or I have a coupon.

A little bit about our move...
We're planning on fitting everything we are moving into one of these cubes. They aren't very big. We're selling most of our furnishings, and putting everything else into boxes and into this cube.

Well, we don't know when we'll see this cube again. It might go into storage for a couple of months. Or we might have it delivered shortly after we move. We just don't know yet.

I'm not packing my glue on nails or polishes. Those are coming with me in the car. It's a small car, and we laugh about how much stuff we want to take in the car. How it's going to be piled on top of our laps as we ride across the California desert.

With that in mind, I'm doing my best to consolidate what I have into something more manageable than what I have now.

After using up most of the nails in this Kiss 100 nail blanks package, I consolidated what remained into a new container, and kept this because I knew it would be used for something. Fimo, rhinestones, or other nails. I just didn't know.

Until now...
I sorted all the nails in all the French Tip Everlasting boxes into the empty container.

On the top row are 12's that fit on my left pinky (there were too many to fit in the end section) Left hand: thumbs, index, middle, ring, pinky nails.

Bottom row: Size 0's that can be cut down to fit either thumb nails. Right hand: Thumbs, index, middle, ring, and pinky.

I cut the top off one of the boxes to divide the pinkies from the thumb nails. And so I'd have the package number and nail length for reference.

So now, instead of having 8 boxes to carry with me, I have one, saving space and room in my little car.

This is what I ended up with, from the boxes:
I had used some of the nail files, cuticle sticks and glue from the packages already.

What do you think?
How would you move your polish collection if you had to?
What kind of container would you use?
Any tips?
Let me know in the comments below...

Great way to store them! I've moved all my polishes... and it was so scary! They, OF COURSE, went in the car with me... very close to me. I couldn't take the risk of putting them on a moving van. They filled two boxes and I individually wrapped each one in bubble wrap & tape. It was worth all the time it took!
I hope y'all's move goes well! :)

Thanks for your great tips Olivia! I'm glad I'm not the only one who worried about moving polishes when the time came. You came up with a great solution!
