With the hot weather, kiddos going on school break, and all of the upcoming summer holidays, the summer travel season is rapidly approaching. We're here to help you keep your nails lookin fly on your summer trips!
Our advice - BYOCC - bring your own Color Clutch.
We'll start with two things to keep in mind when considering your options:
1. How are you traveling?
Are you checking bags, just bringing a carry-on, taking a road trip, taking a train, subway, bus, maybe traveling on foot?
2. What are you going to do with your polish once at your destination?
Are you bringing the polish to paint your own nails, to use on clients, to display at a trade show or conference?
Now on to three ways to travel with your Color Clutch:
- For those of you who just NEED multiple options for yourself.
Fear Of Missing Out on foam.. or dare I say, FOAMo.
This option is for us polish-oholics who just need to bring a few polish options with us when we travel. Yes, Color Clutches hold 14 polishes, and yes, that is the perfect amount!
If you will be packing your Color Clutch in a suitcase or needing it to fit in a smaller space, this trick will solve your problems.
Did you know that you can remove the foam insert on the inside of your Color Clutch? If you remove the insert and leave the rigid case behind, you can slip the foam that holds your polish into a gallon-sized Ziplock bag! This will take up less space in your luggage AND keep your polishes safe.
- For those of you who will be displaying your polishes.
When traveling for nail-related trade shows, conferences, jobs, client meetings, etc., you can easily impress the crowds or clients by display your nail polishes in a Color Clutch. Even if you're not traveling with your polishes for work, you may just want to keep it in your sleek, pretty Color Clutch, right?!
Do any of those circumstances apply apply to you? This option is yours!
It's as easy as this - bubble wrap.
You can wrap your entire Color Clutch case in bubble wrap to give your polish extra protection. Especially when checking a bag, its nice to know that your Color Clutch won't be banging around in your suitcase in transfer; the bubbles will protect it!
Pro tip: double wrap with small bubbles, single wrap with big bubbles.
- For those of you who want to show off your beautiful Color Clutch
(or you just want to carry it instead of packing it away).
If you're only bringing carry-ons or just traveling on the subway or a car, you can use a clear tote bag to easily carry your cases and keep an eye on your beautiful polishes!
If planning to use this option for an airplane carry-on, don't worry, TSA shouldn't have a problem with it. Unless you have some mega-sized large polish bottles, your individual polishes will be below the max liquid amount limits.
As crazy as it may sound, the clear bag is a polish comfort blanket! It feels nice to be able to see your polishes and know where everything is. You can also spend some layover time or flight time checking out your polishes and planning out when you're going to use which colors.
We hope these options will help you with your summer travels! If you're a visual learner, the video above will show you how to execute all of the options.
