“It’s amazing how something so small can totally change your work life,” says G Elizondo, a nail tech at D’Hair To Be Different in Las Vegas, who until recently did what everybody else does: She placed a colored dot on the lids of the jars housing her colored acrylic and glitter mixes. “The way they were stacked, I used to drop jars all day long,” she says. Then one day her client Diane Zurko suggested a better way. Instead of putting the dots on the lids, why not put them on the sides of the jars? “She pointed out that then they would sit on top of each other and you could actually fit more in the rack,” recalls Elizondo. “What a genius. I almost kissed her.”

Since making the switch a few months ago, spills are rare. “It’s truly a great set-up,” she says.
