Here is the third installment of my Amazon haul. I love getting something in the mail that isn’t a bill or junk, and when it is from my Amazon frenzy a couple weeks ago, I love it even more!
First, I got my clear rhinestones.
I use my clear stones more than any others, and I found these for 69 cents, free shipping. The reviews on them were mixed, but I wasn’t expecting Swarovski for that price. I am pleased with them. They came in ovals, kidney bean shape, rectangles, stars, teardrops, flowers, hearts, large circles, squares, bent teardrops, hearts, and small circles. There are lots in each compartment, and they will be great for all kinds of designs.
Second, I got my neon studs.
There are circles and squares in each of the six colors. The colors are very vibrant in person, so don’t let the picture fool you. These are very thin, so I think they will be great for nail art that I want to stay, because they won’t be jutting out really far from my nails.
Last, the crushed shells.
Clearly, there are lots of color options here, between pastel and bold. The pieces are nice and small, but not glitter. They all have a very beautiful iridescent sheen. To top it off, compared to name brand kits that run about $20, and you only get one color, I got 12 colors for about $3.
Have you used shells in any manis? Any tips before I go for it?
