Under Five Bucks…Suh-weet!

eBay Shopping Spree

Do you ever get the urge to spend money, but know you really shouldn’t?  I had that feeling one night, when I couldn’t sleep, so I hit eBay.  Not one particular seller to brag on, just excellent prices and finds!  Seriously, I got all of this stuff for less than five dollars and free shipping!

Nail Art Wheels

I got eight new wheels full of stuff.

I also snagged up these nail art magnets.  I have’t tried them yet to know how well they work, but the idea of them and the price made them worth a go.

Magnets for Nail Polish

Finally, I went bonkers on water decals.  I love using them!  When I found them for under ten cents, even Disney princess ones, I lost my mind!  (And let me tell you, I still have some on the watch list….I did show some self restraint.)

In closing, I would completely recommend eBay as a shopping source for nail art stuff.  Especially if you really don’t want to spend money (or shouldn’t spend money) it lets you feel like you got a bunch of stuff for nothing!

Thanks for reading!  I have some nail stuff to try!

Wax Picking Tool

Wax Picking Tool

As I have mentioned before, I love trolling eBay for deals and steals.  I got this dude for six cents, free shipping, HOLLA!  It is a picking tool for when you are trying to put on gems, studs, etc.  Typically I do this with a dotting tool, tweezers, or my fingers.  I find though that I don’t always get the placement I want when using those things.  When I found this for literally pennies, I thought I would give it a try.

It is about ten inches long, but did arrive broken…

Broken Picking Tool…so I finished the job.

Nail Art Tool

I peeled the paper off of one of the pieces, and sharpened it using a regular pencil sharpener.  With the heat of your hands, you can mold the tip if you need too.  Next, I tried picking up a few random things.  The pics are a little blurry, but you can see from fimo to studs to bows, it grabs it all!

Fimo Fruit Slice

I have not used this to apply anything to my nails yet, but just from this trial run, I believe I will be pleased.  I will let you know what I think after I use it.

Spring In My Step

Spring Pedicure

I am living in a place where it is sixty degrees one day and thirty the next, so I guess I thought that some spring-ish toes would help inspire the weather to be more consistent.

Sally Hansen Tickled Pink

For this I used Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Tickled Pink.  This is a beautiful light pink that needed about three coats to look completely opaque.  Then, I wanted to try out some new nail stickers I had ordered off of eBay.  (If you aren’t using eBay to get your nail art stuff, you should be.  You need to be willing to wait on free shipping, but a $2 shopping spree will get you loads of things.  I got ten sheets of nail stickers for 11 cents.)

I am not going to say that I love or hate the nail stickers.  I am wondering if I should have waited for the pink to be way dry before I applied them.  Can you see how they are up on the edges a bit?

Nail Stickers

I want to give them a couple more tries because they peeled off of the sheet easily and are cute.  So far, after a few days of wear, they are still on there, just have those edges that I would rather be flat.

Overall, I really like the pink and still see potential in the stickers, so will give them another go some other time.

Here’s to hoping Spring weather comes in time for Easter!
