Okay folks. I admit, that I am not a big online shopper, but the Amazon bug bit me. I found all kinds of deals, free shipping, add ons, and what not, and I couldn’t resist. I wanted to boost my nail art collection, but doing it through a beauty supply store is pricey! And since I only do this for me, I couldn’t justify spending that kind of cash on a hobby. That’s where Amazon came in. You can get all kinds of stuff on there for pennies. Not all of it is American made, though, so if that is a big thing for you, you will pay a little more. (Still less than a beauty supply store.)
Have I rambled enough yet?
Here is what I have gotten so far. (I apologize for the picture quality.)
These are some dried flowers that I ordered. I have dried my own flowers from home and used them in my nail art, but I wanted some really vibrant colors.
I hope you can see these. They are just teeny flowers. You cut off the pieces you want to use and attach them to polish that is still a little wet.
I really enjoy using fimo slices now and then. I think they are a nice pop of color and variety. This set did not disappoint. It is from Cheeky Beauty. I got ten wheels filled with all sorts of images.
*Note: This set is a little flower heavy, but that was my choice. I tried to get a little closer so you could see that the pictures are easy to make out and very bright. (The lighting just isn’t working for me!)
This wheel was NOT part of the set above. I ordered this separately, because in the Amazon pic, it was full of bright, recognizable fruits. That is not the case in reality. These are strange colored, fairly unrecognizable things. I will be able to use some, but overall, I was not impressed with this set.
This is a nice little carrier for nail stamping plates from Pueen. It reminds me of a little CD case. You just slide your plates in and there is no more worry about scratches. I also like that I can see all of the images without having to finger each and every plate…just turn the page.
NAIL STAMPING PLATES
I got two sets of stamping plates. The Pueen set came in a storage case, while the Mash set came individually packaged. Obviously, I have yet to dive into these and do some tests. (I will post when I do.) At first glance, I am super happy with them. The images have lots of variety and potential for creativity. I can’t wait to get started with them!
The last thing that came was some loose glitter. I didn’t feel a big need to post about it though. It’s glitter.
If you have questions or comments, I would love to know! Look for coming posts as things arrive and I test them out!
Thanks for reading! Ta-ta!
