Around last November I discovered Ebay. I knew the site for quite some time, but I never really bought anything. Especially because I always searched in the Belgian site and I thought things were quite expensive. Until a friend of mine told how she bought things for only one dollar without shipping fees. I was still quite reluctant because I hadn't found anything like that! But later that evening I remembered her telling she bought things in DOLLARS. And then I understood: dollars, not euros. American site, not Belgian site! And then a whole new world opened for me and this is what happened...
I started by buying some basic stuff: some pearls, some nail stickers, some studs. When all that was bought, I started ordering things I wasn't planning to buy. I warn you: this post is quite long... :D
I had always wanted to try such foils, so I immediately bought four of them. I haven't been using them YET, but I already have an idea how to use them: I think I'm gonna search for my old French manicure stickers and instead of a white tip, I'm gonna do a foiled tip :D
I had something different in mind when I ordered this, but I believe I will be able to make something pretty with these little pieces of golden and silver foils. They're a little "stubborn" so you can create a cool relief with it. You can get these quite cheaply if you search for "Nail Art Gold & Silver Foils" or something similar, and on auction they start from only 0.99 for 12 pots!
I have always loved pearls: I own twenty pairs of different earrings, bracelets, etc. So when I saw these little beauties I just had to buy them! I have a nail art in mind featuring these, so maybe you'll see them passing by on my blog in a while :D
Aaaah, Tinkerbell! Who doesn't love her?! The moment I saw these stickers I just had to have them! This shop has lovely stickers, which are a little more expensive than "basic" stickers, but the designs are really worth it! :D
A friend of mine loves making nail arts with bows, so thanks to her I started loving them and, again, I just had to buy them as soon as I saw them! :D
I love glitters. They are a nice add to any nail art. I currently own quite some glitters, but hexametric glitters were still missing. Until now (;
I loooove moustaches on nails! But unfortunately I can't paint perfect ones, so these stickers are a lifesaver!
When I saw these, I really wanted them a lot. But ever since they've arrived, I just can't stop thinking "why for Christ's sake did I buy this?". I just have nooo idea why to use them because I never play cards or anything and another theme is quite impossible to make with those. We'll see, maybe I'll use these someday.
I already own some templates and every time I use one I think it's such a pain in the ass to use. The result is never how I want because the paint dried a little etc. So I have no idea why I got so enthusiastic when seeing these.
Flowers are such beautiful things. So when I saw those, I just had to buy them. I'm really starting to sound repetitive, but that's actually what I thought every time I saw something beautiful. :p These flowers are cool, but also quite big, so I think I will certainly get annoyed by them, if they don't fall off first. I'm gonna put nail glue on my wish list when finishing writing this post. I really think I'll need good glue for these little beauties. :p
I already have worn silver foils which made it look like as if I was wearing a bad mirror on my nails, which I had bought at Asos. I really loved the effect, so when I saw these golden ones I immediately bought them. When I received them they were folded in half, which I found a really weird way of dealing with these foils... Fortunately they aren't damaged and I hope they'll be as good as my silver ones.
I really love these little faces, but I have noooo idea when to use them. But still I don't regret buying them; they're quite unseen before (well, at least to me) and I think I'll find something to be able to use them.
I looooove these zippers! I do believe it will be a little tricky to make the perfect separation between the zipped part and the underground, but we'll see how it will become :D
Some neon studs I've been wanting for a while. I now realise there's not that many of them in the package, but I was too lazy to order every colour separately... :p
Of course I also had to buy some neutral studs :D
I fell in love with these shells as soon as I saw them! :D Beach themed nails anyone?
These are my precious ones from all of my purchases. :D This is also another reason I need that good nail glue because I really don't want to lose one of those! They're so pretty...
I looooove candy! That's why I just had to buy these fimo slices. :D I own some fimo sticks, but I haaate cutting slices off because they always end up way too big. The slices in this wheel are really thin, just perfect :D
I do regret some of my purchases, but overall I'm happy with what I've bought. Finally I can do some more extreme manicures. And now I also have more time to do those mani's. Just wait and see! :D
What do you think about my purchases? :D
