I decided to shop to my heart's content at Born Pretty Store. It's my new favorite shop! They have, like, EVERYTHING for your nails, it's all really cheap, and the best part: FREE SHIPPING! You can even get 10% off your order using the code NCW21
I bought a large stamping plate, a roll of striping tape, a rhinestone wheel and a set of three striping brushes.

The stamping plate is CK-04 by a fauxnad brand called KandNail. This is only the second stamping plate I ever bought so don't expect me to be the expert, but I think it's pretty damn cool. The designs are etched deep enough and picking them up is easy, even I can do it. There are a lot of different designs, I chose a plate with full-nail designs but there are so many choices! You'll be seeing a lot of stamping 'round here :D
A while ago, I said I was stingy on using rhinestones because I didn't have that many. Consider that problem OVER! I'm drowning in rhinestones now :D I love this rhinestone wheel! There are 12 different colors and I want to make a rhinestone rainbow mani soooo badly! I love how tiny these are, just 2mm, a tiny bit smaller than the ones I already had.
I've been painting my hand drawn nail art with some old brush I found in my grandma's stash of craft supplies. It's been fine, but I've been curious about actual stripers. All three together only cost $2,29, a reasonable price for something I'm not sure about. I haven't had the chance to try them out yet but you can be sure I'll be able to tell you soon!
I've seen so many beautiful nails using striping tape, and I've tried to get by with cutting strips off of scotch tape, but it's just not the same. So I thought it was about time I got my own roll to try it out. I limited myself to one roll for now, but if I like it, I'll be sure to order some more because hey, no shipping fees!
My order came to about €11, that's about $14, with the ten percent discount. It took about two weeks to get here by mail. I'm very satisfied with what I got for my money. I think this is a great birthday present!
The Born Pretty Store has so many goodies and pretties in their shop, so just go check it out. And don't forget to get 10% off by using the code NCW21!
