An eBay haul- lovely nail art bits :)

In Monday's 52 week challenge post I mentioned that I have a few new bits and pieces from eBay to show you- I'm very excited about them because it's all nail art equipment that I've not tried before! :)

First up is what you saw on Monday, my striping tape! I got little 10 rolls for £1.27 from this seller. I got 2 gold rolls (one plain and one holographic), purple, red, pink, light pink, dark blue, white, silver and green :) I would've preferred a black roll instead of two gold shades, but I will use them for painting with anyway!

I found them quite easy to use on Monday, though I did keep losing the end (which is harder to find than on a normal sized roll of tape!)




I also bought a wheel of pearls- these came in a selection of different colours and shapes (and some random fimo slices thrown in for good measure) and I wish I had them for my Kawaii nail experiment! I'm not sure you can tell but there are some really cute pearls in here; tiny bows and hearts :) I love the pastel colours and I'm looking forward to using them. They were 99p from this seller (who has a tonne of other nail art things!)





The next purchase I made is for these lovely rhinestones- I know I already have some (thanks to my sister who bought a wheel, and the pound shop!) but these ones come in lots of different shapes- again I'm not sure you can tell, but there are hearts, stars, flowers, ovals, squares etc, all in lots of colours! These were also just 99p (for approx 2000 rhinestones) from this seller (another really awesome nail art seller)




And finally, the item I think I'm most excited about (especially now, after the Ciate/Caviar nails fiasco!) I got steel beads! I cannot wait to create my own fish egg manicure :p There are approx. 2000 beads, in some nice colours- and were also only 99p! From this seller :)




Are you a fan of eBay for nail art goodies? (I definitely am!) Although some of the items took a few weeks to arrive, I don't think you'd find them cheaper anywhere else, and they are worth the wait :)

    1. I did! A couple of items were quite slow, but they did come from Hong Kong, and we've had several Bank Holidays thanks to Easter- I'm still pleased with the delivery times :)
