Winstonia August Grab Bag

New month, new grab bag!

Winstonia's August Grab Bag, available here, contains the following:
Before I get into the details of the contents, here's my design using the ceramic flower charms!

Here's the breakdown of the nail art. My thumb, middle finger, and pinky finger are a base of Strumming My Nails (Sation) with Fairy Dust (China Glaze) on top. My ring finger is the ever-gorgeous Storm (Zoya), and the base of my index finger is Black Onyx (OPI). I painted the flower on my middle finger using Alpine Snow (OPI) and outlined it with Black Onyx.

Now let's talk details of a few of the pieces.

The ceramic nail charms aren't hard, as the word ceramic sounds (to me). They're pliable and feel a bit like Play-Doh. Each has a rhinestone in its center. The one I placed is the largest, and they get smaller from there.

The faux stones are a bit of a disappointment to me, but only because they're not flexible, and my nails are too small for them to lay flatly. Too bad. I have pretty tiny nail plates though.

I haven't tried the nail foil stickers yet, but they seem nice. And the glue is always helpful.

But okay...eyeliner stickers?! I've never heard of this before, but this clearly doesn't gain its popularity in the U.S., as indicated by the all-Japanese labeling. There's literally no English on the package, so fending for myself, I tried applying the sticker to my clean, oil-free and makeup-free eyelids. I didn't have much luck. It stuck...sort of. But it looked like a sticker on my eyeliner. Not a good look for me, so I'll spare you the pictures.

  1. Violent Lips (and specifically violent eyes) is a similar concept to the eyeliner sticker ( and they're actually really cool. It's a neat way to get a really intricate looks (think flags for 4th of july) and after the initial weird feeling you don't really notice them.

  2. I didn't think I would did those flowers (I'm always a little sceptical about 'chunkier' 3D things) but it looks so cute on you. Nice that they're pliable, too. Totally agree about the stones thing - I have little to no patience for stuff that's too big to lie flush with my nails. I'm in the UK and I have seen eyeliner transfers/stickers here - by Eye Rock, from Nail Rock, which was one of the first nail wrap brands I heard of - but I've never used them nor seen them used by anyone else.
