Quick store review
Shipping was rather quick, only 15 days from placing my order to arriving at my doorstep. They packaged everything in a bubble-wrap-lined envelope and fragile products were carefully wrapped again in bubble wrap. I accidentally contacted them for tracking number after they sent it to me once before, and got back to me the very next day. I've contacted them on another occassion and again received response the next day. Overall a good experience, quick service and shipping, and the prices are very cheap! They also offer free shipping on all orders, how awesome is that?? I'll be ordering from them again in the future. I hope you guys will check them out too for all your nail art needs :)
x3 Cleansers for gel nails. I'm almost out of my IBD cleanser so this was a good opportunity to stock up.
x1 Set Nail art brushes. I keep losing my brushes so this was a good time to stock up! I opted for this set since it has a good array of sizes, but I'm not sure I'll be using the biggest brush, because it's gigantic! Much too big for my nails anyways lol
x1 UV Top Coat. I also lost my Seche Vite UV topcoat some time ago. I hope this one will be an okay replacement until I get a new one! I'll try this out with regular polish as well to test the lasting power.
x4 Super gorgeous uv builder glitter gel. I'm stupid excited to play around with these!
Dazzling Pink, Dazzling Green. Isn't the green just gorgeous?! It looks more blue though, very true to in person :) Same with the pink, where it looks more purple, but still so pretty!
Shimmer White, Dazzling Gold. I love the popular look of glitter base 3D nails which I'm hoping to achieve with this gel. The gold looks as though it has more green/blue hues in sunlight, but it's just gold!
Closer to true color, but you can still see the green!
x1 UV clear gel. Running low on gel since I've been using the IDB starter kit and they are pretty tiny! Lasted me a good long time though, so this should last me forever haha.
x1 set of 500 clear nail tips. I don't know how to build my own tips yet so I use these plastic tips. Easy to work with and I don't have to worry about running out for a while :D
I'm so excited to do my nails again, it's been a long time! Here's some videos that have inspired me and getting me so excited to play with nail art! ミテミテミテ！
For the Tsubasa lovers, she's featured in the videos too as a guest <3 As well as competing is my nail artist idol Harada Ayano-san <333
My favorite video of the bunch featuring Harada-san's nail genius! I really, really want an airbrush kit now >w<
My order from JewelMint arrived today! It took a while because apparently there was an error in their system for everyone that ordered Sept. 30th so all the orders were delayed. Their customer service was very quick though and they provided tracking number for my order with free shipping :D Right now they have 20% off promotion going on, and all their jewelry is $30 with free shipping. You have to sign up for month-to-month though, so if you only want to purchase one item now, you have to cancel your order at the beginning of the next month to avoid being charged for that month. It's an interesting idea and a lot of pieces are truly unique! I hear they often have promotions so if you want to wait for another one, but the jewelry selection also changes monthly so if there's something you really like then you want to get it while it's available!
Came in a gorgeous mint-colored box! I was expecting just some bubble wrap and a mini satch. The packaging is just lovely and gets better. Of course I couldn't figure out how to open it at first, dumb as usual...
Greeted with a lovely message. Just opening the package is an experience of it's own :) And finally, the necklace!
Oh my god I'm in love. It has a rustic feel so it doesn't look cheap as if it were solid gold. It's also quite heavy so it won't break easy! I forgot to take a picture, but it opens like an actual safety pin too! Really cool design so you can wear it like the modeled picture.
I'm SO happy I purchased this necklace! It really is gorgeous in person, and I highly recommend it. It's still available for purchase, check it out HERE!
That's pretty much it for today. I'm extremely hungry waiting for my boyfriend to come home from work... at least I hope he's still not at work since 6am this morning?! (⦿ ⋀ ⦿ ;;) ...again. Now I'm off to indulge in a giant bowl of Cherrios and bananas. Minus the bananas. Me and Pumpkin ate them all. Noo~
Oh btw it was her 13th birthday yesterday! Love you Pumpkin! And my boyfriend's friend Pumpkin/David too. BAHAHAHA.
Until next time!
