Miss Beauty Nail Bling – Review July 9, 2012

Today I bring you the Miss Beauty Nail Bling from my May MyGlam bag.  This is a brand not very available in the US, but MyGlam sells it on their site now.  Up until a few months ago I hadn’t tried any sort of fake nail art, and this was my first textured one. The stickers have little rhinestones on them in the shape of hearts. 

Since the stickers are basically rhinestones on top of a clear tape I decided to do an accent nail with my only ORLY polish (Beach Cruiser).  The stickers stayed on for about 3 days before they got messed up to the point that I had to remove them. The rhinestones  seemed to get caught on things.

This pattern was definitely made for people with MUCH longer nails than I have. Each of the stickers had at least another half left, and on my thumb I actually cut the sticker in half first so that I could mate the middle and have a full heart. That proved to be the most disappointing thing about these stickers, that I didn’t really have a good pattern to show.

Would I buy this product again? Maybe, if they have better patterns/colors

Will I finish the sample? It was a one use product, so it is used up.

Here’s the breakdown:

Sample Size: 1 Packet
Full Size:   1 Packet
Full Size Price: $5.00 (as sold on MyGlam)
Sample Value: $5.00

May the Look Bag – Wrap Up

I’ve had a chance to use and review all of the products from my May bag and decide on how much I liked them. So now it is time to do my box wrap up.

In case you don’t remember, here is a summary of the Awesomeness level:

Box Awesomeness Level Review (AL)

  • 5 points for an item that surpasses everything else I’ve tried and becomes my #1 choice for what role it fulfills
  • 4 points for an item that becomes added to my permanent collection of cosmetics and I will repurchase
  • 3 points for an item that joins my “I might buy this again” list
  • 2 points for an item I finished or will finish the entire sample of but in the end decided not to re-purchase
  • 1 point for an item that I tried and immediately threw out/gave away
  • 0 points if the item was a duplicate of something from a previous bag/box/kit that only scored a 1 in that box – meaning I knew enough to not even bother with trying it.
  • Don’t forget that I subtract 1/2 point for samples that can only be used 2 or fewer times.

Guys, I’m sorry, but I got an email from Urban Decay about this new smokey eye palette and I bought it. In a week or two I’ll get it and I’ll make you read the review. Sorry again – hope you don’t hate me for it.

Hopefully you can read the oozing with sarcasm into my note 😉
