Soooooooo I’m going to Queensland tomorrow for a weeks holiday with Sebastian and my family so I really wanted my deco supplies to arrive before I left…….and here they are! They got here this morning! All I need now is the iPhone case so I can start decorating…..
So here are the reviews!!
First up we have the eBay store ‘jstuffsale’
I got 4 items from the store (the small multi-coloured rhinestones are from another store on ebay but I’ve forgotten which one sorry….) :S
Here’s a description of everything I got:
-“Sweet Lolita Princess Hime-Kei Sticker Sheet”
got this one mainly for the large 3D bows, but the other stickers are cute too. I think I’ll actually use the flat stickers to cover my new DS case……..
-“Decora Harajuku Big Acrylic Heart 5 pcs set”
These hearts have a flat back which makes me happy as I was worried they were going to have amore rounded back then they wouldn’t stick as well but they’re perfect! I got some ring bases from another store (keep reading for that review!!) so I might turn one of them into a ring too….
-“1 Metre Decora Harajuku Flower Pearl String”
I got this to put around the edge of the case, like a border to work inside. There is enough to edge both the back and the front of the case and still have some left over! The string itself looks like lace but its not…well that was vauge…what I mean is that it is made of a plastic like material but it really does look like lace…each little flower on the string has a shiny pearl in the middle
-“Decora Harajuku Flatback Pearl Mix 400 Pieces”
These are amazing! I’m very in love with these! <3 The pearls really vary in size, some are about as big as my thumb nail and some are so tiny I think I’m going to lose them as soon as I take them out of the bag :S
They are multicoloured, and they have a shiny finish to them although it’s not *reflective* shiny, it’s just right….Ah I’m terrible at describing things….!
-“100 Mix Flatback Rhinestones 4mm”
These ones arn’t from this store sorry! I was just browsing eBay and I thought these would add some colour and sparkle to the case and even to my DS if there are any left over… I am actually disappointed with these, they are just….boring and they look cheap….! I’m not totally sure about using them on my phone case now…maybe I’ll use a few to add some colour and fill in some small gaps?
Ok on to the items I ordered from Yuki at http://fullmoon07xxx.ocnk.net/
I learnt about this site through Violet LeBeaux (There’s a link to her page on the right under “Links”)
Yuki makes her own acrylic nails which she sells on the site along with DIY nail parts, deco supplies, whole deco kits, cell phone charms, and Japanese fashion magazines (which I cant order because I cant read Japanese anymore :() but what I did order is this:
I ordered 6 items from Yuki but 8 arrived!! (Two are free giftsfor mentioning that I heard about the site from Violet Lebeaux)
The 6 items I paid for only came to US$5.20 and everything is good quality! I am definitely buying from there again!!
Ok here’s the review:
-“Pocky 6*47mm (Chocolate)”
This is the little plastic Pocky deco charm! I was amazed when I saw this one I don’t care that it doesn’t fit into the theme of “Pink hearts and diamonds” I’m going to be following for my iPhone case, I’m going to use it anyway!!
It’s so real looking, it’s amazing! This one deco piece is definitely my favourite!
-“Crown 25*20mm (White)”
I’m going to use this crown charm as a ring, just buy using epoxy to glue the charm to a ring base I bought
-“Ring (2cm Diametre)”
I bought 3 of these to make deco style rings with some left over charms They are the type of ring that you’re able to extend by pulling them apart so I can make one for each of my sisters and myself Because that’s just how nice a sister I am :)
-“Pink Rhinestone Oval 20*25mm”
I haven’t decided if I want to use this to cover the close on the case or as a ring…. :S
The charm is a shiny pink and has smaller clear rhinestones circling it, it comes in several colours but all the others were sold out when I ordered…but I’m not complaining since it’s the one I wanted anyway….:)
This is the clear crystal looking flower with gold edging. This one I’m not sure how I’m going to use either…If I use the the pink rhinestone as a ring I’ll use this on the close and vise versa
It’s so pretty, I’m leaning towards using this one on the case and the rhineshtone as a ring…What do you think?
-“Clear Cute Ribbon 20*25mm (White)”
This is the white ribbon in the same bag as the pocky and the crown charm. I’m not sure why it’s called “Clear” because it isn’t…But I don’t mind!
This charm is definitely going on the front of the phone case, I think at the top in the middle as a main visual to frame the front decorations
-The 2 Free Gifts
OMG! Sometimes when you order so much from an online store, they decide to send you a free “gift” that really isn’t worth keeping But not with Yuki! The free gifts she sent me are amazing and actually worth it!
The colourful plastic bag on the bottom is full of random pearls, small charms and a giant dark pink heart and the top one has three deco pieces: A pink heart that has “strawberry” written on it a few times, a cupcake and a strawberry Very cute and very helpful seeing as they all fit into my case’s theme
This is a cheap mobile phone cover thingy I bought from Morning Glory in the Myer food court a few days ago, just because it has a mirror on it! I’m going to put it on the inside of the case so I dont have to also carry a mirror around with me
