So for those of you who guessed 3-D acrylic moulds, you were correct! I got my moulds from 3D NAIL. These things are just awesome I tell you! This is like acrylic 3D nail art for dummies! And by dummies, I mean people like me! I rec'd five moulds from them. The moulds are a flexible, rubber mould that you fill with acrylic, let dry and then pop out. You then place your newly formed piece of 3D nail art on your nail. Below is a short video for the goldfish mould (which I got, squeeeeee!)
See!! How easy does that look?
Here are the moulds that I got:
You will need to enlarge the image to really see all the cute designs on the moulds. I got: The Goldfish, Skulls, flowers, dragonfly and bee, & butterfly bows. They have almost 100 different moulds, so these five are just a fraction of what they offer. (Including a pumpkin one I was really tempted to get.)
I just had to use one of these last night, so I picked the skull one. I just got a little starter acrylic nail set from Sallys to use, that came with a little brush as well as the acrylic stuff I would need. This is the first time I have ever used this stuff and it was a little difficult to figure out how much liquid I needed on the brush, and it wasn't really picking up a little ball of powder like I have seen when I get my nails done. SO I think I need a little practice as far as that goes. Luckily my kit came with a acrylic nail how to DVD, so I will watch that for some pointers. I also noticed when I was done that I did have a few air bubbles in my disign, so I don't think I packed it into the mould enough either. I only got two skulls done when the BF started whining about the smell, so I stopped. So here is my first attempt:
I was literally squealing with delight over this! When I say I squealed, that's what I did, you should have seen Dinky pop her head up from under the covers and cock it sideways at me, lol! I had to show the BF what was causing all the stink. Who then asked, why did I stop . . . . . blank stare right into his eyes, uh weren't you just going into dramatics over the smell?! I swear, at times like these I could star in the next episode of SNAPPED! So I only have this one to show you today, but I plan on putting these moulds to good use, very soon!
I also wanted to point out that I got excellent, personable service on these! I had a few emails going with King, and he was most helpful to me. He was extremely prompt and very courteous with his responses. These came from Taiwan and were shipped on Thursday Aug. 20th and I received them Wednesday Aug 26th!!! That is like super duper fast!
So tell me ladies, what do you think of these 3D acrylic nail art moulds? Something you would purchase or have purchased? I would love to hear all of your opinions on these.
