Review (sorta): Winstonia Grab Bag

(The products in this post were purchased by me; I am not affiliated with Winstonia.)


Did you know that Winstonia does monthly grab bags of nail art products? Well, you do now! It's like a monthly subscription box of nail products, except there is no monthly club, and you don't have to take a risk and buy sight unseen. You get to see the products before you buy, and don't have to sign up or anything--just buy like any other product. The benefit is, you do get a good price for the supplies compared to what you'd pay separately.

I bought the July bag, and I'm very pleased with it. Here's what it contains:

Complete contents

The bag included two wheels of nail studs, one wheel of butterfly fimo slices, one bag of orange sticks, and a good quality double-ended brush. By my informal estimate (which is on the conservative side), this is between $15-20 of nail art products, for $10--and free shipping!

Here's a closer look at the studs:

These come in a variety of shapes and sizes...and most importantly imo, colors! While there are are some of the standard silver, gold, and black, there are cool orange, blue, red and purple-pink. This adds a great extra dimension for nail art.

The third wheel contains fimo canes slices of butterflies. I'm not a huge fan of fimo cane stuff usually, but these butterflies are so whimsical I couldn't resist them. The color combinations are fun and interesting, the detailing is impressive, and I had to have them:

While orange sticks aren't the most exciting thing in the world, they are crazy useful and I'm always glad to have more, especially in various sizes for different uses:

And finally, the thing I think many people will be very excited about--the double-ended nail brush. When I saw this, I instantly thought clean up. The one end can help you get the massive stuff off of the cuticles and round your nail bed, while the slanted brush can help you with precision where you need it more. And from what I can see, it's good quality and isn't going to fall apart on you the moment you use it.

Eeeeek!! Nekkid nails!!!

What do you think? If you like it, you can get it for a few more days by clicking here. I'm looking forward to seeing what they come up with for August. :)

Hugs and Happy Saturday,
