A Followup to My Last Post- Nail Art Storage Wheels from eBay

You know how sometimes you find a great deal on something, but then you realize you have to sort the items and place them into storage? My nail wheels arrived safely from Hong Kong, and I am absolutely thrilled with them. On the other hand, I spent something like 6 hours sorting rhinestones and studs, and that is... tedious, to say the least.

When I started sorting, I had no idea it would take me so long, but boy did it. I used a tray with raised sides to corral the various goodies, and I used my homemade rhinestone-picker-upper (for lack of a better term) (it's a bamboo skewer with a teeny bit of poster putty on the pointy end) to pick up each individual piece. Keep that in mind when you look at these next photos.

Now, I have to be honest- my recent splurge only filled three of these wheels. However, once I went to put them away, I realized that one set of nail gems that was in the original container had spilled once again into the box I keep it in. This is at least the third or fourth time it's happened, so I figured to heck with it, I'd put them into my empty wheels.

Once I'd finished that, I realized I had several bottles of the Donna Michelle nail art embellishments that just didn't store well and were a nightmare to try and use as they were. So yes, I added them into the nail wheels as well. Once I was finished, I'd filled all 5 wheels and I realized that I want to buy more- at least 10, maybe 20. I figure they won't stay empty for long! So, feast your eyes on my newly-organized goodies!

These rhinestones came from my clearance splurge.

These are the Donna Michelle glitters and shapes. Much easier to use this way!

More goodies I had stashed away. I think I'm more likely to use them now that I can see them easily!

Can you see how many studs are in here? I'm so excited to play with these!!
 
And yet more studs and stones to play with. SO COOL!!

So, to sum up, I managed to get some wonderful, compact, usable storage for a whopping $3.70 and now most of my nail art embellishments are stored in a way that they're both easily accessible and easily viewed. I am SO in love!

If you're interested in picking up some of these nail wheels, you can take advantage of the same deal I did- you can get 5 brand new, unused nail art storage wheels for approximately $3.70 US dollars. It does take a while for them to arrive, but you aren't paying for shipping, so it's hard to complain.

Next time, I'll be sharing a nail design I called Martini Summer. You don't want to miss this one, so stick around!

Til next time!
I love finding good deals on eBay!

  1. What a great idea! Most of my nails bits are already in wheels, but I do have a fair few odds and ends that would be so much neater in a wheel.

    1. Thank you!! I had a lot of items that I'd just forgotten about, and then a bunch more that were just too much of a pain to use. This way, I can access everything more easily!
