I was recently introduced to Tmart.com which is a website that sells pretty much EVERYTHING from electronics and small gadgets to tattoo kits and of course Tmart nail art decorations! At first I wasn’t sure how large the nail art selection would be since it is not Tmart’s primary focus, but I was pleasantly surprised by the selection, pricing and easy site navigation. I got the chance to review some very fun fimo nail art canes that I enjoyed using A LOT as demonstrated by the nail art shown here!
What I liked when clicking on each item is that it shows where the item is shipping from with the closest warehouse being right in the US. I don’t know how much faster shipping would be as the items I received took A VERY LONG TIME to come so I’m guessing they were getting shipped by surface from China, but the SHIPPING IS FREE with no minimum purchase!
You can see that Tmart has a points system based on purchases, reviews, photos and Youtube videos that can be used towards redemption of specific products which may or may not be to your liking!
Remember those Sweet Color polishes we all love so much? Well, Tmart has ‘em for some really great prices as well as other Tmart nail polish brands and accessories! There were also some very familiar-looking Ciate-esque manicure kits.
Now, achieving my holiday manicure was super fun and reminded me of playing with Play- Doh as a kid! The fimo canes come in a variety of shapes and have a razor blade for slicing off the design. You can get fimo nail pieces pre-cut, but cutting them yourself is much more cost effective!
2 coats of Essie – Lots of Lux
Price: $5.13 CDN for 50 fimo nail art canes and blade
Results/Discussion: My very first couple of slices were a little uneven. Think slicing cheese or a roll of salami. I found that applying pressure to the blade by situating myself directly above the blade gave me more even slices. You also don’t want to make your slices too thick as they do not lie as flat (like my Santa over there). I adhered my fimo slices using clear top coat and I was actually quite amazed at how long they held on! I wore this hand to work and didn’t lose one! I did not apply top coat over top my manicure as I knew I wouldn’t last more than a day with these on. There were too many household things to do and having fimo nail art on your nails is completely unnecessary!
Conclusion: Once I got the hang of cutting the slices evenly, I started having a blast! There were so many cute little designs in the pack I received that it was hard to decide what sort of theme to do. The blade was nice and sharp and gave me neat, clean fimo slices to work with. For the price and the number of different designs included, I was quite pleased with this little set!
