The other day I went to Daiso for a little bit of budget rummaging. If you follow me on Twitter, you would have seen me laughing at their tiny nail polish holders, which are obviously not meant for nail polish-holics like me! Anyway, I did find something I ended up getting at Daiso - a set of nail art glitters!


I believe this is called the Glitter Set Purple (No 75). They also had them in other colours, I saw blue and yellow. But I picked the purple, because you know I have a thing for purple, right? It's my absolute favourite colour! The set comes with some diagrams and instructions. Basically the 3 jars in the set are stackable. You have to remove the lids, and screw the bases of one jar onto the top of the other jar.

There are 3 pots of glitter. One is your averge fuschia glitter powder. Not bad. The next is a bunch of small light lilac stars. Also not too bad. Both are things i like and will use. But the thing I really bought this set for was the hearts. They're like, purple holographic hearts!

You know I love me some holo bling, so I'm going to just give you another close up shot of the purple hearts. When seen from different angles, they have this holographic sheen which is absolutely awesome! I love it, and I definitely can't wait to use it. This was also the key reason why I picked purple over the other sets - for some reason, only the purple set had holographic hearts. The hearts in the other coloured sets were just plain plastic hearts.

I paid a whopping S$2 for this set, and I'm happy. Yay for cheap goodies! Anyway, I don't know if your Daiso carries this, but if you do see it, remember to get it! Holo hearts aren't all that easy to come by cheap!

    1. @ Nicole: Can't wait to see your haul! I didn't see any eyeliner seal at Daiso though, the stuff they sell seems to vary from store to store.

    1. @Fiona Star: You can just add them on top of nail polish wherever you need that extra sparkle (e.g. near tips, to form a design, etc)..it can get a bit messy if you're not careful though! I did something similar like that in this post using loose eyeshadow: http://musicalhouses.blogspot.com/2011/12/mixing-nail-polish-and-pigments.html

      Hope that helps!

    1. @Anonymous: I wouldn't recommend them for face use, as they may not be eye-safe or lip-safe. The danger is that the glitter bits could irritate your eyes if they get too close to your eye. I bought these for my nails, not my face. You can see a nail art that has used some heart-shaped pieces and glitter here: http://musicalhouses.blogspot.com/2012/01/valentines-day-nail-art-with-spring.html

      That said, although I don't recommend the use of non-eye or lip-safe glitters on your face, I do know of people who have used non-eye-or-lip safe glitters on their eyes and lips and are still OK, so you may still try it if you wish, just remember that you are doing so at your own risk.
