Review: BlingUp.net Japanese 3D Nails -- Tri-Color Nail Tip with Pearl White Flower Nail Art and Austrian Crystals [Set 2 of 4]

To recap from my original overview of Blingup.net nails:


BLINGUP.NET 3D NAIL ART!

Blingup.net specializes in 100% custom, handmade 3D japanese style nails. They make the nails specifically to your nail measurements to ensure a perfect fit. I also asked if the length of my nails could be shortened a bit. They came out PERFECT! Blingup.net's customer service is also FANTASTIC. Extremely quick and friendly replies to all of my questions and concerns :)

The nails are SO gorgeous; extremely detailed and intricate, but also very durable! The deco pieces do NOT fall off, even after 1+ weeks of wear.





You also get:


  • One free 3g nail glue each order (10g nail glue with brush if your order more than 4 nail sets).

  • 10 pieces of Professional double-sided nail tape for each nail set.

  • Nail file (360Grit for filing nail surface and for sharpening of the nail)

  • Repair package (in the event gems, crystals or nail art fall off)

Here are the Tri-Color Nail Tip with Pearl White Flower Nail Art and Austrian Crystals nails.

From Blingup.net:
This nail set features various colors on each nail tip with a pearl white 3d flower nail art and genuine Austrian crystals. The detail continues with glitter and beads all throughout the nail art with a cluster of gold metal beads at the center of each flower.

These nails have a "summery" feel to me, and I especially love the detailing on the thumb and all the deco flowers. This is a more light and girly design, perfect for say, a wedding or some kind of special occasion :)

Also, like I mentioned in my first review:

These nails are rather long in length. So if you're not used to long nails, they take some getting used to! After I got used to them though, I had no problems typing, opening things, etc. And, make sure to use a good amount of glue! Use a thick, even coat, and the nails should not pop off for at least a week. None of the decorations fell off either, but since the nails come with replacement gems and such, you can easily replace gems if they fall off.




The Rundown:
Packaging:
5/5
Super cute packaging! Perfect for storing.

Product: 5/5
Amazing detail and quality. 100% Handmade to YOUR specifications!

Price: 4/5
These nails quite pricey if you're trying to stick to beauty on a budget, but you get what you pay for, and you're paying for the highest quality!

Circle Lens Review: Neo Dali Extra Gray & Brown from Shoppingholics.com

These lenses were sent to me for review purposes by
Shoppingholics.comThey have a large selection of circle lenses, their customer service is great, and I received the lenses quickly and packaged very carefully. They also provide lots of information and pictures of the lenses on their website, so you can get a good idea of what they look like before you buy them.

The lenses I'm reviewing are:


Neo Dali Extra Gray

and
Neo Dali Extra Brown



And also some adorable lens cases!


OVERALL:
The brand of these lenses is Neo Vision, which I wasn't familiar with -- I've only tried GEO, G&G, and EOS before. However, they are very comfortable and I didn't have any problems wearing either pair. The diameter is 14.2mm, so they offer some enlargement, but they're not overly unnatural-looking at all. I must say though, that the grays are THE BEST gray lenses I have ever tried EVER. I LOVE them ^.^ The browns look nice, but the color doesn't show up the way I thought it would.

Neo Dali Extra Gray

I lovelovelove these lenses! The gray is quite noticeable, but not in an "unnatural" way. They give the PERFECT (for me, at least) bright gray pop to my eyes. The limbal ring is actually darkish brown, and fades into a pixely dark-to-light gray, which subtly fades into the pupil hole, which is quite large; but surprisingly, doesn't make my pupils look all that huge/creepy. Also, although the diameter is 14.2mm, it doesn't enlarge in an unnatural/borderline creepy way like some of the other lenses I've tried that were only 14mm. The color of these lenses shows up very well in person AND in pictures. It looks AND photographs beautifully, so if you want bright gray lenses, I think these would be a great choice.




Neo Dali Extra Brown

These lenses give off a distinct dolly/doe-eyed look. The limbal ring is dark brown and fades to a light brown, pixely pattern like the grays. The brown doesnʻt really show up on my eyes, it just looks dark/black, but that gives the illusion of more enlargement than the grays (though still not overly huge/freaky looking). These lenses do give a glossy/shiny look to my eyes though; so I think they are nice for everyday wear when you want a little sparkle to your eyes. If you're looking for bright, noticeable brown though, I wouldn't go with these.




Lens Cases

Theyʻre super cute, sturdy, and open easily/close tightly. Great for travel or everyday use... plus they're just fun to look at :)







The Rundown:
Packaging:
N/A

Product: 4.5/5
These Neo Dalis are very comfortable. The grays are vibrant and look spectacular in photos/real life, and the browns are cute/dolly and give eyes a "shiny" look, but the color does not stand out. The contact lens cases are adorable and high-quality.

Price: 4.5/5
Their lenses are in the $21+ range, and you can get free shipping for purchases over $50.
