I have an addiction to rhinestones. In fact, I don’t really want to let anyone know how many I have, but…..admitting I have a problem is the first step! I have found rhinestones in my pasta, in the keyboard of my laptop, and in my shoes. It’s time to face up to my powerlessness in the face of sparkles!
In fact, my guy (who happens to look a bit like Toki Wartooth) has begun saying this:
The above will only be funny to people who have watched the show, sorry. R-R-R-Rhinestones!
I have every commercially available Swarovski crystal available, most of them in multiple sizes. I store them in plastic pill boxes, seperated by color. Despite having a multitude of these things, I don’t use them often, except for nails I sell in my Etsy shop. The more I get, the less I want to use them. I know it’s sort of crazy.
I had to stop myself from placing yet another order to my
pusher online rhinestone wholesaler today. There are a couple new colors out for spring and I need them. I bought a couple mini-packs of the new colors at the store when they came out earlier this month, but I need the sweet wholesale size bag.
So I’m trying to use them on blingy paved rhinestone nails, despite my natural tendency to horde them. Here’s what I’ve come up with so far:
An artsy shot!
I’m really trying to be good and use them instead of hording them like a magpie. I’ll see how that works out…
In other news, I have the brand new Spring 2011 TiNS collection to show you very soon, and there will be a contest where you can win. These are very hard to find outside of Japan, so this is your chance to get your hands on some of that glitter!
