Sponsored Review: HimeNailShop

Hey cuties! How are you this weekend? Having fun?

I've had a huge obsession with false nails lately... Because of my job I can't really wear the super long ones but I have slowly started getting used to wearing them! I think my longest pair were my Halloween ones that I did... But everyone starts from somewhere, don't they? 

To me, nails are a huge part of gyaru! I haven't really thought it before but the tiny details do really make the coord complete! That's why I was really happy when I saw that my friend Heather started selling some of her nails on Etsy >////< Now I can have easy access to short but pretty false nails! 

The nails I received were these gorgeous pink to purple glitter ombre ones that actually have some cute crystals on them! I asked for the short option because she does both long and short nails!

Please note that also this is a sponsored review, these thoughts are 100% my own!

Based in the U.S.
There are three sizes for the nails: Queen, Princess and Dutchess
Custom sizing is available if you don't fit into the above categories
Nails tips are made with ABS Virgin Plastic, then sealed & decorated with UV top coat
There's a 10% discount is you use my code LIZZIEBEE

Here are some more pictures!


pretty packaging~

Now I actually swapped one of the fingers so the design here might look different to her website. I thought it looked cute this way

I was really in the oraora/tsuyome/ane gal mood when I tried these on so I just HAD to dress to reflect them >///<

Anyway, onto the ratings!

Postage and Packaging
I received them in a lovely little box - which I now use for storage tehe - along with a  thank you card! So cute! It was really nice because she actually put some thought into her packaging! It took about just over a week to nearly two to arrive as she ships from America, so you American readers are lucky ;D
Communication
Despite our time differences, she replied to me really shortly after my messages! She handled the whole situation with one of the nails being slightly small perfectly, and my replacement nails were sent out really quickly.
Appearance
I loved how they looked and thought they went really well with oraora and the "harder" gyaru styles! They probably won't go with my agejo wardrobe as much, but they are still really pretty.
Usability ♡ 
Knocked off a heart because I won't be able to wear these much with my wardrobe... Maybe I need to buy some oraora stuff. But they come shorter which is good for working gals like me :D Unfortunately one of the little gems came off while I was food shopping and I don't have anything to replace it ;_; Hopefully I can find something in my nail supplies!

Overall
Overall I was really happy with my item! Obviously I knocked off the remaining percentage because of the nail sizing and the crystal coming off, but everything else was perfect! I'd definitely recommend her shop!

Oh wait! Before I go...

As you may have noticed, I made a few tweaks to my blog! The biggest one is that I've now got a custom domain! I'm so, so happy! I thought it was time to get one as it's been so many years since I've first blogged... I really hope to get better! I've also got a new Twitter so please follow! @3lizziebee

Okay now it's really time to go! Ciao!
