I really really REALLY liked this month's bag because of the nail wheels containing all the nail studs. If you're a stud lover (lol, see what I did there?) you'll find these nail wheels to be absolute GOLD. They contain some really unique studs, some of which I have never seen before. For example that giant gold sequin? Fantastic. 24 kinds of studs? That pretty much means I can do at least 24 different manicures (and don't forget combinations of studs).

Also a wheel of fimo butterflies. I don't use fimo too often only because my nails are pretty curved but I have seen some cute acrylic sets with butterflies worked into them.

I have been using these manicure sticks for ages! If you recall, these are the type that I mentioned in my nail care products post. I like them because one side is pointed and the other is beveled making them easy to use with cuticle remover. I prefer them to metal implements because I know I'll never accidentally damage my soft nails and that they're disposable so I don't have to sanitize them. This pack contains two sizes.

Lastly, there is a double sided brush. Made of synthetic hairs, it is really soft. I've been using this for my brows, using the angled side to fill them in and the round side to apply concealer to "clean up". Will also be bringing this brush on vacation next week.

Here's a manicure I created with the hexagonal silver studs form one of the nail wheels. I used American Apparel Dynasty as the base, taped off sections with triangular piece of Scotch tape and painted on Julep Nora, a gift from a friend. I then removed the tape and used nail glue to adhere the studs. I really love how it turned out, actually.
For me, this was a great Grab Bag this month because I'll definitely use most of the items in it. What about you? Do those awesome studs appeal to anyone else?
