Hello girls! I have a really exciting review for you today!
I have looked everywhere for dotting tools. My local Wal-Marts, Targets, and even Walgreens didn’t carry any! The only place that I have seen a dotting tool (singular) is at Sally’s Beauty Supply. It’s a double ended piece of metal with two different sized spheres for like $6.
The reason that I didn’t purchase it was because I’ve had my eye on a SET of dotting tools from BornPrettyStore.com. I’ve seen a couple other bloggers and Youtubers do a few other reviews from this site, so I thought I would check it out. I had seen a review for their dotting tool sets, and I immediately wanted them!
I don’t have a credit card, so of course I couldn’t just buy them. So I put them on my Christmas list!
The heavens must have seen my list, and I was contacted a few weeks ago by BornPrettyStore.com. They offered me to choose an item to review! I, of course, picked the dotting tool set.
I am so happy with these. Although I haven’t gotten to play around with them much because I have been a bit busy, these are a DEFINITE buy.
They come in a set of 5 with two ends. I don’t know if I got a defective package, but my set came with two large sphered ends, two really tiny, one mid medium, and then the others ends were all the same. I hope the pictures can help explain that better.
On the site I thought that the one ends were all the same, and the other ends were all different.
Altogether I got 4 different sized spheres. Although I thought that the one ends were all supposed to be different, I really like how there is more than one of the same size because I can use the same size, but I don’t have to stop or slow down to clean it off when I want to use a different color.
Like I said, I haven’t had much time to play around with these, but from what I could tell by the couple times I used them, I am really going to enjoy them!
I used to use old bobby pins and wooden toothpicks. They were so hard to control because they are so small, but with this set it’s like using a pencil!
Cleaning them takes no longer than a minute with a little acetone or polish remover. I store them in my coffee cup that holds all of my other nail tools.
Another downfall is I picked the set that all the handles are the same design and color—the pink set. I would suggest if you want these to get the multi-colored set so you can memorize more easily which colors coordinates with each size.
I have looked over the site and I’ve seen other things that I put on my Christmas list, so I will probably do a review on them if I get them for Christmas. Things like their Nail wheels, Stamping kits, and even false lashes!
They have a lot of really cool items for really good prices. Also they have FREE SHIPPING WORLDWIDE! I find that to be great because most sites you see you have really inexpensive items, but the shipping makes it so expensive and not even worth buying.
These sets of dotting tools cost $4.74. They come in two different colors like I said—a multi-color set and a pink set. FREE shipping which is great. They came in about 12 days, but they are being shipped internationally so I think 12-14 days is normal?
I even have a 5% off coupon code for you guys! It’s BRITL73 and it’s valid before February 7, 2012.
