$50 to spend! Reply fast!

Post by Caitlin02 on Fri Aug 29, 2014 7:39 pm

I just did a recent birthday party and I have NO IDEA what to spend my $50 on! My kit includes DFX essential paint, metallic white and light blue, glitter, glitter gel, Starblends white and a neon rainbow TAG. Don't have any 1-strokes or Prisma cakes, or silver and gold. What next and where can I get them?! Pleas give a list like this

Forget the paint, it's your birthday. I vote for a spa package instead. Very Happy

i'm a shimmer, sparkle, metallic fan myself, i'd buy shimmer powders or metallic colors, and metal colors - silver, gold, copper.

i think the best approach is to buy colors and splits you really like, and that you have designs you will use them for.

for instance, what color cat/tiger faces do you like - buy the colors for them. if you like the split you mentioned for roses, go ahead and get that.

and keep in mind what not to get.  for example, i don't usually use plain yellow in designs, so i wouldn't get a large cake of it. it's tempting to want to buy everything you see, but be sure you will really use it Smile
