Here are some of the canes I sliced up - I have around 6-8 pieces in each tray and I've barely made a dent on the cane! Of course, this comes down to how thinly you slice the pieces (personal preference) as well as how many mistakes you make :P
With so many choices to choose from, I did feel a little overwhelmed. I decided to play safe and start with some fruit fimo for a nail art idea. For my index and pinky nails, I applied two coats of Sportsgirl Baby elephant before layering a coat of China Glaze White cap over it. I applied two coats of China Glaze IDK onto my thumb and fourth finger. On my middle finger, I applied two coats of OPI Passion to hide my stained nails :P Then I sponged on Baby elephant at the tips and applied a coat of LA Colors Sparkling diamonds. Lastly, I added the fruit fimos, rhinestone and pearl.
Having previously used fimo pieces only once before this, I encountered a curling problem from the pieces. Learning from that experience, I made sure to press my pieces down with a dotting tool occasionally after I had applied my final topcoat to ensure it stuck fast on the edges. (You probably won't have to do this much if your topcoat is fast drying though) The fimo pieces held on really well for the entire time I had this mani. It took a bit of scrubbing to get off once I decided to remove it! :P
Considering pre-sliced fimo pieces may cost you around $3 (since the last I checked on ebay), this set really is a bargain. You get 100 designs to choose from and you get sooooo much more than the 120 pieces you'll get from pre-sliced options. I found the slicing part really fun once I got the hang of it too - is it weird that I find it soothing? :P If you're still hesitating, Born Pretty Store offers free international shipping, no matter how much you buy and plus, you can use my 10% discount code PIJ61.
