Craz-Z-Art Shimmer and Sparkle

Grotbags was recently sent the Cra-Z-Art Designer Nail & Body Art Studio to review and oh was she in her element, after all anything that is glittery and sparkly is a young girls dream. This set is aimed at girls 8+ years which I think is very wise considering it contains lots of small pieces, it also requires 4 AAA batteries. Included in the set is:

  • Colour Changing Glitter Dome to Create Glittery Nails and Tattoos
  • 4 Nail Polishes/Pens
  • Glitter
  • Nail Art Stickers
  • Nails
  • Stencil for Body Art

The fake nails could be painted and decorated using the colour changing glitter dome and whilst Grotbags loved this, I found it very messy and have spent hours cleaning glitter up from around the home, it didn’t do much for my OCD. Although I must admit she has had hours of fun playing with this and with the added bonus that the nail polish is easily removed.
The gem art stencils are great but placing the gems on to the sticky surface is quite fiddly and the tweezers that are supplied to pick up the gems are not really fit for purpose, luckily I have some old tweezers that did the job perfectly will allowed Grotbags to create some great tattoos.  I did love the pens that are supplied and these gave some great touches to nails and I was able to draw some tattoos on Grotbags with the help of the stencil that was provided.

All said I think most girls would love this set to create their own designs just be prepared for the glitter.

The set retails at £19.99 and can be bought from most toy retailers.


I was sent this item free of charge for the purpose of this review and the opinion is entirely my own.
