We reckon that all techs need to have a blingbox, one that is lightweight, elegant and most importantly functional. We travel so much and the last thing we want is to carry anything heavy that dents and cracks when our luggages are in transit. We dream of something that can store different sizes of containers and yet carry the professional look. Best of all, our blingbox can also be converted into a pallete, a storage for nail art tips or a brush case and one is never enough !  The possibilities are endless. We have put together 4 limited edition collections for our upcoming Orlando and Vegas show and here are your options :
All blingbox comes with 15 clear square jars with cover filled with the selections you see in the picture and a tweezer
VivCat Blingbox - All Swarovski Elements Chaton (Code VC-BB999)

This is awesome for those who wants to make a statement with a high quality Swarovski set into your nail extentions or just simply to set into the centre of a 3D flower. Because it is Swarovski crystal, they are reusable and the sparkle is just brilliant ! These stones are carefully selected for their special color effects and unique cut.


Our 3 other collections are a mix of Nailart Charm Deco and Swarovski Elements. They add a touch of glamour and sparkle to an otherwise simple nail design. Can be used as feature on one nail or on the toenails. You will be surprised at how durable they can be attached to gel or acrylic nails with some clear acrylic powder and nail glue.

contains 15 different choices bows, crowns, dangle, star, butterfly, swarovski elements

contains 15 different choices bows, crowns, snowflake, star, dangle, kitty, swarovski elements
