The first thing I got was this multi-sided nail file, and let me tell you, if you're someone who does their nails frequently this is PERFECT. It has four different sides, each with a different degree of coarseness. Then it even has a side for smoothing & removing ridges. It's brilliant. At $2.88, you really can't go wrong!
Born Pretty is the absolute best store for nail stickers. They have so many and they're really cheap, so you can stock up on a couple different ones for under $10! I got the two in the picture above: some simple black stickers, and some neon ones. I wanted to pick something basic and easy to use. I'll be sure to Instagram a pic when I get around to using them!

Finally, I picked up a little bag of these hexagonal studs. These have been crazy popular in the nail world for the last little while, so I was eager to test them out. I stuck them on when the nail polish was still wet, and sealed them in with my Essie Fast Drying top coat. I think the manicure is really cute, but I must say it doesn't last very long, especially if you're up and about doing things with your hands. I'm also one to pick at my nails/nail polish (bad habit), so you can bet the studs were off within a day. I think it's a nice idea for a one-time occasion, like a night out or a special event. They would also look cool over black nails.
