mani monday – kiss salon gel french nail kit review

mani monday - kiss salon gel french nail kit reviewHappy Monday everyone! Last week was crazy (in a very good way) but I am re-energized and ready to get back at it. I spent some time Saturday updating my blog, so over the next couple days and weeks there will be some more changes – I’d love any ideas, suggestions, or feedback any of you might have!

On to my manicure. I have been neglecting my nails pretty bad over the past few weeks, so I thought it was a great time to test out the KISS Salon Gel French Nail Kit. I’ve been nervous about trying them because they are glue on nails, but I really had nothing to lose!

The package includes 28 nails, mini glue, and 1 wood stick. Each nail has a tab on it with a number, which made it super easy to find the matching nail for my other hand. I typically have bad luck with nail glue and it ends up everywhere, but the packaging on the pink gel glue made it mess free. The nails are very flexible for application, but they also feel quite strong. They feel fantastic now that they are on – they aren’t too long, and I almost forget I’m even wearing them. So far it’s only been about 24 hours and I will update this post if/when they start coming off so I can talk about the condition of my nails. They are supposed to last about 7 days. As of right now I definitely see myself using these again… it took less than 10 minutes from start to finish, and I’m really happy with the result.

mani monday – green & gold

Happy Mani Monday everyone! Okay… so I totally thought St. Patrick’s day was this week… it isn’t. Regardless, I am rocking a green and gold manicure this week and I love it! I picked up KBShimmer’s Ins and Sprouts a few weeks ago – ‘Like a new bud popping through the soil, this pale green citron colored polish is alive with linear holographic shine.’ – and thought it was the perfect base to show off these gorgeous gold decals from the KISS Salon Secrets Rococo Veil Kit.

The kit comes with a nail art sealer and 3 sheets of decals – one gold, one silver, and one half sheet of blue/white/red ‘gems’. I started with 2 coats of Ins and Sprouts, a coat of Clearly on Top, added my decals and used the sealer, along with another coat of Clearly on Top. I’ve never used a nail art sealer before and found that it really helped stop the decals from lifting at the edges.

manimonday – picture polish never nude

Happy Monday everyone! This is the week I get this blog back on track. It’s been too quiet around here lately I think 🙂 This week I wanted something neutral but not boring… so I went with Never Nude – a collab polish by Will Paint Nails For Food and piCture pOlish.

Never Nude is an ivory creme with scatter holo, blue glass flecks and a smattering of small blue and magenta hex glitters. Designed to came alive with a shake of the bottle.

The formula is fantastic, I shook the bottle after each coat to make sure the glitter was mixed in and was happy after 3 coats. I love the subtlety of the shimmer and the delicate glitter. Topped as always with KBShimmer Clearly On Top
