mani monday: the collection nails by kiss #2

mani monday: the collection nails by kissHappy Monday! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. We spent ours inside, in our pajamas watching movies – it was fabulous. I posted a few weeks ago about The Collection Nails from KISS, and I have another beautiful set to show off today. I can’t find the name of them, so I’m going to just call them ‘Cherry Blossom’

The kit contains
•24 Design Nails in 12 Sizes
•Pink Gel Glue (2g)
•Mini File
•Manicure Stick

I love the design… the pink gradient tip, the blossoms… they look like a painting, and the length is perfect. They had felt a little long the first time, but I’ve gotten used to it. The Pink Gel Glue is mess free, and the nails are extremely easy to apply. Took less than 10 minutes from the time I opened the box until I had them all set and in place. I did use OPI Nail Envy as a base this time, just to give my nails a bit of extra strength. I should get about 5 days of wear which is about how long it takes for me to get bored of a nail design – so these are perfect for me!

kiss tornado 360°- 1875W ionic dryer giveaway

tornado 360° 1875W ionic dryerGone are the days when I had all the time I wanted in the morning to get ready for work, and with Bobby starting full time school in September it’s only going to get crazier. I typically shower before bed because I’ve never owned a decent dryer and they have all taken forever to dry my hair. Cue the Kiss Tornado 360° 1875W Ionic Dryer:

• 3x, super-fast hair drying action created with spiral airflow movements that penetrate deeper into the roots
• Ceramic tourmaline ionic effect reduces frizz and creates healthy, shiny hair
• Protects from spot heat damage
• No more shaking of dryer–rotating air booster does the work for you
• Bonus styling concentrator attachment included for traditional styling

I was really worried that my hair would get caught up in the “rotating air booster” – but thankfully it didn’t. It took about 5 minutes to dry my hair, making it very possible for me to shower in the morning if I want and it is really nice not having to wave my wrist back and forth as the rotating air booster distributes the air quite well. The attachments are also extremely easy to switch, so you can use the air booster to dry most of your hair, and then the concentrator attachment to finish drying and styling.tornado 360° 1875W ionic dryertornado 360° 1875W ionic dryertornado 360° 1875W ionic dryertornado 360° 1875W ionic dryerKiss wants to make your mornings easier too, so they’re giving one away!

mani monday: the collection nails by kiss – imagination

kiss the collection - imaginationHappy Monday everyone! I had a totally different plan for my nails this week, but the kids and I have awful colds… so I went the easy route instead. The new Collection Nails by KISS in Imagination is beautiful and was the perfect solution.

The kit contains
•24 Design Nails in 12 Sizes
•Pink Gel Glue (2g)
•Mini File
•Manicure Stick

Unlike the salon gel set I reviewed a few weeks back, there are no tabs to file off – I did end up filing a couple of them down a bit just because of length – it’s the only downside for me, because I liked using that tab to sort and apply them.

They went on easily (I did have to reapply one because I put it on a bit crooked) and so far they are staying on quite well. I love the variety in designs and I forget that I have them on.
