I interrupt this food blog for a little bit of girly summer fun. I belong to a program called Influenster. Occasionally, they send me products to check out. Some of them I blog about and others I don’t. I decided I really wanted to let you know about these cool nails they sent me from Kiss Products Inc. I may be a food blogger, but I’m also a busy mom and I like to share whatever I can that helps me get through my real life and helps me to find the time to make real food.
First……..a little background about me…………
I love to do my nails or I like to have them look nice anyway. I don’t have time or money to go get manicures at the salon so I have always done my nails myself. I like them to look nice for work, but I get frustrated that they only look nice for a short time. Do you ever feel that way? And……….I’ll be honest here………….my nail time has kind of been taken over by my blogging time. It’s really hard to type with wet nails. I know. I have tried. The nail polish on my keyboard is proof.
I’ve always admired the French Manicure look, but I haven’t figured out how to do it myself. I’m more of a solid color kind of girl, but I was super excited to try something different. The Kiss Products Inc Everlasting French Manicure tips showed up just in time for me to do my nails before heading out of town to my son’s Boy’s State graduation. I had zero time to pack and make myself look nice. We had baseball and softball games to attend. There really was no time for me to sit and wait for my nails to dry.
I decided to give the Kiss nails a try. They went on nice and easy. The tabs on the end made the nails easy to place over my real nails. I struggled a little with the glue and sizing. Remember…………I’m new to this. The nails dried in just 5 seconds. Did you hear me? 5 seconds! Even I have time for that.
So how do they hold up? I promise to always be honest with you. I was disappointed when one popped off in less than 2 days. I quickly glued it back on and went back on with my life. They look nice. They don’t chip or break or crack like regular nail polish. I feel like there is a bit of gluing upkeep that has to be done which is a bit of a disappointment, but not too big of a deal. I keep the extra nails and glue with me for quick fixes. They seem to come off when I least expect it.
OH! Make sure you cut your nails shorter than the nail tips you are putting on. That was another rookie mistake for me.
Would I buy them again? You bet! They give me a great look and the nails have long-lasting beauty…………provided I can keep them on my fingers.
Have you ever used the Kiss Products Inc line of nail products? What did you think? Do you prefer home manicures or salon manicures?
