Review & Demo: Kiss Gradation Nail Kit

Nail color: imPRESS Press on Manicure in Control Freak

NOTD: Polished Chrome French Mani

Today's nail of the day includes a combination of Broadway imPRESS Press on Nails in Casting Call and the matte top coat and shimmery top coat from the Kiss Top Coat Trio to create a subtle french manicure. I've praised imPRESS nails before, so I won't talk too much about the nails themselves, but I will say that this picture was taken 5 days after application and they are still going strong... need I say more?

What's on your nails?

Review & Swatchfest: Kiss Nail Dress in Teddy

Kiss Nail Dress in Teddy
Whether it's their Nail Dress or their imPRESS Press on Manis, I love Kiss nail products for their fast and easy application. Much like any brand, however, not all products within a line are created equal. I've tried @Kiss Nail Dress multiple times before, and had great experience each time, but that wasn't really the case with Teddy. 

Teddy is a textured pattern with a shiny black base with raised gold dots arranged to create fun swirls. While they look great in the package (and not terrible on my nails), it was harder to achieve smooth edges when filing off. As a result these only lasted for a day before the frayed edges started catching on clothing and soon had to be peeled off. On the one hand, the super fast application and removal makes these the epitome of a perfect mani. However, I expect any manicure - polish or otherwise - to last longer than a day (especially when they cost $6.99 per package). Like I said before, I've had good experience with these in the past, but I think the raised pattern on these set them up for failure from the get go. That being said, I would recommend other patterns from this line because you can not only get two manicures out of one package, but you can also do your toes as well, which makes the $6.99 price tag a bargain.

You can learn more about Kiss Nail Dress on their site! This was given to me as part of the +Influenster Holiday VoxBox, however all thought and opinions are honest and original.

Review & Application: Kiss Ever PRO Lashes

Kiss Ever PRO Lashes
For not being a regular lash wearer, I have been trying quite a few new ways to apply them. First, it was the Kiss lash set with strings (embedded below). Now, thanks to Influenster, I've had the opportunity to try Kiss Ever PRO lashes, complete with a nifty new tweezer alternative and eyelash adhesive.

I haven't met a Kiss lash that wasn't well made. Even the more dense lashes have flexible bands and are among the most comfortable to wear for my somewhat sensitive, watery eyes. Those included in this kit are no different. They flair out slighting on the outer corners, come in pretty short in the inner corners, and look relatively natural when worn. My left eye definitely had lash envy when I put the first one on my right.

The glue is exactly the same as their Premium Eyelashes Stip Eyelash Adhesive with a tapered applicator to make getting a thin, precise strip of adhesive on the lashes easy. Plus, I've never had lashes fall off with this stuff on. They stay until you are ready to take them off!

The last item included in this kit is what appears to be a uniquely shaped tweezer. Unlike a tweezer, however, this applicator has a larger point of contact so that you can press a larger portion of the lashes along the lash line, allowing you to work faster.

I found this kit to be much easier than applying lashes as I would normally (although slightly less easy than those with the string applicators) and think that at $4.99 it's a steal considering all of these products can withstand multiple uses.

Review & Tutorial: Kiss Lashes with String Applicators

If you're like me, you dread putting on false lashes. Between getting the amount of glue, and placement, just right, and getting the lash to stick to my inner and outer corners, I'm ready to throw them out the window after the 4th reapplication. With that kind of attitude, I'm looking for anything to make the application process easier. Cue Kiss Premium Lashes with Applicator Strings.

I thought I would do a first impressions review and tutorial so everyone could see a candid account of how easy these lashes really are to apply. As it turns out, they are pretty great! Check out my first time using them in the tutorial above.

The lashes I'm using are #9 and can be purchased at Walgreens.

Influenster Review: Kiss Nail Dress

A few weeks ago I received my influenster Love VoxBox, and in it I received Kiss Nail Dress (among other things). Influenster is a program that sends it's most active, or "influential", members a complementary box full of goodies to test and review. Directly below is the unboxing video:

This review is all about the Kiss Nail Dress I received and you better listen up because your manicure just got 7 different kinds of fierce and a whole lot easier.

Like most polish strips currently available, Kiss Nail Dress come with an emory board so that once you apply the polish, you can file the rest away for a perfect manicure in minutes. These, however, are specially made to be used both on you fingers and toes. They work well on both and last for ages. Currently, I have reached day 7 on my fingers and can only spot wear on the tips. Not a chip in sight. I can easily see them lasting the full 10 days Kiss calls their upper bound (and them some!). So, for less than $10 (suggested retail $6.99), you can have a salon quality manicure that lasts at least twice as long! Hells yes.

Also included is an insert that shows not only how many different designs Kiss has, but how to taylor them to fit your style! One thing I love about these designs in particular is that they are 3D. I love texture and it's becoming a thing on nails as of late. Rock some studded/striped, or even animal print texture on your nails with some of the prints Kiss offers.

In the picture above, they suggest creating nail art using nails from their imPRESS line as a base. I highly recommend doing this because (and probably will do it, myself) because they can rival the staying power of the Nail Dress. To see a review, click here.

Unlike the Incoco nail strips I reviewed previously, Kiss Nail Dress do not turn into polish on the nails. While there's still no drying time, they remain sticker-like and you don't need nail polish to cleanly remove them. Very handy when traveling!

These are a definite must-try if you come across them! One tip: swipe nail polish removers over your nails before applying to remove natural oils and prolong wear.
