Taking My Manicure To New Heights | The KISS Gel Fantasy Collection*


You know when a brand absolutely nails [all the puns intended] the PR game perfectly? Well, Kiss certainly do. I just happened, by chance, to ask at the little shop by mine if they'd taken any parcels in off couriers for me recently... only for him to emerge with this WHOPPING HUGE BOX, doing a massive lol at the thought of me carrying it back to mine on my crutches. [I did it tho. Even though I got stuck in 2 doorways, was staggering like I'd shat me pants & tripped up the stairs like 4 times. AV THAT, logic and physical limitations!]

You may have seen on my Insta stories the end result of me ferociously opening this raaaaaging great box. And the end result of this massive cardboard monstrosity, is that it's become a hamster playbox for Clive Balls. But back to the good stuff [soz CB] - inside the box pre-hamster-times, was the most incredible helium filled balloon, full of nails from the brand new Kiss Gel Fantasy Nails collection... and a few packs of these new baes to try out for myself. 

I won't even lie, I nearly shed a tear when this glorious great balloon came floating up out of the box & smacked me right in my massive face. HOW BLOODY NICE?! It was one of them Am I Zoella now? moments. Even though the answer is still very much a resounding no.

Just look at those designs. How stunning, please? These falsies have to be, I think, some of the best stick on nails I've ever tried. Ever. Their gel appearance makes them look incredibly real; like I've just paid a small fortune to sit in a nail salon having an artiste craft my bespoke talons... instead of the reality of me sticking them on 5 minutes before I'm due to leave the house, cursing myself for always running late. I love the fact they come with sticky patches and nail glue; so you can choose how to apply them. And the fact there's like, 24-28 nails - of various sizes - in every box; so you defo get your money's worth [and stacks of wear] from them.

The KISS Gel Fantasy Nails styles that I was very kindly treated to were:

- Fanciful* [the nude and glitter ones] 
- Lit Within* [the pale pink, stiletto shaped ones]
- Faux Real* [the glittery ones]
- And Ab Fab* [these ones aren't in the photos but are probably my faves because of their colour and shape. The reason they're awol is that in typical me-style, as soon as this parcel of glory & triumph arrived; I ripped the box open & applied them... before I'd even thought of the photo opportunities. And it wasn't salvageable.]

I'm by no means a manicure pro - and my patience is shaky at the best of times [e.g. I'm a cranky old hag, angry at the world 87.5% of the time] but even I can nail applying & maintaining these bad boys. The amount of compliments I've had on the glittery ones has been insane, too. Normally it's just comments like 'Wow are you ever going to sort those cuticles out hun' or 'Jeez, how flaky and sh*t are your nails lololol' ... so having people admire them & shake their collective heads in disbelief that I'd only stuck them on ten minutes earlier was a proper nice change.

I'd one million, trillion, infinity times recommend trying out KISS stick on gel nails if you're new to the game & wanna give the false nails life a try. As I say, they come with adhesive patches and nail glue; so the freedom to experiment is all yours. And they're a fraction of the price of going to the salon & getting someone else to do ya talons for ya; at just £7.99 a pop. 

There's such a wide range of designs available that there's something to suit every outfit, personal preference and occasion. And if you secure & care for them properly; they'll last you at least 4-7 days without coming off [dont start fiddling & picking at them like I always do, huns - defo lowers the life expectancy.]
