I have a confession: I’m a nail biter. I’ve always been a nail biter. That means I never do anything with my nails, and I probably should to be a better beauty blogger.
But when I got hold of the Kiss Gel Fantasy Nails*, I couldn’t not try them. In fact, being short length, I was hoping they’d be really easy to wear
Not exactly what happened though. Easy to apply? check! Look good? Check! Easy to wear for someone who has no nails? Big fat no. These nails are way longer than I could’ve imagined and it made using my phone really awkward. And as a blogger I need constant access to my twitter account.
But I’m not going to be totally negative, because apart from the length, I really loved these. They were easy to apply, and you’re even given the option of using self-adhesive tabs or nail glue. The tabs only last a few hours, but work really well for short term wear, whereas the glue lasts a good few days. The gel effect is obviously very in right now with so many people opting for this as a long wear polish solution and I’m excited that I finally got to try that look.
I’d definitely consider repurchasing if it was for short term wear such as a night out, as apart from phone use these were fine to wear. The colour isn’t very me, but Kiss sell so many different shades that there’s something for everybody. I’m very tempted to look into some more shades for my work Christmas do. The only thing I would ask for to make me wear Kiss falsies more would be for shorter nails, appropriate for every day wear. Or maybe I just need longer fingers…
What’s your go-to nail style? Do you get acrylics or gels, or do you do it all yourself? Let me know!
