Beauty Rhi-view: Kiss everlasting French Manicure


I've been a fan of Kiss' press-on products for a few years now so I was really excited to try their everlasting French Manicure kit when I received it as a sample from Influenster.

Since it was my first time using a glue-on style fake nail there was a bit of a learning curve but I managed to have both hands done in under 15 minutes and man did they look gorgeous! The main issue I was having was knowing just how much glue each nail needed to set properly. For the first few fingers I had enough to make them stick but you could see if you looked at them closely that there were parts where no glue was. This also became a problem the next day when my 4 year old had a tantrum in a store and as I went to pick her up she caught one and it ripped off right there in the store. Ouch!!!

After a day wearing them though, I found that because my natural nails are VERY flat my fingers were all very sore from the pressure of the nails trying to lay curved. So I went and bought some acetone polish remover and spent the better part of an hour (we were watching a movie and it took more than 2/3 of it to get them and all the glue off). It was not my idea of easy at all. Not to mention the fact that it was extremely messy.

So overall, while these are awesome looking and will last for days they might not be for flat fingered types or those who don't want to spend an hour getting them off. I would, however, highly recommend them for special occasions like weddings or as a budget friendly alternative to going to the salon for those who don't mind the removal process.

I also have one great tip I want to share! Make a note of what nail # (found under the tip of each) you wear on each finger so that the next time you want to apply Kiss nails you can find them quicker. Mine, for example, are:
Pinkie = 13
Ring = 12
Middle = 9
Index = 10
Thumb = 2
