Manicure Monday: KISS Gel Fantasy

Last year I experimented with a press-on nail and I loved them, so when I saw KISS come out with press on GEL nails, I knew I had to try them.

One of my favorite vloggers, Toni Sevdalis, said she loved this brand of nails so when I saw them in Target a few weeks ago I jumped at them. After being a little tired of my nails last week, I decided to try my hand (pun intended) of putting on these fake gel nails. I wanted to go full force though... instead of using the press on stickers, I opted to use the nail glue.



Applying the nails took me about 20 minutes... it probably could've taken me half the time but I was watching TV and taking my time. The nail glue that comes with the nails is pretty strong, almost a similar consistency to Krazy Glue and maybe a little bit of a similar hold. All I did was follow the directions that came with the kit, apply the nail glue on the back of the nail and on your cuticle, press and hold.

I made a few mistakes along the way and applied the wrong size nail to the wrong finger but with some nail polish remover, I was able to fix it.

At the end of the ordeal, I had a set of beautiful, fake nails. My mom and sister were stunned -- they didn't think they looked fake and thought I did a pretty good job.




I LOVE having fake nails, especially long nails like these. I felt like Khloe Kardashian in the best way possible. Having long nails makes me feel fancy, chic and like a badass bitch. I loved holding my phone, typing, putting on makeup... it just completely changes you as a person. (LOL, dramatic much?)

I didn't feel like they prohibited me from doing anything so they weren't annoying in that aspect... however, the nails did pop off at random times and for the few days I had them on, I carried nail glue around with me to be able to put them back on easily. I applied glue to the same few nails a few times and it didn't change the nail or make them weaker. It was fine to just reapply instead of wasting another nail.

I had the nails on for four days but after that, I was over them. I'm just the type of person who removes nail polish after a few days, I get bored easily so on Monday last week I removed the nails with nail polish remover.

They popped off pretty easily but I did have to soak them for a bit. My real nails weren't super messed up, I just used some of my Formula X Cleanse XCEL (a nail cleanser) to remove the gook and let my nails breathe for a day.

I will definitely be using these Gel Fantasy nails again and I can't wait to buy more colors!

Have you ever tried these fake gel polish nails?
