During the summer months and pretty much year around I spend a lot of my time in either flip flops or no shoes at all and to me the perfect pedicure is essential, but I don’t always have the time or the money to spend in the nail salon for a pedicure that will end up chipping and looking pretty bad within a week or so depending on what my schedule looks like, so when I was offered the chance to review the New Catwalk Toenails from Kiss I was intrigued I’ve never worn artificial toenails before but I thought it was worth a shot!
About Kiss Catwalk Toenails:
The Kiss Catwalk Toenails are a new addition to the already impressive line of Kiss products and are available in a silver flower French style, each toenail comes with a tab to make application easier! Each kit contains 24 nails in 12 sizes, 2g glue and a manicure stick.
I was sent a box of the new Kiss Catwalk Toenails to try out, and I will admit to first being a little iffy on the toenails. I’ve seen them in stores before now but I had never tried them, I thought that there was no way that they could even come close to looking real but when I got a chance to review them and attend the webinar on them I thought I didn’t have anything to loose! Now I normally keep my feet and nails pretty by weekly visits to the nail salon during the summer months especially and that can be very time consuming and costly and now that I’m a SAHM, well I just don’t have the time nor the extra cash to pamper myself that way, so I figured if these toenails worked as they claimed I would no longer have to spend $25-$30 a week on a fresh pedicure!
First I started out by sizing the artificial toenail to my natural nail and laying them out so that I didn’t have to stop in the middle of application to find the next nail:
Next I begin applying them as directed to my natural nails and just between me and you if it weren’t for the cool little tab there would be no way I could handle these tiny nails for my pinky toe! Always, always make sure you use enough of the nail glue to secure the nail to your natural nails so that you don’t have ugly air bubbles (I learnt that in the webinar ;0) ) which is very handy knowledge, so be sure to apply it to both the artificial nail and your natural nail, then starting at your cuticle lay (don’t push hard) the nail down on your natural nail. If you do have excess glue you can use a Q-Tip or the manicure stick (included in the kit) to wipe it off. I like to leave the tabs on until I’m completely finished with the foot so that while breaking them off I don’t get the ugly air bubbles. Here is one of my finished feet before I removed the tabs:
Then I applied the others to my other foot just as I did the first one. I was very pleasantly surprised at how my new pedicure came out in the end:
Isn’t is so pretty and in under 15 minuets and it could be all yours for around $6.99So I’m defiantly convinced that my new found knowledge and an awesome new product I can have a beautiful salon looking pedicure year around and my husband won’t gripe about me spending money in the salon!
I do want to stress that the proper way to take them off without damaging your natural nails is DO NOT PRIE THEM OFF!!! You need to soak them in acetone or get one of the Kiss All or 1 Artificial Nail Remover, now you can’t soak your feet in the bottle but you can put the acetone in a bowl and soak them.
I have been asked numerous times since applying the new Kiss Catwalk Toenails where and who I had do my pedicure because it was gorgeous and it’s so funny the look on their faces when I’ve told them they are artificial nails they were pretty shocked! I’ve been wearing them for about 4 days now and they still look as great as they did the night I put them on, no chips and no air bubbles! I will now be using the Kiss toenails instead of spending hours in the nail salon and the cash that my family can save for your family trip to Disney!! Thank you Kiss and Broadway Nails for showing me this awesomely cool product!
