Easy nail art with Kiss Nail Tattoos
Hello my loves! I hope you all had a great Valentine's Day! It's PiggieLuv's favorite holiday, you know. He dresses up for it all year round LOL Okay, so I have some really easy nail art for you today. Click to find out more because you'll want to read this!
Kiss Nails, a brand with a wide range of nail art supplies! Imagine my excitement!!! I'm gonna show you a few this week, starting with the nail tattoos, so keep your eyes peeled!
These Kiss nail tattoos are really easy to use. You can buy them here in the Kiss webshop, they offer lots of good stuff as well as free shipping. Most of their products are also sold at Ici Paris XL.
I made a little tutorial and I have some examples of what you can do with them. I had a lot of fun with these so I hope you enjoy my article!
By the way, don't my fingers look super creepy in this picture? I think it's the neon polish that makes them look so tan!
I tried to be too precise with the placement of the tattoos and you really don't have to be, so I'm glad I tried this for myself first. So I can teach you how NOT to do it, you know! LOL
And despite the fact that I received these products for free (yay!), you can trust that my review will be my completely honest opinion!
This product gets my blogger stamp of approval! Hahaha!
My only concern about this product is that in my opinion, €5,99 is kinda steep for a pack of tattoos. You can get two, maybe three manis out of this, so that comes down to €2 per mani. I like doing my own nails to save a buck so I'd rather do hand painted nail art, but it's a great alternative when you want something smashing on your nails, but don't have the time, patience or skills to make something!
- Kiss Nail Tattoos (duhh)
- Cotton pads (one will be enough)
- Some water, a bottle is convenient for this
- Your favorite top coat
Start with painting your nails the regular way, any color you choose will be fine but a lighter color will have a nice contrast with the black tattoos.
In preparation for your nail tattoos, take the cotton pad and soak it. Really easy: Press it on top of the bottle, turn the bottle upside down for a second and it's done! That's all you need for one hand, so now we can start!
Now you peel off the clear plastic from the tattoo, and this is where you have to pay attention to your nails. The side you just took the plastic off of, is kinda sticky. So when you put it down on your nail, make sure it's place correctly. No take backsies! So put the end on your cuticle first and then slowly lower it over your nail, with a motion like a lever.
What's really convenient here is that the smart people who made this product, put an image of the tattoo on the back of the paper. That way, you'll know exactly how to place it!
About 5 seconds is enough! You'll feel the paper start to come loose and you can slide it around.
Now slide it towards the end of your nail, carefully, and remove the paper completely.
Another difference between regular tats and nail tattoos: these are way easier to clean up. The other ones make weird slimy blobs when you try to wipe away the excess. The Kiss nail tattoos remove easily, maybe even easier than polish...
As you can see, each tattoo has a different design, so you won't get 'boring' nails. Not that they could ever truly be boring with a pattern like this!
I hope you can follow these steps and use your Kiss nail tattoos as easily and with as much fun as I have! I've showed you the purple nails, the green for the tutorial and I have one example left for you (the one in the first pic)...
Thanks for reading and be sure to visit the Kiss webshop to get some of these tattoos for yourself! Most of their products are also sold at Ici Paris XL
