Mani Monday – Fresh Air

Hey, look! I’m actually on time for a Mani Monday. I graduated college this past Saturday so hopefully that will mean that I will post most often and regularly. Because I graduated, I wanted to have some nice nails.

I have a confession to make – I have never been to a nail salon. My main reason is because I just love doing my nails, I find it relaxing. Another is the cost, I can create a decent manicure without paying an outrageous amount of money for it. For my graduation, I was thinking of what my nails were going to be like. Do I get a cute nail polish? Do I go to a salon? What do I do? I decided to meet my thought halfway.

I got theย Kiss Nailsย Gel Fantasy nails in the styleย Fresh Air. I bought these at CVS and they were a little over $8. They are a nice pink color that matched and complimented my dress.

If you follow my blog, you will notice that I have used press on nails in the past and they haven’t always been the best option. I love these nails, they are short and I feel like I applied the nails better than the last time. Even though I love the nails, there are some issues with them. The glue that it comes with is hard to press out, the tube is hard and when you are applying the nails with the non-dominant hand, it is a struggle. My recommendation would be to either use another type of glue, I saw one that came in a nail polish-type bottle and i feel like that would be better for the application. Also, you could have someone help you.

For a manicure that’s less than $10, these nails are amazing.
