Kiss Everlasting Nails "Salon UV Gel Effect" Update and New Nail Art

It's been 5 days since I put these on.

 So far, everything is still intact. And there is no evidence that water seeped under the nails. Today, I removed the blue polish and the stickers. It took a little bit of filing to get the stickers off.

I decided to quit being a ninny and attempt some free hand nail art.
I saw a technique on youtube for painting french tips. Instead of broad brush strokes, I patted the polish at the french tip bottom edge line, and pulled it up to the tip.
 This is two coats of Sage in the City

 Doing my right hand was not as hard as I thought. But then again, I was just painting lines.

L-R: Sinful Colors Opal Glitter, Wet n Wild Sage in the City, Kiss Nail Art Paints~Deep Purple, Beach Green, Gold Glitter, Beach Pink, Milani Green

And since I can never leave well enough alone, I added Sinful Colors Opal Glitter over the green.

What do you think of my nails?

Thanks for stopping by!

I think it looks great! You're brave to do free hand nail art, I don't think I could. But it looks awesome! And I'm glad they're lasting a while! :)

Oh thanks Olivia! I guess I'm getting used to the brushes so it wasn't as scary painting with my left hand.

These nails have lasted so well. They've renewed my faith in them.:D

Thanks for stopping by!

wow,you're nails look really nice,Kay. I tried some freehand last week with the Kiss nail art brushes,but I could not keep my hand steady,so I had mixed results. Do you happen to have a link to the tutorial?

Hi Thalie!

This is a link to love4nails youtube video. She is so talented, and has given me many ideas and inspirations. Here's a link to how she paints french tips:

I hope you can copy and paste this to work for you. I don't know how to embed. The title of the youtube video is: EASY QUICK STAR NAIL ART DESIGN TUTORIAL PINK GLITTER

Keep practicing with the nail art brushes. It took me some time to get the hang of it. I still can't make anything other than lines and dots. But now I don't have too many glops from the paint brush dripping while I'm trying to paint a line.

Hope this help! Take care!
