KISS Nail Artist Kit Part Two- Here We Go Again

We're Back!!!!!!!

I said I would keep trying.

I finally figured out a “style” for my nails using the KISS Nail Artist Kit. I had a dream about it! How sad is that? Anyway, my dream was a simple one. That I took two different colors, and alternated them using a criss cross pattern.

I woke up inspired.

L.A. Colors Color Craze Polish

This past week I tried out a few of the colors from L. A. Colors Color Craze Collection. Since I’m crazy for polish and color, they were made for me. First of all, can’t beat that price of a dollar. If you read my other post concerning L.A. Colors, I wasn’t completely enamored by them. Well, that has changed. I do believe that they are my new go to nail color when I am in a rush.

I’m in love. (more…)

Product Review: L.A. Colors

So I can spend a dollar buying many things. Like a pack of M&Ms, or Pixi Stix, a Wet N’ Wild eyebrow stick, and some nail polish from L.A. Colors.  With most cosmetic items that cost a dollar, I don’t have much faith. My motto is that you get what you pay for. Can’t expect too much outta a buck, right?

I was kinda wrong.

I’m not in love with the nail polishes, but for a dollar, I could definitely see myself buying more. Just to try a new color. What can I say, I’m a polish fiend.

Cotton Candy

The Cotton Candy lacquer is very pale. I needed three coats to get a decent color out of it. Still, I was impressed because it gave a nice, hard, shiny finish without a topcoat.  It is a gentle, everyday, neutral nail color. I’m not much of a neutral type of gal, but this works for me.

 

Nectar

What can I say about Nectar? I’m not gonna be around the bush, to me the color looks cheap. I don’t know how to explain it, but there is a finished look of cheaper nail polish, and this has it. The color was just ok. It only took two coats to get a nice color though. I didn’t completely give up on it. I like to layer, so I applied a coat of Wet’ N Wild’s Fast Dry Color in Orange on top, and this is what I got:

Not too bad

 

So, here are my two cents about L.A. Colors:

  • They dry pretty fast, in about two minutes each coat.
  • They finish is nice and glossy.
  • They only cost a dollar!
  • They don’t start to chip until at least three days, and I’m sure with a topcoat it could last longer.

Nailed it or failed it? For a dollar, they nailed it.

I just saw a new line from L.A. Colors called Color Craze that I can’t wait to try. The colors look pretty amazing.
