Over the last two years, my nail art hobby has grown in terms of drawer space and what I wish I had at the beginning was a starter kit that just had bits of the best stuff so I could have a taste of everything. Kind of like a nail art buffet. Earlier this year, Kiss introduced the Salon Secrets Nail Art Starter Kit ($16.99) which has everything from loose glitter, decals, brushes and dotting tools and rhinestones to create almost any nail art trend out there! It can be a bit overwhelming to look at everything in the kit and figure out what to do so thankfully there is starter guide that shows examples of designs to try.
I literally had this kit out for days on my desk trying to narrow down what I wanted to do on my nails. The loose glitter spoke to me, but I wanted a design that could withstand a little bit of wear so I went with the nail decals which can be used over nail polish or on top of your imPRESS Press-On manicure! The top coat that is included with the set is fairly quick drying although not the shiniest finish I have seen.
I didn’t try out the other elements of the kit, but what I can say about the decals is that they were of very good quality. I trimmed a few to fit my nails and they stuck on seamlessly and securely. I didn’t even bother to use a top coat for the first day because they were that secure, but after my shower I noticed the corners lifting a little bit, so I sealed them in with the Kiss top coat. The decals came off easily by getting underneath them with a cuticle stick so no intense scrubbing was necessary.
You can do A LOT with this little kit and I actually created this manicure on the go at a friend’s house while were getting ready for an event so it just goes to show how you can take this kit, throw in your bag and have a really fun piece of work on your nails in under 30 minutes! All done by you!
Kiss Salon Secrets Nail Art Starter Kit is available at Walmart, London Drugs, Jean Coutu, and Target.
