In February I featured the KISS Nail Artist Dali Purple, Pink, Light Blue Kit* with an abstract look here and today I have a second set, the KISS Nail Artist Gala Black, White, Silver Kit* with yet another attempt in my quest to somehow do nail art.
The KISS Nail Artist Gala Black, White, Silver Kit comes with a black, white, and silver glitter polish each with a long, pointed brush for nail art. It also comes with two sheets of nail art stencils (30 designs), however the stencils are stickers and not incredibly reusable. I found even going from one nail to another using the stencils, polish transferred and it became messier, so I see myself using the stencils mainly if I want to do an easy accent nail. You also have to make sure your base colour is 100% dry before you use them.
The polishes contained in the KISS Nail Artist Gala Black, White, Silver Kit are all good quality and the both the black and white are quite opaque and don’t require multiple coats which is a huge benefit if you’re using them for nail art in particular. The silver glitter also provides really good coverage. I am still not quite used to using nail stripers, as you have to make sure you don’t have too much polish on the brush so it doesn’t drip down and also you aren’t holding it very close to your nail. However I decided to use them to try a striped look, and although it wasn’t perfect it is definitely much easier to get a long, thin, straight line using them rather than a normal polish.
For the look pictured I started off with a base of Essence The Green & The Grunge (reviewed here) before using the polishes from the KISS Nail Artist Gala Black, White, Silver Kit to do basically random stripes. I am still a nail art novice so I know this could use a lot of improvement, but I thought it looked pretty and I did get quite a few compliments. It’s also basic enough that you could do it on both hands. The polishes I used all dried quickly and had no issues with chipping.
Overall, I really like all the nail art products from KISS and the KISS Nail Artist Gala Black, White, Silver Kit is no exception. Although I used these polishes to create the look I shared here, the possibilities are pretty infinite when it comes to a set like this and I know that I will get lots of use out of these polishes in the future.
How comfortable are you with nail art? I’m going to probably keep sharing my amateur looks but at least they aren’t too difficult to replicate at home if you want to!
