Kiss Toenails - Fancy French Pedis!




Kiss Everlasting French Toenails
I was hanging out with a coworker recently when I noticed her pedicure - a french pedi!  It looked so elegant and simple, I couldn't wait to try it myself.  I gave it a try and wasn't too impressed with the results - a french mani on my nails is one thing, but trying to do a neat design on my toenails is just about impossible.  So I was really excited when Kiss sent me these.  The Everlasting French Toenail kit is a set of 24 glue-on nails designed specifically for toenails (along with sheer pink nail glue and a mini nail file).  They will never chip, and I had no trouble at all finding the right size for my toes.  They were really easy to apply and I wore them for four days before removing them (although none had fallen off, I wanted to paint my nails blue for the 4th).  Kiss Everlasting French Toenails are perfect for these warm-weather days and look great with sandals.  I had never heard of glue-on toenails, but I really enjoyed wearing these and having such fancy-looking toenails!




Kiss Catwalk Toenails
Kiss Catwalk Toenails are just like the Kiss Everlast French Toenails, except with elegant designs on the larger-sized toenails.  This one has rhinestones and silver glittery flower petals.  They are so elegant and fun!  I plan to wear these to the beach.  They were easy to apply, long-lasting, and so cute.  Each pack comes with 24 nails in 12 different sizes, as well as sheer pink-colored nail glue and a mini nail file.


I was really impressed with both sets of these glue-on toenails.  I had never seen these before, but they are a great idea if you're looking for an elegant or a long-lasting pedicure, plus they are great with sandals or toe-baring heels.  Both sets come with little tabs to help with application.  They twist off easily (and actually do many it a lot easier to apply the toenails).  To learn more about Kiss products, visit KissUSA.com or BroadwayNails.com.
These can be purchased at Target, Walmart, ULTA, Walgreens, CVS, and many other stores.

Thanks for reading!!
(and sorry you had to look at my feet... I feel SO WEIRD about posting pictures of my feet on my blog...)

Oh no, no no no. This idea makes me feel queasy I'm afraid. Nothing wrong with your feet, I promise, but toenails should not be made of plastic!

(sorry!)

i love these, have tried them before and really liked them! i have to admit, i'll polish my nails 5 times throughout the day (in crazy ocd mode only of course) but it's hell to get me to polish my toes once every month! i even got acrylics put on my toes one summer haha!

I think they look great on you, but there's no way I'd be able to do that on myself. I have a real issue when my toenails get too long.

Your toes looks exactly like the ones on te box! I could never wear fake toe nails. My toes were weird before, but after 6 years of ballet and grueling/bleeding/blistering toe-shoe use, I probably have hobbit feet (minus the hair).

Kimberly said...

From your photos, I can't tell that they are fake nails. I was looking for a fall off at the cuticle but there isn't one.

If you wear sandals I think it's a great idea to have fake toe nails and, French at that! I know I couldn't paint a French on my toes either.

No, your toes are not weird!

I have seen these in the stores and something about them has always grossed me out. But a friend of mine has a deformed toenail and she wears one on that toe all the time. I never knew until we went shopping together once and she bought some. But they really do look pretty. Talk about an easy pedi!

so cute!

Ice Queen said...

Your toesies look great and pedi pics don't bother me one bit. Post on. :D

I like the look of these and the idea of them, too. I wonder if they would be comfortable in walking shoes while putting in milage? Hmmm... Might be worth trying. :D

Krimly said...

so cool!
thanks for sharing! :)

They're really cute! When I saw these in the store I thought they must be the must awkward things to wear - I guess they worked great for you :)

Cah_nossovicio said...

it's very beautiful and practice!!

Laynie said...

I won't lie, I've not only seen these in the store and laughed, I've actually pointed them out to friends so we could talk about how bizarre they are. I thought for sure they'd look weird and creepy, and just be all-around oogy...

... and then I see your blog. Your feet look so pretty! The nails look so real. It makes me wonder if I could make my little toenail look normal. It has the tiniest little nailbed ever. If I cut it, there's like... no nail there. But if I let it grow just a bit, so there'd be something to stick the nail to...

I know. Creepy. But it might work, right?

Twister said...

They look very natural :o)

Brooke said...

WOW, thanks so much for all the great comments, everyone!!

Kellie - I am EXACTLY like you - it is such a pain to paint my toenails (and even worse to remove polish!!). That's so funny you had acrylics put on your toenails one summer - I didn't even know you could do that!! :)

Skulda, you've been intense on your feet! My fiance's sister is an ice skater and it has really damaged her feet. I've had my feet trampled a few times by big old horses, but that's the worse I've done to them... they are funny shaped on their own though! haha.

Thanks Kimberly and Megan and Pawsies and Krimly and Freshie and Cah and Twister!!

R3Beauty, that's so interesting - I seriously had never seen them before, I'm surprised so many people know about them!

IceQueen - I should have tried them with closed-toed shoes but I didn't. I've got to admit, I am REALLY, REALLY weird about close-toed shoes - my feet feel claustrophobic unless they have tons of toe room. Not sure how these would do for me and close-toed shoes. Next time I wear them I'll try to remember to let you know!

Laynie, I was surprised how natural they looked on my feet - I wasn't expecting them to look so real once I glued them on (but I had the same epiphany when I first tried fake nails - and know I wear them all the time! lol). My little toenail is like BARELY there (can you see it? It is certainly trying not to exist) and this did help me have a bit more of a little toenail. Yeah.. weird. lol!

Thanks for all the kind comments. I feel so... exposed posting pictures of my feet (weird, right? I tell you guys about everything, yet I feel weird posting pics of my feet! haha).

Laynie said...

Really?? I thought I was the only one with a non-existent toenail. It's seriously a little sliver of nail, and people have teased me about it (when they actually SEE it...). I'm not exactly self-conscious about it, but man, it'd be nice to see me with actual pretty toenails!

Flashes of Style said...

Such cute nails! :)

kelliegonzo said...

laynie and brooke, one of my little toenails is non-existent too. it must be an epidemic!

Laynie said...

Kellie- that's weird. Really weird. But cool! :D

Leslee said...

So cute, which reminds me, i need a pedi.

They are so pretty!

I love the look of the Kiss Catwalk toenails! So so pretty =) I don't take care of my toenails and I think glue on toenails are great! I tried some toenails back in summer from Nailene and they worked nicely but these look more natural.

Great post!
