If you’re like me, then there are few things better than having perfectly shaped and painted nails. But again, if you’re like me, this is often more of a dream than a reality.

Painting your nails yourself is time consuming and never looks as amazing as you’d like, and going in for a manicure can be expensive. And what about those days when you’re suddenly asked out for dinner and don’t have the time to get your nails done?

Well thankfully, relief is in sight with Kiss Gel Fantasy Nails. These super sparkly, ready-to-wear gel nails will be your savior for any occasion.

Here’s what we like (and don’t like) about this product:

•    Easy application through either adhesive tabs or gel glue
•    Package includes 24 nails in a variety of sizes for a perfect fit every time
•    Nails look real
•    Will hold for up to a week

•    Removal can be messy and time consuming
•    Each design only comes in one length; some only come in short while others only come in medium
•    Air bubbles can form under nails, causing a difference in color on nail bed toned parts
•    Nails will occasionally fall off (I once lost a thumb nail while zipping up my pants)

If you’re new to fake nails, I would recommend starting with the "short" length. These are more realistic and manageable and only require a short amount of time to adjust to.

The “medium” length nails look fabulous but do come with some challenges. For me, I struggled with texting, typing on a computer, taking out my contacts and pushing the buttons on my microwave. These activities weren’t impossible, but they certainly weren’t easy.

Kiss Gel Fantasy Nails are removed in one of two ways: 1) If you chose to apply them with the adhesive tabs, simply apply polish remover around the edges, wait 1 minute, then gently peel off the nail. 2) If you chose the glue route, trim down the nails in order to break the protective top coat, then soak nails in an acetone polish remover, and wipe them off when they’re soft. The glue removal is messy and time consuming, which can be annoying if you’re impatient like me.

However, Kiss Gel Fantasy Nails are still by far one of my favorite fake nail products, and I always get plenty of compliments when I wear them.

Additionally, if glitter isn’t your style, Kiss makes artificial French tip nails that are applied and removed in the same way.

So, the next time you’re ready for gorgeous nails, skip the salon and hit the drugstore instead. Or, you can buy these nails online!
