If you asked me a few months ago what my nail care routine was like, my answer would have been “what nail routine?”. My nails were weak and brittle, and consequently I would often bite them (nasty habit!). However, more recently I have really taken more of an interest in caring for my nails and this is evident in the condition of my nails. They are a lot stronger, they do not bend and my cuticles are looking a lot healthier. I can honestly say this is down to two new nail treatments from Kiss - the Cuticle Care and Strengthening kits.
To prep my nails I have been using the Kiss Cuticle Care Daily Maintenance System. In this pack you receive cuticle remover, cuticle oil and a nail balm. I have never used anything like the cuticle remover before so I was amazed the first time I used it. It contains potassium hydroxide which breaks down and loosens excess cuticles, sounds painful but it’s not. In fact, it doesn’t even sting and it makes for a much cleaner manicure. The cuticle oil smells delightful, a bit like marzipan, and contains Jojoba and Almond oil which hydrates and revitalizes your nails. A little of this goes a long way therefore be careful not to apply too much. Finished off with the nail balm, which heals dry cuticles and promotes healthy nail growth, you are ready to paint.
On the days where I want to give my nails a break to breathe, I apply the Kiss Strengthening Manicure System which includes a base coat, a nail tint and the top coat. They are specially formulated with keratin-pro complex to strengthen your nails and allow your nails to breathe. The nail tint provides your nails with a light colour to enhance your nails, with the top coat providing that extra protection.
Pairing these two kits together has been a godsend for me. A few months ago my nails were peeling, soft and generally in poor condition, but after using this for the past few weeks they have improved immensely. This really is a rave review and I would recommend these kits to anyone. They are very affordable at £7.99 each and can be found in your local Superdrug.
