Quick Wedding Nails

Ok, as promised I am here to share how to get your nails looking fabulous on a budget for your wedding.

Weddings are very costly ranging from $10k upwards of $300k so with all of the expenses in mind, saving a few dollars here and there can really help. One great way to save money is on your nails. Many gals opt for a day at the nail shop getting a french manicure for the big day. Well if you are on a budget or don’t have a nail shop close to you. At home nail kits are a great alternative.

I recently was sent the Kiss Nails Everlasting french manicure and I have to say I was genuinely surprised at how beautiful they looked. I was skeptical at first, seeing as how press on nails have been around for decades and have not been that great. I thought the packaging was a little generic, so I did not have very high hopes about the outcome.

To my astonishment, they were easy to apply and came with two options, the press on option or the glue on method. I chose the glue on method. This was very easy to use and dried quick. The whole manicure took about 10 minutes if that.

So my skepticism has been changed!! I was very happy to find out that there are a variety of options making it super simple to change up your nail look quickly and easily. Especially for those who are not gifted in the nail polish department. I suffer from nail on cuticle syndrome for some reason, i just can’t get it perfect!! These help immensely with that!

The Kiss Nails retail at walmart.com for $4.97-$5.97 (depending on style) which is a huge savings compared to acrylic or gel nails that cost $30 -$60 depending on your location.

Now don’t get me wrong, or think I’m an acrylic basher! Acrylics while beautiful do offer one thing that many brides don’t consider. They are semi-permanent, so if you only planned on wearing acrylics for your wedding, your nails will be a literal hot mess taking them off after the fact. Or if you plan to keep them you can count on a $30-$40 a month expense in upkeep. If you can afford it and have time, then go for it, I love acrylics and think they are great!

But if you are on a budget and trying to save money and time, the Kiss Nails are a great alternative.
