My Kiss Nail Dress Obsession

kiss2

Probably one of my most favorite brands is Kiss and their sister brand Broadway nails. The other day I had an event to go to, however I had no time to do my nails – and believe me, they were not looking pretty! So on my way out I grabbed one of the nail dresses that I had on hand and applied it on my way downtown where the event was held. At the event my nails were complimented not once, but twice – and it’s always nice to receive compliments on your nails, especially when you didn’t have to put in lots of time or effort to make them look as good as they do, lol!

I’ve written about Kiss Nail Dress before – which you can check out here, but I just wanted to update you on the Nail Dress options and the one’s that I like to keep on hand. I’m a stereotypical New Yorker in that I tend to wear a lot of dark colors (who am I kidding, if I could I’d dress like Johnny Cash all the time – all in black), so playing with accessories and my nails gives me that much needed pop of color.

The nail dresses from left to right are Peignoir, Push-Up, Princess, and Shrug. I first tried Shrug back when I received my Love VoxBox almost a year ago. I loved it so much that I always make sure to have a set of them on hand. I remember at first being iffy about the style, and then I put them on and was surprised by how much I actually like them.  I picked up Princess and Peignoir at the drugstore, I haven’t tried them yet, but I’m always surprised with how good Kiss Nail Dress looks that I’m sure these will look super pretty.

I received Push-Up, the set I’m most excited about in my latest VoxBox- the Holiday VoxBox. It’s super pretty, and I love the green and hot pink feather design. It looks perfect for Spring and/or Summer! At the time I’m writing this I’m still rocking my Impress Nails, so I can’t show you what Push-Up looks like on – but you can see lots of reviews and pictures on the Kiss Nail Dress review page on Influenster here.

Goody QuikStyle Review

I have pretty long wavy/straight hair – and usually it takes quite a while for my hair to air dry. And recently I’ve been trying to lay off of the heat products just for the sake of keeping my hair from getting irrevocably damaged, plus curling/ironing my hair takes a lot more time than I have these days.

So when Influenster sent me the Goody Quikstyle paddle brush I was really interested in trying a product that claimed it would not only dry my hair faster, but would also help me style it- without heat. Now I normally will roll and pin my hair in a bath towel after my shower in the hopes that it’ll absorb some of that moisture. The starring feature for the Goody Quikstyle brush is that it has absorbent microfiber bristles that work to absorb about 30% of water in your hair – which makes for even faster styling!

Not only to the microfiber bristles absorb some of that excess water, but they’re made with an antibacterial microfiber that keeps the brush clean – although you’ll also want to cleanse it regularly, and when you do make sure to tap the back of the brush to rejuvenate the bristles.

I really enjoyed the design of the brush and found that despite it’s bulky appearance it was not only effective in soaking up water from my hair, and even significantly reducing frizz, but it also felt good in my hand. Turns out, this brush was designed to be lightweight, but effective (with rear-screen ventilation) – while avoiding hand fatigue. The bristles seemed flat after a couple uses, so to remove the hair I ran a fine tooth comb between the rows, which removed stray strands and then I rinsed the brush itself, turning it over and tapping the back until the bristles stood at attention again – it was like new!

The Goody Quikstyle Brush comes in a paddle version – the one I tried, and a convex half-round shape. You can find out more about the brushes here, and if my review hasn’t convinced you that this brush is amazing then please feel free to check out what other Influensters had to say about the Quikstyle brush here! Thanks for reading, and if you have any questions at all about the brush and my experience with it then just drop me a comment below!
