Elegant Touch & Kimmie Kyees Nails

when it comes to current beauty trends, nails are now just as important to your overall look as your eye liner, gloss and bronzer. from nail polish and wraps to art sets and press on nails, letting your tips be the expression of your style is so easy to do.

the uk's top nail care brand, Elegant Touch, has created fabulous products over the past 30 years and they're moving full steam ahead with their products. they've also recently collaborated with celebrity manicurist, Kimmie Kyees. not only do her clients include Rihanna, Kelly Clarkson, Katy Perry, Salma Hayek and Eva Longoria, but she's worked on numerous editorial and ad campaigns. her work is everywhere!

i was sent some fun nails from the brand, including the Green Glitter set you see in the pic, created by Kimmie herself.

these nails are different than the typical glue-on nails because they use adhesive tabs to hold the nails in place ~ and they stay put! i typed, did housework, washed my hands numerous times, and they didn't slide a centimeter. removal was just as impressive. a little cuticle oil, a bit of a lift on each side and the nails came off without damaging my natural nail.


Elegant Touch Envy Nail Wraps work on both fingers and toes. Gold Bengal Metallic is the style you see {also available in Silver Bengal and Zebra}. these were perfect for adding an accent nail to my hands, but i did eventually use all of them on my fingers. these are like other nail wraps, but are also unique ~ a base and top coat are recommended in the application, but unlike nail polish-based wraps, are removed by peeling off, like a sticker.

i'd have to say i like the Wraps best, but the Kimmie Kyees nail set gave me the opportunity to be really bold and daring, channeling my inner rock star... :) 

the entire Elegant Touch Nails collection {yes, even more exciting nail goodies to discover!} is currently available at Ulta stores nationwide and on be sure to also visit Kimmie's website, for fabulous pics and nail inspiration from the artist.
