Temperatures have plummeted and we have all hauled out our thickest, warmest coats to bundle ourselves up this winter. This season has always been a time to throw on every jersey, jacket, scarf and pair of fuzzy socks we own, a fine balance between fashion and anti-freeze layered clothing. Yet, this year, with the cold, gusty winds and masked Covid-19 protocols staying firmly in place, there is even less space on our bodies to make a statement!

No need to fear, when it comes to making an impact, no one has you more sorted than KISS. With exciting new nail colours, designs and products, along with their luxuriously gorgeous magnetic lashes, you can stand out and show off this winter. 

Over the last two years, there has never been a bigger emphasis put on our hands and fingers. Constantly washing, sanitizing, everyone is ultra-aware of every touch, grasp and connection they make with objects or others. Therefore, your hands are the perfect place to start your fashion statement and with KISS on your side, you are spoilt for choice when choosing what you want to adorn your nails with. 

KISS Impress Nails are a polish-free press-on manicure with a focus on flawless execution while being as hassle-free as possible. The secret to the immaculate fit of these nails is the NEW PureFit Technology, which allows them to be both comfortable to wear and look as natural as your own painted nail. Using these press-on nails requires no glue, no steady hand at the end of a nail brush and is as easy as choosing your favourite look, lining it up with the corresponding nail, pressing it on, and then going out and showing it off! Done in minutes and always looking fantastic – this is the revelation your nail game needed!

Impress Colour (RSP149,95) features nails with stunning, solid colours that can be used to add a pop of colour to your style or can be stripped down to elegant and refined nudes for a more sophisticated or understated look. This range shines in its excellent attention to detail and pristine execution.

Impress Design (RSP189,95) is a range filled with salon-style worthy nails, embellished with exciting and on-trend designs to take your nail art to the next level. From sparkling diamante sets to intricate line and silhouette work to calm, beautiful, bespoke looking painted nails, Impress Design allows you to skip the salon and achieve mesmerising nails with zero hassle.

Kiss Gel Fantasy Nails are application nails that champion a stunning gel finish and flawless fit. These durable, flexible nails wear up to seven days and come with two different application options. If you prefer using glue, simply apply the glue to the artificial nail and your own nail (after thoroughly washing your hands) and gently hold down for five seconds. Otherwise, this nail set also comes with super easy adhesive tabs; co-ordinate the correct size adhesive tab with the corresponding nail, apply the adhesive tab to your natural nail and then peel off the film to reveal the sticky side to the artificial nail. Align with your cuticle and then press down on the nail several times until it is firmly in place – and boom! Just like that, you have gorgeous nails. 

The Kiss Gel Fantasy Nail comes in both a Colour (R139,95) and Design (R169,95) variant, allowing you to find the exact style and colour you are looking for.

Not only does Kiss allow you to skip the salon with their press on nails, but also arrange to bring the salon to you! With Kiss’ Salon Dip Kits, you can get expert looking nails without a UV light, gel nail polish or acrylic nails. Instead, simply dip your nails or artificial nail tips into a powder pigment after applying the included Base Gel and afterwards seal it in with the Activator liquid.  Also included is a simple guide on exactly how to use the kit (you can also find step-by-step DIY tutorials on Kiss’ website!). Said to last up to or more than two weeks (twice as long as gel or acrylic nails) and done in the comfort of your home and at your convenience, Salon Dip Kits come in beginner packs and colour variations, meaning that they’re the next best kids on your block.

Kiss has also just released a brand new application glue that is unique in its gorgeous pink tint! Kiss PowerFlex Pink Nail Glue (R74,95) is a nail application glue that sports a pink shimmer which not only helps you keep track of where you have applied the glue when working with artificial nails, but can also be used to repair natural nails, adding a healthy, glowing, rose tint to damaged nails. This glue also has an ultra-accurate point tip applicator that allows you to achieve a precise and clean application of your glue. With dual uses of both a traditional nail glue and a smoothing agent for damaged nails, the power of pink is your new best friend!

With our canvas masked and cut in half, it has never been more impertinent to work with what we have. Forget your favourite shade of lipstick or the sparkly lip balm you always have on hand, this year it is all eyes, eyes, eyes! And Kiss has the ultimate solution to emphasise them: Magnetic Lashes. If they aren’t already, these game-changing lashes are about to become your new go-to. As easy as lining your eyelid with the Magnetic Liner and popping your lashes straight on top: no hassles, no issues, no long struggle with wayward strands, ultimate effect.

So, let’s make the most out of this winter! We now have every reason to bust out our inner fashionistas and make the most of our current situation. Whether it’s a sparkly press on nail, a solid, gel colour finish or a pair of scintillating lashes, let’s let everyone know that we are here to be seen and show up as our most confident, curated self.
