TIFF Survival Guide with KISS

The Toronto International Film Festival is in full swing!  Maybe you're going star-sighting, maybe you're seeing some movies, or maybe you're living it up at a TIFF suite.

TIFF Survival Guide with KISS

Whatever you choose to do, KISS has some must-haves to carry in your clutch, to survive TIFF 2016.

So you've tossed the usual suspects into your purse:  the bobby pins, the band-aids, the safety pins, a mirror compact, the mints - what are we missing?

Let's start with nailS.  Amp up your little black dress with some quick press-on nails!  Whether it's solid colours, nail art, or accent nails, all it takes is 5 minutes to transform your claws.

KISS TIFF Survival press on nails

While I'm not a press-on nail gal myself (I LOVE sitting down and busting out some free-hand nail art), I know a bunch of people who are big fans of the press-on nail.  My pick of the bunch would be the KISS imPRESS Gel Manicure in 'Bells & Whistles' (centre).  The matte dark blue with a gold glitter accent nail is a beautiful combination.  Beyond how pretty they are, I think that KISS has improved the size of the nails, with 'Bells & Whistles'.  In the past I've noticed that the KISS nails tend to be too wide to wear comfortably, and needed to be filed down, but the updated version seem to look a bit more narrow, and more proportionately sized.

There is no better to glam up a look than with a pair of falsies.

KISS Blooming Lashes differ from other drugstore false lashes by being "multi-angled", meaning that the lashes sit at a variety of vertical angles, to emulate real eyelashes.  And what are falsies without lash glue?  The KISS Strip Lash Adhesive with Aloe provides a dermatologist-tested way to hold your falsies in place.  The glue is black, so it won't disrupt that fab black cat eyeliner.  And a little birdie told be that the glue adhesive can also be used when doing nail art, as an alternative to painting the skin around your nail with liquid latex or liquid palisade, for an easy clean-up.

Finally, we have the product that I am most excited about.  This is the KISS Fix It Up! Silk Wrap Repair Kit.  I've heard about this kit before, but had only seen it in the US, so I'm really happy that this will be available to Canadians.

KISS Fix It Up! Silk Wrap Repair Kit

Many of us nail lovers have dealt with a broken nail.  You know the kind where it only breaks part way, but it's still attached, and you have to watch your pretty nail die a slow and painful death?  Up until now I had been doing the repair trick that I saw on Pinterest that involved a teabag, nail glue, and a file.  But with the Silk Wrap Repair Kit, everything you need is in one box - silk wraps, brush on glue, dipping powder, a nail brush, and a buffing block.  Even though I want my nails to grow into long cat claws, it takes a few tries, so when I inevitably break one (or all) of my nails, I'll be sure to bust out this kit.

Is there anything that you have in your purse that I left out?  Let me know in the comments below.
