Review: KKCenterHk N.NAIL 2.5mm Circle Glitter-Green Sea Green [NNAIL-HS728A-2-5mm]

This post contains a product sample.

There's nothing I like less than doing a product review of a product I hate. Unfortunately I have a doozy of one to share with you today. Ironically, I was doing this manicure in support of National Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Awareness Month which is also in June. I completely forgot about that, so I suppose next year I will blog about that topic more along with headaches. Anyway, I say it's ironic because boy was working with the glitter traumatic.

Today I have NNAIL-HS728A-2-5mm to show you. KKCenterHk sells this for $8 for 10 grams of sea green circular 2.5mm glitter. Before I show you my full manicure picture, let me show you pictures of the aftermath.

This glitter is awful because it bleeds with top coat. So I thought to myself, OK, I won't use topcoat. I applied 3 coats of Sinful Colors Toyko Pearl and then just pressed some of the glitters on to my nails. As you can see from the pictures, by the next day most of the glitter had already come off, or the color itself had come off. Traces of color were left on some parts of my nails. Where the glitter didn't fall of on it's own, it stuck to my nails and was pretty difficult to remove. I couldn't win either way!

I also want to say this glitter is a bit dangerous and I'm not trying to be over dramatic but as you can see, some of the glitter got itself stuck right under my eye. I kept wondering why my eye was hurting and then I looked in the mirror.

So not only can I pretty much not use this on my nails, but nor do I really want to. I did try using it in a franken. The good news is I made a really gorgeous franken, but the glitter started to melt and of course bleed. I really have no idea what I'm going to do with the rest of the glitter at this point in time. Save it for some crafts? I hate to just waste anything but I've thought about just tossing it.

 (my franken - pretty! hope to do a full manicure with it soon :) )

Here's what I was trying to go for with my manicure. I used Pure Ice Champagne on the accents. Too bad this turned out so awful because I thought it was a really cute idea!

(I specifically marked this last picture so anyone seeing this picture on the web can find my review & read it.)

So it stinks that this was such a let down.. but KKCenterHK does have a ton of other great products!

  1. Whoa, that looks awful! And am I the only one who thinks $8 is waaay overpriced for glitter? Here it would only be like €0,50

    This is why I love your reviews, you're not afraid to say what you really think, while still staying polite. And I know what you mean about the glitter getting stuck under your eye! I was seeing a flare just over my right eye all day yesterday, I thought it was a hair that I kept seeing but I couldn't get rid of it. Turns out it was a piece of glitter under my eyebrow *deep sigh* I used that glitter over 2 months ago! Still keeps popping up everywhere...

    1. definitely way too overpriced for glitter. especially glitter you can't use as intended. glad I didn't pay for this.

      thank you - I do try :)my eye is still irritating me of and on every now and then. I think maybe it did get in my eye at some point and left some color behind or scratched my eye a little bit. This glitter definitely keeps popping up in weird places. Its obnoxious. I also found some mixed in with some frozen ground beef.
