Reader Review Friday: Kisslock Manicure Set


It is Molly again, and I'm back for another guest review!  This review
features the Kisslock Manicure Set in Provencal.  These retail for
$25, and have been released in certain colors.  It is a great little
set; however, the inside of it has gotten a bit scratched up due to
the metallic objects on the inside.  Maybe I'm just too picky, but it
is something that I noticed and wanted people to be aware of.  Sorry
if the image quality isn't stellar.  Getting pictures of this small
item can be difficult :>.



Here is a picture of the set open.  The device opens by a kiss-lock
mechanism, which is quick and convenient.  There are 5 items on the
inside (from left to right: small scissors, clippers, nail file,
cuticle pusher, and tweezers) held by some sort of elastic material.
I love how the orange pops out on the inside of the Provencal pattern!



Here is a picture of the small scissors.  I haven't used these yet,
but you could utilize them for cutting off hang nails, trimming nails,
or cuticles.



Please be careful with putting the components back into the set!  The
edge of the scissors cut a little bit into the fabric.



These are the clippers.



The clippers are open here.  As you can see, there is not a separate
nail file on the inside.



The nail file...my favorite part of the set!  I use the tapered edge
to get dirt out of my fingernails.



This is the cuticle pusher, which I think is a bit awkward to use.
However, it is there if you need it.



The tweezers are really nice!  Good quality and usage.



Kiss lock mechanism.



Yes, they are manufactured from stainless steel, how exciting!


Overall, I have really been enjoying this set.  If things like some
tears in the fabric may bother you due to the metallic pieces ripping
the fabric a bit, you may want to mull this over.  However, for me, it
is worth it in the end to have a convenient little kit that can easily
be stored inside a purse.

Thanks for reading!  What do you think of the kit?

  1. I just got one of these and have been worried about the inside fabric getting damaged from use of the tools. However, the thing is so cute and convenient I couldn't resist! I'm just going to try to be very VERY careful.

  2. I love mine! I'm careful when I remove the tools. I saw hurting the fabric a potential problem when I got it. The scissors are perfect for trimming off the strings on a new Vera. Haha.

  4. I think I might Mod Podge the inside so it protects the inside fabric! Thanks for the tip about the tools cutting the fabric!
