Actress and Barbie star America Fererra was spotted on the star-studded Academy Awards red carpet wearing NEW KISS Salon X-tend Nails, complimenting her custom metallic pink Versace dress that took over 400 hours to make, the E! News hosts said on the red carpet preshow, styled by Karla Welch. This was the first time during awards season that Ferrera chose to wear the official color for Barbie, saving pink for last! America Ferrera is nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress in Barbie at this year’s ceremony. 

Celebrity Manicurist, Diem Truong, opted for a light pink nail look on America using KISS’ NEW Salon X-tend LED Soft Gel System ($22.99) and selected the style Gloria ($9.99). This breakthrough innovation achieves a salon quality soft gel nail extension look that comes in a variety of lengths, shapes, and finishes that stays perfect for up to 14 days. The nails are pre-sculpted, pre-polished, and ready to apply with an exclusive LED Gel Adhesive that provides a bubble-free, flawless finish.

“Since the accessories, jewelry, shoes and outfit were all pink, America and her stylist really wanted to keep the manicure very neutral to allow the metallic pink Versace gown shine!” – Celebrity Manicurist, Diem Truong

How to get America Ferrera’s look:

  • Diem chose style “Gloria,” a solid light pink nail tip in medium length & almond shape, to play off Ferrera’s first time wearing pink this award show season, paying homage to Barbie. 
  • Diem first prepped the nails using the manicure stick and file, included in the Salon X-tend LED Soft Gel System Starter Kit, then cleaned, filed, and buffed the nails. She then wiped the nails clean with the included prep pad.
  • She pre-selected America’s nail sizes to ensure a proper fit then applied the gel adhesive inside the numbered circle of each nail ensuring the perfect amount of adhesive for optimal results.
  • The nails were then flash cured under the LED light for 5-7 seconds, she removed any excess gel adhesive, and finish cured for 1-2 minutes.

KISS Salon X-tend Nails are available at KISSusa.com, Walmart, Target, Ulta, and CVS.
