May NAS Kit and A Give-Away!

Good morning my darling readers!  I hope this early Tuesday morning is finding you well.  I'm up early because hubby is on the early shift starting today.  Sometimes working swing shift work completely sucks, but he's been doing it nearly 23 years now.  Day shift just happens to be the shift we least like since we're both more night owls than early risers.  He works in a glass factory that makes drinking glasses, bake wear, and the like.  The machine he runs usually produces mixing bowls, baking dishes, lids, and things like that.  Our youngest child also now also works there and just became a journeyman machine operator last year after completing his 4 year apprentice program.  We're very proud of him for his accomplishment as in this day and age, most people are lucky to have a job let alone one that pays fairly well and offers benefits.  I count ourselves very blessed at the moment and we keep our fingers crossed both will stay gainfully employed for some time to come.  And now onto what y'all are here for, nail stuff!  :0)

Most everyone who is a member of Nail Art Society has received their May kits and posted and ooohh and ahh'ed about them, well, except me (there may be a few others as well and I'm sorry for your delay too and hope you got the same fabulous customer service I've received!).  I got a tracking number and waited.  Tracked the package, but it had no activity.  A few days later, I was e-mailed a different tracking number, so I figured the first one either hadn't gone out or something happened to it, so I started tracking the second package.  Out from California it went and I thought eastward it would come.  The next destination it hit was Seattle Washington.  I thought, okay, it's taking the scenic route.  By the time it was all said and done, it was delivered to an address in Juneau Alaska.  That's a long way from the southeastern part of central Ohio, right?  So over Memorial Day week-end, I e-mailed customer service and CC'd Tia (the owner of NAS) to let them know about the mix-up (I'd either been e-mailed a wrong DC number or the package mailed to the wrong location) and I got a response from Tia herself, which I really didn't expect.

To make a long story short, Tia apologized for the error and said because of the inconvenience that she would send me 2 kits.  The level of customer service I received, well, I can't say enough about it because Tia went above and beyond anything I expected.  I thought maybe I might get a nice, form e-mail to say thank you for letting us know of  the error and we'll get your kit to you as soon as we can and that would be the end of it.  I never expected a 2nd kit, nor it to be mailed to me via priority mail.  Because of her generosity, I have decided to spread the love and share the 2nd kit with one of y'all!  If you haven't seen what is included in this kit yet, prepare yourself, I think it is the best one they've put together yet!

More after the jump.

Here is what is included in the kit:

May's theme was KISS & Tell featuring KISS products.

From the left:  Nail Artist flat stickers, Nail Artist Paint & Stencil Kit, Nail Artist 3D Charms, Marbling Paint & Polish, and 2 Nail Dress Kits in Corset and Teddy.


A look at the stencils included in the Paint & Stencil Kit.


And now, without further ado, let's give-away this 2nd set I have!  The give-away is now active and ends on 06-16.  Good luck to everyone who enters!

    1. I'm having a hard time myself deciding which I like too. I love the colors in the marbling kit but love the charms and can't wait to try the decals. Think it would be tacky to use them all at the same time? lol

  2. For me it would be the Nail Dress kits.:-)

    1. Which of the two do you like better, Natalie? I prefer Teddy myself. The neon ones, for me, would be just a little too much, for all at the same time on my fingernails, but they would probably be okay on all my toenails at the same time since I only have 8 of those. :)

    2. Yes.I agree.I don't even like Neon nail polish.

    3. I ended up using a couple from the neon set on my finger nails and surprised myself, I actually liked it! :D What was more surprising to me is my hubby liked the lime green one. lol

  4. If this was open internationally I would have said those wraps with the spots and the marble kit! It sounds like you had some excellent customerservice.

    1. The customer service that Tia provides at Nail Art Society is unbelievable! I'm not sure what size company it is, but as an owner of the company, she seems to still be an active part of the customer service team and reached out to me personally to make sure I was happy with the resolution to the problems I had.

      I'm sorry I wasn't able to open this give-away internationally but keep your eyes open as I promise, I will have one soon that you can participate in. :0)

    1. lol Rachel, I suppose I can untie your arms now, as long as you behave yourself. ;<) I plan to try out the stencils later today and will let you know what I think of them. I'm not sure if they can be reused or not, but it would be sweet if they can.

    1. Thank you for entering. I found the marbling kit a little difficult to work with myself, but it was all user error, I'm sure. :)

  13. I am so excited about the nail dress kits--I'm just learning nail art, and it keeps me inspired to try new designs to get to wear them on my nails for a while!

  14. What a cool giveaway! (hooray for good customer service!) I am just getting into nail art and love the idea of stencils!

    1. As a former customer service rep, when I am provided excellent service, as I was in this situation, I make sure I spread the word because customer service is often under appreciated these days. This whole kit is a great way to break into nail art. :0)

  15. Nail Artist Paint & Stencil Kit is too cute!

  16. How funny! I had a similar issue with my may kit as well. I never received my kit and when I emailed I got a response back from Tia herself. She ended up sending me 2 kits too! I was very impressed with the service and couldn't be happier.

    1. Tia is awesome! I have a feeling that has something to do with why they are changing their billing system now. She may have grown more quickly than she was prepared to or thought she would. I can't wait to see what is in store for future kits.

    1. I do too Teresa. I'm actually loving the whole kit, although I've only played around with the marbling kit, the stencil kit, and one of the dresbykits, so far. I'll be posting my thoughts and results with those in the next day or two if you want to know what my impressions of those are, please stop on by.

  23. Hi Angela,

    I know this giveaway is over. I just have a question regarding the nail stencil stickers. Where are they from and where can I buy some?

    Thanks,
    Diana

    1. Hi Diana,

      Thanks for asking about the nail stencils. They actually came out of the Kiss Nail Artist Paint & Stencil set. As far as I know, they can't be purchased separately, but I'm not 100% sure on that. I haven't seen them sold by them self or on their website that way. I can check further into it if you would like.

      I have seen other nail stencil sets sold by a couple of online nail supply sites, but I can't recall which ones right off the top of my head. I'll do a bit of research to see if I can find them again and get back with you on this in the next day or two. :)

      Thank you for stopping by!
