2. Nail art stickers
Famous fashion designer Prabal Gurung once said, “Nails are the period at the end of the sentence. They complete the look.”
Same goes for Kim who believes the finishing touch of fashion are her nails.
Instead of opting for nail polish, Kim preferred to use breathable nail art stickers.
This way she can change her manicure to complement her makeup and outfit.
3.Da Vinci Bodyboard yoga
Kim’s third beauty secret is something that has yet to catch on here in Malaysia.
It is called Da Vinci Bodyboard yoga. Kim touts it as “a type of interval training which is famous around the world.”
The board has elastic bands attached to it for users to exercise and do their yoga moves.
