Visually pleasing books full of useful information

Palmistry as a form of divination was something i ignored for a long time, onychomancy on the other hand (pun intended) immediately interested me, for how seemingly mundane yet complex it seemed. Reading both books aided me in gaining a lot of insight in regards to nails and fingers, and how certain planetary energies affect them, as well as how a simple choice of nail shape or polish can change how you experience your surroundings. The explanations provided are perfect for beginners in this field and the way she ties all the information together is perfect and comprehensible. I specifically enjoyed the celebrity nail readings! These teachings have already proven themselves to be very useful and I’m excited to see the way they will evolve in the future. I would also like to express my gratitude for how kind and patient Kiki was in helping me download the purchase. And on a closing note, I’m now eager to learn about palmistry!

I purchased both books a couple of days ago and WOW. I wasn’t expecting them to start reasonating this early, it was shocking. Both books were incredible reads, and the chapters about nails as altars and the meaning of broken nails/damaged cuticles in particular were scarily accurate. Everything was spot on. I don’t paint my nails often so it was easy to track every manicure I ever gave myself through my IG stories, and the interpretations of the colors & decorations the books gave matched perfectly with the situations I found myself in and the states of mind I annotated in my diaries back then. I also noticed that the explanations that the author gave for damaged nails/cuticles perfectly matched the results of my tarot readings. The author’s writing style is very eloquent yet pleasant to read. She starts from the basics (going as far as explaining which part of the nail is called what, which was very helpful to me as english isn’t my first language) and goes on to build on that to make the reader understand more complex concepts, making her work accessible to people who are just starting out with their research on the subject, but still a stimulating read for people who already did their homework but want to get more in-depht infos. I also like how she still encourages the reader to use their intuition without only relying on her writings. I had to leave a review. Keep up the good work and thank you❤!!!!

Great for manicure enthusiasts

I won these pair of books on a giveaway contest and I loved every bit of it. There was an explanation of nail break episode with shocking accuracy. For some one like who is obsessed with nails and manicure, this book is a dream come true!💅🥰♥️

 by Lashanda

couldn’t believe the similarities in the natural nail shapes she described and the similarities in my own life. The wide nails (mine) are related to yang/fire energy and my tropical chart is allll fire🤯and her section on nail biting hit home for me too, and short nails in general. I feel like I do subconsciously bite them to curb anxiety and keep myself grounded. Unreal. Recommend!

Fantastic reads

These ebooks are great if you love to learn new things! All the information is gathered in a compact, but also entertaining way. I will go back to them if anything happens to my nails and also when it’s time for a new manicure! I especially enjoyed the celebrity nail readings.

 by Ash
Confidence and fun!

I’ve bought both books, and along with the nail break guide I have referenced them everyday since purchase. It has influenced my own manicures and given me insight on the women I come in contact with.

The books have made experimenting with my nails so much fun and given me the confidence to try designs I wouldn’t have before.

I especially like that Kiki encourages us to use our nails as a manifestation tool. Total life hack and something I live by. This has been some of the best money I have spent in a while. 10/10 would recommend.

 by CapucineF

After reading the first book, I jumped on the release of the second, and have been fascinated by the storytelling, the examples, the thrill of manicures paired with external and internal events. This was a great read! Thank you for your creation!

Excited for more!!!

I bought OITMW a few months ago after I started noticing interesting patterns in the way my natural nails would break and chip. I’m big on symbology and had been wanting to buy myself a copy of this guide so I happily succumbed to my longing! It’s such a fun and truly informative read and a great reference- I love pulling my copy out of it’s drawer to flip through when I’m struck by inspiration or a realization. I’m so looking forward to Explorations in Onychomancy, I love reading all the info that Kiki shares 🙂

 by Capucine F
Thank Godess for this book

Reading this book, even as a non-manicured person, gave me the opportunity to meet my fingers, create a connection with each one and each couple of fingers, to re-meet my hands (I’m a Reiki Master, those are my work allies ) and my nails, as powerful auxiliaries to understanding the world around me, how the world and I co-exist and converse unconsciously. I’m so excited for the second book!

 by Melissa

Personally, I believe that one of the most amazing gifts/talents a person can hold is to have the ability to tell a story or speak in a way that can capture the attention of a wide audience. Kiki has that gift and this book showcases her talent beautifully! I always always always refer to this book when determining my next manicure because it is such a great feeling to get your nails done with intention. I literally tell everyone I know about this book at some point because I appreciate that Kiki doesn’t just speak to speak, every word in this book has intention and the research has been DONE. Period.
