Hey everyone! Today I'm excited to share my first Love VoxBox review with you! I received the Kiss Nail Dress Stickers in KDS11. They're kind of an abstract metallic silver and black giraffe-ish type print.
The nail stickers come in a sleek package that contains 28 stickers in various sizes that can be used on either fingers or toes, directions and nail art ideas (cutting the strips into pieces and combining with their ImPress stick on nails), and a 2-sided nail file. They are also supposed to last up to 10 days.
Here's the product information from Kiss:
The stickers are plastic and smell like a pool float when you first open the packaging, but the smell fades quickly. If you've ever used Sally Hansen Salon Effects Strips, these are exponentially thicker (again, because they're plastic).. but that actually comes in handy if you need to re-position them. The Kiss Nail Dress stickers peel up very easily, and I was able to move them around 3 or 4 times with no trouble to get a perfect placement.
The strips were quite a bit longer than my nails, so I trimmed most of the excess back with nail clippers and then used the nail file included to file the rest off. Unfortunately, the file they give you is very coarse and I was hesitant to use it on my natural nails. However, it is necessary to use since the stickers are so thick. I tried a couple of other files and they couldn't wear through the plastic.
I know the product info says that you don't need to add top coat, but I decided to go ahead and use it (especially along the free edges of my nails) to give these the best possible chance of holding up well. I'm about 24 hours in and so far so good! I probably won't leave them on for the full 10 days, though.
Finally, enough talking! Let's see what they look like in action:
FINAL VERDICT & RATING
I really like these! I've tried the ones with the 3D baubles and I didn't like those at all, but I would definitely be willing to try another pair (or two!) of the regular ones. They're easy to apply and definitely a great value.. 28 strips for $7? Uhh... #WINNING! They would be great for people who want unique and interesting nails but don't have the time or confidence to do nail art.. I would definitely use them for a girls' night out or something! I only wish I didn't have to use such a harsh nail file to get the excess product off, but other than that I have no complaints! Thus, I'm very pleased to give the Kiss Nail Dress Stickers 4.5 out of 5 stars!
RATING: 4.5 out of 5 STARS
