REVIEW -- Kiss Nail Dress Stickers


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 PRODUCT
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:

Kiss Nail Dress

Fashion That Sticks
Introducing Kiss Nail Dress, ultimate nail fashion for tips and toes! Just peel, apply, and shape for a manicure that lasts up to 10 days. On in minutes, off in seconds without remover. Nail Dress is available in 18 different styles, many of them featuring 3-dimensional jeweled designs. Check out Peplum, a deep black with multi-colored gems for a pop of color, or Babydoll, for a golden and glamorous jeweled look. Skip the topcoat, Nail Dress has it built in.

With 28 strips in each package, you can cut up your extras to create designs that can be used on top of polished or artificial nails. Nail Dress doesn’t dry out the way other polish strips can, so you can save them to use on your next DIY mani. A nail design booklet is included in each package, just in case you need a little inspiration.

And don’t forget about your feet! Nail Dress looks awesome on toes, too – just use the square side of the sticker for a perfect fit.

Where to Buy
Nail Dress’ suggested retail is $6.99 and is available in all major drug chains and mass retailers like WalMart, CVS and Walgreens.

MY RESULTS
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:

oooOOOooo... Preeeeettttyyyyy!!!!

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

  4. I use these on my toes.  They last a long time.  I'm going on my 3rd week.  A great find at only $7. Much cheaper than going and getting a pedi or a manicure.

  6. I love these!! At least the first ones I tried. Today I used the jeweled ones and I'm really not happy with them. I cannot get the edges smooth because of those jewels!!!! Don't know how long I'm going to be able to wear them because I know I'm gonna be snagging everything I come in contact with!!! Really cute......pink with silver jewels......was thinking valentines day when I bought them. I'll be 'sticking' with the smooth ones from now on!!!
