Review: Kiss Nail Dress Stickers

I received this Kiss Nail Dress Fashion That Sticks Nail sticker things in one of my monthly beauty boxes a while ago and have decided to give it a go, as I did not have any gelish on.

It claims to lasts up to 10 days and "on in minutes, off in seconds without remover". It came with 28 strips in 14 sizes, a design booklet (which I threw out) and a nail file.

Nail strips
To simply put it, this product is a dud. Here are my reasons why:
  1. There weren't enough nail strips that fit my nails! That means that I only had enough to do one hand or a few of my nails will not be properly covered.
  2. It did not last 10 days. I think it lasted about 2 days on my nails before they got ruined - the tips were lifting. I got really annoyed by the little gems because there were few that ended up on the very tip of my nails, and they would lift and break off.
  3. It was so awkward trying to fold the stickers down to file them off. As you can see in the picture below, I filed my nail right down, and so the stickers ended up sticking to my skin. It was just majorly awkward trying to file the stickers off and trying so desperately hard not to file off my skin as well.
  4. I think my nails were slightly damaged after peeling off the stickers, but not bad enough not to leave my nails bare. Although, I've heard worst stories where people actually had to paint their nails after because the nail stickers had completely ruined their nails.
  5. Not a big fan of the design. Dad even commented on the weirdness of my nails... I think the exact words were "What did you do to your nails?!" He wasn't impressed :P
Straight after application
I'm glad to have had the opportunity to try this out and form my own opinion but I would never re-purchase these stickers. I do have another kiss nail dress that has the same design, but in silver with white, pink, green, pink, blue and purple jems, but I'm not sure if I even want to try it... I don't know what to do with it! :(


  1. Thanks for this review :)
    It's a really honest and great Post.
    I love the Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Strips and have been looking for cheaper / different alternatives. I will definitely be staying away from these

    1. My pleasure! :)

      How did you find the Sally Hansen Salon Effects?

  2. I was so undecided about these! They were so hard - no awkward - to apply but I got a nice design..


    1. Those bloody gems on the thing killed it for me I think. They were just too hard to cut through.

  3. lol but i think its look cute xD

    visit my blog ^^

  4. These look so funky, it's a shame they were hard to use!

    1. Oh well, plenty of similar products on the market!

  5. I don't mind the design, although probably not for every day wear as they are kinda out there, maybe for a party (and not for 10 days haha)
    So sad they were crappy to use! I have a set of these but, eh, have never been bothered!

    1. You might find them easier to use than I did. I guess it depends on your nail length because if you're lucky enough, you'll get a clean cut without those stupid gems in the way.

  6. Oh no! I received this in a monthly box as well and haven't used mine yet.. thinking I might give mine away now since I'm not crazy about the design either.

  7. I still have mine..I'm iffy about my design too, but after reading your review, I might have to give them a miss! Thanks :)
