As promised, here is my review of the Kiss Nail Dress strips included in my Influenster Holiday VoxBox. I wanted to love these, but sadly that was not the case.
I love the variety of designs offered, but the jeweled designs are harder to apply b/c the placement of the jewels may interfere with a smooth application. To apply, you smooth the strip onto your nail and take the excess length, fold it at the tip of your nail and file the excess off using an emery board that is included with the kit. On several of my nails, the placement of the jewels were right at the tip of my nails so I had to pull the jewel off. Also, the process of filing the tips can leave the edges a little rough, which makes the strips peel off faster. Overall the strips were fast and easy to apply, but some of my fingernails have a weird shape (wide, slightly rounded) so a couple of the strips began to wrinkle at the corners of my nail. Within 24hrs, the strips started peeling off of about 3 of my nails. Because I really wanted to wear the strips for New Year's Eve (they were super cute, went well with my outfit, and I didn't feel like painting my nails) I fought the urge to just pull them off and used a little bit of eyelash glue under the peeling areas to keep them intact for the night.
So, in summary:
- Great variety
- Pretty designs
- Quick and easy application
- Hard to get nail tips smooth
- Peeling within 24 hrs
- May have difficulty finding the appropriate sized strips
