@Influenster sent me #kissdressnails


Influensters Love VoxBox had an awesome mix of products for me to try, some being new to me and some I have already been a fan of. Kiss Nail Products was one I was immediately excited to try because I love doing my nails and they looked WAY better than the press on nails they sent me to try last month. I wouldn’t even put those things on. They even sent me a design that was really patterned–cheetah–but called “sexy”.


Kiss Dress, or Kiss’s version of sticker nail appliqués claim to last up to 10 days and come in a variety of colors and patterns to match your every mood. I’ve tried nail polish stickers before and have had mixed results depending on the brands, I was hoping this one would work very well because the strips looked thin and would adhere well. I should have known when it said “peel off slowly” to remove. Sigh. DID NOT LIKE THESE AS ALL.


You know why you need to peel these off? Because its not polish. Its a strip of plastic with sticky stuff on one side, literally making it a plastic sticker for your nails that you have to file to the shape of your nail. The only problem with these plastic strips is that they are WAY thicker than actual nail polish strips and don’t file off well. They also don’t bond to the nail so the “sticker” lifts eventually when you run your hands through your hair. That is the exact reason I didn’t want to put on the press on nails. I didn’t want the sticky stuff to snag on my hair and get caught.


The kiss nail strips lasted a whole ……………. 2 hours? Sad. Im guessing my nails just aren’t the right shape for these stickers. My nails are in good condition. They aren’t peeling or uneven, but they do have a high arc, meaning the nail bed is not flat across which may not let the sticker lie flat across the nail bed. Maybe its just too curved. Thats the only thing I can think off because i clean my nails beforehand with zoya prep nail polish remover and didn’t even wash my hands once after before the stickers started lifting. I tried to show you in the pictures just how bumpy it looked even after pressing and smoothing out forever.

not sure if you can see but they didnt lay flat at all

I know you can see it in this one though! see? bumpy. wavy. blah!

In my opinion it doesn’t matter how much these cost because they wouldn’t have lasted through a dinner if I had gone out that night. Aside from that, I did like the pattern. They were easy to apply, just not easy to file and stay on.

I’m going to link you guys to Patricia’s Blog, A Diva’s Perogative, because she tends to have better luck with these nail products than I have.

I use some other kiss nail products like their nail art kits or nail decals and think I’ll stick to just those for now.

@Influenster Sent Me @Stashtea #lovevoxbox

As part of Influester’s March Love VoxBox, I got a sampler of Herbal Teas from the brand Stash; a brand I am already familiar with! Stash sells a huge variety of teas along with teaware and other gifts. I actually had no idea they did all of that, but after visiting their site I kinda want a catalog to look at now. Something about looking in a paper catalog brings me back to the days where I would flip through every kind we had sent to our home when I was a kid. It’s just fun!


About the company: Stash started out as a loose tea distributor to

natural food stores, and has developed into one of the most widely know tea companies today! Since starting the company up in 1972, the company has expanded into a specialty tea company servicing grocery stores, tea and coffee shops, natural foods, and mail/Internet orders while continuing to keep a 5000 year old tradition of tea drinking.



The product I received from Influenster’s (gratis in return for doing this review) was the Herbal Tea sampler which included two packets of nine different favors:

Acai Berry, Blueberry Superfruit, Chamomile, Cinnamon Apple Chamomile, Lemon Ginger, Licorice Spice, Mango Passionfruit, Peppermint, and Wild Raspberry Hibiscus.

I wanted to try a flavor that was new to me so on the first night I decided to go with Licorice Spice:described as a naturally sweet dessert-like flavor of licorice root, cinnamon, Chinese star anise and clove bud oil. I know what anise and licorice taste like in other things and figured this would be a good combo flavor to try. Well, I was wrong. I actually did not finish the cup, I just didn’t like it. My boyfriend however tried the cinnamon apple chamomile and said it tasted really good, so I dumped mine and made a new cup.

Cinnamon Apple Chamomile almost tastes like a piece of pie and is described as : spicy cinnamon with juicy apple (yum yum) — now who isn’t going to love that! I’d happily have one of these after dinner instead of a fattening dessert that I’ll regret later.

I also drank the chamomile while I was at work and thought it tasted good– except I couldn’t say more than that? Not a really memorable flavor as Blueberry Superfruit which almost has a tart flavor to it. Blueberries are kind of an expensive snack for me to get at the grocery store all the time so it was nice to get all of its antioxidant goodies in a wake drink this time around. the website suggests trying this iced and I think it

would taste awesome that way too. it’s definitely a “fruity” flavor and doesn’t even need sugar ( I normally add 1 packet of truvia or sugar substitute to my tea and two to coffee.

I’m currently drinking Lemon Ginger while I write this review and taking it to the extreme. It’s 5pm and I have my lounging pants on, my dog is sleeping right next to me on the couch and no noise in the house. Do I have kids? No, but I do have a boyfriend that lives with the tv on for “background noise” and plays records in our dining room like its his own mixing. Studio. Sigh. So quiet 🙂

Taking another sip of Lemon Ginger, I can say that it smells lemon-y but tastes like ginger first and then the lemon taste comes at the end—-if that makes any sense at all! I would definitely drink it again if it was in another sampler pack, but probably not a whole box on its own. I honestly always go with a mint tea or even better, a mint green tea when I get a box of just one flavor. Mint may be simple, but it’s always the best in my eyes.

I also tried mango Passionfruit at work and really hoped I would like it because I like passion fruit, but I did t get past one or two sips before it was dumped. The mango flavor was too much for me and isn’t a favorite fruit of mine. I just hoped the passion fruit was cover everything, but oh we’ll, left in the cupboard for the coworkers! I only have 3 other favors to go: Acai berry, peppermint, and just discovering that both wild Rasberry hibiscus were gone! Hhhhmmmmmmmm…. Someone drank those without me noticing until just now. Haha must have been good to drink both. There are only two of us at this house. I think I know who the culprit is.

Overall, I love the brand. its sold at my supermarket and perhaps some other places I shop but don’t notice yet. I have yet to determine the price for this sampler but I suspect it’s around $6-7 which is fair.

Do you guys have a tea brand you like to use? Or go to a coffee or tea shop around you? what’s your flavor? share in the comments below!
