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.
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.
