Review - Kiss Nail Dress nail stickers

Recently when i went to priceline to stock up on a few beauty basics i spoted these new press on nail stickers. I love nail art and use to get my nails done every month, but it was just way too expensive for me to maintain.

I love the sally hanson nail stickers as an alternative to professional nail art they are super easy to use and last up to 2 weeks, but the only problem is the lack of designs and all the designs are 2D.

The Kiss nail stickers have two types of stickers 2D ones like the sally Hanson ones (some are exactly the same!) and a diamante range, which i was very keen to try.


The instructtions are pretty much the same as the sally hanson ones where you press the sticker onto your nail and file off the excess. However these are actually stickers! the sally hanson ones you can stretch out to fit your nail perfetly, while the kiss ones don't stretch so you really have to pick the stickers that are the perfect size or slightly smaller, i would avoid picking stickers that are slightly bigger then your nail surface as they are not alteration friendly!

Overall they are fairly easy to apply, but again because they are a solid sticker and have no give, the more curved your nails the more you will get puckering at the tips. It actually reminds me of contacting school books when I was in primary school.

The packet states that the stickers will last up to 10days but are easily removed by peeling them off. I thought this was rather contradictory, long lasting but easy to remove.... hmm i think not

They do stay on fairly well for a few days about 3-4 but after that you will start to notice that the ends will lift  especially if you have puckering. but they will still stay on for a few more days. Depending on how much your hands come into contact with water, the stickers will last for around 7 days max. They do tend to get caught on clothes, hair and pretty much anything once they have started to lift

One thing which i absolutly hate about them is the taste! i know that sounds super wierd, you probably all thinking, umm i  don't think you were meant to eat them!but when you eat something with your hands, flossing your teeth and what not they put this horrid toxic taste in your mouth which is really hard to get rid of.

also something to note, you can't extend the life of the nails by applying a top coat, the nail polish actually eats away at the sticker. Not very attractive, think potato chip packet in the oven look.

Overall pretty much the only thing that i do love about these is their designs, i don't think there suitable for wear everyday. they are more suited for a one off wear for some event.

I much prefer the Sally Hanson nail stickers, there isnt much difference in price, with Sally Hanson at $17.95 and Kiss nail stickers at $13.95. I would much rather fork out the extra $$$ to get the better product.
