Review of Kiss Nail Dress!

I got my Kiss Nail Dress on tonight! I received this set in my complimentary Influenster Love VoxBox for February, and I was really excited about giving them a try.

I have never used anything like this on my nails before, so I couldn't wait to try them out. The pattern on this particular set is very detailed. The base colors are white, pink, purple and black with animal print. In addition, there is an awesome silver detail added on top which is 'raised' and creates an amazing impressive 3D effect. It has a foil type look to it. It's not just a flat look. This extra detail really makes these pop!

I was not sure I would enjoy something like this and the verdict is...I LOVE THEM!!

They were very simple to apply, even easier than I first assumed they would. I got lucky and found perfect fits for 8 of my nails, so I only had to cut down 2. This process of cutting down the existing decals to fit your nails was so much easier than I originally thought it would be. I have avoided these types of products in the past for fear they would be difficult to apply, and I was so very wrong!

(as you can see above there was a small area of the decal on my ring finger that was too long, but as you can see in the picture below - I easily fixed it with a quick trim).

I really love how they came out. 

They took a total of 15 minutes to apply. There was some trial and error involved in the application, but once I got the hang of it everything went smoothly. 

The only things you have to be cautious of is in the filing process. When you file off the excess on the free edge of your nail you have to be delicate. If you are too rough in the process you can damage the decal (which will give you the illusion of tip wear). Also, you have to be cautious not to apply too much pressure while filing, so you do not file down your existing nail unintentionally.  So with a little bit of caution this can all be avoided. 

I also suggest when applying these type of items, that you use a nail prep on your nail first to remove excess oils. This will help the bonding process of the decal to stick better to the nail. 

I just loved that I can do a manicure in 15 minutes and be ready to go with no drying time. Fast and fun! I will definitely be picking up a few more of these sets. They would be perfect for nights when you don't have time for drying or for easy traveling. 

At the end of this month I need to travel for a week for my nieces graduation, and these would be so perfect! I now don't have to pack liquids and tons of nail supplies for my nails to look nice during my trip. This is the perfect solution! The drive is 4 hours and I'm not the driver. As a passenger, I could do these on the drive down. How cool is that! Imagine having a flight somewhere and doing your nails during the flight. Something that is now impossible to do with fumes and smells.

I'm also traveling again in June for a week to my Lake house, and I will be bringing these along as well. Last year I had to pack a small suitcase of just nail supplies and this year I can save myself the trouble and extra packing.  A few sets of these are coming along with me :)

I can not say enough good things about these. Once I purchase more and use them I will be sure to share them with you hear.

Thanks for visiting!
