Gold Jeweled Nail Dress Strips by Kiss

Awesome! I tried out Kiss Nail Dress Jeweled Strips and loved them. I bought them at Walgreens for around $7. The strips were large and wide enough for my nail beds and I could trim them down to size when needed. They are really easy to apply. You basically place the strip onto your fingernail like it's a sticker. Then, it hangs off your nail about another half inch. The directions say to then push the excess down over the side of the nail and file the rest of the material off.  Rather than just filing it down as instructed, I took a scissor and cut the excess strip down close to the end of my nail. Then, I filed the last pieces of it. I also put a layer of clear nail polish over top to help secure it.  The jewels feel bumpy because they are 3D and it almost looks like I applied each little gem individually. But it's all on one sheet of sticker, so it's super easy to do.

 I've been wearing them for about 2 weeks and they are just now starting to peel off. I can't tell you how many compliments I've received. Everyone has been going nuts over these nails and I have to say it feels nice to look down and see these because they are so neat and cute.

I had previously tried Sally Hanson Nail Effects and really had no success. They didn't fit my fingernails (they were way too small and didn't have enough material.) They didn't make a clean edge either. It looked messy and terrible and I took them off immediately. I will be using Kiss Nail Strips from now on instead!  I can't wait to try more designs. (Sorry the photos are such poor quality- I didn't know I'd be using them for my nail blog!)
