Kiss Nail Dress Cocktail
What’s my favorite product from the Influenster Love VoxBox 2012? It’s a tie between the Ghirardelli Gourmet Milk Creamy Devotion Bar and the Kiss Nail Dress in Cocktail. Y’all know I love food, so that chocolate bar was a given. I’m all for trying new beauty products and the print I got is just too cute. So how did the Nail Dress fare?
The Influenster insert boasts about this product: “Introducing Kiss Nail Dress, the ultimate nail fashion for tips and toes! Just peel, apply, and shape for a manicure that lasts up to 10 days. Available in 18 different styles!”
Verdict? I absolutely love this product! The box opens to reveal 28 jeweled strips that are super easy to use. Complete instructions are available at the back of the box. It applies literally in minutes. You first figure out the correct nail pieces to use, swipe nail beds clean with alcohol or polish remover to remove any oils or residue, firmly apply the pieces after removing from the sheet, and fold down over the edge and file to remove excess. One thing I did differently is to utilize a nail clipper to actually clip off most of the excess. It made application so much faster and easier for me. When using on fingers, align the rounded side of the strip to the cuticle and the square side if you’re applying these on the toes. I haven’t removed them yet, but the instructions indicate that you have to just slowly peel it off to remove.
The print I got is called Cocktail. It’s a pink zebra print with silver rhinestones outlining the print. General feedback from these vary. The girls, Supa Roopa and Renuky loved it. They thought it was very cute and girly. They were also impressed that it was so easy to apply. Pobe and Toby both noted that these made them think of Braille when they felt it on my fingers. The finish is bumpy due to the rhinestones. It’s not really a rough bumpy like with glitter shades, but rather a bumpiness that’s not coarse at all. Vu noted though that while it looks nice it can make some guys think that the user is a bit high maintenance, which makes a lot of sense. They would’ve thought that they’d have gotten it specially done and that it took a lot of time and effort (and much pricier than a regular mani, no doubt!) to achieve that look. Looking at their offerings, I believe they do have non-textured prints available as well. There’s something for everybody with the variety they offer.
As long as you follow the instructions carefully, it works great and should last for up to 10 days. Each Kiss Nail Dress retails for $6.99 and is available at all major drugstores and mass retailers like Walmart, CVS and Walgreens.
