Each kit contains 28 Nail Dress strips in 14 sizes which means there is something for everyone - well practically everyone. As for myself, my nails are so small that I find kits like this an exercise in frustration - I have to cut the stickers down so much to fit that they never end up looking right so as usual, I sent them to my American twin, Elvira from Pink Sith and let her put them through their paces.
I'm beginning to wonder why though, out of the last 4 different types of nail stickers that I have sent her, she has only been successful with one of them and don't they say that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result, the only thing I'm not sure of is who the crazy one in this scenario is, me or her (and for that matter, who "they" actually is?)... While I ponder that, here's Elvira!
OK. Moving on.
When referring to the Kiss Nail Dress Website FAQ (http://kissnaildress.com/#) one questions was: “How Long Do They Last?” The answer provided was: “It lasts up to 10 days, depending on your lifestyle.”
It had me thinking what sort of lifestyle would allow for these nail stickers to last for up to 10 days without them peeling, lifting, cracking, etc. I have come to the conclusion that the lifestyle is one of a person that:
a) Never touches water
b) Never types
c) Never does anything.
So basically a 500 pound (or 226 Kilos) person that does nothing but sit on their couch, eat and watch TV. Kinda like the mom from Gilbert Grape. She has people bring and prepare her food, she has a dialing wand because her overly fat sausage hands can’t use the buttons on the phone and she has nothing but time to make sure the Kiss Nail Dress Stickers are perfectly applied without a trace of creasing, folding or lifting. Yup. That must be the person that lasts 10 days in these things.
I, on the other hand, do wash my hands regularly, have a 5 y.o. that I have to give a bath to every night, I type, a lot. I pretty much don’t do anything, but that’s beside the point. I do have to get off my fat butt to get my own cookies from the kitchen.
So can I recommend them? Not really. I mean, they look awesome, but they just don’t last all that well. At least they didn’t last all that well when I wore them. Your results may vary.
