Kiss Nail Dress - Comic Nail Strips

Hello lovelies!

Today I have a mani featuring some nail strips that I found while I was out shopping a couple of weeks ago...

 
A new trend that I'm seeing with this particular brand is that they're offering both full nail and french tip strips in the packaging.  I think it's a cool concept :)
 

Application of these strips is very simple.  You don't need a base coat (although I always use one), just make sure your nails are clean.  Match the right sized strip to you your nail and then peel it from the plastic sheeting and apply.  I recommend using a cuticle stick/pusher to press down the edges.  Fold the strip down and file away the excess.  That is the end of Kiss's instructions, but I always add top coat at the end to secure my free edges ;)  This time around I used a my favorite matte top coat from Mentality Nail Polish.

Kapow!!


I love nail strips because they make it easy to do a fun mani when you're short on time (which is happening to me more and more as of late haha).  These strips are supposed to last a week but I only had them on for a couple of days.  Looking for strips with more staying power?  Stay tuned in ;)

Until next time!

  1. I always pass by the nail art strips when I'm out and about and then I see awesome swatches like yours and I wish I would give them a try!! I work 2 days a week in our video game store so these would be ideal for me to wear while I'm there since they're quick and easy!! Love the comic book look to them too!!!

  5. If you are looking for nail strips with staying power drug store brands are not it! Try Jamberry Nail Wraps! They last so long and there are so many cool designs. I love this super hero print though! https://nailguru.jamberrynails.net
