Review: Dashing Diva Gloss Ultra Shine Gel Strips

A couple of weeks ago I received this free pack of Dashing Diva Gloss Ultra Shine Gel Strips. I don't normally wear nail polish because my fingernails grow in weird ways and have strange grooves in them. But I wanted to see how these would work so I let my nails grow out and tried these gel strips. 

I looked on the Dashing Diva Website and saw that these strips cost $9 a pack and they have an assortment of different colors and designs to choose from. 

The ones I have came with two strips of solid colors as well as accent nail colors. There's 34 strips in all included as well as a nail file. 

So you can see I did let my nails grow out a little bit. It says to wash your hands with soap and water and dry them. I did that. Then you find the right size stickers for your nails, peel them off and apply them to your nails and press down. Then you take the file, fold over any excess and file it off. 

This is my left hand. It was actually easy to apply them and file off the excess.

Even though my nails curve in strange ways and have weird grooves in them I was still able to apply these stickers to my nails. 

It says they can last for up to 14 days and they lasted me 9 days on most of my nails. I think that if I didn't have the weird bumps in my nails and they were flat like normal nails, these would have lasted longer. But 9 days is pretty good for having them last through doing dishes, cleaning, showering and normal everyday activities. 

I like the different accent nails that came with this kit too. The solid color is nice and so are the accents. The instructions say that you just have to take a drop of cuticle oil or nail polish remover to the sticker by your cuticle and peel it off but I didn't even need to do that, they just peeled off easily when I went to take them off after 9 days. 

I still have enough of them to apply them one more time so I probably will. I would buy these and think they lasted a good amount of time for the price you would pay for them. This is easier than painting them, waiting for them to dry and then having them chip after two days. I will definitely be getting more of these. 

Disclosure: I was sent a free pack of these gel strips but all thoughts and opinions are my own.
