Typically I can’t get gel Polish, glue in nails, or this kind of gel sticker to stay in my nails longer than 2 days at most, but these have been on a whole week now! I have replaced 3, but I can still actively wear them. Love the design too!
Once again these gel strips have not let me down through frequent hand washing and just being on the go, they look great, are super cute and I will be buying more gel strips.
Totally in love with these. I've tried several different brands of regular nail strips, but most of them wear at the tips and/or look kind of dull and thin. I didn't realize "semi cured" strips were a thing, but now I'm hooked. I have a UV lamp from when I tried to do regular gel nails at home, so I gave these a shot.
What I love:
-Good texture/weight. They feel solid, which gives you the look and feel of regular gels
-Easy to work with. Unlike some strips, you can place and replace these a lot without losing any stickiness or compromising the strip
-Good shine for the solid colors (although I do use a clear gel UV top coat, just to get that extra gleam and also more protection for longer wear)
-No wearing at the tips (but again, I wrapped my tips with the gel UV top coat, so that might have helped).
I didn't follow the instructions correctly the first time, but they still lasted an entire week before I wanted to switch them up--they probably would have laster longer. Just put on a new set and followed others' advice of curing the strip before cutting it/filing it. This seemed to work well and also made the cutting/filing process easier because the excess just kind of cracks/flakes off and then you can file.
These absolutely pass for a gel manicure. I'm so glad to be done with press-ons and trying and failing at regular gel manis at home! These will be my go-to from now on!
I wasn't sure what to expect with this product, but they are really easy to apply (and remove) with some cute colors/designs, perfect glossy finish with no worries about messing up wet polish, and zero nail damage… this was my second round of buying these gel nail strips. they're pretty easy to apply, small learning curve, but I felt pretty comfortable with the process by the third diy mani (and I have never used any other nail color strip before, honestly haven’t painted my nails in 5 years or more). I’ll reiterate a few tips I came across that were helpful: 1) really pay attention to matching the size of the strip to each nail. My nail widths aren't completely symmetric. 2) Do not skip doing a light filing of your nail surfaces with the fine side of the emery board provided to get good adherence 3) Really press the top edge of the gel strip firmly next to the cuticle with the angled flat stick provided or one of your own, I have a rubber one that I prefer - I had to trim a few of the strips at the top to get a perfect fit. 4) Clip or cut the gel strips a little bit longer than your nail with nail clippers or scissors and then cure them before filing to get a smooth edge. I found they file nicely after 1.5 to 2 cycles of light curing. They hold up pretty well as long as you’re not doing anything crazy (my current set are a bit scratched up, though only a bit, after I spent two hours trimming a new pool cover with my nails frequently scraping against the concrete). I have long hair so usually by day 4-5 I notice my hair is catching on the cuticle edges of the strips when I try to pull my hair up in a ponytail from my nails growing out a little. The gel strips typically are still adhering well and look fine, but I usually remove them around the 1 week mark bc the hair catching thing drives me crazy. Plus I like trying out new designs. They really are easy to remove as shown in the video on the product website and there is no nail damage. Just a bit of gooey adhesive that comes off with acetone or rubbing alcohol.
Easy to apply!! Lasted for 2 weeks and still looked amazing, only removed them to try another color!!
This is literally the best thing ever invented!!!! I love it so much it works amazing and so quickly. Love how I’m able to do it right from home or anywhere I want. Perfect for on the go when you’re running late I love it so much I would highly highly recommend.
I really loved these nails! Out of the two I got, this one was my favorite! They're super easy to apply and so quick. I love the quality as well. It feels almost as good as salon nails just half the price and time! Would definitely recommend!
I love this product so much. They stay on for about 2 1/2 weeks. They allow my very soft nails to grow out long! The removal leaves little to no damage if you use the stick. The stick works like a spatula. (You use a spatula to flip a perfect pancake) The stick works so well as you gently force it between the product and your nail. No more acrylic nails for me. This product is fun to put on minus all the dust. Such fun patterns too. I can’t say enough.
I bought this as a present for myself. It was worth every penny. The items are as described, easy to use, and super pretty. I have had a bunch of compliments on my nails. I work in a manufacturing plant where i use rubber gloves all day or use some harsh chemicals and they seems to hold extremely well. Going on my second week with one set and I'm super impressed.
I got tired of the expense and time for nail dips in the salon. I am really impressed with this brand! These looked beautiful for nearly 3 weeks! I work as a nurse so I am constantly washing my hands or using antimicrobial foam. I also did a lot of gardening and cooking with these on. The only reason I changed them after a few weeks is because my nail was starting to grow out. I think the semicured nails are much thicker and last longer than other stick on nails. I paid less than $10 for the UV light. I did put on two coats of ridge filler before using these nails, as my nails were bumpy and rough. There are a lot of beautiful colors and patterns to choose from!
I have tried so many different brands of nail strips and these are by far my favorites. They go on easily, file down clean and smooth, and remove easily, as well. They are thick and the color doesn’t fade at all — they last for 10-14 days depending how fast your nails grow.
I decided to try these after a couple of years of having acrylics, which ruined my nails. I put them on 4 weeks ago and they are still going strong, with no lifting or peeling! Now my natural nails are growing because of the strength provided by these! I am a clean freak, so I have done dishes and cleaned everything in them, without gloves. I even cleaned a cookie sheet the other day with a Brillo pad and they still look good! I highly recommend!
Really nice colors and the quality was great. I usually get 2-3 weeks with Danni & Toni products. These did not disappoint.
Such a lovely, subtle color, with a splash of gold! It paired perfectly with an antique floral set I had laying around.
I love to use nail polish strips/stickers. They really don't last that long though, if you have to put your hands in water. These nail strips are awesome! And the $7 nail lamp works so well with these. I've had them on for almost a week now, and they still look really good - even after washing dishes! Everyone thinks I went to the salon to get gel nails! It's a lot quicker and much cheaper than the salon.
Very cute design. Gel turned very hard and lasted longer than gel from a salon. It took some work to get them off but I was also making sure not to damage my nails. Worth the effort given the longevity and the fair price. Highly recommend.
This is the 3rd Danni and Toni set I have done and I have been so impressed with all of them. The first two lasted a full 2 weeks. No chipping, no cracking. I’ve had the China blue set on for 2 days now and it is gorgeous.
I have been using semi cured nail strips from different companies for about 6 months now and none of them compare to these. I had problems with other chipping and cracking within days. Not Danni and Toni. The quality far superior to anything else I’ve used.
The only thing that’s not totally clear is which side of the nail strip is the cuticle side. Some of the designs make it obvious and others are not. There is nothing on the sheet that indicates which side goes towards a the cuticle. Maybe it doesn’t matter? I haven’t had a problem at all.
usually, I don't leave reviews on products but I had to do this. I LOVE THESE GEL NAIL STRIPS. they are perfect. I can't wait to receive the ones I just ordered.
i love my nails, i love these nail strips. these strips are genuine gel products. they're not like those cheap stickers you see out there. once I finished curing with the gel lamp, all the glossy effects came to light. so stunning. it took about five minutes for me to finish the application. I've saved over $100 just this month already by using these nail strips instead compare to the salon. and the finished result is as good if not better.
