Most Helpful Positive Review I actually can't believe it.
I've never used any kinds of nail stickers before. I bought these for a vacation I hope to take and wanted to see how durable and long they would last. I only tested two strips. Took nail polish off of two nails and then placed the stickers. I didn't really follow the proper application steps so for them to still be on 10 days later... I'm impressed (photo below is at 10 days). I'm very hard on my nails, and often break them if I don't keep some sort of nail polish on them. Happy to report, I did not have any lifting near the cuticle (where my hair usually catches and lifts other polish and gels when washing or styling). As I mentioned, my nails are brittle, so they do break and peel. The only time I've experienced lifting with the product is when a piece of my nail breaks and peels away. And when that happens, I've been able to remove the nail, and stick the sticker back to where it peeled up from. With no problems. Honestly amazed. Only "complaint" I have is that if you run your nails along each other, the stickers do kind of grab each other rather than smoothly slide across (note: I did not use a top coat). I do wish there were more sizes of the accent nails. When selecting sizing, I do need to remember to pick one size bigger than I think will fit as I think my nails have more of a curve to them. Placement was kind of hard for me to get straight, but it was easy enough to lift back up and then place more in line, and it didn't seem to compromise the integrity of it. Overall, very pleased with these. Will definitely buy more!
Most Helpful Critical Review Yes & no
I am used to the application of the Incoco/Colorstreet nail strips, so this didn't intimidate me much. It's the same deal, shape your nails, push your cuticles back and definitely use an alcohol prep pad on your nails prior to applying the strip.
My biggest gripe about this brand is that they are definitely thick strips, so it's not easy to just "perforate" the remainder and then file down. I actually had to use scissors to cut the remaining strip and then file with force to get them shaped to my nail. Perhaps it's a good thing that they are so thick, but it seemed like it tripled my application time compared to the other brand of nail polish strips.
While it's awesome that they provide three other designs for accent nails, I do wish that they would at least make them a tad bigger or two of the same size. I applied the accent nails to my pointer fingers and the strips all vary in size, so they don't fit correctly.
When applying these, if you don't get an accurate fit and they hang off the side of your nail, the strip will just peel up. With the Incoco brand, you can actually take a wooden cuticle pusher and perforate the sides for a better, custom fit.
I have only had them on for 48 hours and the top corners have started to peel up, so I just try to smooth them down. Maybe over time these will improve.

This was my first time using gel strips, so I can't compare these to others, but I am so impressed. I have had them on for 15 days! A regular gel manicure doesn't even look good for a week for me usually. I am not gentle on my nails- I have two young kids, and I'm a hairstylist. There were so many times I thought I had probably messed them up, but nope! I have gotten SO many compliments. I was going to be happy if they lasted a few days, to be honest, so these far exceeded my expectations!
Completely Exceeded My Expectations
SunnyD from undisclosed
This is my first time trying Dashing Diva nail strips. All I can say as I write this on week 3 of having applied my nails, is WOW. They are gorgeous. They are fun. AND, they are still stuck on my nails. No chips. No falling off. I also farm.....so I'll leave it at that. So happy I tried these. Needed some bling in my life.

I love, love, love these nail decals. They last over 2 weeks and I don't "baby" my hands at all.
Love the Glitter
Jo N. from undisclosed
I love the glitter glamour rose blush and the accent wraps are especially nice. These wraps typically last 2-3 weeks. Around the end of week two, I put on a fast drying, clear top coat to rejuvenate the wraps, because hand sanitizer takes a toll on the shine and smoothness. The clear top coat polish makes them look new again.
Better than expected
JAM from CO
I applied heat afterwards to get them to stick better. A blow dryer or any other source works great. So far 8 days and I've done years work and house cleaning with them on and they are still presentable for date night!
Used for my wedding
Manda from Illinois
Used these for my wedding since it was during covid. They are very thick and hard to just "file down the ends" but they looked beautiful on. Lots of compliments. I did put them on in a hurry, so I didnt get proper sizes for all of my nails. You couldn't notice. Would buy again since I now know how to apply them.

It's just stickers, not polish
violet from CA
I am brand new to using polish stickers so I didn't realize these are just nail stickers. There are two applications of the main glitter stickers. I thought the first one looked cute, mainly because it was my first set and I liked the accent nails. But the edges are really difficult to file cleanly, and they can loosen, so some edges wore off within two days. The sizes are also off, I was in between the larger and smaller choice often. On the second application I noticed I could only get two nails covered well on their sides, so up close most nails look pretty bad. I just gave two stars for the cute colors.
Not nail polish
Tammy from Orlando, Fl
I was looking for alternative to color street. These are not it. They are hard to use, and come off quickly even when you use alcohol to make sure no oil is on you hands. They are almost impossible to file off the end without tearing up your own nails.
Sarah l from Akron ohio
I applied these two weeks ago and they are still on doing just fine.
karretnen from Dallas TX
These were very difficult to work with. I had to use scissors to cut off the excess where other brands I've used easily came right off after creasing the edge and pulling or filing straight down. They were also not stretchy and would not smooth out over the nail bed. Lots of bumps/ridges. I doubt I'll buy this brand again.
Easy to apply, cute look, couple of negatives
Deborah M. from undisclosed
I received several compliments on these nails. They were easy to apply and I liked the overall look. I did get some rippling that was apparent in the light colored nails; I don't know if this was a user error or the product. I did get some damage to my natural nails so I will give my nails a "break" between applications.
Difficult to use
CW in LA from Los Angeles
The gel strips are pretty and last a long time...once you get them on. Problem is that it is very time consuming to cut and file excess. Filing it off is like trying to file vinyl. It took longer to put on than waiting for three coats of nail polish to dry. Also choice of sizes wasn't great for my nails.
Sarah from Temecula, CA
These are game changers for me and I'm literally stocking up on these! I have really weak and flimsy nails and I've tried regular polish (chips in 1 day), gel, and dip nails (can't handle filing my nails down). I love that I don't have to go to the nail salon and I can get nails that last nearly perfectly for 2-3 weeks. I always get compliments on my nails when I have these on. They're super easy to apply and really easy to take off with cuticle oil. This also helps keep my nails from breaking. I don't know how this magic works but it does!
Love the look!
Jess L. from undisclosed
So easy and long wear!
Tisha D. from undisclosed
Love the glittery colors! They last longer too and are easier to apply.
Jean S. from undisclosed
I have gotten multiple compliments on these! The thing I like best about these nails is that I receive enough nails to replace one if I mess one up. I really feel the red therapy helps.
Gsandoval85 from Bakersfield, CA
I love these nail strips! I have been using dashing diva strips about a year now. They last about 2 weeks. Some sets have even lasted 3 weeks! Only downfall is that I have large nail beds, so the accent nail strips don't fit my index and ring finger, it's one or the other. So I usually do one accent strip on my pinky and the largest accent one on my index fingers. The one on my index finger is a tad bit too small, but nothing really noticeable other than by me. Overall I love these strips and will continue to use them because it's way cheaper than going to the salon.
Delivery is very fast.
Wanda B. from undisclosed
I love the set! Just wish there were two more of the largest size on all the collections.
Never buying again
Belaneeee from Seguin
Applied them didn't even last a whole day with them. I've used so many brands and this one has been the worst.
Chelsea B. from undisclosed
They are great. They have been on my nails for two weeks and still going strong.
Maz S. from undisclosed
Very pretty, you can combine to go simple or really wow with the designs. Love it
I love this!

It's a nice easy way to do your nail without having to go to a nail salon. I order more!
Love!! So easy and beautiful!
Kerrie R. from undisclosed
They were so easy to put on and they look beautiful! I took one star away because I don't even have Large nails, although I had to use the biggest sizes. I feel that they run a little small.
