Most Helpful Positive Review Learning Curve, but worth it!
Due to Covid I haven't been able to go to the salon to get my nails done for some time, and now that places are opening I'm still a little iffy on going into a nail salon. I was thrilled to be gifted by Dashing Diva these Gloss Ultra shine gels in the color Moody Mauve free in exchange for my honest opinion.
I have tried "Nail Polish Strips" before and I do have to say that I love with Dashing Diva you're able to just peel the color right off of your nail instead of having to use nail polish remover.
Dashing Diva is also much thicker than any other brands that I've used before and I really like that. They're not flimsy and going to tear easily.
There's no drying time for these and there's no scent to be bothered by either which are all pluses for me.
Mauve is one of my favorite colors right now and this "moody Mauve" color is to die for. It's perfectly mauve and gorgeous! My nails look fantastic and they look as if they have just been hand painted by a professional with Gel nail polish (which is obviously the desired end look).
The only thing that I was a little disappointed in with the Dashing Diva was that you couldn't overlap them. They don't stick well to each other so if i had a 2nd color that I wanted to overlap, that would be an issue. Since I only have the Moody Mauve that isn't a huge issue with me right now but I do think it's a down side to this brand.
Other than that there's 0 smudging and no real snagging or getting them messed up which I love! They're very durable and if you mess up while placing them on a nail bed you can easily peel them up and replace them down again.
They last well even during showers and doing the dishes... However another down side to them is if you have thin nails that crack and break easily (like I do) once your nail breaks the Dashing Diva nails don't want to stick at all anymore, you have to be able to file them right away when it happens or else the "sticker" is going to come right off.
Other than those two negatives I really liked my experience and like anything new there's a learning curve. I will be trying these again if I find them in a store!
Most Helpful Critical Review Nice, probably works better on shorter nails
I received the GLOSS Ultra Shine Gel Color Nail Strips complimentary from Dashing Diva. I chose the Moody Mauve color. These are essentially nail polish stickers. I had no problem putting the stickers on my nails. The tips have been a bit difficult though. If you don't get the strip filed down smooth it will continue to lift at the nail edge. For some reason they just wouldn't file smooth. The more I filed, the more it filed down just my nail and left a lip of polish. Quite irritating. Otherwise, these Dashing Diva GLOSS Ultra Shine Gel Color Nail Strips look really nice. The color looks great and has a lot of shine. I think maybe these are better for shorter squarer shaped nails. I have longer nails with rounded tips. I will try more though as I like not having to work with wet polish and dealing with the smell of polish. The kit contains 27 Gel nail strips in 13 sizes Nail File Instruction Sheet. Plenty of nail strips to find the right size.

I have received several orders, I was pleased with the quality and the ease of putting them on at your convenience. I have not used this color yet. But will continue to order.
Great true mauve
Christine from undisclosed
I usually prefer dark shades, but when I want a pop of color Moody Mauve is one of my faves from the Dashing Diva offerings. It's a true medium mauve that doesn't lean too pink or pastel.
Great if you hate doing your nails!
Katie from undisclosed
I have never liked painting my nails because all the effort in making them look nice, investing in an actually decent polish, and trying not to ruin them on day one was too much. For my birthday this year I decided to get acrylics and while I loved them, they were soo expensive and I hated how much they damaged my nails. These however are amazing! The application is very easy and you can take the time to make them right, and it's still faster than waiting for polish to dry. Typical polish would chip within one day for me, and I'm on day five with incredibly minimal wear! I work in food service where I'm constantly washing hands, using my fingers to open boxes, and all the jazz. And! No one can tell they're stickers! Highly recommend.
I would Recommend

These nail strips are very easy to apply and the finish on them are really glossy and nice. They lasted me about 2 weeks. Especially for the way I clean at home and do dishes everyday I would totally buy these strips that were gifted by Dashing Diva
So much better than ones I've tried before!
Naomi from undisclosed
I received this product complimentary from Dashing Diva in order to review. I have tried the acrylic stick-on nails before and honestly hated that experience—my hair would get stuck between the nails and it was not a fun experience. HOWEVER! Because these nails are gel stickers, they stick onto my nails with no gaps whatsoever, and that doesn't happen! I love the way they look.
I do want to say that they stick directly onto your nail, so you have to shape/file them yourself. Important to note because I didn't realize at first and cut my nails super short for it!

These are fantastic nail stickers. Easy to position and apply. Last a good, solid two weeks, then remove with 5 minute acetone cotton ball soak.
Not great :(
Meg T. from undisclosed
Dashing Diva gifted me their new gel nail polish strips and I must say these didn't work for me at all. I had high hopes because I've heard such good things. I followed the directions and made sure my nails were clean and the strips just didn't stay on my nails. I finally got a few to stay put and they just looked like stickers on my nails it didn't look like nail polish at all. I think I'll stick with going to the salon.
Better than polish
Krista from undisclosed
I was gifted by Dashing Diva the Gloss Ultra Shine Gel color in Moody Mauve. This is my first experience using nail strips. It was actually really easy to apply the strips and I was super impressed with how well it turned out. It looks like real nail polish. I love the color and it looks like a natural painted nail. The big plus side is that it lasts longer than nail polish. It doesn't chip like regular nail polish so the strips last a lot longer than a regular polish session. I will be using the nail strips again since it worked out so well for me.

I received this product as a gifted by dashing diva to try. What can i say im not disappointed. I have had a few of dashing divas products and i love them. I am hard on my hands and i cannot keep any polish on my nails. This allows me to keep my nails looking great till they grow out. The product stays on your nails with no problem through what ever you put it through. It is kinda a tedious task to put them on but well worth it.
Easy to Apply, Durable Nail Strips!
Ashley A. from undisclosed
These Dashing Diva gloss color nail strips are a great concept for those who want a quick manicure without a trip to the nail salon. The kit comes with several sizes of nail strips as well as a nail file to shape your nails and remove excess from the nail strips when applying them. I love that the moody mauve is a neutral tone that goes well with many skin tones and outfits. These strips are fairly easy to apply and don't require much maintenance. They are shiny and appear like gel polish applied to the nails. I wash my hands a lot, wash dishes, and work with my hands daily and these nail strips hold up well. I definitely recommend this product to others! I received this product complimentary from Dashing Diva in exchange for my honest feedback.
Stunning and Easy SPA-LIKE nails
Maitri M. from undisclosed
I absolutely love this color and how easy it is to do my nails. This product was gifted by Dashing Diva to me. These nails are absolutely stunning and so easy to put on. It takes less than 10 minutes to get spa-like nails. The best part is that these nails last for about 10 days. No chipping. Just fabulous nails!
My new favorite thing!

I have grown obsessed with these gel nail strips. They stay on for longer than even 14 days as they advertise. Love all the different colors and options. I will never go back to salon!
Not as dark as I like

Amazing color and product!

I work in a hospital environment, and this color is a perfect shade of pink. It looks professional, and stays on really well.
Didn't work for me
Zeo P. from undisclosed
In theory i thought this would work, but it didn't for me. The small sizes didn't fit my pinky or ring finger it left a side exposed. The color was beautiful, the thought was cool but these are poorly executed in my opinion. I wouldn't recommend. Dashing diva gifted me.
Really love it

I was excited to test out this sticker gel nail polish set. I have never used the stick on type polish so I was very curious. I followed the directions and they were very easy to apply. I used the nail file to file off the excess. I have a job that puts me out in the elements and requires a large amount of hand washing so I was really going to put these to the test. I was very thrilled that they stayed on much much longer than my usual paint on nail polish. I can't wait to see how long these will last but they have already been on an impressively long time.

I received this product complimentary from Dashing Diva in Mauve color and I was delighted with the result on my nails, it is easy to apply and fast, which any mom would appreciate to save time. I hope it lasts for several days as promised but I can say that my nails look beautiful
Beautiful and easy to use!
Lindsey R. from undisclosed
To be totally honest, I was hesitant to try these! I'm not normally good with anything to do with my nails and was worried I would mess these up. Luckily, these are incredibly easy to work with! Going nail by nail I did not have one single mistake or re-do! I almost want to say they are fool proof. Both hands took me about 20 minutes and that's a lot shorter of a time period than it takes me to paint my nails because I usually have to fix so many mistakes. The color Moody Mauve is seriously gorgeous and perfect for fall! I love the gloss look to them as well. My nails really look like I went to a salon and got a gel manicure! My only slight issue is I feel like I needed a little bit better of a nail file which I had so no big deal! Overall, I absolutely love these nail strips! I will purchasing these in other colors for myself in the future! *Gifted by Dashing Diva.
Love the concept

As inept as I am with polish, I did an adequate job with the Diva strips. They lasted a full week (polish never makes it through the second day) and looked good. The main problem for me is that my nails are wide and even the largest strip leaves a margin of bare nail on either side of my thumb, as well as most of the other nails. Maybe with practice I will improve at matching the size to each finger, but it's a challenge. I also tried the press on nails, with the same issue—too narrow for my nails. The colors (Moody Mauve and Rose Quartz) were great and I was mostly happy with the way my nails looked.
Amazing product - works easily

I received this as a gifted by dashing divas for free for my honest review. I love the muave color, these go on very easily and easy to apply. They seem to me like they will stay on a while and not chip like the normal nail polish would. I definitely recommend!
