Most Helpful Positive Review Actually impressed!
I am horrible at painting my own nails. I hate the smell, the mess and the waiting. I decided on a whim to try these and am so glad I did. At first, I got frustrated because they do not fit all nails. I had to cut little slivers of extra "sticker" and apply it to parts of my nail that one didn't fit, but in their defense, my nails are wide and stubby. Once I filed these and applied a clear top coat, they look fantastic! I found my lifetime nail polish replacement. These are easy enough if you have a little patience. I have had mine on for three days now with no issues. I am hard on my nails too. I keep them very short and work a lot outside and the like. No chips, tears, or wear. They look amazing! I gave it four stars because they don't fit every nail type but then again, if you can do a little DIY, you can make them work without anyone noticing. I also ruined a couple because I couldn't get them right. I would still definitely recommend.
Most Helpful Critical Review Cute designs, but..
I was really excited to see these in the store because there were so many cute designs, and I loved that they have multiple options for the accent nails. I had another friend that had tried these (after I bought them) and she said they all fell off a day or two after she put them on. I haven't had that bad of an experience, but it hasn't been great.
My first complaint is that they don't make big enough sizes for the accent nails. I have really wide ring fingers, and the biggest accent they had still left a large gap. Plus they only had two of the largest size, so I won't be able to use any of the other accents - even if I used them on other nails, they'd still be too small.
Applying them was okay, but it did seem a little tough to file off the excess. Plus if you filed too hard, it would wrinkle the end, and it would lift some of the ends up.
They also seem to stay soft after you put them on. I've had mine on for 5 days now, and they're getting damaged because they never really set. I needed to pick a sticker off of an apple the other day, and that caused the thumbnail to get wrinkled. I noticed a dent in another one after I had my hand in my pocket for a while.
The tips also pull up a little bit. Not enough that they have fallen off, but enough that I get lint stuck to the underside of the front edge, which looks super gross. I can't try to file them off, because when I do, it seems to only lift the ends up even more, and then the dust from filing them sticks to the underside, which prevents it from sticking back to the nail.
I do love the designs, and I like that they stay shiny, but I think they need to work on the formula of the product.
Reviewed by 53 customers Complete waist of money

These things are horrible they look like something that would be sold in the kids department where they have fake makeup and toys for little girls
Emily from Kentucky
These are terrible! I can't believe Ulta even sells these. Not enough sizes, hard to file, and they fell off in a matter of 2 hours...Literally lying in bed doing nothing and they fall off.
Not worth it
SH from KS
I bought these a while back in the store, what drew me in was the designs and color options. I finally tried them out today, not great looking at all on my nails. I don't have the widest nails, but nearly all of the stickers were the wrong size for each nail. Never mind that you want to use the same accent color on the same finger on each hand, one will be the wrong size. Wouldn't recommend unless you have very small finger nails.
Did not work

Complete waste of money. Will never buy again
Dee from Minnesota
None of them fit my nails. They look terrible. Don't buy.
I'm never painting my nails again!
Linda the lazy nail girl from California
It takes only about 10 minutes to put these on and my first set didn't chip for 3 weeks! I was literally trying to see how long they would last and my nails grew out (showing bare space at the cuticle line) before the polish chipped! Not only that but they remove easily with no nail damage after soaking in acetone for a few minutes. I'm soooo impressed!
Not for wide naa
Akoboe from Charlotte
I would not recommend these for wide nails. There isn't enough stretch to them so the sides of my nails were not covered. I tried smoothing them out after applying in hopes that they would pull and stretch and I also tried stretching them before applying and neither method worked. I also noticed that once getting them on they looked like cheap stickers and lifted at the ends after filing them off. I followed the directions exactly and watched application videos and these just don't work for me.
Super cute / elegant - not opaque
Deb from New York
Really like the elegant look of these stickers. They're not opaque but they're pretty full coverage. Compare to 3 coats of Essie mademoisell
Evonni from Maryland
This product is a gem. I'm on my second set now. My first set lasted three weeks and my current set has been on for two weeks. I used the polish on my toes as well, 5 weeks in!!! This product takes a bit of patience, but so worth it. I found that adding a clear coat of polish to seal the edges works wonders. When the 'stickers' begin to lift, I simply apply pressure and seem to get a few extra days of wear. Also, when the edges do begin to lift, I buff them down. This works because I generally select a glitter or neutral color. Ordering another set today!!!
I would not buy again

Love this product was easy to put on, even worked in the yard mulching and planting flowers without gloves and stayed put
I would not buy these again
Lainey from Florida
I thought the design was super cute and this would solve the problem of manicures that ruin my nails, but you couldn't easily file off the extra and it was a mess. I ended up peeling them off and throwing them away.
Long Lasting and Looks Great
Sarah from FL
This was my first time using this product and you can't beat a gel-like manicure for that price! These were fairly easy to apply (a little more challenging to apply to your non-dominant hand). I filed them using the included filer and had some trouble getting some of the edges to be perfectly smooth, but you can use a nail clipper to cut off excess. I had these on for about 10 days. There was a little bit of damage to my nails from the removal but not very significant. Overall pretty easy to use, love that you don't have to wait for drying time and they look great!
This is for oval nails
Liz from NY
If you have square/square-oval nails Dont buy
Cat from Massachusetts
I hate painting my own nails so sticking polish strips was so much easier and more fun. Also no smell. My nails are very fragile. The stickers seemed to protect my nails from breaking. I actually caught my fingernail free edge when I was cutting vegetables and the sticker saved the nail. I wear gloves when I wash dishes, and I don't wash my hair every day, however the stickers didn't start to lift for 10 days. They had a few signs of wear as the days passed , but certainly nothing worse than a normal manicure. That said I would be careful not to expose them to extreme heat or pressure. I have since tried the incoco brand and I so far don't like them as well. They smell like nail polish!
Ashlace from OH - Ohio
These last longer for me than Incoco/Color Street nails but they are more difficult to apply. The sizing is not as varied because there are more colors in each pack. They also don't crack like those do. They don't chip but the ends will start to peel ever so slightly after weeks of wear. End result is they are more difficult to apply but that means they don't get damaged easily.
Dayna from Harrison Twp Mi
I purchased these as i am new to gel nail stickers ( covid happened so no salons open)
Another popular product sold by direct sales was lasting maybe 4 days and was more expensive .
I found these easier to use and they lasted over a week. I have short nails and they worked out great.
Looks like real polish + great to have during the shutdown
Melissa from PA
Regular nail polish ALWAYS chips off my nails within 24-48 hours, regardless of salon or polish brand. These gel strips look just like polish but still look great after 10 days. Pretty easy to apply as well! Very grateful to have these when all the salons are closed due to COVID.
erin from ohio
not sure why these strips don't get high reviews. I LOVE them. I'm rough on my nails. I use a glue gun every day for long periods. I get glue on my fingers and nails constantly. and these stay put! I can't even wear regular polish because the glue rips it off. but with these nothing moves or is damaged. they've lasted for two+ weeks. I've tried several designs too.
CoCo from Chicago
I saw the mixed reviews but gave a try and think they're great! As long as you prep your nail bed (buff/alcohol) these should last! The sizes aren't PERFECT to your nail bed but it's so subtle you can barely tell! I am very happy so far!
Make sure to apply starting at top of nail bed and smooth down to tips before filing excess off!
Sue from Slinger, wi
Definitely great product and would purchase again. I receive so many compliments.
Well worth it
Jz from Dublin
I applied this gel strip color for Valentines and it was so cute. They're are easy to apply if you follow the directions and they last for weeks.
I would buy this product again

Easy to apply. Looks like a professional manicure.
Don't last more than a day

They are pretty and I loved the colors. Easy to apply. Don't last more than a day and I didn't even go hard on them. Peeled them
Off at work. Embarrassing!!
Stick on polish
CatT from NJ
I really enjoyed these, once I got the hang of how to get them on right. Also, once you have them on, a clear coat will make them stay and looking super snazzy!
