If you know me, you’ll know that I am extremely lazy when it comes to housework, cooking (bleh) and being fancy about my nails. Usually I’ll leave it to the professionals to get it sorted, I blame myself for not having the creative bone. So when I was given a few boxes of Sally Hansen’s Salon Effects (real nail polish strips); I’ll be honest with you I procrastinated to uses them.
Simply because I couldn’t be bothered, even though I was told that it was very easy t o use and the end results are amazing. So I left them in my “to try” box for months and one day I got bored trawling through my boxes and decided to give it a go.
The result speaks for itself in the picture below. I was dumbfounded at how easy it was to apply. It was as simple as peeling it out of the packaging, slap it onto the fingers and a gentle thug and buff and viola! I did all 10 fingernails in less than 10 minutes, no kidding.
#260 Glitz Blitz
Best of it all? No drying time required and all I did was just applied an additional layer of top coat over it. Look at how vibrant and perfectly fit for my nail shape, no trimming required either. Definitely my go-to party nail from now onwards. Everyone was surprised that it was peel and stick nail polish strips instead of real glittery nail polish.
Mine lasted 7 days with no peeling, no chipping, no flaking whatsoever until I had them removed by this lovely lady at Miss Fox (bless her for it took her a while to remove them, she was impressed with how long lasting these strips were) to get my moon mani – which you will soon see in my upcoming post.
Overall, I highly recommend the Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Polish Strips RRP AUD$14.95. Each kit comes with:
- 16 nail polish strips (for you to pick the right sizes and essentially these are one-offs),
- cuticle stick to help push and smooth the strips and
- a mini file/buffer to prep and buff off additional strips.
