Sally Hansen recently kame up with a new product, the Salon Effects, real nail polish strips. They run around $10 but I got mine at my local drugstore when they had a sale going on, buy 1 get one 50% off. I ended up spending $15 on the two I bought. Sally Hansen claims these strips lasts up to 10 days, requires no dry time, and it's easy to use.
They have so many designs to choose from, I noticed most were bright one color. I decided to get 220 "Cut it Out' a black/white flowery design. And 360 'Laced Up' a lace pattern with floral design too.
For this review/tutorial I'll be using 'Laced Up'.
This is what the kit brings: instructions, cuticle stick, mini file with buffer, and two packets with 7 strips each.
These are my clean nails before beginning. I followed all the instructions inside. Cleaned my nails with polish remover and smoothing nails for the strips to last longer.
Opening the first packet, komes with 7 polish strips, all different sizes. They have nail polish scent.
This photo was taken after going through the instructions and applying my first strip!! So pretty!
What I did before was, folded them in half, and cut them. This way I'll get two uses per strip because my nails are short and the strips are long.
I numbered them on the back so that next time I know which nail it belongs to.
Here I'm applying a strip on my ring finger. The excess you remove it with the cuticle stick and using the light pink side of the file.
Working my way through, the more I did the easier it felt.
Work done!! I think it looks amazing. Saving so much time from using the regular method, applying base coat, top coat, needing a design plate, etc. This is just one strip, and you're all set!! It's suppose to last 10 days so I'll keep you guys updated on that.
