Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nailpolish Strips...

I've been on the lookout for these for a while and finally snagged a box of Sally Hansen Salon Effect Nailpolish Strips.  Basically they're nail polish stick-on sheets that can last up to 10 days and are removed with regular nail polish remover.  They come in packs with 16 sheets and you stick a sheet (of various sizes) to the corresponding nails that best fit.  The application is pretty straight forward and just requires clean, dry nails, a small nail file and cuticle stick.  They definitely take longer to put on then a regular nail polish application but a little practice makes perfect. At around 10 dollars a box (for one application) they're not an amazing value, but they're definitely different!  The final application is smooth and you don't require a top-coat because the finish is already glossy.  The big question is how long they'll hold up for? 
My money is on 3-4 days.



Creative yes, but are they funky or fugly... I can't decide?


who doesn't love Houndstooth on a painfully pale hand?
(personally I would have preferred the leopard print)

What do y'all think? Is this something fun and different or should this be reserved for 15 year olds only?

these are funny- i've never heard of them before. based on how they look here (bc you're not the only one with a painfully pale hand), i would probably wear them for a silly, party occassion. and probably keep them in the medicine cabinet for more special occassions, like weddings and baptisms.

I think the idea sounds fun! My hands are "man hands" and pale so maybe not for me, but someone with frail pretty hands:-) lol I like your houndstooth

Funky, but fun... my nails are too short to bother. Mama needs some fake nails first. Ha!

nah i think it's for all ages, but you are right i'm not sure how long it would last. nail polish never lasts on my fingers. i'm having a flat iron + other goodies giveaway on my blog tomorrow lady! :)

I love them! They're not just for 15 year olds. I want to get some! I do a terrible job painting my nails. Have a great weekend!

Megan said...

i havent tried these yet...BUT...with that being said, I totally would! but i like bite my cuticles, so my nailbeds are so nasty. ugh...biting cuticles is probably something a 15 year old does, not a 27 year old :(

either way, i am loving them! have a good weekend girl!

Lindsey said...

Wow! Talk about a statement! How fun!!

Have a great weekend pretty lady!

I picked up the houndstooth design the other day! I am a little worried as i don't have round nail beds on some of my nails, so they probably won't fit properly.

I think the designs are great for any age!
