Review: Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Polish Strips
On Sunday I decided to try out Sally Hansen Nail Polish Strips. They claim to be better than regular nail polish because there’s no drying time and stay on for up to 10 days.
Applying them was fairly easy. I had no issue getting them close to the cuticle or making them straight. Though I found they didn’t stick to the edges of my nails well, which is possibly because I keep my nails fairly short.
It took me about 40 minutes to put them on, though with some practice I could probably do it in 20. The middle stuck really well, but my the end of the first day the corners had peeled off on a few nails.
After six days they had chipped quite a bit, but I’d say they lasted longer that regular nail polish, which usually looks like this after about three.
They cost $10 at Ulta, which is a bit expensive for one-time use. I can do solid colors, sparkles and stripes on my own, but would definitely use them again for leopard and lace on special occasions or nights out when my nails need help but I don’t have a lot of time.03.25.11 in makeup & hair, review
