I love keeping my nails painted and looking nice, but I’m not one for doing much in the way of nail art – not that I don’t like it, but I don’t seem to have the talent for it at all. And there are no salons in my area that do Minx or gel nails that I know of, so my options are limited. However, I managed to find Salon Effects Nail Polish Strips by Sally Hansen and sat down to play with them yesterday.
They really aren’t that difficult to use, and I love the no drying time. Just make sure to do your thumbs last and take your time making sure the strips fit your nail bed. You can use them no matter the length of your nails, and they just look super cute. You can choose between art like the flowers on my fingers, or you can just choose a color. I went with the art, just to have something fun on my nails.
Salon Effects Nail Polish Strips retail at $9.99, and 16 come in a box along with a file and orange stick; you’ll need nothing else to apply these.
