What They Say:
Sally Hansen Salon Effects Real Nail Polish Strips
Where to Buy
These are fantastic. It comes with plenty of strips to match to your nail size and a little nail file, that has a buffer on one side (to help prep your nails beforehand) to file off the remaining strips. I have acrylic nails and I get a solid 14 straight days of wear before I start to see any type of "chipping". I have to say though, that around that 14 day time period, the chipping is very minimal and sometimes I get longer, so I would say that I get about 14+ days before I see any chipping or wear.
These strips are incredibly easy to put on! However I recommend reading the instruction insert before your first use. I buff and smooth my nails first before applying these so the surface is nice and even. I also spray my nails with alcohol and wipe with a tissue to make sure my nails are 100% clean of debris and any nail polish remover remnants, etc.
You want to stretch these up and over the nail. I didn't do this with the first nail I ever tried these on and it fell off soon after and didn't look very good either! There's something to pulling it up and over the nail that makes it stick, last and look better.
Not all strips are created equal! I found that certain styles have a thicker strip and they were more difficult to apply than the others. There's no way to know which ones will be thicker and give you trouble unfortunately, but I can share with you my experience: the blue and pink glitter strips and the laced up strips style - I found these styles to be thick and took me longer to apply. It took longer to file off the edges as well.
Have you tried these nail polish strips before? What do you think of them!? I love them and they are a definitely MUST TRY!
Wishing you all a beautiful day!
