Review: Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Polish Strips

I was dying to try these and had collected a few coupons, but I lost them and I ended up paying full price. Oh well. The CVS in my area had a really dismal few displayed and only 1 or 2 in stock, so I grabbed the one that appealed to me most, "Check it out" and headed home.

The instructions are easy. Remove your nail polish. Then file your nails to the desired shape and buff over the tops of them to create a smooth surface for the sticker. Then you apply the stickers and file the ends to remove excess. My fingers are small, so I had to manually cut each strip to fit my nail bed.
Overall, I liked the ease of no drying time and superior staying power. At 7 days, there is a tiny bit of noticeable wear around the edges. I like the cool patterns and hope there will be more. For $10, it's not a bad deal for a 7+ day manicure with a cool pattern but I'd recommend purchasing on sale or BOGO. I have gotten LOTS of compliments lately.
