Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Polish Strips: Quick Change Artist

May 5, 2011


Bold, aren’t they?

While I am more inclined to put a funky color on my toes, these polish strips are awfully interesting. These are not the old Lee Press-On Nails. They are actually nail polish strips and their thin layer offers a variety of benefits that I can see.

    1. No time for a manicure? Stick and go. Application seems terribly easy and it appears they last for well over a week.
    2. Like glittery nail polishes but not the endless layers of polish to get an opaque look? STICK!
    3. Not artistically talented? Instant nail art.
    4. Want an “accent nail” on your hand or foot? Pick one and stick!

These are inexpensive and available at major grocery retailers as well as drugstores and beauty supply stores. Prices range from $8.50 – $10 for a box of sixteen.

I’ve not tried these yet. What do you think? Too much? Could be fun?

    I tend to find overly ornate nails cheap looking, even if they really were expensive salon jobs. And I’m having a hard time imagining press-ons of any kind being the right shape for every nail, coming out looking like real polish, etc.

    BUT. I think you need to buy a box and try it out and report back. Yes.

      You know, I’m with you on the “cheap looking” part. Now, the cool part about this product is that the stickers have a rounded cuticle option and a squarer cuticle option – so it will likely work with either nail shape. Plus it’s so paper thin that cleaning up the excess looks easy.

      I may have to bust it out and try it — on my big toe. For fun.

      BUT YOU TOO.

    One of my friends had the fishnet stockings decals on the other day. They actually looked super cute on her and weren’t overwhelming or super fake looking. I was surprised, since I’d kind of laughed at them in the store. 🙂

    My hairstylist had the leopard print on her nails today. I thought they looked professionally done, and everyone kept coming over to see them or show them to someone else. She said they were easy and fun and the only drawback was she had to use polish remover twice to get them off.

    I think its a great option, especially for those quirky days. A safe and inexpensive way to try something new!
