Nail art isn't something for me. I enjoy looking at other people's creations or konad creations, but to be honest I'm pretty stinky at it and it requires a lot of patience I don't have. That's were these Sally Hansen Salon Effects nail polish strips come in. They do the art for me I just have to stick them on my nails. I got these in the houndstooth "Check it Out" pattern.
These are not fool proof or easy breezy in my opinion, however, it's not like studying quantum physics either. I did not use base coat. Many of these were a slightly too big for my nail beds, so I just made do with it. The most difficult part of this was lining these properly up with your nail and trimming them down. I didn't get how you "file" the rest off. I don't know if my filing skills are to blame or the product. I ended up cutting these down to where I could actually file them and shape the properly. This was probably wrong.
End result after two coats of Poshe..
That all being said I absolutely love these. Yes, they may of taken a bit of extra effort and a bit pricey ($8.50-$10.00), but for someone who steers clear of nail art brushes and konad plates this is well worth it to me. I enjoyed wearing these for 5 days, before I decided to take them off (they had tad of tipwear, but no chips, so they could of lasted longer). It was fun and different for me, so I will repurchase again.
I bought this same pattern about a week ago but have been hesitant to try them because I swear I always find a way to mess stuff like this up. I love how they look on your nails, so maybe I'll take the plunge :)ReplyDelete
The more I hear about these, the more I'm liking them! 5 days of wear?! That's awesome! I tried something similar to these and was not impressed by the wear. Maybe I'll have to try these out after all.ReplyDelete
My mom bought me these exact ones, but I haven't tried them yet since I prefer doing my own art. They look pretty nice from the reviews I've seen, though! Maybe I'll wear them to an upcoming concert or something special.ReplyDelete
i never tried these before but they look very nice on the nails :)ReplyDelete
