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.
