Nail Polish Review: Sally Hansen Salon Effects (UPDATE)

A few weeks ago I did a small review on Sally Hansen Salon Effecst Real Nail Polish Strips here on Ooh La La Blog . Well I’m back to tell you that the strips lasted  more then the ten days advertised on the box. I actually went back and tried another pattern. Both designs held up for a very long time without peeling or chipping.  I knew the polish strips were the BOMB.com, when I went to the nail shop to get my eye brows waxed and they complimented me on my nails. They wanted to know who did my nails and where was the shop located. They were really surprised when I told them I did my own nails. SO WHOOMP THERE IT IS! I would definitely suggest  Sally Hansen Salon Effects to women who aren’t afraid to do their own nails, and even if you are, give it a shot.  It’s simple and only takes a few minutes. There’s no drying time either so that’s always a plus. All you do is  peel, press, and go!  It’s simple and well worth the $8.50 at Wal Mart or the $9.99 at Walgreens and Ulta.

Here’s a few picks from my nails. Please forgive my polish technique, I kinda went outside the lines!

I used Sally Hansen Salon Effects in #240. It’s called “Check It Out”. I also used Pure Ice, # 303CP. It’s called ” Free Spirit”

I used Sally Hansen Salon Effects in #320. It’s called ” Kitty, Kitty” I also used NYC nail polish in #1313A. It’s called ” Big Apple Red ”

I used Salon Hansen Salon Effects in #320. It’s  called ” Kitty, Kitty”.  I also used Orly nail polish in #40294. It’s called ” Luxe” . I used  Sephora by OPI top coat. It’s called ” Only Gold For Me”.

On the last set of pictures, the real nail polish strips were on week number two and lasted another week after that. Any questions, just ask in the comment section and I will answer them for you.
