I love nail polish. It all started with my Grandma. I would go over to her house every Sunday after church and get a manicure. It’s one of those memories that I will always have. She would do fun designs, like stripes or dots..whatever I asked for.
Now as an adult I currently indulge in manicures whenever I get the chance, but when I’m in a pinch..or on a budget…I DIY my nails.
Last week on a trip to the store I came across these Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Strips.
They come in all sorts of fun designs too. I bought the zebra on a whim and immediately went home to try them out.
Honestly, I didn’t have high expectations. But I decided to give them a go.
The box comes with everything you’ll need: Pre-cut nail strips, a file, a small orange stick and instructions.
The strips are cut into all different sizes to fit all your nails. They also include a few extra strips in case you mess up…or have 16 fingers, whatever.
Start with clean nails and here’s what you do: find the strip that fits your fingers. (It says to start with you pinky but being a rule breaker I started with my thumb) Peel the clear protective strip off the top, then peel the backing off.
Repeat on all your nails and then you’re done. The first few take a little longer, but by the time you do the second hand you’ll be a pro. It took be about 20 minutes…but what’s great is there is no dry time!
I have had mine on now for about a week and they are still great!
When you’re ready to take the polish off you use regular nail polish remover.
Can’t wait to try out some of the fun other designs
