Polish Strips – Sally Hansen Salon Effects Range

I got my hands on some of Sally Hansen’s new Salon Effects Range. Rather than nail polish these are polish strips…

What I really like about these is that you get everything you need in the box. I recently bought some Rebel Nails strips. Mid application I had to run around the house looking for a nail file and orange stick. They also come with instructions – believe me, I needed them the first time.

I have yet to try them but the strips are designed to last up to 10 days and are apparently easy to apply. We’ll see. I like the idea that there is no need for base coats, top coats and nail painting – basically everything I associate with a traditional polish application. The pack provides a variety of sizes to suit all nail widths but only enough for one full application. At €8 this seemed steep to me. Then again, I would pay a manicurist to do this and it would cost at least double. It will be handy around party season to have a week where my nails are done.

I’m looking forward to trying these out. I’d love to know what your thoughts are on nail strips versus nail polish.
