NOTD + Sally Hansen Polish Strips Review

20 Apr

Sally Hansen - Commander in Chic + Sally Hansen Polish Strips - Laced Up

If you follow me on twitter, you know I’ve been raving about these lately. I picked up this set a little over a week ago, not expecting much from them, but my curiosity was getting the best of me. I was shocked at how great they are! I only used it on one finger, my ring finger, as an accent. I had it on for 5 days, and only changed it, because I picked up a few more sets and wanted to try them out The nails the strips were on still looked as perfect as the day I applied them, while I had changed out the polish on the rest of my nails twice in those 5 days!

The downside is that they can be sort of tricky to apply. You need to make sure that your cuticles are all pushed back and that you swipe each nail with polish remover, to remove any oils or dirt, before applying. The patterned ones are a bit easier to work with, because the pattern will hide any imperfections more so than the solid colors will. The biggest tip I can give you is to be patient while applying them! I know it’s hard, I am one of the most impatient people that I know! I also apply a topcoat, even though it doesn’t say to. I found a girl through google who said they lasted 4 weeks on her nails with a top coat! I doubt they’d last that long on me, but this is the first product to make it more than 2 days without chipping on me.
