Sally Hansen Salon Effects Real Nail Polish Strips – Review – Video May 30, 2012

Today I bring you the Sally Hansen Real Nail Polish Strips that I received in the Spring Beauty box from Influenster.com.
Check out the video below to see how easy they are to put on… It took about 20 minutes, but it was my first time doing them, also I was awkwardly working around a camera.  That is still faster than going to get a manicure and also less expensive.

The pattern actually looked real rather than printed.  I thought they were great looking, and I did get compliments.  Overall I thought they were pretty nice, and I liked how uniform they felt (compared to when I do nail art). They lasted about 2 full days before chipping, the third day the chipping was light, but I had an interview the next day, and they didn’t look good enough for first impressions so I removed them and did a simple french manicure.

Would I buy this product again? Yes, it was fun and a nice way to get pretty patterns – though I would never get the solid colors, might as well use normal polish for that price.

Will I finish the sample? Theoretically they are a one time use product, but I cut mine in half so I’ll get another use out of them – and yes I will use them again.

You can buy these for between $8 and $10.00 at pharmacies, but keep an eye out because sometimes you can get them on a “Buy one get one 1/2 off” sale, which makes them much more affordable ($6-7.50 each)

Hopefully you all had a Merry Christmas. I got some really nice swag. I had my family over and one of the husband’s friends joined us for awhile. It was just a really nice day.  Speaking of Christmas, guess what I wore ALL day?  My New York Color Liquid lip shine.  It went perfectly with my sexy smoky green eyes that I did to go with my green sweater. I had to reapply every couple hours – which is typical of a gloss for me, but I never felt chapped or sticky.  Overall it is probably in my top 10 favorite glosses overall (considering both color and formula)

Here is a brief video review of the NYC Liquid lip shine that I just received on the 24th from Influenster.
