The nail design trend continues, and my favorite new manicure comes courtesy of the Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nails Polish Strips I’m wearing in this picture. Time didn’t allow for a mani, so I decided to give these new sparkly strips in Blue Ice a go. In a nutshell, they’re stickers for your nails. They come in a slew of eye-catching colors and designs (I’m going to try the lace motif pictured below far left next!). The box contains short, easy-to-follow directions and tools including a nail file and cuticle stick, which were handy for prepping my nails and applying the stickers. The whole process took about 25 minutes. The stickers come in a variety of sizes and must be put on clean nails. You just peel off the sticker and carefully apply it to each nail, using the flat end of the cuticle stick to seal down the edges. The strips do have some stretch in them, and I could easily tear away the extra material I didn’t need. So far, I’m loving the finished result. Their glittery effect far exceeds any laquer. The box says the manicure will last up to 10 days. I’ll admit, I wasn’t obsessive when applying these strips and didn’t exactly cover the excess strip over the edges of each nail as suggested. Whether or not that matters, parts of the stickers did flake off just a couple of days in (note: the strips come off with nail polish remover). Regardless, I am into the finished look of the mani and think these are definitely worth a try.
