I am trying to polish my nails more often. I’ve sometimes opted for the nail polish strips that are available from different retailers these days. I absolutely can not do nail art to save my life, so I think it’s neat to be able to buy these prefabricated nail polish strips that already have a design printed on it.
You can buy these from different places, in all different prints. I’m partial to the floral designs. For this review I chose a more spring than summer print from Sally Hansen’s Salon Effects Real Nail Polish Strips.
One of the things I love about these nail polish strips from Sally Hansen, is that it is actually real nail polish. Sometimes you find some of these that are just stickers basically. You can feel that this is in fact, nail polish.
But these are really easy to apply too. Peel, stick, smooth, peel again, and file off the excess.
However, they lie when they say this stuff comes off easily with nail polish. It comes off, but it is thick and sticky and expect to get it all over your fingers trying. Good news is it comes off skin in one shower.
The removal was a bit of a mess for me, but I found it was still very much so worth it. The polish lasted for an entire week with very minimal chipping and cracking.
If you feel like something more decorative, these strips may be just what you need. I like how they give you the professional manicure look, but can be done yourself in minutes.
Pro Tip: I apply a layer of top coat onto these when I use them and find it extends the life of the polish by a few days.
