Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Polish Strips

Hey all! Today we have a special surprise for you! It is Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Polish Strips! YAY! So, the advertising gimmick on this one is that you can have a total salon look with 'easily applicable' nail polish strips. So is this all true? Let's find out!
So we bought these for 11 dollars at a CVS drugstore, in the Fly with Me design. So, 11 dollars for one manicure, right? It's cheaper than going to a slon, that's for sure, and the designs are really cool and consistent. So it's definitely worth a try, but I don't think it's practical to have these on all the time.

Okay, so application is pretty simple, since the package has everything packed in nice and tight. They basically come in different shaped strips that you press onto your nail and then file off. Easy enough.

Wear is also pretty good. My sister had this manicure on for about a 8 days before she finally just got sick of having the same old thing on her nails (one of the many signs of a polish-holic!). The designs themselves are also really cool. We were originally looking for the laced desin, Laced Up, but since that was sold out we decided to go for this one. However, I'm confused by the fact that they have normal, plain colors like blue, green, and pink. What's the point of spending 11 dollars for plain nails, while you could just buy a bottle for $8.50 or something and get many manicures? All in all, I think that these are cool to try, but don't make it a regular thing.
