On the 10th day of Christmas J9 gave to me…Sally Hansen Salon Effect Real Nail Polish Strips

So what exactly are they?  They give you a salon fashion manicure anytime, any place. It wears like nail polish because it is nail polish. There is no dry time so you’re ready to go. Salon effects lasts up to 10 days and removes easily with nail polish remover. Just peel, apply and file. Accessorize your nails with neons, glitters, and high fashion patterns.  Nail art can be super expensive at salons so these are the perfect DIY money savers!

Here is a great video on how to apply these nail strips:


I recommend applying a top coat over these nail strips.  One like Sally Hansen’s Mega Shine would do the trick!

It will help seal down the edges of the nail strips and make them last even longer!

I have tried many of the styles available but I think my favorite has been the black and white hounds-tooth pattern.

There are over 24 different patterns to choose from and they often do limited edition patterns for each season.  They are available at Shoppers Drug Mart and will cost you around $10.

Everyone will be asking you “where do you get your nails done?” and you’ll be able to boast that you did them yourself 😉
