These strips are SO easy to use. Just follow the directions in the box and they will turn out perfectly. They only take a minute to apply and feels almost like regular nail polish, except smoother!
Sally Hansen claims that the strips last up to ten days, but she's lying... they last longer! I had my new years mani for over two weeks before I finally took it off. I was able to wear it for new years, and then keep it for my sorority's recruitment week two weeks later. I didn't even use clear coat... imagine if I had! The real problem with these mani's is my regular nail polish chipping :)
(Excuse the picture, my boyfriend helped paint my nails for me)
The next time I used the strips I remembered how much extra I had so I tried using one strip for two nails. I have really long nails, but it worked! So in that box of "Spring Fever" I had a cute mani for Spring Break amd FIFTEEN leftover strips! How awesome is that?!
The strips say that they can be removed with nail polish remover, but I always just peel them right off. They never peel on their own but they are very easy to peel off when you're ready for a new set of Salon Effects ;) Or another mani, but why would you bother with those anymore?! I've never actually tried to get them off with polish remover, so I'm not sure how easy it is.
In my voxbox I received a color called "Animal Instinct." It's a pink zebra print, and very cute. I am super excited to try it out for my bestie's 21st next week. I'm thinking a mani like this: (just picture the white as bright pink!)

One thing I wish SH would do is come out with a multi-color cheetah print sort of like this:
I would buy that in a heart beat!
So, in conclusion, go buy a box of Sally Hansen Salon Effects right now! They are just too awesome.
