Sally Hansen Salon Effects

Today I have a really cool product to share, the Sally Hansen Salon Effects. This was the first I have ever used anything like this before and I was very impressed.

This is Glitz Blitz

They are very interesting and not what I expected. They are real polish strips and they are packaged in air tight containers to preserve them. Each strip is about 1.5 inches long, they were long enough that I was actually able to use 1 strip for 2 nails because my nails are fairly short. I did have to cut them and shape them when I did it like that but it worked out okay and wasn't too too much work. The directions are really easy to follow and application is pretty fast and simple.

The only negative thing I have to say about the product itself is that any unused strips are going to dry out (unless someone knows something I don't). I still have them but they aren't sticky like they were when I first opened it so they don't just stick to your nail. If anyone knows how to preserve the remaining opened strips I'd love to know how.

Over all, i really loved the Salon Effects strips and would buy them myself. They are perfect if you are in a hurry and want a cute nail art design. Just stick them on, shape them and go, no dry time needed. I have seen them anywhere from $7 to $9 at Wal-mart and several drug stores. The price is kind of high for my taste, $9 for 1, maybe 2, applications is kind of steep but there are a lot of really cute designs so I'm sure I'll bite the bullet and pay it anyways lol.

I was sent this product for review. My opinions were not influenced in any way by the company.
