Perl Fashion Nail Polish Strips ~ Review

Hello lovely readers!  Today I have a great product review to share with you.  I received a box of Perl Fashion Nail Polish strips to try out. 

As you can see from the above photo, they come in a very nice little box with a little peek of the nail strips you're getting. 

The box comes with two sealed packages of 10 multi-sized nail strips (only one pack shown here), one small orange stick and a small nail file. 

I received the strips in "Razzle Dazzle", it's a beautiful silver glitter.  

They were very easy to apply.  You have to put them on clean, dry nails.  You take your strip and pull the protective backing and front off and apply to each nail.  I did have to cut a little on the sides of each strip before applying because they were all a little too wide for my nails.  But that's not a bad thing because I'd rather a nail strip be too big than too small.  

One of the big things I liked about these, compared to other brands of polish strips I've used, is that the left over Perl nail strips that had been opened don't dry out.  That's been a huge issue for me in buying polish strips is that they get dry and you can't apply them like normal anymore once you open the packaging seal.  This was not the case with the Perl, so that is a definite plus! 

The con to them is wear time.  By the end of day 2 almost all of them were peeling or chipping around the edges and corners.  When it came time for actual removal, the ones that I hadn't peeled completely off, I just took my regular polish remover and removed it like I would regular nail polish.

I think these would be great for a special event or weekend get away where you wanted something extra special and cute. They have a lot of great designs, you can check out more on the Perl Fashion website.  I love the "Retro Rave" and "Flashing Lights" strips, they are so fun looking.  They retail for $9.  

This product was sent for my review and honest opinion.
