This was such a fun experience! My first official REVIEW and my first time trying this product! I received this product complimentary for testing and review purposes from Influenster. So as I've stated in my last video I was so excited to try the goodies I received.
I've heard all the rave about the Salon Effect and have seen them in stores a few times with sparked curiosity. When I received them in the mail, I was so anxious and nervous to try them. Here's a bit of my experience.
I just couldn't wait to have a little fun with these bad boys! Did I mention I LOVE animal print?! I opened the box and it came with detailed instructions, but I still messed up a little bit and that's fine. By the time I got to the last nail I was pretty good at it. And I chose to do a few accent nails just for fun. I did rip one a little bit trying to remove the design from the strip, but I used a topcoat to hold it in place.
*This was from the first day. I was so excited to get a pic, I didn't wait to clean up the edges of the other nails. That's another plus with having the Sally Hansen Salon Effects, you won't have to worry about clean-up. Please excuse the scar, I cut myself somehow. It happened before I did my nails, so don't worry you will not get attacked by a while beast wearing these nails..lol.*
It's stated to last 10 days, but unfortunately just being 4 days in it didn't. I think it's because my nails really weren't long enough to fold the loose edge under as instructed. Maybe that would've worked. They're still on but just a little chipped here and there from some of the edges folding upward. Most were handled with a clear coat of polish to keep in place. Also, I'm so rough with my manicures, I hardly ever use gloves while doing chores like a diva should, so that needs to change. I used the biggest strips for accent nails for my big toes. They are just fine, no chipping, but you will NOT see a picture of those puppies anytime soon..sorry! lol Maybe next time! Maybe not! ha! But the plus side to my nails being shorter, I'm able to use the strips again and again by cutting them in half first.
I really love the whole concept of a ready-made manicure. If you're in a hurry, not wanting to wait in a salon to get your nails done, or not very creative when it comes to doing your own trendy designs, I'd say it's fun to try. And if you end up buying more than one box and collect them over time, which I'm sure you will, why not create your own looks by mixing and matching? I can't wait to do this myself You can even have a few girl friends over for a manicure party and they can bring any they may have to share or trade. How about placing them in goodie bags? That would be so much fun!
