Adventures in Products: Sally Hanson Salon Effects

Remember when I told you about Influenster
If you don't, you can go {here} to read about it!
The first product that I used in my VoxBox was
Sally Hansen Salon Effects nail polish strips.
This cute little kit comes in a box with easy to follow directions, nail file, and polish strips.

You get a variety of sizes and the directions say to match up which size works best with each of your nails before you begin (smart idea!) 

Then just peel, stick, stretch a little 

 And use the file to remove the excess polish strip.
I will start with the
1) Easy to follow directions.
2) SUPER LONG lasting! 
(Like over a week even with doing dishes and other cleaning.)
3) You don't have to sit around waiting for your nails to dry. (SO nice!)

1) Still smells like nail polish...I was hoping it wouldn't, but it did. 
2) Can be a bit tricky lining up the edge of the polish 
(especially when using my left hand to apply the strips to my right hand). 
3) Zebra stripes - not the biggest fan - however these do come in LOTS of colors. 

Over all: I would purchase these if they were on sale and if I found a color I liked.

I did receive this product free of charge, 
but the review written above is my honest opinion of the product.

  1. Such an interesting idea - I'd definitely try that out! (And I'm totally tacky enough to love the zebra pattern!)

  2. I think I'll try these if they're on a good sale. Thanks for the pros/cons!
