      Comments about Sally Hansen Salon Effects French Mani Nail Polish Strips:

      This product appears to be easy to use and of good quality due to its brand. However, it is not worth the money at all. Once applied it looks awful, cheap, doesn't stay on the nails and is just a compete waste of money. Do not buy! I bought it thinking it would be a good, easy way to get a French manicure but I was wrong. Took forever to put on my nails, once put on the clear and white portions of the sticker looked so bad!

            It's very difficult to peel off the sticker applicators because of tacky nails. Very difficult to apply and isn't a smooth finish .

                  I wanted to try French Nails again and bought the French Mani this time. Very glad I did! A little learning curve to apply the tips, but once you do it, you have great nails for 10-14 days, easy. I love the look and reasonably easy to remove as well. I actually only use the tips and a clear nail polish to cover the tip and nail for shine. Great product!

                      Comments about Sally Hansen Salon Effects French Mani Nail Polish Strips:

                      I would recommend Salon Effects to people that have a problem with regular nail polish peeling off. I have NEVER had normal polish stay on my nails. ALL nail polish peels off my natural nails within a few days. Salon Effects stays on my nails for two weeks and then they need replacing because my nails have grown out. WOW! Wish I'd heard about these when they first came on the market. I don't baby my hands…never use gloves to wash dishes, change my own car oil, work in the garden sometimes without gloves and this polish stays on. I'm amazed. I removed my acrylic nails after years as I had fungus on two nails and my nails were awful; so thin and fragile. They even came off SHORTER than the quick and were sore. Ugh! A friend told me these stay on her nails for two weeks and recommended I try them. my nails were in such awful shape I think regular nail polish would have literally hurt when I applied it. I did NOT want to draw attention to my horribly damaged nails so decided to try the French Manicure without the tips. My nails have been growing for about a month now and are about 1/8th inch from the tips of my fingers. It amazes me that I may be able to have my own natural nails as Salon Effects seems to keep them stronger. The edges of my nails used to snag and tear and even the damaged nails are barely doing that. Also, I don't see the verticle spliting that I usually have on a few of my nails after using this polish for about a month now. I know when the damaged nails grow out completely, they won't peel, split or snag and rip when I use Salon Effects. Having to use polish remover or peel my polish off removes tiny layers of of my nail everytime I do it. Now I will only need to use polish remover a few times a month and will never peel my polish off again! Because the French Manicure is transparent, I decided to use regular polish over the top to cover my natural nails better. Oops, after I did, tiny bubbles appeared, but they weren't that noticeable so I just left them with bubbles. So happy that I tried this and am so happy to get off the unhealthy acrylic nail routine!

                        I am usually very good at applying nail products and I have used a variety of products. This one takes longer to apply and have it look good. The base color is not very difficult to apply, but getting the tips on evenly is tricky. The only upside is that they stay on my nails very well once they are done.

                        I've been on a frustrating search to find French tips that have a perfect line, don't chip and look stunning...my search stopped here! While they are a bit of a pain to put on, if you are patient and steady they turn out great. I put my gel polish over and they look wonderful. I am a picker too, so when my gel layer starting coming off I peeled it off all my nails, the white tip stayed, didn't yellow or anything and I just put another gel layer over the top. My 2nd gel layer is peeling again, so this will be week 3 that the white tips have stayed beautiful. LOVE THEM!! I did not like the pink color that came with the tips and by the time you mess up a few trying to get them on, there are only enough tips to do one manicure.

                            I love these nail strips! I don't have the steady hand to paint on french tips, so this product allows me to apply them myself. They keep my nails stronger and I get compliments on them.
