    Comments about Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Polish Strips:

    These are so quick to apply and easy to use and look great for over a week. I bartend and these stay looking nice all week and then some. Much better hold up than polish. However, use acetone to remove, and they can weaken your nails like a gel mani does.

        I wish I had found these years ago - I wouldn't be a nail biter anymore! These look fantastic for more than a week if you use a clear top coat. So much easier to apply than regular nail polish!

        The secret to REMOVAL is - soak cotton ball in acetone, place on nail and wrap in aluminum foil. Do all 10 fingers and let set for 10 (ish) minutes. Slide finger out and voila, no residue! Took me until the second time removing to figure that out =)

                  One box can be used for fingers and toes. Saves me a lot of money since I don't have to buy the one for the toes. Very easy to apply, a little hard to remove though. Stay beautiful for more than a week.

                    I have a son who is 3 and a newborn that is only 2 months old. This is the BEST product for moms on the go that do not have time for nail polish to dry or no one to watch the kids to get a mani/pedi done. It also does not chip that easily and lasted full days. Stood up to house duties even helping the hubby wash the car. The only con is it can take a while to remove but totally worth it.

                    Comments about Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Polish Strips:

                    I used "The Bold Rush" pattern and it was beautiful. It is an ombre pattern, gold to purple. I have very short nails, so I had to trim some of the gold next to the cuticle so the purple would show properly.
                    The application was somewhat tricky, but since I am ambidextrous, it was do-able.
                    I loved the look...for the 2 days it lasted :'(
                    They started to chip and wear off the front edge right away. For the $8.99 I paid, they definitely were not worth the cost or the effort. I really wish they did work--I'd happily pay the money to do these again, especially for special occasions.
                    They were also somewhat difficult to remove--lots of remover and scrubbing. But I'd expect that if the product was meant to be long-lasting.

                      Comments about Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Polish Strips:

                      I've tried other brands of nail polish strips and Sally Hansen is the absolute best! There is a small amount of stretch to each strip that makes application really easy. Not only that, but if you are currently wearing your nails short, you can finish one nail, tear it off, and then apply the second half of the strip to another nail. I find that I can get two applications out of each box!

                      For longer lasting effects clean your nails well, apply a base coat, use strips, and seal with a clear top coat. I find they can last even longer than the advertised 10 days with a good top coat.

                      Some complaints are about the strips drying out while being stored over a long period of time. I've been lucky and never run into the problem. Even with a box that sit in my cosmetics drawer for over a year. Try to store your extra opened strips in a sealed ziplock. Only use one of the sealed packs of the two in each box, if you can.

                      You will get so many compliments on these designs. I have so many questions on my nails and I happily tell them how easy it is.
