Step 1: Select best fitting strip for each nail
Step 2: Remove clear protective plastic cover, then pee nail polish strip from backing paper.
Step 3: Choose the side of the strip that best fits the shape of your cuticle. Break silver tap from strip.
Step 4: Place strip against cuticle line. Hold strip at center for maximum control.
Firmly smooth over entire nail. Run flat-side of cuticle stick along edge of strip to firmly bond strip to nail.
Step 5: Smooth excess over nail edge, forming a crease around the edge of the nail. Gently file away excess from the nail edge using the light pink side of the file.
Repeat steps 2-5 for each nail, applying to thumbs last.
Personal tip: I apply clear nail polish on top just to try to make it last a little longer and protect the nails better.
To remove strips use nail polish remover.
These awesome finds can be found at your local drugs store, Walmart, or Beauty Supply. Sally Hansen makes these for manicures and pedicures. When I found them in Walmart, all I heard was AHHH… and the pearly gates have opened. See, I’ve been looking for an alternative route for my nails for the longest, seeing as though I don’t wear fake nails and nail polish never holds up well on my natural nails. And let’s just face the truth… no 21 year old woman should be walking around with busted nails. Lol! Sally Hansen has become my nails’ savior. I absolutely adore Salon Effects. They do last for quite a while and you can do so much with them. I’ve tried leopard print and have moved on to a glittery gold color. I decided to mix the glitter gold nails with one blue nail on each hand, just to had a pop of color and make my nails coordinate with my toes. Another great thing about them, is that they come with 16 nails, so if you mess up… no worries! Will you be trying these out?
