Lookbook: Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Polish Strips, “Girl Flower”





I have had so many requests to do a review and post on the Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Polish Strips which have been out in drugstores nationwide now for almost a couple of months. I purchased Girl Flower because its totally my style and personality…the peace-loving hippie inspired print. Since this was my first time applying these, I wanted to apply them, and soak in all the details of the product, from how to apply them, tips and tricks, as well as my own personal review on them and how long they last. This post is going to essentially be photograph swatches of this particular print, and some quick thoughts, whereas next week I will feature a video tutorial on how to apply these, and get into greater detail after seeing how long these wear for. To see photographs and swatches,





Girl Flower is a pretty, vintage floral pattern that is very hippie/70′s inspired. I picked this print because I love colorful, floral print, and also because it reminded me so much of the ever-popular Minx floral manicure seen on many celebrities:



Katy Perry's Minx Nails



I adored this print when Katy Perry tweeted a photograph of her Minx nails, so I figured I’d go for the knockoff print of it. It’s extremely beautiful, and each finger will have a unique print on it, which makes your nails look extra fun and colorful.





These nail polish strips are made from real nail polish, and when you open up the foil sealed packets, you can vaguely smell the real nail polish in them. Luckily, not only is this the fastest way to give yourself a manicure with no smudging or nicks, but you can also avoid the nail polish fumes, because these do not smell!





Inside the box, you receive sixteen nail polish strips, a cuticle stick, and a nail buffer/file, which is everything you need to create the perfect manicure. This product is so insanely convenient that you could literally purchase this at the drugstore before a big event, or while you are traveling and have a perfect manicure in ten minutes. They also come in so many different shades, patterns, and finishes that you will find something for every occasion.









The box claims this manicure can last up to ten days. I am only on day 2, but I can tell you that this print is still perfect on my finger nails, even through all activities I’ve done. My video tutorial next week will show you exactly how to apply these nail polish strips in detail, as well as some tips and tricks for applying. I will also be able to tell you next week just how long these lasted on my nails! I can tell you that so far, I received several questions about how I got my nails to look so “cool.” I love sharing products like this!





Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Polish Strips are available in a variety of colors, patterns, and finishes at drugstores and mass retailers nationwide. Each box retails for $8-$10, depending on the store. However, CVS, Walgreens, and Rite Aid often have sales such as Buy 1, Get 1 50% off, so be sure to keep a lookout in your local circulars!



Be sure to stay tuned for a full video tutorial on application, and to find out how long these lasted on my nails!

    my friend just got the lace ones and she loves it. i would prefer to get the ones with less prints only becuase after a while it looks like a magazine cut out on your finger but i think its a cool concept.

    I agree…especially since so many people know about the strips now, too. I love the ones with less obvious prints and the solid colors as well!
