Nail of the Day: Sally Hansen Salon Effects in Check it Out

I would not consider myself a nail guru, though I do love a great manicure (what girl doesn't?). What I love even more is a manicure that is convenient, cheap and chic. Enter: Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Polish strips. These no-fuss printed nail polish strips are made of actual nail polish and look incredibly cool on the nail. An amateur like myself can pull off application of these nails with and come out with professional looking nails! I picked up the houndstooth print, even though there were about 5 o 6 I wanted to try! At $10 a box, you get 16 strips, a nail file and cuticle stick, and instructions on how to apply the strips. Application was fairly easy, although I did have a little help from my sister when applying the strips to my right hand. The strips are also very large and I ended up being able to use half of the strip for each nail, which left me with a few spare strips. The polish comes off with regular nail polish removers. I love these little manicures! I absolutely have to try the glitter effects they have as well as the lace one! Bottom line? An easy manicure that's trendy and adorable, I can't wait to try out more patterns! Below is my Check it Out Nail of the Day. Have you tried these Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Strips? Leave your thoughts in the comments.
