I was impressed. Like Minx, another long-lasting nail product, there’s no drying time for the strips. Unlike Minx, no heat lamp is needed to seal the product to the nails. So if you’ve got steady hands and are good at doing your own nails, you can buy the Sally Hansen strips in the drugstore and apply them at home yourself.
After that manicure grew out, Tracylee and I switched to a gold-and-silver-flecked black Sally Hansen design called . It looked fabulous with my bold 18K gold and black spinel Clemence ring.
That one also lasted close to two weeks.Yesterday, Tracylee removed the last bits of Lust-rous with regular nail-polish remover, and gave me Sally Hansen Salon Effects nail polish strips in golden Glitz Blitz.
My gorgeous mother, BarbaraB, got a Sally Hansen nail strips manicure from Tracylee too. She picked the red-and-black I Love Lacey design.
I’m not being paid by Sally Hansen to promote this stuff. I just appreciate any nail color that holds up well. Regular nail polish never lasted more than 48 hours on my soft, easily broken nails; I used it only when I had a special event to attend. Then a friend told me my messy manicure was distracting from my rings. I didn’t want to waste time and money on 48-hour polish, so I was happy to discover Minx nail applications in 2009. Then Tracylee introduced me to Gelish soak-off gels and now I’ve got the Sally Hansen strips. All three products have lasted at least a week for me and often two weeks. Minx has the best metallics …
… Gelish is ideal for fun nail art …
… and the Sally Hansen is the easiest to apply. I recommend them all. If you can get Tracylee to do the honors, the results are even better. You can follow Tracylee on Twitter here.
