As a make-up artist, I'm super hard on my hands. Those fancy gel manicures? I can maybe, maybe, get four days out of them. So my expectations for the Sally Hansen Salon Effects polish strips were pretty low. After seeing quite a few friends wear them to great avail, I decided to give them a try and I love them. I was an hour early for a commercial I was working on earlier this month- so I ventured into the local pharmacy and spent a lot of money on odds and ends in an attempt to waste time grab a couple of things I could use on set. The polish strips were on sale for buy one, get one 50% off- so I just grabbed four and threw them in my basket. I'm still getting used to applying them, but I'm determined to find a way to get two uses out of each pack. I chose to go with the "Check Please" style. The summer season always makes me want to listen to old ska (ala The Specials, Madness, etc...) and just relax, so I was feelin' the two-tone vibe with my nails and I've even included a playlist of some of my favorite tunes.
Made it through an entire shift at the boutique with only minor wear.
