Sally Hansen Salon Effects

My NYE manicure was Sally Hansen's Salon Effects in the Houndstooth pattern

Here it is, in all it's glory, just after application. I first spotted these at the end of December at Target for $8.99. I have also seen them at WalMart for the same price. Although the price seems steep, I will be able to get two applications from each box so it's really not so bad.

These apply much like Incoco but they come in a variety of fun patterns. I applied these on top of China Glaze Strong Adhesion basecoat and sealed it off with Seche Vite. I got almost 8 days with almost no tip-wear or chipping!

Overall, I was extremely impressed with this product. I am excited that the DIY home nail fanatic finally has an alternative to MINX and I hope this new trend in dry polish strips stays around for a long time!

Have you tried Sally Hansen Salon Effects? Did you get the same durability I did?

  1. Having seen these beautiful houndstooth beauties in person, I can say that it looks fantastic!! I'm planning on buying the gold or silver glitter dry strips for myself. I'm an Incoco addict, so I think that these dry polish strips will be a great addition to my obsession!
