I received these strips in the Spring 2012 Influenster Vox Box free of charge for testing and reviewing purposes. More information at Influenster.com
These are, by far, the best nail polish strips I have ever used. They were the most pliable which made it so it was easier to get the entire strip flat on my nail. I have ridges so this has always been a problem for me. However, the Sally Hansen ones follow the natural shape of your nail. I also like that I can remove these with nail polish. One problem I have with other brands is that you have to peel them off to remove them. My nails are already weak and peeling so removing strips that way actually take a layer of my nail with it! That's why I'm so excited to be able to use nail polish for removal!!!
Here is how you would apply them:
1.) After selecting the correct size, peel off the protective layer from the strip.
2.) Break off the tab and peel the polish strip off the backing.
3.) Carefully apply the strip to the nail, pressing down from the center out to prevent any air bubbles or ridges.
4.) This isn't in the official directions with the products, but I've found the easiest way to remove the excess strip is with a nail clipper. I simply clip it down so it's flush with my nail.
4.) Since the clippers can't get it super straight, use the nail file that Sally Hansen include to file the strip down so it's even with your nail.
5.) Repeat nine more times!
There is NO drying time so you're ready to go right away! Sally Hansen has over 40 different colors/patterns to choose from. I think these are FANTASTIC and I will be buying them!
Thanks for reading and have a great day!
