Manicure Monday: Salon Hansen Salon Effects

Hey everyone! Kourtz here :)  I feel like I haven't written anything in a long time! Hopefully that will change. I have some blog ideas for the future and we have our great giveaway going on!

So while I was sick painting my nails was the last thing on my mind. The first day they cleared me to drive on my own I rushed over to Walmart and got 2 boxes of Sally Hansen Salon Effects after coveting them in the magazines I was reading.

Now there is a broad spectrum of designs and colors and it's great because if you are in a hurry and need to present yourself in a put together manner then you can get these strips and you don't even have to wait for it dry! Love it!! I have never been one to wear just a plain color of nail polish, I have to have it different because I am different lol! When I opened the package I noticed the nail polishy smell haha which Gabby responds "That's because it's real nail polish Kourtney" LOL She would probably add dummy after that but oh well! ANYWAYS! These are so flexible and so easy to apply to the nail and form it to the shape of your nail. And let's be honest, it looks like you went to a salon and paid bookoos of money to get a fancy design. Plus the compliments you get on them don't hurt either (I received tons).

I went with the Laced up and Misbehaved choices. I applied the Laced Up first and I love it because it's girly but edgy at the same time. It applied soo easy and only took me about 30 minutes to do both hands (just cuz I am OCD about getting it perfect haha). I applied Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat afterwards to just seal it and give it that extra layer to protect the design. So without further adieux here is Laced Up...

(After the 10 days

Pretty huh? I got amazing results with these. I wore the manicure for the full 10 days that's advertised and it really held up. I am super rough on my nails too so the fact that this barely chipped just amazed me!

I was hoping to get the same results with the Misbehaved option. Yeah, not so much. Now I know I applied it right but it just didn't want to stick to my nails and it chipped almost instantly, even with the Seche Vite top coat on. I wore it for the 10 days and it just didn't look pretty at the end. Who knows, maybe I got a dud batch :/ Here it is before it got all chippy...

I still love these and I got 3 more designs which include the Skinny Jean, Show your Stripes and Don't Get Catty. I like these alot because I can be lazy haha!! If you're not so good at doing the fancy designs then I say go for these! My little sister got the Laced Up and she also said it was easy and she loves them! She wants more now too haha!

Let us know what you think of these! Did you have any problems? Which design do you love the most and want to try? Leave us your answers in the comment section!

Have a great start to your week everyone!!!
