Okay, so remember waaaaaay back when, I mentioned something in this post about trying the Sally Hansen Salon Effects nail polish strips? Well, I finally did it!
These are the #340 Girl Flower Strips and I thought they would be perfect for a summer pedicure. Yeah, I decided to try them on my toes instead of my hands because, well, a wildflower manicure just seemed like a bit much for me right now.
I did do one accent nail on my hands with the flowers:
Not sure how I feel about that look. I think I might have liked it better if I'd chosen a better color for the rest of the nails. Maybe a sky blue, or a fun summery pink? This shimmery iridescent silver is just not doin' it for me really. (In case anyone is wondering that color is called Silver Lining and the polish is also Sally Hansen- Complete Salon Manicure.)
Also, not sure how I feel about the whole accent-nail-of-a-different-color thing.
I might be too old for these sorts of shenanigans.
Here's a close-up of the Salon Effects:
I'm still not sure if these things are going to hold up or not. I haven't yet showered so, I'm a little skeptical of how they're going to look once that happens. I've read some reviews and most people say they wear like iron, but a few people said they chipped off after a day or two. We'll see!
They were, by the way, pretty easy to apply, so if they do wear well, that would make them pretty f'n awesome.
