I have seen lots of reviews of Sally Hansen's 'Salon Effects' Nail Polish Strips. Most of the reviews have raved about them. From what I could gather the only down side was the price - $13. For a one time use item I consider $13 WAY too expensive! I was waiting at the chemist on Saturday (waiting in chemists sadly an all too regular occurrence) and roaming the aisles when I came across a display bin full of the nail polish strips. The best bit... they were marked down to $6.
It seems like I am not the only person who considers them too expensive for a cute gimmick. At $6 I was prepared to give it a go. I still consider it too expensive, but decided that I could treat myself. I chose two patterns that I couldn't create myself. yep two splurges. :)
They are simple to use. One tip that I picked up from reading the nail reviews was that it is important to follow all of the preparation and application steps and to not skip steps. I followed the directions and it worked perfectly.
Now to see how well it lasts.
This is a double keratin episode.... two for the price of one. How can you contain yourself.
OK so I went a bit too far.
Humour me and read on...
Saturday night it was hair cut time. AKA I have been nagged to do the hair cuts and now that I am not working I can't justify the extra expense of sending them off to the hair dresser so I am back t doing it myself.
yes I do a good job (so humble) but I hate, loath, detest, can't tolerate, (I think you get the idea) having little bit of spiky hair sticking into my skin and through my clothing. I couldn't ever cut hair all day every day.
First on the cutting seat was teen 2.
