Makeup Review, Swatches: Sally Hansen Salon Effects Real Nail Polish Strips – Great Halloween Looks
Who loves Sally Hansen Salon Effects Real Nail Polish Strips more than I do?! I have been sporting them since they launched, my first pattern being Laced Up. I was mentioned in an article because one of my Facebook friends saw how often I posted new nail pics; it became interesting for them to see which style I would choose next to wear. The article (should you want to read it) can be found on makeup.com.

The technology behind the no dry-time — and that it is not a sticker but an actual nail strip — to me is genius. No dry-time, instant glam and nail polish strips that last up to ten days makes me a happy beauty writer (self-professed nail-a-holic). Each Salon Effects Real Nail Polish Strips kit includes 16 nail polish strips, a cuticle stick, mini file/buffer and instructions for use. I may need to create a video as I have done them to myself in about five minutes. Most of you see my nails in the articles I write and often ask what type of nail art I use. Here’s your answer!
These designs are limited editions, so grab them while you can as I have seen many sold out already. The patterns this year are: Numbskull (sampled), Spun For You (fantastic silver and black spider web design), Batty For You (black bats galore against a magenta/purple-like background), How Corny (candy corn in a step and repeat pattern) and Patch-O-Lanterns (traditional Halloween colors of both orange and black with pumpkin cut out designs).
My nails do serve as an outlet for creativity within my wardrobe — it’s amazing that some people think I have spent a lot of money on my “nail art,” as some places do charge as much as $60-80 for the individual patterns on each nail, when in fact I have spent under ten dollars most of the time! It’s as easy as 1-2-3! Available for $9.99 at chain drug stores, food stores and mass merchandisers nationwide.
