My Sally Hansen Nail Polish Strips

An easy alternative to nail polish? Well - When I heard that I will definitely say I was in a little bit of disbelief! I had been seeing the Sally Hansen Nail Polish strips in the drugstore for a couple months now and finally decided to try them! I mean common - who WOULDN'T want Leopard print nails?! (Actually - I did). Since CVS was sold out of most of the prints, I ended up buying "Laced Up." 

Let me preface this story by telling you that 2 girls in the office tried these strips before I did. They didn't look too bad on them, but one of the girls told me they chip very easily... Which sadly, was true. 

Applying the smelly (yes it smelled) nail strips was actually a longer process than anticipated. Besides having to meticulously place the stickers properly on the nail bed (somewhat of a challenge for me), you have to make sure you carefully select the appropriate size strip and then cut the remaining edges by filing down the excess strip. This took a while and my strips weren't 100% aligned with my actual nail beds.... not so attractive. 

Pros: These strips come in a wide variety of designs and colors - intricate designs your manicurist probably can't achieve on you

Cons: $10 - hmm my mani/pedi costs around $25 so I'd rather have the full treatment; Strips DO chip easily - almost faster than nail polish; AND they're a little smelly for the first couple of days

I wanted to try them but it sounds like alot of work.  I wonder if all brands are like this one? Do you know if they have other brands?

I bought the zebra print ones and haven't tried them yet.  I keep my nails very short (shorter than yours in your picture) so I imagine it'll take me FOREVER to put them on.  Yours look great though!  They looked lined up perfectly in the picture!  Cute print you chose!
