I don’t often do my nails, but when one of my friends mentioned Salon Effects, I just had to give it a try. All I can say is . . . wow. One package has most everything we need. Just follow the instructions: shape nails, clean with nail polish remover (not included), peel and stick, remove excess. They were so easy to apply. I didn’t have to wait for them to dry. I’ve done some pretty rough stuff since putting them on, things regular nail polish would never live through, and my nails still look great.
Just one thing, I don’t know why they come in packages of sixteen. Who has sixteen fingers? I’d rather it be an even number, like ten or twenty. Now, I have six left over, which I’m told dry out eventually, since the package has been opened. Maybe these extras were meant to be just in case we make a mistake, but that’s hard to do.
I’m a Salon Effects convert. Will definitely buy more in the future.
UPDATE: It’s been ten days. I finally decided to remove them. They are chipped a little but they still look good. The only problem is the nail growth and a little wear near the nail bed. Nail polish took them off easily with a well-soaked cotton ball.
I had saved the remaining strips from ten days ago (taped the package up in packing tape) and applied those to my toenails today. I cut them up and was able to use them on all my toenails. They were a little dry and didn’t stick as easily, but with warm hands and very warm weather, they did go on.
I have discovered that cutting the strips will give me more mileage. My nails are short. 16 strips will cover 32 fingernails. Toenails are even better. I can cover three toenails with one strip.
