NOTD - Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Strips in Frock Star

I was trying to get my hands on Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Strips for  ages until I spotted them in my local pharmacy. I have never tried nail strips before, so I was intrigued to see how they'd work. 

I picked up the shade Frock Star which you can see is a multi coloured glitter affair. I used these nail strips over Christmas as I thought they'd look great.

In each set of Salon Effects you get the following:

16 Nail Polish Strips
Cuticle Stick 
Mini File/Buffer

I like how you get 16 nail polish strips in the set. As being quite clumsy I needed to use more than ten strips. It did take me a while to get the hang of applying them, even buffing the excess strip off was a nightmare. This resulted in the loss of some polish off my nails which you can see in the picture below.

Being real polish strips they can be removed using a nail polish remover. As Frock Star is mainly glitter it did take a while to remove from my nails. I'm left undecided whether I'd purchase these again, maybe I would for upcoming holidays or a night out.

Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Strips retail for €8.95 and are available to buy in selected stores.

Have you tried these nail strips? What are your thoughts?



  1. Those are so pretty! I tried nail strips before and they're kind hard to apply!

  3. I really want to try these! I have no idea where anywhere near me sells them, but this is my mission :P

  4. Very pretty! I hope it's not as hard to take off as real glitter polishes are.

  5. i love these! so pretty! and look so much easier than glitter nailvarnish x

  6. Oh these look ace! I really want to try out nail strips but I've just never got round to it at all!

    I really must try!


  7. These look really good. But I find glitter takes aages to remove as well.. it does sound like they're a little tricky to apply though! x
