I’m usually a nekkid nail kind of girl. I work with my hands. I wash dishes. I paint kids. My hands and nails get a lot of abuse, and as a result I usually don’t bother painting my nails because they’re just going to chip in 2 seconds anyways.
However. That was before I got invited to work a corporate party. After a long day of facepainting. I don’t know about you, but once I get some of that Wolfe black under my nails, it stays there…for days! I had to look nice for this party. I was desperate. I went to RiteAid to look for a solution. And there it was:
Yep. Sally Hanson Nail polish strips. You do some minor cleaning and buffing of your nails, then remove the plastic and paper sides of the strips, apply to nails, trim with a cuticle stick and voila! No mess, no smell, just a beautiful manicure! And no drying time! I was able to dress up my fingers in between clients at Seaport Village — and have a lovely manicure in time for the event that evening. I got lots of comments on my pretty nails.
And even Princess Java approved of the new look.
Alas, the new nailpolish did not stand the test of time and after 3 days of my usual wear and tear life, bits started to chip off. But for ease of application, this wins 5 stars and I’ll definitely try them again!
