Sally Hansen Salon Effects

One of the things I hate about doing my nails is having to sit down for a good 45 minutes to wait for all my nails to dry. At this point, I am pretty much rendered useless and at the edge of my seat because I fear that a slight move might damage my hard work.

This is exactly what Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Strips are for! A no dry-time formula. It's real nail polish made into strips with a variety of designs to choose from.

Don't Get Stuck With a Sticker!

Nothing feels or wears like real nail polish. Now Sally makes it easy to get Salon Effects anytime, any place using real nail polish – with no dry time! Don’t settle for plastic imitations that peel off. We’re the real thing. Just peel, apply & file! Learn more at

  • No dry time
  • Lasts up to 10 days
  • Removes easily with nail polish remover
  • 40 must-have styles

Honestly, I never really thought about picking this up at the drug store because I've always been weary of tedious nail art work. Painting my nails is enough hassle already! So, when I saw that my Influenster Spring Beauty Voxbox included this product, I wasn't THAT excited.

When it finally came to a point where I had to try it out so I can review it, I was anxious. Surprisingly, it wasn't hard or complicated! The instructions were clear and straight to the point, the materials were satisfactory and they performed incredibly well. I was a happy girl!

Let's try to review all the things that it claims to do:

No dry time - True enough! It was fast and easy.
Lasts up to 10 days - It lasted me about 8-10 days with maximum hand harassment :D
Removes easily with nail polish remover - I can even peel it off!
40 must-have styles - I didn't really LOVE the Zebra print, but I do love all the different patterns they have!

A few things I'd like to mention about the product is that:
  • It didn't really fit my nails perfectly.
  • For $9.99, one set of nail strips is kind of...extravagant? Maybe it's just me, but it would have been a great deal if it came in two to three sets.
You can purchase this at any drug store or Sally Hansen retail stores. You can check out for more of their products and details about this product.

What do you think about it? Would you purchase this? I would definitely get myself a few sets just because of the adorable prints and of course its lasting power!

  1. I have this same design!I do like how easy they are to use, and was surprised by how long they actually stayed on. I got a lot of compliments on my nails! The price however, is a bit steep for one set.
