Yes, I know that EVERYONE has done some type of review on these. So, what’s one more for you to read? I bought two packs in November 2011—one for me, one for my mom. I’d read about them and seen friends and strangers post pictures of them to blogs and Instagram. I applied mine first, then did my mom’s. They came out great. Since then, we’ve bought several more.
Some colors/designs come out better than others. For example, the plain polish (no design) is much more pliable than the prints. Sucks for me because I like funky! The glitter lasts a long time, and my shortest wear of any was the Kitty Kitty print at 7 days. But, I use my hands a lot. If I was somewhere being dainty, they’d probably still be on. Anyway, it’s still a much better deal than nail polish which chips (on me) immediately. And way cheaper than getting your nails done every two weeks. I paid about $10 for them at Kroger. My mom paid $6 for some at Walgreens.
Something to note, once the pack with the strips is opened, the CANNOT be used at all. Yes, the directions say this…and yes I still wanted to conduct my own experiment. I keep my nails short, so what I do is only open one pack of strips (2 come in a box). I cut them in half and use one whole strip for two nails. That way I can keep the second unopened pack and use it later. Turns it into a $5 manicure. What a treat!
