I don't know if this is the right place to post reviews from Bandaids members, so this can be moved if it's not.
Anyway, a few weeks ago I bought a box of the Sally Hansen nail polish strips in the You're A Star design (at least I think that's what the name is). They're the ones that are blue with black stars. I tried them out today and want to write about my experience using them.
I'm very bad at doing my own nails, I have small hands and nails and am clumsy with nail polish and getting it in the right place on the nail, making sure the coating is even and everything. I did not find these nail polish strips very easy to work with at all.
If you've seen the tutorial video, Avril demonstrates how to apply them. She made it seem so much easier than it really was. I think this is the type of product that will not work for everyone. If you are good at doing nails, you will probably find this product very easy to work with, but I had a difficult time.
It took me a ridiculously long period of time to apply them, at least 30 minutes or more. I have no idea how Avril can do these in the car or airplane because I needed scissors to cut off the excess and there were little bits of scraps all over my desk. It's almost just as messy and inconvenient as real nail polish.
The only benefit of these strips is that there is no drying time.
Rating: 1/5 Sorry
However, if you would like to try these strips and think you won't have a problem, by all means try them. In my case, they just didn't work out so well. Another problem with them is that, yes you get 16 strips, but once you cut the excess off, it pretty much renders them useless and you have to discard them. Then you are basically left with the strips that are too big for your nails. They cost $10 per box, so I think for the price, they're a rip off. I only bought them because I was curious to try them and because they were Avril's designs. I think, unfortunately, I will revert back to using regular nail polish, sorry Avril.
