New Nails

So, while in Nashville a couple weeks ago, I noticed a friend of mine had these fabulous leopard print nails. I asked her, "Are those the Sally Hansen stickers? I've seen those commercials but didn't know if they really worked."

She proceeded to tell me that yes, they do in fact work. That they were pretty easy to put on and seemed to last (they claim they can last up to 10 days).

A few days ago, I was at Target because I needed just one thing. However, if you love Target like I do, you can never leave with just one thing. I stumbled into the nail section and there they were. I figured what the heck might as well try them.

I snatched up a box of the leopard print and made my way home.

The box contains 16 strips (thank goodness because I messed up one three!), a wood stick (to push back cuticles), and a small nail file (to get the excess off). Both ends of the strips are rounded so that they can ideally fit almost any nail size. After I got the hang of them, it took me maybe 15 minutes to put them all on. Just take your time because if you mess one up and try to peel it off your nail, it can be hard to get them to adhere nicely the second time.

I loved the way they turned out! I have gotten so many compliments on them. They still look great (I've had them on for 4 days now). I'll keep you posted on how they wear for the next few days.

It almost looks like they are silver with leopard, but the silver isn't as prominent in person. I blame the flash!

Overall a really fun, quick "manicure" with NO dry time! Just stick on, file, and go!

Here's a link to Sally Hansen's sight to check out all the other colors available. I think these are available at most drugstores or Target/Walmart type places.
