WHY YOU SHOULD SKIP THIS PRODUCT
Finally, I’m doing a review! I know it’s been more than 2 months since my last review. But now that I’m back in Toronto, I hope I’ll be able to keep up with postings. So let’s get right on to it…


I hate to be a bringer of bad news, but these nail polish stickers just did not work for me! I followed the instructions very closely and these only lasted for about 2 days on me. It definitely did not fulfilled its promise of lasting up to 10 days. It was a little hard to apply at first, but I got the hang of it after the first nail. However, the application process still required a lot of concentration and time. In the end, the amount of time I had spend on these stickers was equivalent to using regular nail polish with a quick dry topcoat. Furthermore, some bumps towards the edges were just impossible to get rid off no matter how much I tried to smooth it out (Refer to the photo below). It got really frustrating in the end!


They seemed like they were adhering pretty well, but even by the next morning they seemed a little loose. I started noticing significant tip wear after about a day. What had bothered me even more about these strips is the fact that they are pretty expensive for one-time usage. (Around $10 CAD per pack) Plus, even though the kit offers 8 different nail sizes, it is hard to find the perfect fit. I think that has to do with the fact that I have really small hands, fingers and nails. So most of the sizes were too big for me, which is such a bummer. But these ones are still better than the ones I had from Broadway, which were BEYOND TERRIBLE! The concept and idea of these stickers are great but Sally Hansen has needed improvements if they want this product to be flawless. Please don’t get sucked in to all the cute designs and colours, this product is not worth it.
