Sally Hansen Salon Effects in Blue Ice

Happy Saturday ladies! I hope you are all having a great weekend.
I just wanted to share with you my current mani and a little funny story behind it ;)
So you already know that I really love nail polish strips, and I have reviewed several of them on the blog before and was very happy with them. I personally find the nail polish strips to be a great and easy way to do fast manicures, and I love the fact that they come in various designs and made of real nail polish.


I usually don't like going out with naked nails, and lately I find myself doing everything at the last minute, which sometimes leads to leaving home without nail polish at all (which I hate!). But - since I have a huge stock of Sally Hansen's nail polish strips at home (which I recently purchased online) I just grab one of these sets and apply them later.
The funny thing about this manicure is that I decided to apply it on the go this time. I ended up applying these strips in a low-light bus, which was of course in movemnt on bumpy roads.
I find it funny and eventually I got this perfect looking manicure despite the awkward conditions I applied them in.
I think this is the best thing about these strips and it proves how easy it is to use them, even on the go. Since it wasn't the first time I used these strips, I already knew which strips are a fit for me, so it was a bit easier and quicker, and the result is perfect as you can see.



These strips that I am wearing it this post are called Blue Ice #280, a gorgeous icy-blue toned glitter.
Sally Hansens' Salon Effects sets include a total of 16 real nail polish strips (sealed in two separate packs of 8), they also include a nail file and an orange stick, along with detailed application instructions. The strips are double sides so you can pick the best fit for your nail shape, and they are easily applied the same way that other nail polish strips are.


I took the photos the next day and the strips looked really great! They are shiny and sparkly, and staying in place for the third day now. I really love how easy and fun they are to apply, and this is defiantly my go-to manicure when I am on vacation, or when I want to get a quick (and dry!) manicure when I'm in a hurry, and even on the go! I just love the finished look, and the fact that they have so many great qualities makes me love these nail polish strips even more!
