Product Review: Sally Hansen Salon Effects


So I finally tried salon effects! A fellow fashion mommy friend of mine, Erin Kostner, suggested that I try these over a month ago and I've been putting it off. Honestly it seemed out of my level of capability! ;) Plus it's $9.99 and I think that's a lot for 1 round of nail polish.
Forward one month later when my mother-in-law came over to help with the kiddos and brought me these cute jean looking ones! SCORE! (and super thoughtful!)
Here's what I came out with:


LOVE these! I'm not sure how long they last, but they look super cute! They were not as hard as I thought they would be to apply. I think from start to finish it took me 10 mins. And since there is no drying it was right back into mommy duties! ;) All and all, I think it's worth the 10 bucks! Plus I still have a few left over and if I get the jean ones again or want to play around with color mixing I have some already on hand!
Run out and get these ladies, so fun!

Update: They lasted 5 days. I had chips on my pointer finger and thumbs, so I used my extra to re-do those 4 nails and I got another few days out of them. Definitely worth it!

They look really good, love the high gloss finish. I've been putting off buying them too. You sold me though and I'm going to hit my local Rite Aid to purchase some :)

I am new to your blog. Found you through the stylish housewife & just bought like 3 things from your "shop my closet" ! Maybe my new addiction.

I'm fairly new to the blogging world anyway. Just a few weeks old :)

WOW!!! So fun! AND different from regular old nail polish! Great find!

A friend of mine was telling me about these (she has the zebra) ~ SO cute! Target has an online coupon right now for these, too :)

Those are cute! They look better on you than they look in the picture on the package actually. I might have to try that sometime!

I bet they'd last even longer if you used a fast drying topcoat. (Yes, it's another step, but if you've got the extra couple minutes, may as well!)
