Hump Day Nail Story #1 : Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Polish Strips

Happy hump day lovelies!!!

Hope you are having a great week so far! Hump day simply means we are half way through the week and another day closer to the weekend. :) *countdown begins*

Hump Day Nail Story is a new series on Through Beauty Eyes, in which I will be featuring my "nail of the week" or any new nail polish collections or great products that are worth showing some love. Be sure to tune in every Wednesday for some nail loving goodness. :)

"Peel and apply strips of real, long lasting nail polish in just minutes any time, any place. Dress up your nails with no mess and no hassle - even right before going to bed! Each strip is quick and easy fashion statement for your finger tips"

The star of the first Hump Day Nail Story is none other than SALLY HANSEN SALON EFFECTS HALLOWEEN REAL NAIL POLISH STRIPS

If you are a beauty lover, you are ought to know (or at least are aware of) Sally Hansen's revolutionary Salon Effects Nail Strips with its funky designs, to give you a quick and easy fashion statement for your finger tips.

Each Salon Effects kit comprises of everything you need for fun themed nails - 16 nail polish strips, a cuticle stick, mini file/ buffer and instruction for a quick DIY salon manicure. :) Removal of the nail strips is easy and hassle-free too, simply swipe it with your nail polish remover for an instantly clean state. No fuss at all.

- No mess and no hassle? Definitely. Smudging your half dry nail polish is the last thing you need to worry. You don't have to go through the hassle of using a Q-tip to remove any excess nail polish around your nails too. I used the cuticle stick given to carefully remove any excess nail strips in just seconds. 

- Quick and easy? I do admit, it took me a while to get use to the whole applying technique (with quite a few wastage along the way) but once I got the hang of it, it was as easy as ABC and definitely quick. 

Just a heads up, you're meant to use the layer IN BETWEEN the 2 plastic layers (think: telephone screen protector), rather than peeling it off and applying like a sticker. 

- Ten-day staying power? Unfortunately, mine did not last for that long. It started to chip at approximately 5 days. It could be due to the fact that I was a noob and did not apply it the "right way"but I am not entirely sure. I will try it again and maybe use a top coat after applying them. Will let you guys know if it lasts longer. 

- Exy or affordable? At RRP of $14.95 per kit, it is slightly on the more expensive side, considering you can only use it once. However, if you are one that adores nail arts/ designs but do not have the time to do them weekly, Sally Hansen Salon Effects Real Nail Polish Strips is definitely a better alternative compared to splurging at least $30 each time you feel like a change of design.
