Review: Sally Hansen Salon Effects

Today is another VoxBox review! Today I'm going to take a look at the Sally Hansen Salon Effects in Laced Up. First up, what comes in the box.  Everything you need is in the box which is great! You have the nail strips, a nail file, and a cuticle pusher.  I really like that, assuming you have clean nails, you can just grab the box and be set to go. 

Without flash:
With flash:
First Impression: LOVE the fact there is zero dry time.  For me, the first nail was not the easiest thing to put on.  I will also admit I am far from...coordinated.  After about three nails I got the hang of it and start to finish both hands took about 15 minutes.  For me, the fit wasn't great.  I am cursed with very straight square shaped nail beds, and the nail strips were more curved.  Luckily it wasn't so much that there was a huge gap at the cuticle, but if you look closely you can see it.  The pattern was nice, but not my favorite for my skin tone, but that is really just personal preference.  I am very picky about nude shades of nail polish.  

Wear: The package says it lasts up to 10 days.  I decided to not baby my nails to to treat them like I usually treat my nails...which is...terrible.  I'm the type of girl who never wears dish gloves when cleaning or doing the dishes so usually nail polish lasts a whole day before I get my first chip.  These lasted halfway to day three, not the 10 days promised, but MUCH longer than nail polish.  I had to remove them after day three because they started to come up around the cuticle...and they got stuck when I was washing my hair. THAT was not fun! 

Overall: I would totally consider these for a special occasion.  The price ($9.99) is a little steep for everyday wear for me.  But so many of the designs are cute and would be a great quick way to add the final touch to a special outfit.  They are also on sale quite often, so it wouldn't be a bad idea to snag one you love and keep it on hand for a special day.  These would also be perfect for travel because you don't have to worry about spills or breakage. 

Note: I received this product complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.
