Sally Hansen Salon Effects Polish Strips in Cross My Heart

Happy Valentine's Day! I may be permanently single, but there's no reason I can't rock a cute heart mani. :)

Aside from unfortunate flashbacks to Playtex bra commercials of the '70s and '80s, I can't find a thing wrong with these Sally Hansen strips. They're thin and flexible, long enough that I can use one strip on two micro-nubbins, and they have now lasted for two full days with only minimal tip wear.

  1. I'd love some application tips if you have any. I'm still afraid to use mine. At $10 a set, I am afraid I'd mess them up and end up wasting the whole kit!

  2. My biggest lesson was to warm up my hands first! I have popsicle paws year-round, and they're worse in the winter. Other than that, just be really patient and check the fit before you peel off the plastic backing. I hope that helps--now go try 'em!
