Get On It! (continued)

Sally Hansen Real Nail Polish Strips 

       THE. BEST. That is all.

Ok, this is why it is the best. As a Shellac user, I now demand certain things from all nail polishes. Bold colours, high shine and most importantly, NO chip. And while Shellac does deliver all of these things plus a whole lot more, the application and removal can be a bit time consuming.

Enter: Sally Hansen Real Nail Polish Strips.

Application time: 5 mins. Simply peel the sticky nail colour off the backing and place on nail bed. File off excess. Done. No dry time, no base or top coat. Easy.

Removal: Not sure, as I’ve had it on for over a week and haven’t had to take it off yet.

No chip, and all the glitz and glam that I love in a nail polish. They are much easier to get your hands on than Minx nail strips- which came out a while ago but only seem to be available at salon supply shops, and last 10 times longer than the nail strips available at Sportsgirl, which were thick and felt like I had stuck sticky-tape on my nails.

     Plain colours available, but I’ve opted for a gold glitter. Amazing.

Available from Priceline for $14.95



Sephora by OPI Nail Polish – Only Gold For Me

Apologies for people who don’t like glitter nail polish, but I am obsessed.

My sister bought this nail polish back from the States last year and as soon as I saw it, I claimed it as my own. I’m sure if she really wanted to use it now she could probably scrape some out of the bottom of the bottle…. Sorry, Laura.

Before I found my Sally Hansen Nail Strips, this polish was my life. I wanted a full on glitter effect, and most glitter nail polishes only leave you with a subtle glitter hit. As a woman on a mission, I painted one coat of this polish on each day for one week until I was left with a golden glitter explosion! Sure, my nails were heavy with polish and possibly a little sticky, but I had the glam nails I wanted. Everyone, get glittery. It’s fun!

Available from Sephora in America. Sorry. They don’t ship.
