Nail polish is the new lipstick, and if you haven’t been under a rock in the last year you know that creative nail polish art has gone mainstream. Nail product giant Sally Hansen has kept up with the nail art trend and has updated their fun-and-easy nail polish strips line, Salon Effects, to include more patterns like this handwritten love letter polish.
Reminiscent of the cool DIY newsprint nail polish look, these handwritten polish strips combine a DIY modern feel with a hint of old-school paper and ink, but without all the extra steps, paper cuts or consumption.
More swatches of Sally Hansen handwritten Love Letter nail polish strips…
I have gotten a ton of compliments every time I’ve used Sally Hansen nail polish strips, and I especially like their fishnet pattern nail polish strips.
As you can see, these Love Letter nail polish strips have a soft white polish base with black cursive handwriting printed on top. The finish is smooth, the application is nearly foolproof,* and no top coat is necessary! Better yet, these nail polish strips really do last for 10 days (or longer), and perform way better than regular nail polish.
* In this sunlight swatch photo, you can see a small dent in the polish where I accidentally dug a nail into it right after applying the polish, but other than that the manicure looks practically flawless.
Unlike gel nail polish, you do not need to cure these nail polish strips – you just peel, stick, file off the extra material and you’re done, with no drying time. Note: you do get some nail polish odor for the first couple days, since these strips are made from real nail polish and not just printed stickers.
One box of Sally Hansen Salon Effects strips retails for about US$10 at drugstores.
I highly recommend trying these nail polish strips in one of the unique designs that would be hard to replicate on your own – They are totally fun and easy!
