If you follow me on Instagram @Sophieismadeup then you will have spotted these little beauties on there. I did my nails last night and was so happy with the result i posted a few pictures on Instagram. A lot of you loved them and soon lots and lots of questions came flooding in so i thought i would share with you on here what i exactly had on my nails.
It was in fact some nail polish strips from Sally Hansen in Girl Flower!
Yep i'm sorry i have to admit, it was nail strips....really did wish it was my own nail art design lol
That's the great thing about the Sally Hansen Nail Polish Strips, they look and feel exactly like nail polish, they are not your traditional nail wraps!
I picked up 2 designs whilst out in the Philippines as they are so hard to get hold of in the UK and they cost around £7 which i didn't think was bad at all. I got the design you see above and a pink glitter design which i have worn and loved but for some reason didn't blog about..call me crazy!
I am a huge nail art/nail wrap fan ever since my friend Sabrina introduced me to Nailease which you can see reviews of here i have been hooked trying all new designs and wraps from different companies. I have to say Nailease are still amazing but the Sally Hansen have knocked them off first place though!
The Sally Hansen Nail Polish Strips are in fact real nail polish which is indicated in the name ;P As soon as you open the package they smell of nail polish but still have the same look of a wrap..until you put them on your nails. They are a little harder to work with and i still haven't actually got the hang on it yet. They are much thinner and a lot more flimsy so once you have stuck it to the nail it will stay and you can't pull them off to re-position so just keep that in mind. They do not require heat which is a massive bonus, i really hate nail wraps/strips that require heat to apply. You get 16 strips in each box...16?!? why is it such a random number?? That's really annoying but i guess i will never understand it. It also comes with a small nail file, cuticle stick and buffer.
These really are the best nail strips/wraps i have ever used!!! They stay on your nails exactly how you applied them for at least 7-8 days it really is that impressive. You don't have to be so careful with your nails once they are applied, i always felt with other nail wraps i needed to be careful in case they pulled off, this is really not something you have to worry about with these they really are amazing! I am so upset i didn't get more and i know they are going to be a right pain to track down online. I did use a top coat with the above design as it was ever so slightly matte but with the glitter design i didn't and they really did last me over a week!
So there you have it girls the secret to my nail design ;)
