Back to nail polish strips. 

Let me just say: I really, truly love Sally Hansen products. 

Now that that is out of the way.  This product was trash.  Hot burning, flaming, smoking trash. 

I wanted so badly to have this argyle pattern on my nails.  But it took FOREVER to apply this particular design.  And maybe it was user error all day.  Perhaps my nails are in the way now that they have grown out and made it more difficult to apply the polish strips. 

But I don’t think so.  The last time I used Sally Hansen strips my nails were even longer.  (Houndstooth design).   The diagonal white line in this design was printed in such a way that the strips kept tearing easily at the point where the line was printed. Sad smile.   ALL BAD!

It took like 40 minutes to apply these suckers.  I COULD HAVE JUST POLISHED A DESIGN BY HAND ON MY NAILS IN THAT AMOUNT OF TIME!  Applying a polish strip is supposed to cut DOWN on manicure time and potential error. 

This application turned out sloppy.  And I was disappointed in the flaws.  But I did still love the design… wore them for three days – flaws and all.

I used them on my toenails too Smile.  That was fun.

From afar, they still looked great!  And maybe that’s all that really mattered anyway.

Sally Hansen–“Gray by Gray”

Blue.  I thought it was blue.  But the name is “Gray”.  so, ok:  Blue-Gray.  Or maybe Dark Gray with a very blue base?

Very creamy.  Opacity on “10”.  The formulation and applicator brush (wide and flat) is similar to the Sally Hansen Insta-Dri colors.  And it dried fairly quickly, so that’s a #win.

I added a few light blue dots just to set off the color.  I think the light blue dots made the gray look even more blue.  lol.  I just can’t give up on the idea that this is blue  – not gray!
