Following my obsession with Sally Hansen Effects Real Nail Polish which is kind of like the DIY alternative to Minx (but in my experience, stays on even better and is a lot more affordable), the peel-and-apply nail strips just came out with their exclusive prints for the holidays and they are just as festive as they are pretty. I nabbed their “Plaid About You” red and black print for myself and adore it!
It took me ten minutes to apply it before heading out to meet my friends for brunch (this is when no-dry time comes in handy!). My friends loved the design, which also happened to match the red lipstick I was rocking that morning — Nars Pure Matte Lipstick in Vesuvio! Thought it was a good way to ring in December and the holiday season…and it unexpectedly re-invigorated the 15-year-old-Nirvana-listening-flannel-obsessed-Shyema. Someone cue Smells like Teen Spirit!
What do you think? The new prints also include Peppermint Twist (red and white candy stripe), Snow Bunny (white with red snowflakes), Prep’s Cool (black and silver argyle), and Winter Funderland (black, silver and blue glitter) and costs $10 for a kit of 16 polish strips, a cuticle stick, and mini file-buffer.
Tip: Use the pointy side of the cuticle stick to evenly shape the ends near your cuticle!! You’ll be a pro in no time. You can pick one up at any drugstore/mass retailers!
