It’s time for another beauty tip. It seems like we’ve been talking a lot lately about summer nails and how to store our nail care items. In this video I wanted to tell you guys about a new product that just recently hit the stores shelves at Walmart. It’s called Sally Hansen’s Salon Effects. I recently had the opportunity to try out a sample of these that I received during a recent trip to Walmart’s Home Office. And I must say, I LOVE THEM! I think they are really cool. They come in a variety of different shades and impressive patterns with my favorites being (310) Wild Child & (360) Laced Up (which I’m currently rocking on my toes).
If you’ve followed my blog for any length of time you may already know that I’m a huge Do-It-Yourself fan. Sally Hansen’s Salon Effects appeals to my DIY side because one is able to get a salon-like look at home on a budget. Salon Effects retail for about $8.50 at Walmart which does seem a little steep to me for just one product but in the video (below) I share some tips and tricks on how to make your Salon Effects last a bit longer. On another note if one catches this item on sale paired with a coupon, it could end up being a really good deal. Either way, Salon Effects are significantly more cost effective versus going to a Salon to have the same type of look applied to one’s nails.
Salon Effects: 250 Bling It On; Insta-Dri: 220 Flashy Fuchsia
Salon Effects: 360 Laced Up
Salon Effects for those that may not be familiar are nail polish strips that are applied to the nail that require no dry time and last up to 10 days. Salon Effects are great for pedicures. In fact I’ve had mine done for a little over 2 weeks now and they still look great despite the fact that my nail has actually grown out some since I first applied them. On me, the Salon Effects really do last 10 days in the pedicure department. But today I’m going to show you a manicure look using the Salon Effects and the Insta-Dri nail color. Watch the video below for some tips and tricks on how to apply Salon Effects for a summer manicure.
