So…I’m totally addicted to those Sally Hansen Nail Effects strips I wrote about a couple of weeks ago. After wearing the fishnet-y “Misbehaving” style for about 12 days, the new growth at the base of my nails was bugging me, so I removed the strips (nail polish remover works just fine!). There was a little wear around the tips, but NO chips whatsoever. I don’t think I’ve ever gotten 12 days out of a manicure before—at least not one that didn’t involve wraps or gel.
This time around, I went with “Glitz Blitz”, which is GOLD and SHIMMERY and GLITTERY and SPARKLY all over and I love love love it. I’d heard that the glittery strips are harder to apply, but I actually found it a little easier since I was able to stretch them to fit perfectly without worrying about distorting a pattern.
I can’t stop looking at my fingers. Here I am relaxing on the sofa this weekend, vegan white Russian in hand (Kahlúa, vodka and soy creamer…YUM)—and see that? I have one gold toe, too. I had a large strip left over after doing my fingernails, and this just seemed like the right place for it.
p.s. If you want to learn how to make glitter texture in Photoshop, Katrina gets into it on Pugly Pixel!
