So, I received the Sally Hansen Salon Effects nail polish strips in Animal Instinct from Influenster.com in their Spring Beauty VoxBox and I must say that I am really impressed with this product. I decided to improvise and put the strips on my toes instead of on the fingernails like they were intended for and I must say that I think it turned out pretty good. The strips are easy to use and don't require much skill to apply, plus the instructions are very easy to understand. I can't attest to the staying power just yet because I just applied these yesterday, but so far they are holding up well through my daily activities. I recorded some footage of my actual pedicure using the salon effects strips and I will post the link here to the YouTube video when I am done editing. You will see how I do my multicolored pedicures that I have been doing for over a year now, the only time my toe nails have all been the same color is when I do a French Tip pedicure, otherwise I have been loving using more than one color on my nails.
I do have a designer collection set of salon effect strips in denim skinny jeans that I will also love trying this summer and I saw that Sally Hansen recently released these nail polish strips for the toes in their new pedicure line and I am excited to try that as well.
The main thing I love about these Sally Hansen nail polish strips is that you don't get the harsh chemical smell like you do with regular nail polish and also you can touch your nails right away and they won't smudge. You can apply these nail strips and go on about your day from there, no wait time/drying time involved. I would say give these salon effects nail polish strips a try, they are worth it.
The Sheer Cover Duo Concealer is really lightweight and very smooth to the touch with medium to full coverage. Do not dig your finger or a makeup spatula into this product because you will find that it will create a big dent in your concealer, I made this mistake. I did find that I needed to really build this product up to get the coverage I desired, but the color match seemed to work really well for my summer skin tone. I have the Sheer Cover Duo Concealer in Deep Dark and it is split off into two halves, with one side being a lighter shade and the other is the darker shade. I mixed the two colors together and found that it was almost a perfect shade for my skin tone. I usually apply concealer with my fingers because I like to warm the product up between my fingers before putting it on my face. This product is very smooth and creamy so it is a great under eye concealer to hide dark circles other skin discolorations.
Would I purchase this item? I would, but only as a back up because I need heavier coverage for my scars because my scars are very pigmented, plus it does not offer any SPF protection. You can check out this concealer out at http://www.sheercover.com
