SCORE FREE SAMPLES BELOW: First of all, if you know me, you already know that I have been mainly wearing ONLY Sally Hansen‘s Salon Effects Real Nail Polish Strips since they launched last March. With that being said, I was amazed to see a tweet about Sally Hansen‘s new gel polishes and strips! I once had the CND Shellac done but missed my strips too much, and went to soak them off within a week. I had the pleasure of meeting the brand’s nail ambassador Tracylee at last year’s Fashion Week and immediately fell for her sense of style, nail expertise and very kind spirit. I then later bumped into Tracylee while she was doing these incredible hand-painted custom camouflage nails for Dior at Saks Fifth Avenue last year, and knew I was among someone über-talented. Later, I found out Tracylee worked withcelebrities such as Nicki Minaj, Emma Watson and Ashley Greene — among many others, and could understand why.
After: Step 2
Nail expert Tracylee gave me some insight into the new Sally Hansen Salon Gel Strips and Gel Polish. She noted that she could not believe how easy these gel strips were to use, plus the fact that they don’t chip and have no dry-time. How could you not fall in love with them?! They even have pattern names such as Walk the Catwalk, Faux Real, Spot On — with many more fashion-forward and on-trend colors and patterns coming out.
What this concept is offering is an at-home alternative to the gel manicure you’d get in a salon. Professional, high-shine, no dry-time and long-wearing strips and polishes. I loved the mirror shine I received when I had the shellac, and this is no different. You can opt for the full DIY system in the privacy of your own home and purchase the entire Sally Hansen Salon Insta-Gel Strips Starter Kit ($29.99; for the full system which includes the 16V-cured real nail polish appliques in 8 size choices for the perfect fit), Quick Cure Gel Top Coat, Mini LED Light and application accessories) or the Salon Gel Polish Starter Kit ($69.99; for the full system which includes the actual LED Light, application accessories, Acetone Remover, Gel Top Coat, Gel Base Coat, 1 Gel Nail Color in three shades and Cleanser Pads).
