Review: Sally Hansen Salon Effects Checkin' it Twice

For as long as they've been available, I've been completely addicted to Sally Hansen Salon Effort nail strips. Despite having the longest name, they actually work and actually have interesting patterns.  In fact, it was me wondering whether I could reproduce some of the patterns myself that got me into nail art in the first place.  Therefore when new patterns come out, I have to buy them.

Checkin' it Twice is a black and silver checker pattern, with the silver being a slightly sparkly metallic.  I like these as they aren't the pattern-printed-on-white that some of the strips are.  While they might have the prettiest patterns, they just don't last as long.  Application was as easy as ever, following my usual steps for applying the strips.  Not a whole lot more else to say, other than I wish I could paint this pattern myself? 






The Verdict:  Yep, this is a cool patterm.  Gives my cuticles a break too, as I don't have to use the acetone around the edges.  It's been about 24 hours wearing them now and they're not showing any signs of wear, but you'd expect that from these strips.
