Here they are, freshly done on Tuesday night.
I love that it took just a half hour to apply, and I was ready to go -- no drying time. And here they are today, 6 days post-application.
Based on my previous experiences with these, I have a few more days before I'll even start to think about removing them.
The one downside is that they take some elbow grease to get them off with polish remover, but that goes along with their ability to last so long. And they don't leave your nails wrecked once they're removed. SCORE.
I saw some adorable holiday-themed versions at Target in September, but didn't pick any up because, well, it was only SEPTEMBER. I haven't seen them since, sadly.
Each time I use these, I get tons of compliments. In fact, as we left the ER the other night, the nurse who signed us out gushed about how much she loved the strips, too, especially because they withstand the frequent handwashing that goes along with her job.
They run about $9 for a set that's good for one manicure (two if you have short nails and cut the strips in half, but that didn't work so well for me the one time I tried that), but I pay more than that for manicures that last half a day before chipping.
This is by no means a sponsored post -- just me taking an opportunity to tell you about one of my favorite products.
Have you tried them?
