Some lovin' - Sally Hansen Salon Effects - Love Letter

I don't often wear the Sally Hansen Salon Effects nail sticker things, but I always seem to enjoy it when I do. I saw this new pattern at the drugstore (on sale, mind you - these things are pricey) and picked it up. It's called Love Letter.

I wish they made more neutral patterns. When I choose to wear these I want them on for a while, and some of the crazy colour patterns just don't go with everything. Heck, they just don't go with my life. Maybe their target audience is younger though, so I might be way off base! But I do find that they wear incredibly well and I'm consistently impressed by this product! I got quite a few compliments on this pattern, although one girl seemed extremely disappointed that I hadn't drawn on the words by hand...

Have you tried any nail stickers lately?

Do you have a topcoat on over it? I'm always temped to do that, but I don't because I'm afraid it will ruin the decals I just spent 30 minutes applying. Do you think it helps with the wear time?

This one caught my eye in the store. It's such a pretty, delicate pattern, but I had to leave it. I find the ones with white backgrounds are a bit harder to manage. They just feel a little more bulky than the ones on colored or metallic backgrounds, and I can never get them quite right.

I rarely wear them on my hands, but I LOVE them for pedis, especially in the summer. They last for weeks, and the some of the multicolored ones coordinate with tons of different polishes for manis. I actually have "Girl Flower" on my toes right now, with a whole line up of pastels (from the Essie and China Glaze spring collections) to use for manis over the next week or two.

Jacqui said...

This is SO AWESOME! So subtle and pretty and vintagey and lovely. I've never been all that tempted by the SH Effects but I think I'm going to have to try this one out. Love it =)

I wore some last week! Sally Hansen Salon Effects are my favorite out of all of the products like these. I always eye this one, but the price tag keeps me at bay!

I like to bring some polish removal wipes and some of the Salon Effects strips with me on longer vacations - much less worry about getting them through security than a bottle of polish. I got engaged on my last trip (yaaay!), and happened to be wearing the Mod About You print when I took 5 billion pictures of the ring. When I posted the pictures to Facebook, I think I got more comments on my nails than on the ring.

I have had great luck with the Sally Hansen strips and I've had my eye on this pattern for a while. After seeing your pictures, I know I need this one!

@Grace - I did put topcoat over it - I always do. I think it protects it more and I love the super shiny finish. (And PS - I love Girl Flower on my toes!)

@Niki - I think it's new? (I'm not sure.) I hope it's permanent!

@tata-nadaver - kisses to you too!

@elenaeris - I thought it was pretty unique too!

@Jacqui - I say give it a shot! These are really quite convenient!

@Polish and Charms - Ugh yeah the price is far too high. I will ONLY buy these on sale.

@Shorty - That is a pretty smart vacation tactic! Congratulations on your engagement! I'm sure your nails AND the ring were spectacular :) :) :)

@Jammies - I think you should definitely get it - probably my fav pattern from them yet!

This one I REALLY like and will look for it. What turns me off to a lot of the stick on polish film, is when you get them on, they are too cookie cutter perfect. Of late, I have seen a couple brands that are not the wallpaper same design repeated perfectly. This one falls in that category. Plus I like the design, meaning behind it. Looks just great. Thanks for showing it to us.

I really love this. A friend of mine who visited last week from the US had some gold glittery ones on and I was really impressed at how well they lasted. I may see if I can find some over here, I'd like to try them!

I love these- they last forever. Anytime I'm travelling I like to put these on; I rarely have to worry about chipping. And I always cover them with a topcoat, too. They look shinier, and just feel more "protected", if that makes sense.

Lindsey R said...

That's really nice! I've never tried nail stickers before, but I'm tempted with this set!

kittytokaren said...

@beachgal - Ugh yeah I hate when each one is the identical pattern. I'm glad you like this one!

@ilexica - oooo I'd love some gold glitter ones for my toes!!

@The Lacquer Tracker - Definitely makes sense! I prefer them with topcoat as well :)

@Lindsey R - Give 'em a shot! If anything, they are handy for vacation like The Lacquer Tracker said!

I had on one of these when I was traveling! They totally aren't in easy neutral colors but they can take a good beating for two weeks while one traipses across Central America.

I do wish we could go grab coffee or something, we'd have so much random / polishy stuff to catch up on.
