Review: Sally Hansen Salon Effects in Check it Out

Another night, another set of experiments that didn't meet my standards and another fall back to my trusty Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Strips.  I like these as they give me the uniform patterns I like without the potential of smudging them with top coat.  Let's take a look at Check it Out.  Dammit I hate/love the puns. 

So, I've found that the nail strips can be broken down into three types: glitter in clear, tinted base with one colour pattern and full-on printed.  The former two apply nicely and wear reasonably well.  The latter, however, is really prone to wear.  You may have seen the butterfly pattern?  Yeah, that one barely lasts a day.  This, and the fishnet-patterned Misbehaved both last a couple of days each without any signs of wear. The glitter is somewhere in the middle.  The printing on these I usually better too.  

Oh and Rocket the cat was getting in the way so bonus kitty picture!  Scroooolll for moooore.








The Verdict:  These look awesome on.  What I've found interesting with doing my nails every day is that I subconsciously match my outfits to my nails.  Black and white for me today woot woot.

MOAR FLOWERS, NOW SPARKLY

Ok! So you may be feeling a sense of deja vu but WHO CARES SPARKLIES.  I actually did this flower mani before the neon one - I held the the neon glitter under my blacklight and there was no way I could not immediately apply it to my nails. Running The Sparkly Shop just continues to have perks...  And yes, I do have a blacklight bulb that handy.  Anyway, this glitter is just as amazing as the neon, it's RIDICULOUSLY sparkly.  Same thinness, nice and easy to work with.  Let's take a look, shall we?

Ocean and Sand Teeny Tiny Glitter Mermaid Nails!

Hi everybody!  Sorry for neglecting you, life is hard.  I've still been doing nails but taking that extra step to take the proper pictures and edit them and actually write words is just a step too far lately.  To make up for it I did a mega sparkly mermaid mani!  With glitter that clocks in under a mm!  For what's probably very close to a thousand pieces of glitter! YOU STILL LOVE ME RIGHT????
