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.
