Check out my fancy nail art! Have you tried Sally Hansen "Salon Effects" nail strips yet? My sister-in-law Kasi swears by them so I thought I should give them a try myself. At about $9 a box they are cheaper than a manicure but more pricey than your traditional nail polish. All you have to do it peal them off the plastic under layer, line them up on your nail, and press them firmly into place with the little tools they provide. They smell and look just like nail polish! Kasi says her's last for two weeks but mine were more like 4-5 days (I think I need some lessons on proper application). Check out all the different patterns and textures here.
