Nail Polish of the Week: Laced Up

So I finally got around to trying Sally Hansen Salon Effects Real Nail Polish Strips. I heard a lot of good things about these, many of the girls in my pattern making class had tried them and loved them.  I wasn't sure at first because they cost $10 for a set and I could buy a new nail color for $8. But you can get some pretty cool designs that you wouldn't be able to achieve with polish, so thats where I decided to go ahead and get some polish strips. 

 The stickers took me a few tries to get used to before getting the hang of it, I probably should have watched the video on the Sally Hansen website. I even decided to time myself, I think I ended up taking about 30 minutes to put them on. I heard other people only took them like 5 minutes.  None the less, they were still a lot quicker than when I paint my nails. 

The nails lasted me about 6 days, on the last day I had my interview for my internship, so I was plenty nervous and started picking at them. They probably would have lasted a little while longer had I not gotten nervous. 

I would probably do these again, but I would only do the prints, I wouldn't pay for the solid colored ones. 


After a couple of weeks of waiting, I got some really awesome news Friday night! I was offered an internship with a high end designer in New York this summer! I am super excited and cannot wait to move up to NYC for the summer and be able to blog from  New York all summer long! 
The family got me my fav flowers.
