That's Showbiz Kid!

Just a quick little nail look for you because I absolutely adore it! This is Sally Hansen's Salon Effects Real Nail Polish Strips in Lust-Rous. A dazzling silver and gold glitter (both hex and fine) with an opaque, jet black base. Magical right?! With these babies on, I don't know whether to feel like a show girl or an astro girl!  


I can't help but love these nail polish strips (or 'wraps' as they're often called). I feel like I have more control over the finished look. No polish covered cuticles or patchy spots. Just an absolutely flawless application.

This particular brand I actually liked a little more than others I've tried, because the strips are thinner. I found that this created a more natural look and meant that the ends were much easier to buff off. In fact, I could virtually fold the excess over the tip of my nail and peel it off. I'll have to see whether these last the full 10 days they claim to, but I'm really hoping they pull through. There are so many beautiful designs in the Sally Hansen range, and I'm excited to give some of the others a whirl.

Sparkle Sparkle!

  1. I have never used these, but have always been tempted to. Let me know how long they last! How long have other ones lasted for you in the past?
    They look super pretty. I wanted to try the lace ones

    1. Oh you should! They're a novelty if nothing else.

      Yeah I thought the lace ones were cute too. Oooh - and the Aztec Print!

      I've only ever tried a couple of the Kiss Nail Dress ones before. They lasted a full week with only a few minor chips. I was pretty happy with them really. I'll let you know how these ones fair.

  2. I haven't seen strips with such a cool print anywhere! If you wouldn't have said that I'd say you added a Deborah Lippmann glitter polish on top ha ha! x
