Sally Hansen Salon Effects in "Brattlesnake"

I have one last post for you tonight.  I have been hearing a LOT about Sally Hansen's Salon Effects real nail polish strips, so I HAD to try them.
When I went in to Ulta the other day to get another NYX Jumbo Pencil, I also left with two boxes of Salon Effects.  Tonight, I have for you "Brattlesnake".

Each box contains a file, a cuticle stick, instructions and 16 polish strips divided into two packets.

If you have short nails like I do, you can actually get two uses out of one box by cutting the strips in half.  I would like to mention that if you plan to do this, do NOT open the second packet, as the strips dry out once opened.

The application was incredibly easy and they went on flawlessly.  The instructions are easy to follow and are pretty much mistake proof.

Above swatch is with flash, bottom is without.  I sealed these with China Glaze's Fast Forward Top Coat.

I have to say I absolutely LOVE these.  I can't comment yet on wear, since I have only put them on this evening, but it claims to last up to 10 days.

These were $9.99 at Ulta but I am sure you can find coupons for them or possibly somewhere that sells them a bit cheaper.  I will definitely be buying more of these in the future.

Have you tried Salon Effects?  What do you think of them?
