Beauty and the Beast: Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Strips

Although I’m fairly addicted to getting my Minx done at WAH, I haven’t yet experimented with the DIY nail foil wraps which seem to be appearing everywhere at the moment. I’m pretty cack-handed at DIY-anything, and when WAH is such an A+ experience, why even attempt it, frankly?

Still, my interest was piqued by these Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Strips which I spied on British Beauty Blogger over Christmas.

Reader, I must confess. It was the butterfly ones what did it. IKR? I’m not a butterfly person in the slightest, but something about them on that sweet, white Tippex-y backdrop is really doing it for me.

It may be due in part to the 70s revival I’m so eagerly anticipating this summer, but I can safely say butterflies have never appealed to me before, and I can’t imagine when they will again. Hmm.

Minx don’t do a widely-available butterfly print as far as I’m aware, so I’m eager to give these a go. Alas, there’s only a US launch date at present – but as I may have a small impending trip to America on the cards, perhaps they will be mine sooner than I hoped…
