Sally Hansen Nail Polish Strips

 Nail polish strips are all the rage right now and I had to try them to find out what all the fuss is about. The multi-color glitter strips are a great design for parties and will definitely catch people’s attention. The Sally Hansen Nail Strips can be easily found at any pharmacy and are super easy to put on. They come with directions and a whole kit for creating the perfect manicure in the comfort of your own home.

The Hostess Handbook Helpful Tips: These nail polish strips might take you about 30 minutes to do your first couple of times. You definitely need get the hang of it and learn how to best apply them. I also suggest you put a coat of clear nail polish over the top to seal them in. When filing the strips down, start in the middle of the nail so the strip does not rip!
