Glitter over neon

When my friend Sue came to visit, I had to wear green.  It's a rare sight, I almost never wear green.  Since she also loves glitter and she gave me this Models Own, I thought that there wasn't a better way to show my appreciation.  I forgot how fun it is to do a glitter bomb mani.  Lately, I am not wearing heavy glitter as often, because of the removal.

Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Stickers in Goldwork are a poor quality product

I don't like doing bad reviews, but I'm always honest, and these are awful.  First of all, they are not easy to apply or peel off from the plastic that they come in.  If you guys have read this blog for a while, you know that I have experience with nail strips, from Sally Hansen brand to Incoco.  The SH original ones that come in the small box with the file and the cuticle pusher are ok, but this product is just mediocre.

Trust me, it has nothing to do with the fact that I wore them over my bare nails, because I actually liked this radical look.  They are just lumpy and they don't stretch at all to take the shape of the nails. As a bonus, my thumb fell off after only 30 minutes of wearing them, and I wasn't even doing housework, just driving.  It just didn't adhere.  They just get caught on everything, especially clothes.  I easily took off all of them within the hour, by peeling them, because they were never fully suck to the nails, so I guess that was a plus.  They felt uncomfortable and I didn't want to spend one more second with them.  Sorry Sally Hansen.

Not much really positive to say about them.  The color was good.  They have a texture to them, so if you like texture and have flat nails, you might want to try them.
