Fur-Ocious Vocals

Sally Hansen's Salon Effects Nail Polish Strips ... $8.99
In with this fun print!!
Super easy to apply, these nail polish stickers went on smoothly and quickly. Total manicure time took about 20 minutes, although I am a newbie at this. I was never interested in purchasing these strips because a) the price is a little steep in my opinion, and b) I never found a print that I adored enough, or couldn't re-create with polishes I already own.
I was at Walgreens last night and the box was whispering at me from a distance. Flashes of my current fave color and current animal print of choice sealed the deal on the purchase. This style is called Fur-ocious Vocals and is supposed to last up to 10 days. I applied a top coat to add a little extra protection, as I have had friends say this little trick helps the wearability last longer.
The kit comes with everything you need to accomplish your designer manicure, including easy-to-follow instructions. Coupons circulate every now and then and are definitely recommended to help with the $8 to $9 price tag.
Have you tried Sally Hansen's Salon Effects Polish Strips?

I tried these for the first time this weekend as well. I did the regular leopard print design (gold and brown version). It wasn't so easy to apply for me. I didn't do a top coat and the edges are already starting to wear a bit. A top coat is probably a good idea! Overall, I like the look, but in some places, the sticker folded over on itself and left a thick bump on my nail. I probably just need more practice at applying them. But, like you, they are a bit pricey and I can definitely recreate this look with polish. I do like the blue you chose, though!

I've used these before & the B&W floral I used lasted almost 3 weeks. I did a top coat a couple of times over that period
