I tried this out on Friday and although I'm right handed, my left hand turned out a lot better. I will say that after the first time using the product I know what not to do now. Do not look too closely because you will see where I had issues applying. I say for $8 and a 3 step process it totally beats out real minx!!! So what did I actually use you're thinking...
I bet you thought it was Minx... gotcha!!! I used regular ole trusty Sally Hansen. The product is Salon Effects and you actually get a salon effect. The design that I chose was Houndstooth but Walmart has plenty to choose from. I think I won't to try the leopard print, lace, and the glitter options. As I mentioned earlier it was pretty easy to apply. All I did was shaped my nails with the with the file that's provided in the box (the hot pink side). Afterward, I pushed my cuticles back. And next I smoothed my nail surface with the grey side. And swiped my nail with nail polish remover, then applied the houndstooth strip. After applying you shape the remainder polish of with the light pink side. I know you're thinking polish... yes the strips are actual polish. I've only had the polish on for 2 days now and I think the true test of time will happen tonight when I wash my hair.
I can feel a bit of the top portion pulling a bit, but its because I put bigger strips on my teeny nails.
I can't lie I was feeling myself a bit, so I decided to do my toes too, LoL!!!
So I put the houndstooth on my big toe and painted the rest fuchsia. Just in case you're wondering there were extra strips in the box <- I'm not sure how many but I used 2 additional on my toes and gave one to my cousin. All in all you guys should try the product too and let me know what you think.
