After hearing friends rant about Sally Hansen's Salon Effects, I decided to give them a shot. I am, afterall, a sucker for beauty items. Suprisingly the stickies have lasted all week and have remained in pretty decent shape. Fellow SE user, Michelle W., told me the secret to long-lasting wear is to buff nails really well AND to remove excess moisture with acetone. True dat, shawty. Available at your local drugstore.
