Sally Hansen Salon Effects- The Coolest Thing to Hit Drugstores Since Penicillin!

Oh. My. Dogs in heaven. I saw the COOLEST thing tonight... Wait. Let me back up.

My husband and I go walking every day. Sometimes we go during daylight hours, sometimes we go at night. But every day we walk, and we often walk at WalMart, because it's large, it's climate-controlled, and I get a buggy to hold on to while I'm walking if I need it, and if I get too fibro'd out I can get a scooter to scoot my way back to the car. While we're there, I look at goodies that interest me.

Tonight we were walking and I found a big Sally Hansen display in the middle of the walkway. I stopped to look, but the polishes didn't really interest me all that much. But my husband had meandered to the other side of the display, where he said, "Oh my. Laynie, honey... you need to see this. You're really going to like this."

I had no idea what he was talking about, but generally if he says that, he's right. He knows me very well. So I walked around to the other side of the display, where I immediately got so excited I lost all ability to speak coherently.

What did I find that was so darned exciting? Lovelies, I found the most exciting thing I've seen in drugstore cosmetics that I've seen in AGES. I found the Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Polish Strips.

Do you see this? Do you see how utterly stupendous these are? Look at those patterns- there are pretty normal neutral colors, there are fluorescent colors, there are glitters, there are glorious patterns the likes of which I've only seen with MINX. The photo above is only a small sampling of the section I saw tonight!

I saw pink camouflage, multicolored multi-size glitter, denim, lace, fishnet... too many to list here! I am absolutely DYING to try these, seriously. I cannot WAIT!! They sell for $8.50 at WalMart. I'm not sure of the price at other locations.

What do you think of these? Are you interested in trying them out?


  1. I heard that one is even a dupe for deborah Lippmann's happy birthday (which will mean no more PITA removal ;) )

    probably more appropriate for an special occasion or if you're on vacation because of the price

  2. I don't know that I would call it a dupe of Happy Birthday, but it's definitely the first thing I thought of when I saw it!

  3. I saw them at cvs but they were all sold out:{ They look great though

  4. LOVE the lace ones! Now I feel like moving to the States! :(
