PROS: Easy to use, tons of great designs, great staying power.
CONS: Many do not prefer to have intricate designs on all their nails and, because these are actual nail polish, it is not possible to "save some for later". Once you have opened the vacuum-sealed packet, the clock is ticking and the strips need be used quickly. And I mean, QUICKLY. You have a matter of hours. You can try sealing the leftover strips in saran wrap, but they really do deteriorate quickly. Also, because each strip is equivalent to 6 coats of polish, these are a bit of a pain to get off. But just use the soak-off method, and you'll be fine. Finally, these are VERY pricey at $10 per package. However, check your local discount stores (I have seen these at 5 Below, Big Lots, and Dollar Tree for $1-2), because they are a must-try!
TIP: Two packets of 8 strips are included. If your nails are short, one strip can be cut in half and used on two fingers (i.e. one strip can be used on the pointer fingers of both hands), which means that one box will actually be enough for two manicures (or a mani/pedi). Check YouTube for Salon Effects tutorials that show how to use one box for two manis.
