Sally Hansen Salon Effects French Mani x

Posted on: January 27, 2015 by Yummo Mummo

You know I like to encourage myself to try something new and play, it’s YummoMummo’s motto – “to encourage women to have fun with style”. I picked up  Sally Hansen’s Salon Effects from my local CVS and waited for a good opportunity when my nails were long enough and all the same length. (This is hard to achieve when one is as rough on their hands as I am).
So I had a busy weekend coming up, doing something I love, socializing. A perfect opportunity to bling out my nails.
The kit comes with everything needed – nail file, cuticle stick, 18 nail tips and strips, and detailed instructions. If YummoMummo can do it, so can you.
Sally Hansen Salon Effects. French Mani. It retails for about $10 depending where you buy it from.
The preparation steps involved in the detailed instructions are to use polish remover to remove any old color, file and shape the nails, buff the nails, then to again use polish remover and wash hands. It’s important to prep nails properly so the strips stick well. Also, warm hands/fingers are best. I used my naturally warm thumb to help “hold” down the strip once applied, for about a minute, to help adhere the strip.
Feeling inspired to try something new? I’d love you to send me a photo of your version to [email protected]

  3. Wow these are neat!! I want to try them out!!

  4. These look so great and such a neat twist on a classic French manicure! I don't have too much of a steady hand but I reckon nail polish pros could do this with polish! I'll definitely have a look out for these from Sally Hansen as I'm sure we can get some of this brand in the uk xxxx

    Love your eye makeup in these pics too!!! Gorgeous as always!!! New question for yummomummo?! Any tips for makeup brush (ie blush brush) that doesn't 'shed?? In other words, a brush that doesn't leave those annoying little brush hairs behind?? Thanks yummomummo!!!

    Wow, those go perfectly with your outfit! Personally, I don't use the Salon Effects because I don't have the patients to get them on well enough. But you've done a great job at applying yours. 🙂
