Looking for funky nail polish that will dry instantaneously? Try Sally Hansen’s Salon Effects stick-on nails says Avril-Ann Braganza

Do you like decorative nail art, but don’t have the skill or the patience to do it yourself? Have you tried on salon nails only to find them damaging your real nails? Sally Hansen’s Salon Effect stick-on nails may be the  answer to your nail needs.

It takes a little practice to perfect the art of putting them, but once you get the hang of it, it’s easy. The in-box guide advises that you make sure your nails are clean. A swipe of nail polish remover will ensure that the stick-ons last longer. As long as you prep your nails correctly, they will last for 10 days.

You have to be extremely careful while sticking the nails on and aligning them. They may tear if you try to take them off and realign them. Luckily this kit comes with extra stickers, just in case.
Peel the sticker-like decorative piece off, align it to your nail and smooth it out. Available in one size only, you can cut off the extra bit by filing your nail with the nail file provided in the kit. It looks like you’ve painted them. And you don’t even have to wait for them to dry!

Like normal nail polish, your nail will outgrow your stick-ons and you know it’s time to take it off. Nail polish remover works well and leaves your nails completely undamaged.
With everything you need in one small box, there’s no hassle to carry it while travelling or fear of breaking glass bottles. Available at leading  department stores across India, a set of 16 nail-polish strips cost ₹765.
