Product Review: Sally Hanson Salon Effects Nail Strips

Do you ever come across a product that actually lives up to expectations and you are so excited you share it with everyone you know?  Today I want to share my own personal review of Sally Hanson Salon Effects Nail Strips. Recently I tried out the cheetah print strips....
 Try to focus on the polish, not my creepy hands. By the way, its really hard to take a decent photo of your own hand without it looking weird and kind of like an alien.  Anyway, these strips are so easy to put on.  You pick the size closest to your nail and press it on.  It even comes with a little nail file to file the edges of your nails.  Now if you're kind of cheap, like myself, you could use the left over pieces of strips (and the full unused ones) and give yourself a matching pedicure!  (My feet are even scarier, so I didn't photograph those).  Seriously, my "mani and pedi" was done in about 5 minutes flat.
Now I have acrylic nails, so these babies lasted about two weeks before they started to look worn. There are two slight drawbacks to these strips.  First, they run almost $9.  That's steep for a cheap-o like me.  However, much cheaper than going to a salon.  Also, they are kind of a pain to take off.  Since I have (and do my own) acrylic nails, I use a non-acetone polish remover.  Sheesh, it took forever! But I'm guessing if you use regular remover, they will come off easier.
If you've been looking at these boxes, wondering if you should take a chance on them, I recommend you go for it.  I cant tell you how many compliments I got on these.  Zero dry time makes it pretty appealing as well.
Do you have a product you just love that really lived up to the hype?

PS...I should mention that I was not asked or paid to give this review.  No one at Sally Hanson knows who I am or even cares what I think.  I just took it upon myself to share a great product because frankly, I felt like it.  I love it when someone real tells me a product is good, I feel a lot better about spending my hard earned money then. Enjoy!
