When it comes to nail appliques, few brands can touch Sally Hansen and their Salon Effects Real Nail Polish Strips in terms of ease of application and wear. Being one of a handful of brands to use actual nail polish, the strips are thin and flexible, which means they conform to the nail and leave no ragged edges.
