By request from a friend, here's a quick look at my Halloween nails.
My mom treated me to the Sally Hansen Salon Effects Real Nail Polish Strips in Ghoulie Girl. This pattern has rows of alternating orange and white ghosts on a black background. The little ghosts look like the guys from Pacman, which was my absolute favorite Atari game when I was a kid.
Last time I wore these strips, I had much better wear using a separate top coat. Since the patterns look a little matte after they're applied, the top coat also adds much appreciated shine.
Unfortunately, I wore a separate base coat this time, too. Can you see the chip on the tip of my index finger? That happened within the hour of putting these on. I don't have peeling or splitting or anything else going on with that nail to explain immediate chipping, so I think the addition of the base coat affected the strips' wear.
The Lesson Learned - Sally Hansen polish strips work well with top coat, not base coat!
I hope everyone has a safe and Happy Halloween!
