6 Brands of Nail Polish Strips to Try

Nail Polish Strips - Fuss-Free Polish

By

Nail polish strips are a fuss-free way to polish your nails without waiting for them to dry. Are they right for you? You won't know until you try.

Nail polish strips get mixed reviews. Some love them, some try them once and never try them again. It's really something that you have to try on your own and judge. On a plus side, if you love nail art, you have many options with nail polish strips.

Here are 6 brands of nail polish strips that are easy to find.

1. Sephora: Nail Patch French Manicure

Sephora has two sets of french manicure nail polish strips to choose from. The classic pink french manicure and the classic beige french manicure. Reviews are mixed. Some felt that they started chipping after only a day or two, and others said they lasted much longer than their regular polish.

2. Sally Hansen: Salon Effects Nail Polish Strips

Sally Hansen's Salon Effects Nail Polish Strips are around $10 and comes with two sets of 8 strips - one for each hand, with extras in case you mess up, apparently. They're advertised as lasting up to 10 days.

They come in lots of different patterns and colors. Check out this awesome review of Sally Hansen's Nail Polish Strips from blog All Lacquered Up, complete with pictures of multiple colors and patters that she tried.

Incoco gives you, by far, the biggest mix of colors, patters and textures of nail polish strips. Pictured here is Golden Lattice, our favorite in the Design Manicure Series, but make sure you check out the color manicure series, (loving City Chic) and French Manicure series.

You might know Nailene for their nail tips you see at the drugstores, but they make a small line of nail polish strips, too. Priced under $7, they are a good budget option if you wanted to try or practice using them before paying double for the Sephora brands.

6. NailWOW: Nail Polish Strips

NailWOW's nail polish strips are definitely for those looking for wild prints as they are all pretty intense, but there are a lot of options from far out there to just a little bit of texture or sparkle. Reviews again are mixed. One reviewer said that they were much more flimsy then some of the other brands of nail polish strips that she had purchased. (And what's up with the computer created images, anyway?)
