These strips are freaking awesome! They are like hundreds of multicolored rhinestones on a black background. But they are all soft so you can cut them if you need to shorten the strips. They really give a bold and unique look.
Here is the breakdown of the differences between the Sephora nail strips and Sally Hansen:
Material: Sally Hansen-Real nail polish/Sephora-Plastic
Application: Sally Hansen-Since are real polish they are much thinner so they break easier, and they stick on right away so you need to be exact when you place them on your nail because if you mess up you can't fix it/Sephora-They are more rigid and less fragile when working with them and if you mess up they can peal off so you can fix them
Shaping: Sally Hansen-Once you put them on your nail they are super easy to file off the excess and shape them perfectly yo you nail/Sephora-They are much harder to shape to you nail and it takes some extra time to get it right
Process: Sally Hansen-Place the strips right on out clean and unpolished nail/Sephora-They recommend starting with a base coat
Length: Sally Hansen-Longer, I can easily cut one strip in half to fit on 2 nails and still have excess/Sephora-Shorter, they are JUST long enough to cut in half to fit on 2 nails but some nails there wasn't quite enough
Wear: Sally Hansen-They last on my nails about 7 days with some minor tip wear and chipping before they peal off/Sephora-After 2 days the whole strip came right off my nail and I had to glue them all back on
Removal: Sally Hansen-Come off with nail polish remover and some elbow grease/Sephora-You need to peal them off
Designs: Sally Hansen- They have a lot of patterns, but most of them are pretty easy to recreate yourself/Sephora-The designs are a lot more elaborate and have a lot of 3D looks
Overall they both have their pros and cons and I will continue to buy both of them
Here's what I used:
