I had heard that Walgreens had them in stock so the first stop was a location close to my work. After a quick inspection of the Sally Hansen section, I determined they were sold out and left.
Determined, I went to another Walgreens not too far away. I saw a few styles left--mostly the solid colors or the glittered--but their stock was pretty picked-through. I did scope out a set of lace-style wraps and I purchased those, only semi-disappointed that I didn't find the houndstooth ones.
On the way home, I passed a CVS and decided to stop just in case. It was a total jackpot! They had pretty much every style and color! Not sure if I'd like them or not, I only snatched up the one I had been lusting after--the houndstooth!
So what did I think about them?
The application of these strips is extremely quick and easy, especially when compared to nail wraps I've used in the past. The wraps aren't overly sticky and easy enough to lift back up at the beginning of the application process if you're a bit off on the placement.They are also thin enough that I was able to cut off any excess from the sides with my own fingernail. I adore that the strips are double-ended; it makes it a lot easier to find a good fit for your own nails. I also love that these $10 kits come with everything you need to apply the wraps, including a cuticle stick and a nail file. It's amazing how as soon as the process is complete, it really becomes like paint on your nails--it doesn't peel like other wraps I've tried.
I'm going to call these a "must-try" for anyone who likes to do their own nails!
