Nails of the Day: Sally Hansen Love Letter


Sally Hansen Love Letter nailsToday's post is all about the nails. Saturday I had plans to go see a movie and then meet up with some friends for dinner and drinks in the city. But I had spent a lot of my Saturday morning lounging around and doing absolutely nothing except letting time go by. 

So when it was time to get ready I realized that my nails looked like garbage, but I didn't really have time to do the whole process. Luckily, I remembered that I had these awesome Sally Hansen Salon Effects Love Letter nail polish strips (what a mouthful).Sally Hansen Love Letter nail stripsIf you've used nail strips before, then you know how easy they are to apply, and it takes only a few minutes. When I first put these on I wasn't sure I would like them, but after I got dressed it all started to come together.Love Letter Sally Hansen~~~
Almost forgot to talk about Sunday. 
Sunday I went to this "day spa," and I put it in quotes because that's how I would describe it to you if we were talking face to face. You pay for a room that includes a shower, a sauna and a hot tub. It was the weirdest thing. I went because I really needed a sauna and a relaxing hot tub, but I couldn't help feeling like a sketchy sleeze-slut going in there. I think I might have been in a DL brothel. But the sauna was fantastic so I can't complain.
What do you think of these nail strips?
Have you tried Love Letter before or any other salon effects by Sally Hansen?
