and the old words are the best of all.

I am not great with nail art. This is largely because I am unable to have painted nails at work. Now that sandal season is upon us, I have been getting a little creative with my toe nails!

After receiving Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Strips in my last LuxeBox, I decided to give these nail strips a try. The pattern is so cute - white with beautiful script - absolutely perfect for a writer like me!


I was hesitant about how well these nail strips would work. They turned out to be incredibly simple. I had no issues whatsoever, and the results look amazing! I would absolutely recommend these nail strips - easy and super cute!

I chose to keep this nail art simple, since I'm still a newbie!

This was my finished look:

Have you tried the Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Strips? What did you think of them?

  10. Wow they look great! I love how you have a simple white polish on all the other toes and just the nail art on the big toe nails :-) Good to hear about these as I can't do nail art either so need something simple that looks good xx

    Yes, peter says denim is an indonesian label. :) that's way you are not familiar. It seems that they sold their jeans at Canada too. But I don't know elsewhere. Maybe Australia.
