Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Stickers- 'Frock Star'

Ahh Sally Hansen, how disappointing. This is Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Stickers in 'Frock Star'. 

Okay, here's the deal..I have been saving this product for MONTHS because I thought it was THE BEST thing that has happened to my life thus far.  I remember around Christmas time Selena Gomez tweeted (I know, I'm embarrassed. Don't say anything hahah) this picture of her nails and after much research I've come to believe that its Deborah Lippmann's- Happy Birthday because at this time there really wasn't many polishes that had the multi color hexagonal glitter like this.

Anyways, this was the closest thing I could find to the $18 Lippmann polish so I snatched it up (even though come to think of it $10 is not that good of a deal either).  I wanted to save it for a really special occasion so about two weeks ago Kid Cudi came to play a show at my college and I thought it would be the perfect time to wear it.  Ugh, although the show was AMAZING, these nail stickers were not. As you can see in most of my pictures they were not that sticky, peeling on the sides of the sticker.  Secondly the instructions say that you can just fold the sticker over the nail, crease it a little and then use the file they gave you and just file away the excess. Let me tell you, according to my experience that is so not true.  The stickers ripped and pealed and made the tips of my nails look horrendous.

All in all, unless I win another one of these kits or somebody just wants to give another pattern to me for some odd reason I will not be buying them ever again. EVER. Ugh Sally Hansen, how depressing =(

I have a very specific question, has anybody else tried the 'Frock Star' pattern of these nail stickers? I need to know if I'm just a spaz or do they really just not live up to the hype?


  1. I've seen a review of these, not that specific pattern, but they pretty much came to the same conclusion too :( Shame because they're really pretty!

  2. NailNewbie: It really is a shame, I wanted to like them soo bad! haha

    thank youu olivia!!

  3. If you're looking for a Happy Birthday lookalike, Wet n Wild Fast Dry Party of Five Glitters is supposed to be a pretty close dupe to the Deborah Lippmann Happy Birthday. AND it's only $1.99 at drugstores! Also, I'm glad I didn't buy these when I wanted to back in January!

  4. you know I have that polish amanda and although its a great polish, I think its missing some of the key colors that happy birthday has. In party of 5 I see a lot of green, pink and silver hex glitters and not many of the red, blue, gold, orange etc. that happy birthday has (maybe it's just me though)?

  5. I'm wearing these right now! They worked great for me. Though, I have heard mixed reviews. I would never have bought it for myself though (too expensive for just one mani) I got it from a friend.
