It’s spring and with the wonderful warm weather, it’s time to break out the bright colors of our wardrobes, and that includes our nail color!  Right now I’m seeing a big trend in “Street Look” nails.  Lots of bright colors and funky designs.  So much fun to create and the possibilities are endless!  I was given the opportunity by Sally Hansen to create one of these trending looks for the season and I couldn’t wait to get started! But first we needed to find some inspiration…

We also love this Sally Hansen Salon Effects Real nail Polish Strips with the black and white geometric designs.

I grabbed my teenage daughter and we headed over to Walgreens with my new Balance Reward Card.  Look how fun this display is! Love all the bright colors for spring and fabulous ideas right on the display! #IHeartMyNailArt

Walgreens has some great sales going on right now for Sally Hansen products.  Xtreme, Salon Effects, Diamond and Insta-Dri polishes are $1 off, Magnetic and Crackle Polishes are $5.99 and Complete Salon Manicure Polish on sale 2/$10.  All prices good through 5/25.

First we put a base coat of each color on and let dry.  I let my daughter pick out the colors she wanted for her nails.  Here are some more awesome color choices Pop Art and Off The Chain.

Next, we applied the Salon Effects Real Nail Polish Strips making sure we applied them 1/4 the way up the nail bed so the base color showed.  Just follow the easy directions on the package for application.

We then painted thin strips of the same base coat colors on top of the nail polish strips.  We used a thin paint brush and cleaned it in between colors. Two different colors per nail.

And finally we sealed the nail art with Sally Hansen No Chip Top Coat to extend the life of the manicure and prevent chipping.

  1. I love this look, the colors are bold yet perfect for Spring and Summer. The geometric shape print on the Salon Effects look perfect the way you put them on! Great job!

    Thank you Sara! It was fun to do! ~Amy

  3. Great post. I love Sally Hansen! Last time I was at Walmart, they had a display of the Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Fast Dry Nail Color and it was $1.00 less than other stores. This polish has the extra-side professional brush – how wonderful. It makes application, even for me – an accident prone person :) Warmly, Susan

    Thank you Susan! I love the Insta-Dri polish too for the same reason. Well, I love all the Sally Hansen products! ~Amy

  5. I used to love Sally Hansen products until I found out that they tested on animals. :(
    So I went searching for other brands. There are many out there that do a great job without hurting innocent animals. Would you ever consider reviewing those?
