One of my favorite nail inventions is definitely nail polish strips. They come in various colors, styles and finishes. I have tried various brands and hands down Salon Effects Real Nail Polish Strips has been the best so far.
The styles above are from the Sally Hansen's Collaboration with Canadian Singer-Songwriter Avril Lavigne.

Size each strip to your fingers before you peel off the backing.
Once you peel off the backing use the strips quickly because they will dry up.

Since I'm obsessed with studs, Stud-io Time was my favorite print. The fine details made it look 3D. It looked like I put little silver studs all over my nails. It was definitely a conversation starter.
The number one thing I would suggest is to have patience with these strips. Apply them as close as you can to your cuticle without getting it on your skin.
This picture was taken on day 4. As you can see there is no lifting or discoloration of the strips. Each strip is carefully crafted and I think the long lasting factor due to each strip being thin.
I've tried another brand that was thicker and by day 2 it either lifted or fell off. In other words it was a waste of money.
Overall I am excited I'm very pleased with these strips and excited to try other styles.
