Reduce, Reuse, Recycle...Sally Hansen Salon Effects

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.  The three 'R's we all learned about in public school.  I can do the reuse and recycle but the reduce????....I don't think so.

For this manicure I started of with 2 coats of  Rimmel's Lasting finish pro in Stilleto Red.  I love the shape of the brush and the polish goes on so smoothly.  I originally bought this for a bachelorette party last year and am now on my second bottle. I love the shine it keeps. 
For the strips I cut up an old dried out Sally Hansen Salon Effects nail strip in 'Blue Ice'

For once my camera was able to capture the sheen on a nail polish. Unfortuantely it didn't capture the sparkle of the strips.  They were glittering like a Christmas tree :o)


  1. Lovely blog!! Would you like to follow each other on gfc?

  2. You are so crafty! I've been reluctant to use my strips because I hate waste, but if I can keep the extra strips and reuse - I'm in!!!

  3. ;) I buy the strips once I collect enough Optimum points. I'm assuming you have a Shopper's optimum card?????

    1. No I don't - obviously I should get one!! I've only got two packages of these and they were both on sale. I don't think I'd pay full price for them - cheapy mccheapy pants over here :)

    2. Well if you shop at Shoppers Drug Mart than you better go get one!

  4. This is a brilliant way to not waste! Good job :D

  5. So well done - and the mani is gorgeous!


Thank you for any comments. I read each one and love the feedback
