At $8.50/ box, they are not cheap. But I was particularly captivated by the houndstooth design and I also liked the idea that they could last up to 3 weeks. The box includes 16 strips and I was hopeful that I would be able to stretch these into multiple uses. In the box there are 2 packs of 8 strips, in various sizes. You also get a cuticle stick, a buffer, and instructions.
Application was easy: Clean nails with polish remover, buff, and apply.
The strips are generously sized, and I was able to trim them to cover 2-3 nails from just one strip. The strips themselves are thin, flexible, and surprisingly sturdy. After doing both feet I still had 4 strips left from one pack, which means I can reasonably expect to get 4 uses out of each box.
Please, no criticizing my Flintstone feet.
I LOVE the way these look. I think the houndstooth is so fun for Fall. I don't think I would try a solid color, but some of the patterns are a neat way to change things up. You could even do just one toe & paint the others. With a pedicure running $20-$30 + extra for any fancy design, I think these are a good value. I'll add a postscript once I've had them on for a few days, but for now, I am very happy with the results. FYI, I did add a topcoat.
Would you try these? Do you think they are worth the $8.50 price tag? Update: There are 8 strips in each pack of nails strips (2 packs per box). Once the packs are opened, the strips WILL dry out, rendering them unusable. I don't know how long this takes, but I tried to apply nail strips that had been open for about 6 weeks, and they would not stick. So, I say share them or do your fingers and toes at the same time.
