Product Monday: Sephora by OPI Chic Prints Review

Hello Beauties!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and made it through the first day of the week.  My weekend was great.  Most of you may not know but my 25th birthday is this Thursday so I went home to celebrate my birthday with my mom.  We went to see "The Help" last night.  Great movie!

I digress...  I wanted to come to you all with a product I recently tried last week.  From previous posts, you may notice that I love doing my nails.  I think nail prints and colors are FUN and really make an outfit pop.  Well, I'm already a HUGE of Sally Hansen's Nail Effects as you may remember.  [I previously blogged on this item.  Check it out HERE.]  I decided to try Sephora by OPI's version of the already popular ready-to-wear nail strips called Chic Prints.

Leopard Chic Prints - $15
These prints are available at Sephora online and in store.  Although these were more expensive than the Sally Hansen Nail Effects, I decided to give them a whirl when I saw them on my last Sephora run. Here's what I thought:

Pros
  • Durable [They lasted through shampooing, washing dishes, typing, etc.]
  • Unique patterns 
Cons
  • Expensive [These are on average $5 more than Sally Hansen's Nail Effects, which you can get typically on BOGO at a drugstore.]
  • Not Easy to Bend [In order to form these to your fingernail, you must bend and file off the excess.  I found this very hard to do.]

All in all, I don't think I would buy these again for the mere fact that I could get TWO boxes from Sally Hansen's line for the price of one of these.


 
What do you think?  Have you tried them?  Let me know what you think!  As always, God bless you.
