Beauty Blog: Nail-ed It!

If there’s one beauty regime I have trouble with, it’s painting my nails. I don’t have the time, the energy, or the willpower to sit with a bottle of nail polish, painstakingly paint each nail, only to accidentally touch something and ruin the whole hand. SarahAs if painting my nails one color wasn’t hard enough, the trends in nail art suddenly exploded and it was no longer ‘fashionable’ to have your nails only one color—there had to be intricate designs, patterns, themes! What was a girl to do but just stand by the wayside admiring all of those other girls with pretty nails?

Someone in the beauty industry must have shared the same pain I had and decided to take action with Nail Art Strips—nail polish strips that are dry to begin with, can be repositioned after application, and have beautiful designs that could only come with hours of work and lots of money spent at the salon—it was as if my prayers had been answered.

Before beginning work at Grocery Outlet, I was buying the same nail polish strips from CVS for 9.99 or more! I didn’t realize Grocery Outlet was able to buy the strips on closeout and retail them for just $2.99!  This is quite the steal, but thanks to a recent super-duper-exclusive closeout buy from Revlon, we’re going to be selling these Nail Art Strips for ONLY $1.50! Now that’s not just a deal, it’s a “SCORE!” This was a one-time specialty buy from Revlon so stock up while you can!

Another awesome perk about Nail Art Strips: the stinky nail polish smell is SUPER minimal. You could put these on almost anywhere—it takes less than 10 minutes to do!  Because of the zero dry time, you can do your nails in the car on a road trip, on the bus or train during a commute, or right before a night out!

They are fun, easy, and oh so very chic!—and MUCH cheaper than a specialty salon manicure.

TIPS: Use a basecoat to make the strips adhere to your nails better and prevent peeling…you won’t be able to reposition them, but if you’ve played with Nail Art Strips before, you should be fine. Even though a top coat isn’t necessary—I like to add one for some extra shine and protection. Your nail art (with these tips) should last about 2 weeks! And yes—these strips come off with nail polish remover.

It does take a little bit of practice, but they are VERY EASY to apply and take off—plus you’re given several extra strips…just in case you mess up a little.
