I received a sample of Sally Hansen Big Polish Guards Cuticle Protectors ($5.99 USD) for my honest review. What are they you ask?
“They’re the newest innovation in at-home manicures. Just wrap your cuticles, paint on color and then peel away any mishaps. This means each hand (yes, both) will get the same, flawless results. It’s really that simple. Big Polish Guards Cuticle Protectors give you the freedom to paint your nails at home, mess-free.”
I was super excited to try them! Here’s a close up look:
There are 24 in the box, 4 strips of 6. I guess this is for if you mess up applying one. I decided to paint my nails and use the guards on my right hand and not use them on my left to compare. Here is my hand after I applied the guards:
The guards are fairly thick, so I questioned whether I would get a clean line of polish. I did try to press them down on my cuticles as the instructions said, and this is as close at they would get.
Now, I don’t usually paint my nails like I’m 2, but I thought it would be a great indicator if this worked! LOL!
These came of very easy! Here is the result:
And here are my nails! I think it worked pretty well. I had to clean up my index finger, but besides that, it is pretty even and neat. Here is my other hand:
Yes, it is a bit messy! But the messy cuticles did wear off by morning. The guards took a few minutes to apply, but they did work pretty well. Hmmm…I don’t know if I would by them again, maybe if I had a special occasion to go to.
Have you tried these guards or anything like them? Leave a comment and let me know!
