I have been using these strips since they first hit the shelves and I love them. I love being able to have something more than just cool colors on my fingers and toes, now I get cool designs, too. I have been complimented by several people, that I don’t know, because they notice and love them. The dry time is almost nothing and while they are dry after application, they can still tear easily, until they’ve had a chance to harden. I love that I can get all ten toes covered with half a box, if I piece them right. That way I get two applications per box! My only slight negative is that I have not really been able to get more than a week out of them on my fingers, they start to chip at the ends. I can get about a month out of my toes though and that I love!
