Last week I posted some video previews (which are now unavailable for some reason) of the new Sally Hansen At-Home Salon Insta Gel Manicure Strips (yes, strips!) and Gel Polishes. Today I've got lots more info for you, including where you can purchase these products, so keep reading if you'd like to see the latest gel manicure products to hit the drugstore...

Let's start with the Sally Hansen Salon Insta Gel Strips, which seem to be a completely new innovation (I haven't seen gel strips before, have you?). These strips require an LED light to cure (more on that in a bit), so you can't just buy them, bring them home and have them work without having a LED light. They come in 24 shades including both patterns as well as solid colors.
Here's the kit that's designed to be used with the Insta Gel Nail Strips:

Interesting that some of the Gel Polish shades are also shades in the Complete Salon Manicure line (like Commander in Chic). It's nice that if you have a favorite CSM color, you might also now be able to have it in gel form.

At the bottom of the email I received today, there was this:
As you can see, the full line of Sally Hansen Salon Gel products is now available on the Target website, and these products will also be available at Walgreens starting Monday, 9/23 (not sure if that's an online launch date or an in-store launch date, but I'm sure these products will be available in stores very soon).
What do you think about these new gel manicure products from Sally Hansen? Are you anxious to see them in person? Do you think you'll give them a try? I'd love to hear your thoughts.
