Made with real nail polish (which is 100% better than plastic nail strips), the Santigolden Age Nail Polish Art Strips set comes with two patterns (16 strips each, 8 size choices).

Eye of The Beholder:
This one is a glittery black and silver design with many cartoon-y eyes on it. The strips are surprisingly thin given the fact that they are so glittery. Quality-wise, these are very similar to the Sally Hansen and Incoco nail strips; they are super flexible and stretchy so you won't end up with any creases on the designs. To help the designs last longer, use some top coat over the strips and making sure to seal off the tips.

Serpent Charmer:
This one is a gold glitter printed with black snakes, so cool and exotic, sssssssss! The application is super simple but I did mess up a bit on my ring finger, I ended up pulling too hard and ripped off a tiny piece near the tip of my nail.

Overall:
These are definitely my kind of nail strips. Even though there is a huge selection of real nail polish strips on the market nowadays, I still have yet to see any with designs this unique and hip. Two thumbs up!
