Salon Express Nail Art Stamping Kit! Hello Lover!

Every time I go to Rite Aid I swing by the As Seen on TV section to see if they have the Salon Express stamping kit and today was my lucky day!

Does anyone remember the episode of Sex in the City where Carrie sees a pair of shoes in a store window, stops in her tracks and says, "Hello Lover!"?  I think that every time I see something I love or have been searching for. On occasion, I have even said it out loud :)



It is sold at Rite Aid for $9.99, but with my rewards card I got mine for $8.99.



I have read that some people got plates in this kit that differ from the photos on the packaging, but mine were the same.  The only thing I am kinda bummed about is the plate with the square all over images.  My nails are not super long, but they seem longer that the design on the plate to I don't know how that one will work out, but we'll see.  Maybe with some finesse I can make it work.  It certainly won't be the first one I try!

I can't wait to get stamping!  I plan on using a light, neutral, or nude color for my first attempt so its not too flashy in case it comes out poorly.  But, I promise to show you my first attempt results either way :)

Stay tuned!

Do you do stamping nail art?

Have you tried this Salon Express Kit?

  1. Heya :) I wonder ho it's going to work out! We don't have Rite Aid aver here, nor anything like it, so I buy all my stamping stuff off eBay. Hi China free shipping :p

  2. I have this kit (the Easter Bunny brought it for me), and I love it. the stamper is so easy to use. The only complaint I have is that the full nail images aren't great for wide nail beds like I have. Some of the patterns, you can stamp sideways or diagonally for the same effect, though.
    Can't wait to read your review :)

    1. Yeah I was really disappointed in the full nail image sizes! I wish they were bigger, but I am still going to try to use them when I next attempt stamping. I wanted to keep it simple with my first attempt :)

  3. I have thought about trying this set, but haven't. It is pretty intriguing, though!

    1. I would go for it! I was really easy to use, and fun! The plates that come with it are ok, but I only see myself using half of the images. But, as far as the stamper system goes, it was great. I just can't wait to get more (better) plates now! There were too many sea life/beach images for my taste.
