MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -
You can "Decorate your nails like a pro," with the Salon Express; if it works of course. The nail art stamping kit's package boasts that it's "Fun, Neat & Easy To Use".
So what's the deal here? It promises to apply fancy designs with nail polish to your nails by simply transferring the nail polish pattern from a design plate to your nails with a rubber stamper. The kit comes with five design plates, each filled with several patterns. The stamper has two sides, one for larger prints and one for smaller.
Rosanna Smith works behind the scenes at WSFA and she is looking forward to stamping some fun prints onto her nails. She checks out the instructions before beginning. She's a bit skeptical though.
"It seems almost too simple. But, maybe it's not going to be too simple," says Rosanna.
The box makes simple out to be four steps. First, apply the paint to the plate. Next, scrape off the excess. Third, use the stamper to grab the image from the plate. Finally, roll the image onto your nail.
Rosanna walks us through the process saying, "What I'll do is polish the design. Alright. Then it says remove the excess polish. Alright. Then it says grab your stamper and put it on there...umm. There's definitely nothing on there."
No paint on the stamper at all! Uh oh. Maybe it's the paint? Or could it be the design on this plate? Maybe it's too much pressure on the scraper?
We try to remedy the problem time and time again. Over and over our results vary, but they are all poor. Not once is Rosanna able to get a useable print on the stamper, let alone any paint on her finger nails. After about a dozen different tactics fail, she gives up.
Rosanna says, "I'm very disappointed that I couldn't get that salon design that they said I was going to get."
Rosanna will need an express salon trip for the nail designs she wants, because our trials show the Salon Express paints a NO for this week's "Does it Work?" test.
