Would be 5 stars but “Sally” has gargantuan finger nails and costs a LOT. As much as I LOVE this practice hand, I wish it was closer to the size of most women. Also, the price point isn’t great. You can get practice hands that are close to the same thing if not exactly the same thing only sold under different brand, for much less. Young Nails usually doesn’t take you for your money but I feel like this isn’t a great deal when the competition is just as good for less.
That being said, when I got “Sally” I didn’t know there were others on the market just like her and I love having her. She is a great practice hand. I just don’t like getting comfortable with a certain amount of product with her, only to have to modify it again when taking my practice to a real client. All in all though, practice does make perfect and having “Sally” allows me to hone my skills, and I like that.
Why do we all call this practice hand “Sally”? I don’t know either. The nails are a bit big, but overall this hand is great. The nails pop out and can be easily changed, but can also have the product filed off and the nail used again and again. The fingers move at all the joints, as well as the wrist. It’s a lot easier to work and practice on than those terrible fake plastic fingers.
