Considering that Sally Hansen's nail strips were the brand's biggest seller in 2011, it's no surprise that rival polish companies want in. British brand Models Own announced their own line of nail stickers, and now OPI is launching Pure Lacquer Nail Apps, which, lest the name confuse you, are strips, not apps.

The strips come in creme (pictured) and glossy finishes with patterns like sequins, zebra print, florals, and something called "Geometric Sparkle." Considering how much OPI loves their celebrity collabs, how long before there's a movie tie-in line for these goodies?
