Essie Sleek Sticks - Some Like It Haute!





Hello beauties! 

I was a super lucky lady this month and actually managed to get my hands on three of these. That's right, 3 all for nothing, one was in my glossybox and the other two I won in the same competition. I hadn't had the best experience using things like this, I often found they didn't stick right a flip off but I'm delighted to say these worked amazing, Go Essie! 

They couldn't be easier to use, 
- The pack comes with 18 pre-shaped stickers, find one that fits the finger your applying to.
- Place on finger, smooth down so there is no creases
- This is an added tip I'm going to add which made it easier for me, first pull one side down, and file next pull the other side down and file, I just find filing it all at once left me with creases and an uneven finish doing it my way you get nice and close to the nail.
- Pull off excess. 
- Done!

It's really really easy there is no need for heat either which I think is a right pain. They look great they feel great and you get tons of compliments, The three I got are all Some like it Haute! Which I love a classic red backgroud with textured gold and clear(but they look red) studs? or dots? I'm not sure what you would call them. Sadly I can't comment on how long these last because I'm a picker and I picked these off half asleep in bed, but they did stay put for 5+ hours! So I can guarantee they would be perfect for a night out/wedding/event. 

They are expensive at £10+ but they are worth it you can pick up some amazing designs too! I've been looking online and I can only find this set HERE at boots!

Have you tried any nail wraps? which ones are you a fan of?

  1. I got these in the "Latest in Beauty" box and wore them to take part in a dragon race as I felt they looked like scales (and I was too tired to attempt actual nail art) they lasted all day with my hands getting soaked and battered but I too picked them off on the drive home lol xo

  3. I love this design! I find they last longer on toe's than fingers. When I've used them on my feet they have lasted a couple of weeks!

    1. Me too, I never even thought about putting them on my toes, I had a lot left over so next time I might just be able to do both my fingers and toes which would be pretty cool, Thanks for the tip :)

  4. Ooh they look great, lucky you for winning them! I tried some from Home Bargains, I can't remember the brand, and I found them really fiddly. Next time I think I'd go with the more expensive Essie ones :)

    1. I mean, they are a tiny bit fiddly but nothing compared to what I have used before but honestly I think it took me just over 10 minutes to do a whole set!

  7. Omg they look amazing, I promise you I'm not usually one to freak out about nail related things but these look so awesome. I bought some nail stickers a while back but it went so terribly wrong and I couldn't get them on, I just got in a right faff and I've never tried anything like it again but I AM DETERMINED to make it work now :') They look so cool!
