As promised, I did try out the Essie nail stickers this weekend. They are a really nice colour, and definitely added something to my going-out outfit this weekend.
But how easy were they to do?
Well I started by taking out everything from the packet and reading the (very short!) instructions.
Step 1: choose the right sized sticker.
Now here I had some issues. My fingers are very small and none of the stickers were a perfect fit.
Step 2: stick on nail. Ok, easy enough! The first couple of nails creased up quite a bit before I got the hang of how to smooth them down.
Step 3: fold over the ends and file off the excess. Again, this was a lot easier than I had anticipated. I didn't fold them completely over as my nails are a bit small to do this easily but the filing worked anyway.
So my overall verdict:
Timing: 9/10 - doing nail stickers is so quick! I was done in about 20 minutes, and you don't need to include drying time.
Finish: 6/10 - the stickers were too big on a couple of my nails, so I should've cut them before putting them on. I do think it would be good if Essie did different sizes because I don't believe I'm the only one with small hands!
Difficulty: 8/10 - I was surprised at how easy these were to do! I got better with practice and even the left hand wasn't hard.
One other observation: don't wash your hair after applying the stickers! Water makes them loose, and they will peel off. Not so long lasting after all..
