Embrace the LaceMonday, August 12, 2013
I'm attending a wedding tonight, so I figured this was a perfect time to try out these Essie Sleek Sticks in Embrace the Lace that came in my Summer Luxe Box.
I love the idea of stick-on nail polish. No dry time and instant nail art.
These Sleek Sticks were fairly easy to apply. It came with a mini emery board and a plastic cuticle pusher. I managed to get a perfect (or nearly perfect) sticker fit for all my nails. Although, I did find it a bit more difficult to remove the excess product than other nail strips I've used (i.e. Sally Hansen Nail Strips). These Essie strips felt a bit thicker than others. Perhaps it depends on the design.
Nonetheless, I still do like the look of them. They give my nails a baroque feel. They feel lightweight on the nails, just like how two coats of polish would feel. I'd definitely pick up some more of these if a design caught my eye.
Have you tried nail polish strips before? What's your favourite brand?
Ps, a wedding on a Monday night? Weird, right? Has anyone else attended a wedding on a week night (aside from Friday)? x
