What are your thoughts about this new line from Essie? Are you a fan of similar products by Sally Hansen, etc.? Unlike Sally Hansen Salon Effects (which are made of real nail polish), these seem to be more along the lines of the Maybelline and Revlon nail stickers, but they're "UV cured" (I don't think I've seen that feature on any other nail sticker type products at the drugstore...have you?).

Do you think you'll give these a whirl? I'm curious how many applications you get per package (I'm assuming one, but I could be wrong).

Thanks so much, Robin, for the great sighting and pics! 


  1. These look fun. The Oh my gold looks beautiful

  2. They're lovely, but I've had much better luck with polish strips rather than stickers, so I'll probably pass.

  3. I'm liking the embrace the lace,and sticker and stones.

  4. Ooh I like Love to Love You..but I agree with Jammies, the SH polish strips work better than stickers in my experience. Maybe I'd try these out if they were on sale..$10.25 is pretty steep!!

  5. I love the sally hansen salon effects, but I might cheat on it to try it out. Only if there's a sale going on.

  6. Pretty designs! I wonder how they compare to the other nail stickers on the market xoxo

  7. The designs looked really modern and chic and some appeared to be 3d'ish but the price is really too steep. And I have never known Essie to go on sale. Oh well they are intriguing though!

  8. Just applied mine and love them. Never used stickers, but as a loyal Essie fan, and chronic nail smudger/chipper I had to try these. 18 come to a pack.

  9. I've used these several times & I absolutely love them. They wear for a long time & even chipped like regular nail polish so they didn't even look like "stickers". Mine lasted almost 10 days but by day 7 or 8 there was noticeable chipping. I would recommend these. Not to mention they are cheaper than getting a manicure. ^__^

  10. I got a few sets at the dollar tree!
