Dollar Tree Sighting: Essie Sleek Sticks for $1

Stop the presses! Essie Sleek Sticks? At Dollar Tree? For $1? Yep.

Many thanks to reader Alma @rosamy13 on Instagram for this one! Alma spotted a whopping 12 DESIGNS at her Dollar Tree this week and shared this pic of some of them:

Essie Sleek Sticks at Dollar Tree
(Retail: around $10 each. Dollar Tree price: $1 each.)

To refresh your memory, when these first debuted at Walgreens back in 2012, they retailed for $10.25 (PROOF) and they're still around that price at most retailers. If you haven't tried these yet, according to Jen at The PolishAholic, the textured designs are easier to apply than the smoother designs. But hey, at this price, why not experiment with both?

Have you spotted these at your local Dollar Tree yet? There are lots of other great makeup and nail products now popping up at Dollar Tree too--you can see my post from a few weeks ago HERE.

Thanks so much, Alma, for the great sighting and pic!


  1. Oh I hope these pop up around here at Dollar Trees because I was eyeing these in stores when they were $10! Excited!!!!

  2. I just went to 8 different Dollar Trees in the past few days and not one sighting of these. :( I always seem to show up too early before they're there or too late after it's all really picked over. I did notice tons and tons of packaged WNW Wild Shine polishes at all of them though. It's gotten me a little confused because they all seem to be shades still sold at Walgreens and Walmart. Not that there's that big of a price difference from each store normally but when Walgreens has them on sale for 69¢ that's a big jump. Anyone know anything about why Dollar Tree has such an overload of these?

    1. Oh yes me too. I'm always too early or too late to the party

    2. These just showed up at my local dollar tree in Oregon, today.
      So excited to use them!!

  3. I hope hope to find these! Dollar Trees locally don't tend to get the good stuff, but at least I will know to look for them at "foreign" Dollar Trees! Thanks for the info G.!!!

  4. This past weekend, I found a milani brown eyeshadow (java bean, I think), green and gold milani crystal eyez and physicians formula flat eyeliner in black raisin. Sorry no pictures.

  5. Made a special trip today and they had 14 designs. Score!!!

  6. Just found these yesterday at a Dollar Tree in Minneapolis
