Beauty Review: Essie Sleek Stick Stickers

I have tried a zillion nail stickers and the majority of them have been truly disappointing. They look great for one day, and then they either completely peel off, or rip. It just seems like such a waste of money; a lot of these were VERY expensive.

So that’s why I was hesitant to test out the Essie Sleek Stick Stickers. I kept seeing them everywhere (Target, Amazon, even Dollar Tree), but did I want to spend the money on them? No. Then for my birthday, my sister gave me a few sets and this was my chance to test them out. 


They include one sheet with two sets of 9 different sizes. It also includes, a nail file, and plastic push stick.


Upon initial inspection the stickers looked solid and strong.


It was easy to peel them off the packaging, and when I placed them on my clean nail they took hold right away. I didn’t need to put them under my UV lamp, or do voodoo to get them to stay on the nail. I didn’t even “prep” my nail before application. The sticker stayed where I placed it. No fuss. And even when I made a mistake, I was able to lift the entire thing off and re-position it again without any issues. Es-queeze me? Baking powder? I didn’t know nail stickers were able of such sorcery. But what do you know, their juju is GOOD!

This was my end result:

I did placed a UV topcoat as precaution, but they really didn’t need it.

A week later, my nails were still on fleek! A little battered of course, but they still looked good. Impressed!


As  I am sitting writing this review, I am doing my nails; getting a full two uses out of this one sheet. I played around with the design. What do y’all think?


In my humble opinion, these are some of the best nail stickers out there. They stayed on and looked great, and to be honest, that’s what we all want, right?
