Guess what I found in our local drugstore today. The Essence Studio Nails fashion stickers. I had read about these before but wasn’t really aware of the fact they would be in stores so quickly. Ofcourse I was curious to these stickers because if this really works it can be a quick, non-messy and stylish way of decorating your nails
I bought three different designs of EUR 1,99 each.
Since I figured it was probably going to be a pain to apply (just like all other fullnail stickers I have tried so far) I took the one I liked least: the stripes. Inside the wrapping are 2 small sheets with each containing 7 stickers in different sizes. I personally would have liked if they had focussed more on doing 2 extra stickers in small sizes than the big ones. You got to have real REAL big nails for the last 2 stickers to fit any nail. This is what it looks like:
What I thought would happen happened. It’s really hard to get the right size for your nails. Understandable ofcourse because everyone has different nails. Once you have placed the sticker on your nail it is possible to get it off again to correct yourself if nessecary, that’s nice! I had to cut some edges off on the sides to make the stickers fit better but still got some wrinkles, seems that cannot be avoided (tips are welcome here!!). After some scissorfun this is how it turned out:
To be very honest.. OK it is quick (well…if you have perfect Essence-sized nails that is) and it’s not messy (forget about all the small sticker parts that you had to cut off which are now all over your scissor and hands), and it looks nice, but for me it kinda took away the fun of being creative myself and polishing my nails! Essence claims these stickers stay put for up to 5 days without chipping. I would love to try that out but..I’m not going to keep these on for 5 days haha.
Have you tried these Essence Studio Nails yet? What do you think about them?
Enjoy your day!
