I received these Essie Nail Stickers in 'A to Zebra' in my July Glossybox. I've nevr been a fan of nail stickers, I've always found them too fiddly and they start to peel of really easily, or they are stubborn and refuse to come off at all!
I was debating as to whether I would actually bother trying them out, but on one boring night at home, I gave in and had a go!
The stickers come in lots of sizes, which is fab as I have really tiny fingers and I normally have to spend a while cutting the sides from nail stickers to make them fit nicely!
After selecting the right sizes for my fingers, I applied the sticker. I found it a little fiddly to start with. The adhesive is really sticky, and I kept sticking it to my hand rather than my nail! Obviously at this point it was far too long...
To get it down to the right size with a flush fit, simply fold over the edge and file in a downwards motion until the excess sticker comes away. It actually was quite easy to do and it did come away easily. I didn't find that any straggly bits were left over which was lovely!
This is what my nails looked like when I was done.
Overall I think they fit quite nicely. Once you get into the flow of things, they become easier to apply.
I don't think the zebra pattern is obvious enough for my liking. It is really subtle, and I like the concept, but I'm not sure this is a design I would pick if I was buying them. I am tempted to take a peek at any other designs they had as I did enjoy using the stickers once I got the hang of it!
I am currently on my third day of wear and I don't have any corners peeling away or any straggling bits, they still look perfect!
Have you used nail stickers before? What's your opinion?
