SWATCH REVIEW: ESSIE SLEEK STICK

IMG_0120

As you know, we are big Essie fan girls – we were so excited when we first saw a preview of their new nail wrap collection at World Mastercard Fashion Week. Essie’s pre-cured, runway-worthy nail wraps promise easy application & lust-worthy tips. The Sleek Stick collection mimics the look of hand-drawn nail art with a three-dimensional texture.

The line includes 12 gorgeous prints:

  • Croc’n Chic – moody mahogany crocodile
  • Sneek-e – silvery serpentine snakeskin
  • So Haute! – gold spiked crimson
  • Love to Love You – 
  • A to Zebra – gloss ebony over matte
  • Don’t Cheetah On Me – wildly luxurious print
  • Embrace the Lace – gilded ivory filigree
  • Steel the Show – hypnotic chrome honeycomb
  • Stickers and Stones – bubbly cabochon angora pewter
  • Over the Moon – pink cabochon pave
  • Glam it on – riveted pearlescent peach
  • Oh my Gold! – golden geometric op-art

Sneek-e: we fell hard for this design, the clear background allows for your favourite colour to pop through. The silver foil snake-skin print is just the right amount of luxe we were looking for. We used Chanel – Noir Rogue as our base shade, our new fav. The blood red was a great subtle touch. Sidenote: we’ve been wearing these for about two days and the amount of comments we have gotten have been OFF THE CHARTS, seriously.IMG_0122

We have tried A LOT of nail wraps, 50%+ don’t make it on the blog. It’s very hard to do them ‘right’ – without the corners peeling, with an easy application & also having a solid colour/style range. We highly recommend you try Essie Sleep Stick even if you’ve tried a few other brands in the past. The precure element to the wrap helps with application, they stick with styles that everyone can love & the fact that some of them have a clear background is a huge plus in our books.

What style of Sleek Stick will you try? Tweet us your thoughts on this new collection from Essie – @PolishYouPretty & @EssieCanada. The Sleek Stick collection is now available at Shopper’s Drug Mart, Walmart & other Essie retailers for $12.00 CAD.

    Thanks so much for this review..I am ‘one of those’ who has tried a lot of nail apps/wraps and had trouble with most all of them – not to mention many look like a bad wallpaper design when I get them on the nail! I have not seen these yet – but then have not been anywhere to shop since before Christmas – I will keep my eyes open for these.
