SWATCH REVIEW: ESSIE SLEEK STICK
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.
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.
