My sister and I are huge fans of nail stickers. So far we prefer the stickers made by Sally Hanson and the online brand Incoco. What makes these stickers so great is that they come in a vacuum sealed packaging and when you adhere them onto your nails they dry up and harden and last FOREVER it seems. These stickers are a quick and easy manicure without all the fuss.

Essie recently came out with their own line of nail stickers that I have been dying to get a hold of. After searching and searching I finally found a stocked display case at a local CVS. I had 4 styles picked out and ready to purchase. I was willing to splurge because they are so beautiful. I had the sense to check what was underneath the packaging just in case.


Low and behold.....the stickers were sealed in regular old plastic. That means they are essentially just stickers. No matter what the box says...UV sealed yadda yadda yadda, if they are already exposed to air they won't change once you put them on your nails and they won't last for very long at all. I couldn't be more bummed. At over $10 I expected so much more from Essie. :(

This is one of my favorite styles from the Essie sticker collection.
