Essie has a new line of nail stickers out in tons of cool designs. I tried out this amazing red and gold pattern for Christmas.
Unlike Sally Hansen Salon Effects, these do not dry out so you can save your leftovers for touchups or a second mani. While Salon Effects are made with real polish, these are more like thick stickers for your nails. The positive is that they come in some really cool textured designs, plus removal is a breeze (just peel them off). Application is also a bit easier since you just peel them off the cardboard, stick them to your nails, and file away the excess. The major negative is that they can start peeling up off your nails after a day or two (see tipwear on my pointer finger - that happened within 24 hours of application).
These created an absolutely gorgeous mani for Christmas. Doesn't get more festive than this!
