Well, I'll start off by saying, I LOVE THESE! Way to go Essie! These are the one nail applique that has lasted longer than any others. And they have rhinestones. I didn't have very high expectations for these, but every step of the way, I've been pleasantly surprised.
Easy to apply - The directions on the box are very basic.... 3 steps: cleanse, apply, perfect (shape). It took me about 10-15 minutes.
Long lasting- Nail appliques that I've used (Sally Hansen and Kiss Nail Dress) all last a couple of days and either stray the peel at the cuticle or chip at the tip within a day or two. These are started to do that after a week.
The biggest con with these Sleek Sticks and any other nail applique is the price. Most run anywhere form $6 to $15 dollars for roughly 1 (maybe more) applications. A bottle of nail polish would go a lot further. I would definitely recommend these for special occasions if price is a major factor. They're fun, but would get expensive if you used them a lot!
Price: $9.99 at Target
