Essie Nail Stickers – “So Haute!”

For Easter my sister and I decided to try these fun looking Essie nail stickers; which also happen to have the most perfect name “so haute!” πŸ˜‰ It was my first time attempting nail stickers and I’m really happy with how they turned out! I figured it would be fun and helpful to share my process with a little ‘nail how to’ tutorial below:

Also, I swear it’s just a coincidence that the colour of my mug and the Essie nail stickers are a perfect match! The nail kit comes with 18 nail stickers in nine different sizes, a nail file, and a cuticle pusher.

I started with the end closest to my cuticles, and pressed down lightly in the middle of the nail. I then slowly pressed each side down. For a few nails, I found it necessary to slightly stretch the stickers to the side of my nail. For the most part they fit well; though there were a few that didn’t completely cover the sides of my nails. Not a big deal though, as it’s only really noticeable if you look up closely.

Once the stickers were on my nails, I cut off the excess sticker length as close to my nail tip as possible. I figure I can be creative and use them as future nail decor – maybe small strips or something. I’ll be sure to let you know what I do with them! Once I cut the stickers, I had to file down the tips of my nails/the stickers. I found it worked best to file my nails with the white side of the nail filer, in a downward motion.

Voila! In no time at all I had haute looking nails that I couldn’t stop staring at! Aren’t the gold spiked crimson dots delightful?! My sister and I also decided they looked like little Easter Eggs – perfect for our dinner festivities!

P.S. I got my ring is from “oh hello friend” at the One Of A Kind Show in Toronto! Unfortunately, they said most of their jewelry is not up on their shop at the moment…but I’m hopeful it will be soon!}

    Love nail stickers! I have used the Sally Hansen ones before. So easy to use and they actually last really well. I will be picking up the Essie ones next time I am at Target. I love the colour of the ones you are wearing!

    They look really good on you. I was hesitant about purchasing, now I’ll have to give them a chance.

      Thanks! They’re definitely worth testing out to see how you like them! As with nail polish, the tips seem to “chip” but overall they’re an easy way to get stellar nail art!

    I was hesitant about buying them but you have changed my mind.
    Thanks!
