I am, as a rule, lazy as crap. If there is a shortcut, I'm going to take it. Sometimes, the shortcut is even better than the long way around.
I suck at painting nails, and I'm way too cheap to get a weekly . . . or monthly . . . manicure, so when nail stickers came out, I was all in. Sally Hansen was the first brand to popularize the printed, peel off/stick on nail polishes, and though they were kind of expensive ($8 and up, depending on the brand), they can last a couple of weeks if applied and maintained properly. Well worth it!
This is the first time I've used the Essie Sleek Stick nail applique, and I love it! They have a cool raised texture, and seem to be very well adhered to my fingernail.
