While I LOVE the look of polished nails, I rarely get a manicure because, quite frankly, I'm impatient with drying time and they usually chip within a day. The nail sleek sticks from Essie were super simple to attach and file to the top shape of my nail. And they lasted several days-woohoo! Plus I was able to peel them off in about two minutes while watching TV rather than spending time over the sink with polish remover and cotton balls. The collection has multiple choices of patterns and colors from words to sparkles to polka dots. Now I just need more subtle solid color choices to commit to wearing these more often. (Hear that Essie?)

Here's her review:
Essie nail wraps are not only cute and stylish but super convenient! They sure beat the days of waiting for your nails to dry and hoping they don't smudge. I got so many compliments from my girlfriends and they all had have their own set. I'm crazy about all the unique patterns and textures I want to try them all!
Lauren Scharf has a special place in her heart for stickers so the moment she saw the packages she exclaimed, "I'm in!"
These nail decals stand (or stick) above the rest. I absolutely love these designs; they're a bit more eye-catching and versatile than Sally Hansen's nail appliques. The quality is much better too, since these are less likely to chip than the appliques, not to mention a regular nail polish. I'm going with the word on my nails next.

May I pour you a drink? That's what I imagine saying to guests when they arrive at the door for the holidays while wearing this stylish, yet comfortable dress. Just needs some dangly earrings and a big cuff.
Christina Wright's Pick
Essie nail polish, $8 bottle Essie
I am kinda a nail polish fanatic, okay okay, I AM a nail polish fanatic. (There's no "kinda" about it.) I have so many shades and different brands, that I actually have researched buying some sort of modern style nail salon display case for them. Yes, it's that bad! My favorite line of polishes is from Essie. So many amazing colors, and they paint on like a dream! I hope my stocking is filled with these colors from their winter collection. You hear me Santa? I would be such a good girl...with awesome nails of course!
