It’s Amor de Lacquer week!!!! All posts will be related to nail polish and nail care!
Welcome to another post of Amor de Lacquer….the series all about nail polish and nail care! Send me your requests, suggestions and ideas to Brittany@ClumpsOfMascara.com.
This is a reader requested product while I have had it for quite some time, I wanted to wait until Amor de Lacquer week to show it off.
First of all….I must say that I love the convenience of these things. I am probably the only person in the world who has a good 4-5 bottles of nail polish in her purse. I also carry polish remover wipes as well. I can’t help it! I like being able to switch up the nail color whenever I can. Nic Sticks makes it easier as they don’t weigh down my purse the way bottles of polish do.
I also like how they are readily available. You can find them at most drugstores and Target stores. The prices vary but I was able to get mine for $8. Yes….I know. I find that is a bit steep for nail polish (considering I never spend more than $5 on mine) but the fabulous packaging made up for it.
It is pretty much the pits. Look at all of those bristles going every which-a-way. They are all different sizes and make for awful application. Here is how the brush looks compared to the average polish brush.
I don’t know what Nic was thinking when he made these sticks. The brush is bulky and an eyesore to say the least. But alas you can not judge a book by its cover. Despite the brush’s wonky look, it did pretty well with the initial application.
Overall, I can deal with Nic Sticks. The formula wasn’t too watery and it only took 2 coats to get a decent color. I don’t know if I’d purchase more considering the brush is a pain to deal with but I like the two that I have now. They seem to have good color selections too!
Have you tried these? Interested or not so much?
