Which Nail Appliques Are Worth the Price Tag?

Nail Appliqués have never been hotter but don’t be deceived as not all are created equal. The market is pretty saturated with so many different styles that is easy to be won over by a design only to have it start peeling off within 12 hours of putting them on.

I’ve tried quite a few brands so do you want to see which ones survived the scrutiny? Click after the jump!


I've tried out about 12 different brands but there are so many more out there that I have not gotten to yet. Below are the ones that have passed my test. Care to add to the list of good ones? Let me know in the comments!

SEPHORA BY OPI Trend Tips ($12 @ – shown here in Snake Sparkle.

Sephora-by-OPI-in-Snake-SparkleSEPHORA COLLECTION Nail Bling ($7 @ – shown here in A La Mode, Brocade Parade and Coquette.

Sephora-Collection-Nail-BlingMAYBELLINE NEW YORK Color Show Fashion Prints Nail Stickers ($7.99 @ drugstores nationwide) – shown here in Midnight Lace.

Maybelline-New-York-Nail-Stickers-in-Midnight-LaceThe above brands really tested out well when it came to wearability and longevity. But one that really took the cake overall was SALLY HANSEN’s 14 Day Nail Shield. After 12 days, I had to physically take them off to give my nails a breather. Could it be because they don’t really have any color so they are able to be super thin? Not sure if that is the reason but these were flawless. I’ve read mixed reviews about this product but I have had really great experiences with them so I’m giving them two thumbs up. Available in Sheer Nude, Sheer Blush and Sheer Shell for $7 @ drugstores nationwide.




I feel like the appliques are not worth the price. For around the same price you can buy a bottle of polish and get many more uses out of it. However, sometimes I do like them, regardless. I like the Kiss Nail Dress a lot!


Hi Phyrra - I agree but when I want a design, I like these as I could never do this myself!!
