I’m a tomboy at heart, I am. But one “girly” thing I enjoy has nice nails. I always have. Every week, I give myself a manicure. It’s “me time,” and I have to come to learn that I deserve it. So when Kelly asked me if I wanted to try Liquid Palisade™ by Kiesque, I was all over it!
If you haven’t heard of it yet, it is an easy peel polish barrier. Think Painter’s Tape for nails! Great for keeping the sides of your fingers polish free. It also makes perfect french manicures and can be used for nail art as well. It comes in three sizes. The original is like the medium sized brush; there is also a thick brush (what I received) and a thin brush.
So how do you use it? It was quite easy. If you’re using it to keep nail polish off the side of your fingers, you simply swipe the Liquid Palisade™ around your fingernail, onto your skin. It goes on light purple, and when dry, turns dark purple. Once it’s dry, paint your nails like normal. Once dry, use tweezers and peel off your Liquid Palisade™. I used mine to get a flawless french mani because I’m obsessed with french mani. So what I did was I painted Liquid Palisade™ across my nail, back to where I wanted my tips to start. (I didn’t do a base coat because I like plain nails, but if you choose to do a base coat, let it DRY BEFORE applying your Liquid Palisade™.) I let it dry and then painted on my nail tip color. You can move your line and adjust it using an orange stick for a perfect strip. Now, the trick here is to pull off your Liquid Palisade™ BEFORE your NAIL TIP COLOR dries. (This only applies when doing a french manicure.) Voila! Easy peasy French manicure. It was SO much easier than those french mani stickers. I did one hand at a time, because like I said when doing a french mani, you don’t want your nail color to dry before you peel off the Liquid Palisade™.
I loved how easy it was to apply and remove. I will be using it from now on. Liquid Palisade™ is a Perfect Stocking Stuffer! If you’d like to give it a try, you find it on their website HERE. It retails for between $14 and $22. You can also find Liquid Palisade™ by Kiesque on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest!
