If you follow any nail design accounts on Instagram, chances are you have seen Liquid Palisade by Kiesque in action. It is a liquid nail tape that allows you to create custom designs that sometimes stamps or stencils don’t allow for.
I chose to do something really simple as I it tested out. I purchased the French Manicure version which has a very thin brush. They also have their original version which has a thicker brush and is often used on the skin around the nail to be the barrier when using stamps or stencils.
I found it pretty easy to use and very forgiving when making a straight line. I used Butter London’s Patent-Gel Tops and Tails for my base and top coats. Julep Brigitte was my first coat. It’s a white, cream finish polish. In picture 2, the purple is the Liquid Palisade. I found this design idea on Pinterest. With the Liquid Palisade in place, I then used butter London in Fiver for the second coat of polish. Using tweezers I pulled off the Liquid Palisade leaving the white to peek through.
Some tips when using the Liquid Palisade:
- It is easier to lift when the Liquid Palisade overlaps onto your skin.
- Pull the Liquid Palisade off right away to create a clean line.
