I was thrilled when I was approached by Kiesque. They asked if I wanted to test their Liquid Palisade, and I happily accepted.
Liquid Palisade comes in two versions one with a thick brush with the description: "Liquid Palisade - Easy Peel Polish Barrier is likened to painter's tape for your nails. The thick brush tip is designed for easier product coverage on your cuticles and around your nail. Protect before you polish for a mess-free-manicure or pedicure."
Or a thin brush with the description: "Liquid Palisade French, is likened to painter's tape for your nails. The fine brush tip is designed for accuracy and precision when creating a French tip manicure or custom DIY nail art designs. Apply before you polish and simply peel away for a salon-perfect effect."
See the really good instruction videos right HERE.
Lets first have a look at the thick brush...
The finished result after I removed the Liquid Palisade.
Liquid Palisade French Manicure has a striper like brush, as I showed you on the brush comparison photo. As French Manicures do not look good on me, I decided to try to use it to create random freehand stripe patterns.Over my base coat I added a coat of the well pigmented Cupcake Polish Folies Bergere, see swatches HERE and let it dry completely. Starting on the skin I painted my random pattern and let Liquid Palisade dry completely.
Then I added a coat of the perfect one-coater black Purrfect Pawlish Pitch Black, see swatches HERE, one nail at a time immediately removing the Liquid Palisade.
But I used a black liner to correct the small mishaps that gave me, because the tweezers dropped the Liquid Palisade back on the nail, no biggie tho – just something I definitely will do differently in the future.
I could have made the lines even more crisp, but I wanted to show an "as is" result.
Finally I top coated with Seche Vite, and I thought it was quite fun!
