Mini Mani Moo – Mess No More : Liquid Tape 

*Press Sample 

The one big reason I don’t do nail art is because of the cleanup. Thanks to a new concept of liquid tape for manicures, that issue is well tackled. 

The product comes in a lip gloss resembling tube with a doe foot applicator. It very easy to navigate the liquid, and without any practice I could easily apply it very close to the nail. The liquid dries almost instantly to a clear finish. 

I applied a double coat of Maybelline “Walk In The Park”. Once dried I applied Venique Glitter Polish “Selfies With Santa” as a gradient with a makeup sponge. 

I was not worried about neatness, once done I simply rubbed the tape (think glue) with my fingers and pulled away! The manicure shown did not require any acetone cleanup around the nails once I removed the tape, that’s how accurate and precise it works.  





 

OVERALL : The similar product is sold by other companies for a hefty $22 USD for 10ml (Liquid Palisades), the one shared today is priced at $9.90. Sold on amazon or directly via company Website  , it works to keep the polish off where it’s not needed. It eases cleanup (stamping, gradient nails spacing, endless opportunities pretty much) and also works as a peel off glitter base coat. All in all, grab one today, you will be amazed at how easy it makes your life!

OVERALL: My first time trying this brand. Polish color and the holo is amazing. Sadly the formula was too thick and sticky for my liking, made it difficult to work with. Shown are 2 layers.

Dior Nail Polish In 294 Lady From Spring 2015

I usually don’t like neutrals but this one swooned over my heart. Dior Lady is a nude colored polish in grey and pink undertones. Part of the reformulated gel formula, the wear time is very impressive. I have swatched with the Dior Gel Top coat, but the polish has a great glossy cream finish on its own. 2 coats to perfection, this is part of a limited edition collection.

OVERALL: Great formula, lovely color- a must have neutral tone in your collection for those formal wears. Long lasting and chip resistant wear and the always a delight to use the Dior polish brush, wide and rounded while slightly tapered for extreme comfort of application and precision.

Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure In 550 Blue My Mind

Hey friends !
This is just a quick post .. Wanted to share my winter blues 😊
Used the Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Polish to satisfy my urge for blue nail color.. It’s a vibrant cobalt blue. Swatched 2 thick coats. It comes with a wide brush which made it difficult to reach nail sides without smudging over the skin. No matter how much I swipe the brush, it still holds polish that drips so you have to careful and quick to apply else it follows onto the nail. It’s a nice color but I didn’t like the brush.
