Good Tuesday, lovelies! A second post today?? I feel bad I didn’t get yesterday’s post up on time, and I feel like I am getting off track, so yep … two posts today! I am the WORST when it comes to painting my nails. I do not have the coordination in my hands to do a neat and tidy job, which means I have a big clean up job to do afterward. Who has time for all that, really? Well, I suppose I do, but I don’t want to do it haha What that meant was I usually went with nekkid nails. Honestly, that’s not a great look for me. My sausage fingers (thanks RA) look MUCH better with polish. Aside from spending a fortune every week or two for a manicure, what’s a messy polisher to do?
Let me introduce you to latex nail tape!
PUEEN Latex Tape Peel Off Cuticle Guard Skin Barrier Protector Nail Art Liquid Tape 15ml Pink BH000584(<<affiliate link) is a gift from the heavens for messy polishers. You paint it on the skin around the nail before you polish.
It goes on a very light pink and dries to exactly that nail color above haha Once it dries, you can be as messy as you want to be because it DOES NOT penetrate that barrier! Once your polish dries (and cures … that part is very important) you can peel the latex off and your beautiful polish job is revealed!
These pics show why you need to wait until the polish has cured. When I began peeling, the latex peeled the polish up around the edges. It wasn’t tragic, because it was extra polish from being purposely messy. It wore away pretty quickly and my nails looked pretty darn awesome.
This is such a cool product. It is not the product for you if you have a latex allergy, as it is latex. But, if you are allergy free, an uncoordinated polisher and you don’t want to pay for a manicure every week or two, check this product out! It’s super easy to use and it is very effective.
Are you a pro polisher, or clutzy like me? What products do you use to get a beautiful at-home manicure? Lemme know!
