I am terrible at painting my nails. I always have been. I practice a lot and I never get better. Now that my nails are really short again (I'm trying to practice the mandolin faithfully), it's harder than ever to paint my nails my beloved dark colors.
I saw this Liquid Palisade Peel-Off Nail Polish Barrier on the interwebs a few weeks ago and was totally intrigued. Here is how it works. You apply it to your cuticles and anywhere you don't want the polish to go. You then paint your nails. Once your nails are dry, you peel off the polish barrier and you have perfect nails. According to the instructions, you can use this to also create all kinds of great designs on your nails. Think of it as painters tape, but for your nails.
All in all, this stuff works, but you have to have patience. And you are going to need a better brush. It's kind of a lot of work for $22. But it does work as a cuticle barrier. And if you love your Liquid Leather and Russian Navy they way I do, you'll take all of the help you can get.
I bought this.
