Liquid Palisade comes in a lip-gloss-sized tube with a small brush. You paint it on as a liquid, and it quickly dries to a rubbery-latex film that you simply peel off after painting for a speedy clean-up!
I have actually used this product a few times already, mostly for gradients (like the one in Friday's post) since I love them, but hate the cleanup! When Sarah from Chalkboard Nails posted this gorgeous foil gradient last week and mentioned the tedious clean-up, I knew that would be the perfect test for this!
I started with a base of OPI A Woman's Prague-ative, which you can see swatched here. I then painted the liquid palisade around my nails and let it dry, covering quite a large surface since gradients tend to make a huge mess. After sponging on my gradient with Zoya Ziv, I peeled off the liquid palisade with a pair of tweezers. I finished the clean-up with some acetone and a makeup brush, as per usual, but the small amount that I had to do was nowhere near as much as I would have had to clean up, had I not used the liquid palisade!
There are other uses for liquid palisade too, a few of which you can see in Wacky Laki's post here. I'm interested to see how it works with watermarbling; imagine how awesome it would be if this worked!!
Liquid Palisade currently retails here for $22/bottle; it may seem pricey, but one bottle contains enough product for over 50 manicures.
Honestly, my only problem with this product is that the bottle is super tall and skinny, making it very unstable; I felt like I was going to knock it over every time I dipped the brush in. Uh-oh! Luckily there were no casualties, so you'll definitely be hearing about this again from me! What is your impression of liquid palisade? Have you tried it yet? If not, do you plan to? :)
