The device also features standard options like GPS, microSD card support, Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi, and it also has an FM radio on board. Reproduction in whole or in part or in any form or medium without written permission is prohibited! I found masking fluid on Amazon and saw it was also called liquid frisket (which is a fun word to type and say out loud). It also takes a while (and uses a lot of product) to cover a whole fingertip for techniques like a water marble. However, I've seen tried a variety of options for my own manicures, so I thought I'd do a roundup of them for you guys here, comparing things like price, ease of use, and effectiveness. I didn't intend for this to turn into a liquid latex sales pitch, but I guess that level of enthusiasm is where I'm right now as far as nail tape solutions go.
But overall, if you don't have a latex allergy, I think this is truly the perfect solution. Anyone who's dabbled in nail art knows what a mess it can be (helloooo, water marbles and splatter manicures), so tools that help cut down on cleanup time are invaluable.
I do think it's probably worth that, given the time you can save, but for someone who needs to use liquid tape options regularly, the cost can add up. There are some great reviews out there that detail the myriad uses for it, so I won't get into those here, but as liquid nail tape, it's just about perfect. Liquid Palisade is a super popular product right now, and I completely understand why—it's fantastic!
I'm already a slow enough nail artist—I'll take any help I can get to be more efficient! The downsides are few: as the photo above shows, polish sometimes doesn't stick to the latex as well as it does to other substances, so you can get little bits that hang on around the edges after you remove it. It didn't even occur to me to look for actual liquid latex until Halloween time rolled around again, because I'm just that dense, but then I saw some ladies on Instagram buying & using it and I realized that yes, as always, Amazon had me covered. It goes on easily, dries fast, peels off cleanly, can be used in water, and comes with a fine-tipped little brush that makes it easy to cover all the tricky little spaces around your nails. My one major issue with Liquid Palisade is the price: $22 for a small bottle about the size of a mascara tube is pretty steep! I'll be discussing four liquid nail tape options in this post: white glue (also called Elmer's Glue, school glue, or PVA glue, depending on where you live), OPI Glitter Off, Liquid Palisade, and liquid latex. I don't see myself using the glue or OPI Glitter Off much anymore, but it's nice to have those on hand in case I find myself doing nail art on someone who can't use latex. This kind of glue is also water soluble, so you can't use it for water marbling, and it can be tricky to peel off in one piece if your application isn't thick enough or if you have a ragged cuticle here and there.
Each option definitely has its own pros and cons, so I hope this helps you find a solution that works best for you. If there's one you'd like to see reviewed, or if you make one you'd like to see reviewed, please hit me up! These are the four options I've seen used most often in the nail art world, but I'd love to hear about others out there—maybe this post can have a part two someday! I'll definitely keep my Liquid Palisade around for fine detail applications around my nails, and for using as a mask on actual manicures to create designs, etc., but I'll be sticking with the regular latex for everything else.
At $11 for the pot of latex (that will last for ages), plus a few dollars for empty polish bottles and a set of small funnels, I was able to put together several bottles of the perfect liquid nail tape—plenty for me, and some to share, too.
OPI's Glitter Off peel-able base coat is marketed for use under glitter polish to make the glitter peel off easily when you're ready to remove it. I have come across another product called masking fluid but it may not be that different from liquid latex. Other minor issues with Liquid Palisade include the availability (through their site, on Amazon, and at a few other third-party sites, so you can probably find it just fine, but I had to wait for a restock when I ordered mine), and fact that it's unusable for those with latex allergies. Liquid latex has all the benefits of Liquid Palisade, plus it's cheaper and you can paint it on with whatever size nail art brush you want for different levels of coverage. But other than those complaints (which really are pretty small, in the grand scheme of things), glue works well and I was happy with it for a long time. But I still like this option a lot and felt like the time saved, both during application and polish cleanup, was worth the money for me. When I got my Liquid Palisade, I could tell right away that it was at least partly made of liquid latex—that scent is really specific and easy to identify.
I also looked around at some data sheets for masking fluid and noticed mentions of ammonia and avoiding skin contact, so that gives me pause as well. I tried Glitter Off for that purpose and didn't have a lot of luck (glitter defies all odds and cements itself ruthlessly to my nails no matter what), but it does work well as a liquid tape option.
I don't know who first came up with the idea of liquid nail tape or what product started it all, so unfortunately, I can't give proper credit where it's due.
