I now have a sample of Liquid Palisade and although my very first effort, documented here, is very clumsy, it’s really quite something. Once I’ve learned to do it better, and I have to point out that it takes some practice, it’s going to be a very useful tool.

I tried doing swirls on my nails but that didn’t work as well as I thought it would.. tiger stripes did but aren’t good enough to show here, so I just stuck to a duo colour mix and I’ve got it bang on on a couple of nails but not the others.

One perfect, one not…

The Liquid Palisade dries onto the nail where you don’t want polish; you then paint as you’d like it and you can go onto the edge of the set liquid. You then wait til your polish is almost dry and then pick off the Liquid Palisade with tweezers and it comes away in one rubbery sweep. It didn’t break at all and you can nudge it about a bit as it dries to get the correct shaping.

The colours I am using here are Marks & Spencer Limited Collection Polish in Emerald and Sapphire. As I say, it takes practice to get the lines right but once I’ve got it, it’s my French manis revolutionised, I think.
