This has to be my favorite Nailene product. I have been buying these since I got into nail polish almost 2 years ago. The pack I'm reviewing today is one Nailene sent me for review, but I already have about 3 of these I personally bought prior because I love them so much. These are french polish guides that are amazing for imperfectly painted gals like myself! I couldn't do any cute funky french manicures without these!
Father's day manicure), half moon, or even nail art designs. I've used these to make curved stripes on my nail as nail art too for my July 4th mani. so you're not limited to using them just for french manicures. These are very easy to use but they are not entirely fool proof you do need to practice some patience with these.
I used these the other day to do a funky french with my Sinful Colors Mint Apple manicure. I go through my typical manicure routine by applying base coat and then X many coats of nail polish (this varies depending on the polish). I then skip the top coat step and let this dry for an hour. This is probably extreme and you maybe able to get away with half an hour, but I do an hour to be on the safe side. You don't want to apply these tip guides on wet nails. It will completely ruin and pull of the polish from your nails! Not good :(! Your nails need to be completely dry. After an hour I apply these on my nail. You can put them as far down or as high up on your nail as you want it's just matter of personal preference.
I then leave the tip guides on and let them dry for 15-20 minutes. This is important too. If you don't let the polish dry it will pull off from the tip guides and ruin your manicure :(.
I hope my instructions didn't sound too complicated. These really are very easy to use you just need to have some patience to let things dry. I always have a pack of these on hand. I especially love these during holiday season when I do lots of colorful Christmas manicures, but they're great for anytime of year. You get a lot of product too. You get 3 sheets of tip guides adding up to 96 guides, so these last you awhile. I definitely recommend this product. It makes my polishing experience so much better because I don't have to worry about trying to perfect my own french manicure that would be a nightmare!
