            I tried it ever after 2days of my nails being completely dry before I put the top coat on. Still took my polish off.

              I don't often write product reviews but I felt compelled to warn others away from this product. You'll get one use out of these guides as each package contains ten of each of the guide shapes. I painted my nails with a base color first, allowed that color to fully dry, and then I used the moon manicure guides to create a glittery half circle effect towards the bottom of my nail at the cuticle bed. The guides went on smoothly, but when I went to remove them after the glittery polish had been applied and had dried, the guides left behind a sticky, bumpy residue. I tried to gently rub the residue off but no luck. I think tried using a small amount of nail polish remover to just remove the top layer of polish that had residue on it. Still no luck. I ended up painting over the areas that had the residue but that resulted in a bumpy, uneven finish. Now instead of the lovely finished product I was expecting, I instead have something that looks like an amateurish attempt at nail art. Very disappointing, especially when you consider that I used a name brand salon polish that cost around $9 per bottle for the base color, so I was didn't want to remove it all the polish and start all over. What a waste of time and good nail polish! Save yourself the aggravation and skip buying this product.

                The glue wasn't very strong so two of them came off while applying the nail polish. Definitely worth it for the price and very easy to use.

                    I bought these on impulse as I was looking for another essence product at Ulta. I normally paint my nails all black, all day - everyday and got excited to use these french tip guides for a little change. I decided to go with an ice color to compliment my black polish. After my nails were dry of the initial color and I added the stickers to add my black polish I waited for it to dry fully and once I peeled the tip guide stickers off THE WHITE POLISH CAME OFF TOO. I was so disappointed that I wasted my time and nail polish to end up having to take it all off and just paint my nails a plain black. This might work if you use have the tip or design be your actual nail bed color - which is quite trendy at the moment. That way you won't risk your nail polish coming off.
