Peels off Base Coat

By K

from Indianapolis, Indiana

About Me DIY Nail Artist

Pros

  • Inexpensive

Cons

  • Messy
  • Peels Off Base Coat
  • Unattractive

Best Uses

  • Without Base Coat

Comments about Essence French Manicure Tip Guides:

Even once the base coat is completely dry, these guides peel off whatever they stick to. When used without a base coat, the line they leave is fine. (But if you're doing a french or trying to color block, there's going to be a coat underneath.)

Peeled off my base coat

By Colleen

Pros

    • Messy

    Best Uses

      Comments about Essence French Manicure Tip Guides:

      I painted my nails using a base coat (China Glaze) and 1 coat of a very, very pale pink/neutral (Essie) polish. I let the polish dry and then applied the nail guides and painted white to the tops for a classic french manicure. Once the white polish dried, I removed the strips, and the strips ripped off my base coat and pale pink polish. Pretty disappointing. I guess the only way to use these strips is to not use a base coat first.

            I mani my own nails and love a french style so I bought one of the white paint pens and use these guides for a perfect french mani. It helps if you buy a small, flat, straight tipped brush to dip in remover so you can straighten out any overflow of paint. I never see these in any of the Ulta stores, so I have to order them online.

                these are your basic run of the mill french mani tip guides. they were really cheap so it's not bad for the price. they fit my nail bed opretty good. i'll probably purchase them again.

                          Even if I allow my nails to dry overnight before using this product it still peels up the base coat of polish when removing.
