Tricky, but awesome!

By GooberFace

Comments about Essence French Manicure Tip Guides:

I've noticed that there are a lot of complaints about the stickers pulling off the base coat. What I've learned is that if you put the stickers directly onto your skin (I use the back of my hand) and pull them off a couple of times, then apply them to your nails, you shouldn't have any problems with excessive stickiness and should have great results! That technique has made these sooooo much easier to use!

      I don't know why the bad reviews. I put the strip on the tip of my nails, apply the white polish first, wait till dries, then remove the white strip, then apply my base coat. My nails comes out BEAUTUFUL :) And the price is fabulous :) thankyou Ulta :)

      Peels off Base Coat

      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

          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.

          Exactly What I Needed

                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.
