Can you believe how fast this year went by? I think I had a pretty great year here at Midwest Glam. Even with everything that has happened in my personal life I still managed to keep things going. Yet I can’t figure out how I can be caught up and so far behind at the same time. There’s still so much I’d like to post before the year is up. I was hoping to do a special Blogiversary post. I’d like to do a 2017 favorites. I still haven’t done my updated makeup storage post. The new setup in the new place is really nice! And I’ve only been living here for a full 6 months now! I’ll have to make these a priority. Here’s to hoping I can get them done before the year is up.

Today I’m going to talk about this sweet giveaway I won a little over a week ago. I’m really excited because I never win giveaways. I’ve entered enough of them, but over the years this is probably only my second win. It was a collaboration between Kiesque and ittse. I’m going to split this giveaway win up into two posts. Today will focus on the goodies I received from Kiesque.

I received two products from Kiesque. I received their Liquid Palisade Original and French Manicure. This fast-drying liquid protects cuticles from stains during nail polish application. You apply it before you apply your nail polish and simply peel it away afterward for a mess-free manicure. They claim it’s like painter’s tape for your nails. The Original has a thicker brush that keeps your cuticles polish-free. The French Manicure has a thinner brush that helps you create the perfect French tip or custom nail art. It sounds interesting, huh?

First, there are a few things you need to know. I have incredibly short nails. I don’t have a whole lot to work with so I can’t always get fancy with the nail art. Also, I’m pretty bad at painting my nails. I’m pretty good at keeping polish off of my cuticles, but sometimes I leave too much space and my nails end up looking half painted. So I was pretty excited to give these products a try.

  • The instructions suggest applying a generous coat. It will take longer to dry, but they claim it will be easier to remove in one peel. I only had to apply one coat. I’m not sure if it’s just that I have tiny fingernails or what. But I didn’t have any issues removing it.
  • It does take quite a while to dry. Even with a single coat. However, it’s worth the wait.
  • You can easily tell once it’s dry. It changes from a pale pink color to a deeper pink/purple. See my photo for reference. At this point you can shape it however you want. You can push it back further with a manicure stick in case you got too much on your nail.
  • Once you apply your polish, remove the Liquid Palisade. You have to do this while the polish is still wet. I didn’t have any issues and my polish didn’t smear.
  • If you’re going to create a French tip, you have to create a ‘tab’ by applying some of the Liquid Palisade on your finger so that you can easily remove it after polish application.
  • The bottles are very light and flimsy. They do knock over easily. However, I didn’t experience any spilling.
  • For $14.00 a bottle you really don’t get a whole lot of product. It might not be so bad if you can get away with one application per nail. But if you have to apply a few coats you could probably go through a bottle pretty fast.

Overall, I really enjoyed both products. I found them to be very easy to work with. My only issue would have to be the bottles. I wish they were a bit more sturdy. But it’s not enough to keep me from purchasing another bottle once I run out. I’ll just have to be extra careful with the bottles during application.

Have you heard of Liquid Palisade from Kiesque? Is this something you would try out?

  4. I definitely need to invest in that polish barrier. I love painting my nails, I find it rather cathartic but man I can never keep in between the lines hahaha!
