The Easy Way to DIY a Perfect Manicure

You know how taping off the edges makes painting a room so much easier? That’s the idea behind Liquid Palisade, a rubbery coating that works as a barrier against errant nail polish streaks. To use it, you paint a perimeter around each nail with the tiny, pointed brush, polish as usual, then peel off the product - and with it, all the nail polish that would have ended up on your cuticles and skin.



Truthfully, it makes the manicure process take a little longer, but if your skills are as shaky as mine are, it’s a must when DIY-ing dark colors. $22 at liquidpalisade.com.
