  1. I really need one of those big honking tape dispensers because it's just too hard to get the tape off of itself when you need some. Thanks for sharing your knowledge!

  2. Thanks for showing this and exactly how to wrap the finger. If l ever do any messy nail art , this would work great and you don't have to wait for latex to dry. And it covers pretty well for straight pieces of tape!!!

  3. I did the tape method!! I didn’t mind the extra fussing and it worked pretty well.
    I just tried a new brand from my local drug store- it’s called L.B.K. The formula was so amazing I wanted to tell you about it. They put a clever little lever in the lid so you can see how it looks on your finger, I love it! And they’re vegan & cruelty free in case that’s preferable for anyone.
    I’m wearing Perfect Peyton right now. It’s a bold choice for me but it’s beautiful 💙

  4. Awesome 👍 I've been using cuticle balm prior to doing the stamping/artwork. I love how easy the clean up is. Thank you for sharing 😊 💜

  5. I remember these days. I finally got me the big jar from Amazon. I will put it in my same bottle of liquid latex when I use it all. So nice to show the new to nail art how we did it in the stone age. LOL love ya girl. Hugs!!

  6. This is what we did in "The before time" hahaha. I still do tape for watermarble, just faster. I also used Elmer's glue mixed with just a bit of water, and I still use it! TFS!!♡♡♡

  7. I might try to water marble with that. I haven't ever tried it because clean up scares me and just sucks the fun out of it. If it is gonna cause anxiety, I won't do it and I am missing out on a lot of nail art because of it. Thanks for sharing this tip. I have seen a lady do something like this with the liquid latex and oh man, It looks hard to get off without dinging your nail art.

  8. That is so cool! I have a teeny bottle of liquid latex that I'm using sparedly cuz i didnt want to run out but of course its gonna run out at some point! TFS this alternative!

  9. I would love to see a video on your must have products. The items that you would consider your “holy grail” nail products. I absolutely love your videos keep up the great work!!!!

  10. Before latex i used chap stick on my fingers for water marble. If you keep the chap stick hardly out of the top of the tube you can get it very close to the nail and most of the polish will wipe off your skin with paper towel/tissue.

  11. One of my kids 'wasn't me' broke my tape dispenser =(. I seriously need 'wasn't me' DOB and SSN so I can claim them on my taxes. TFS I've never seen anyone put the tape on like that. I'm allergic to latex so I've never done anything that would require tape or latex.

  12. Thank you! I use masking tape for water marbling. For some reason the latex grosses me out when used with water marbling. But I use the latex for everything else nail art related.

  13. Thanks for the tip. Back when I was a lot messier at polishing my nails, I'd try to use tape. Still never worked very well haha. I'm getting to the point now where I can often paint my right hand with hardly any cleanup.
