Hello my fellow mermaids!
Today I have for you a review of a few products from Cuticula Nail Tape that the lovely Amanda sent to me.
In case you’re not familiar with Cuticula, here’s a bit of how it all began: “Cuticula Scented Liquid Nail Tape was created in 2013 by Kristin of @rainysunraynails. She knew she wanted a make a high quality liquid latex all while making it smell amazing and look as good as it smells. In February 2017 Kristin decided to step down from Cuticula and pursue her love of baking. She then decided to turn over the business to her great friend and business partner Amanda.”
I have tried some of her products before she sent me these and I had already fallen in love with them. They have quickly become my go to for nail tape, and now for base & top coat. Besides having amazing quality products, the scents she carries are so delicious that you won’t be able to stop smelling your nails all day long.
Let’s get into the review!
Static Base Coat
“Static Base Coat” is a sticky base that works like double sided sticky tape while adhering to your nail and the polish applied to it. I tried the “Chocolate Peppermint” scent and it really does smell like a chocolate peppermint candy bar.
I tried this base coat on my Cindy hand, and put it to the test about it’s ability to protect from staining my nails with a polish I know has a very high staining power. Well ladies, I have to report that after a week and a half of wear time, no staining was seen on my nails! I truly 100% recommend this base coat.
Shown here is 2 coats.
Scented Nail Tape
“Scented Nail Tape” is a latex barrier for your nails that protects them when doing gradients, nail stamping and even watermarble so you have little to none cleanup to do.
I tried the “Frooty Pebbles” scent, and again, it smells just like our beloved childhood cereal. The Cuticula nail tapes all have glitter in them, and that just makes them even more magical. It dries in between 1-2 minutes (depending on how thick you make it) and it peels without any problem.
Shown here is 1 coat.
Timeless Top Coat
“Timeless Top Coat” is a fast drying top coat that gives your nails shine and protection for up to 2 weeks (when pairing it with Static or Silk Base Coat).
I tried the “Sour Patch Candy” scent, and I know I’ve said this of every product, but OMG the scent! it’s so amazing, and I have to say that out of the 3 products I tried, this one’s my favorite.
You can totally see how a mani transforms as soon as you apply this top coat, and it truly dries within minutes. The scent lingered days after I applied it, even after showers, cooking and playing with my dog. I will definitely be purchasing more scents of this top coat.
