Ruby White Tips Latex Review
So today I have a review up for you of the new Latex Barrier from Ruby White Tips shop linked here. This is my first indie latex barrier I've tried, as in the past I've only used latex extension glue from Sally Beauty which works in the same way. Extension glue is great and cheap...and also a gross poop brown. It also needs to be applied with an art sized brush which ruins the brush for future use for art. The RWT Latex is bubble gum purple and the lip gloss style applicator makes this way easier to use and much easier on the eyes!
As with all latex, you apply to the sides and cuticle area of the fingers and allow to dry. Once dry, you apply your art and just peel off. For my art I used Essie Penny Talk to stamp on This Is Not Black also from the RWT Winter Collection! As a tip, latex dries incredibly fast and the colour will darken once it's dry.
For anyone who is into messy art like stamping, picking up a tube of latex really is the way to go. It saves you tons of time on your clean up, and it's kind of fun to peel off too. Once again, it's available for purchase at the RWT Etsy Shop linked here. As a heads up if you are reading this a couple week after the post went live, Ruby White Tips will be switching its shop over to the Amazon platform linked here.
