The URL for the front-end login is index.php?option=com_users&view=login

If you want you could also do the following:

(a) Create a menu item of the type User Login and unpublish it after the testing is over

(b) Create a module of the type mod_login and publish it in the appropriate module position. Once the testing is over, you could unpublish this module.
