Spicey'z Nails~Try it on Tuesday Week #9~ Sally Girl & Essie



For today's  "Try it on Tuesday"  I decided to use~
Sally Girl "Epic" and Essie "Stroke of Brillance".


  


I decided to do the reverse glitter tips... I used the glitter on "top of my nails" instead of the tips...=)




This color is pretty.. It's more of a Blurple, more towards blue. Either way, I really like it...=)

Glue Base Coat for Easy Glitter Removal


What's this Elmers Glue or PVA everyones talking about?!... Well it all comes down that it's "Glue" used as a "Base Coat". Yup! That gooey white stuff [glue] we applied to our hands as kids & loved to peel it off for fun!..lol 

If you LOVE GLITTER polish, like I do, and want to try another method besides the  Foil Method for removal, then give this a try! =)

Having bought enough school supplies, I found a glue bottle in my stash and I decided to give this method a try. 

Here's what I used for my experiment:


Elmer's Shool Glue, An empty bottle to put glue in, Nail's Inc. Sprinkles ~"Pudding Lane" & Poshé Top Coat


I used an empty polish bottle I had & poured 80% glue into the bottle and filled the rest w/water to thin out the thick glue... Shook the bottle very well & applied 1 coat to each of my nails & patiently waited for the glue to dry. This process took approx. 5 minutes. I then applied 2 coats of "Pudding Lane" & 1 coat of Poshé TC.





I find that the application went on well, nothing different from other base coats and it dried well too! =)





Unfortunately, for me this beautiful manicure only lasted me 1 day. Perhaps the next time around I'll use 2 coats of the glue as a base & apply 2 of the top coat as well to help it last longer. Once I saw it begin to peel while I was outdoors, I used my fingernail to finish lifting off the polish. It did lift off easily & no damage to my nail was done. If you're at home you can use an orange stick to help lifting.

Overall, the removal did work w/o having to use foil, or soak in Acetone!!...Yay!!!!...=)
It came off easily and clean. Any little pieces of residue were removed with a little acetone on a cotton pad.
My nails were ready to be washed, moisturized & mani-ready for the next polish!

So, how many of you have tried this and/or could give me different pointers? Please tell me your thoughts or questions about this method... =)

My 1st Water Marble


                  My 1st Water Marble attempt & here's what I used:

Real "Body Gitter" from "Icing", China Glaze "Man Hunt", WnW "Silvivor" & Rhinestones for accents

I was 80% Satisfied with the turn out. I was only diappointed because the blue color was too sheer & not deep enough. The China Glaze "Man Hunt" is better off used for a jelly mani. =)
For my water marble guidance I just go to the "Water Marble Queen"~ Mixedmama =)

Outdoors


What do you think?...=)
