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 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... =)
