Hello my darlings!I have recently finished taking a ceramics class at school, and my hands sure are thanking me! It was lots of fun, but much tougher on my poor hands than my other art classes. When I finally realized that my nail polish could now last more than a day, I threw together this little list of hacks. Who knew that white glue was such a great tool for nails?
- Your favorite nail polish
- Some white glue
- A paintbrush
The first hack for these simple materials is to use the glue as a base coat for glitter nail polish. We all know the struggle of trying to remove glitter nail polish. It is almost impossible! You don't have to tear up any more cotton balls, as long as you have some Elmer's glue and a paintbrush on hand. For this example I didn't use a glitter polish, but I can assure that the effects are the same.
See? It peels right off!
The next trick is essentially the same as the first. For this one, all you have to do it paint a layer of glue around your nail. This is especially helpful to those of us with shaky hands who tend to make a mess, because when you're done painting the glue (and stray polish) peels right off!
Go from this...
...to this! Much better!
The final nail-related use for glue is as a matte top coat. Matte nail polishes can be expensive, so why pay when you can just use glue? Unfortunately, due to the solubility of the glue, this wears off after a couple of washes. This look may not last very long, but it sure is cute for a single day or event!
I hope you like these tricks and will give them a try!
