Glitter nail polishes are irresistible – so sparkly, shiny and gorgeous. But it’s so hard to remove from nails – it’s such pain in the neck!
Though there’s this foil method, it’s still time consuming and can be messy.
Finally, some genius came out with this DIY peel-off base coat idea that we glitter ladies can now enjoy beautiful, sparkly nails without worrying to remove it. Let’s get it started!
- Elmer’s Glue
- Empty Nail Polish Bottle
- Cotton pads and paper towels
Step 1: Clean your nail polish bottle
Fill the bottle with pure acetone about half way and gently shake for a minute or two. Any polish residue will melt. Repeat if required and rinse under lukewarm water.
Make sure cap, brush and bottle neck are clean, too. You may need cotton pads at this point.
Let dry on a piece of paper towel.
Step 2: Fill the bottle with glue
Fill the bottle with glue when it’s dry. The bottle does not have to be completely dry since the glue is water-based.
Try applying your new peel-off base coat for ideal consistency. If you find it too thick, add a few drops water until it’s thin enough to apply evenly on nails.
You can now use your new peel-off base coat instead of regular ones when applying glitter nail polish. Some important tips to follow:
- Make sure the glue is completely dry before applying nail polish
- This peel-off glue base coat won’t prevent staining. Use your regular base coat over the glue if you think the nail polish will cause stain on nails.
