I have mentioned PVA glue a couple times on here and I know some of you readers are just itching to try it!
If you haven't heard of it before, PVA glue is simply Elmer's glue or any white craft glue. When painted on your nails it creates a peel off base coat that works perfectly with, you guessed it, GLITTER!
Now I think it is difficult to work with unless I use a brush to paint it on so this is what I did to get my PVA glue set up.
First you will need to gather your supplies: Acetone, a bottle of Elmer's Craft Glue and a bottle of clear polish. I used an almost empty bottle of clear that had pretty much died by this point.
I forgot to picture the cup above, but you will need something to empty the left over clear polish into for easy disposal, like a cup, a bag, maybe a garden...
DO NOT pour any polish down your mother's sink. I don't want any phone calls!
Pour as much of the polish out of the bottle as you can.
Once your bottle is empty, fill it part way with Acetone. Do this outside in case you spill like I did. Acetone WILL eat things!
Once you have some Acetone in your bottle, gently roll the bottle around in your hands. You want the acetone to eat any left over polish in the bottle. I then poured out the acetone and rinsed the bottle out with water. If there is a white filmy residue left over: repeat this step again!
Pour a little acetone into the cap and make sure to rinse the polish brush so the bristles are soft (not crusty).
I dried the inside of the bottle with a Q-tip to soak up most of the water in there before adding the glue.
Squeeze the glue into the bottle and fill it up almost to the top!
Stick your brush in there!
You are now ready to paint your nails with the glue! Add a thin coat to all of your nails. Make sure you don't put it on too thick!
Wait for them to dry.
Keep waiting until they are completely clear! Now you are ready to paint!
Add 2 coats of your favorite glitter bomb! I picked my nails off at work so unfortunately, I don't have any photos of them, but once you start peeling, they will all come off usually in one sheet! Super easy glitter removal!
Happy Tips on Tuesday!
