Glue. Normal, good, old-fashioned elmers glue. If you like glitter polish, just go buy some. Squirt it into an empty polish bottles (I know you have some). Paint it on your nails, let it dry, and go straight for your lovely shiny glittery polish.
When it comes time remove, just peel it off! If it doesn’t completely come off (nothing is ever that easy with polish removal), run your hands under warm water and push it off with your other nails. You guys have not seen this manicure yet, but it is 4 coats of pure glitter polish….gone 🙂
Think about it. If you were anything like me as a child, you used to smear glue on your hands and when it dried peel it off. Same thing applies when you use polish! Just don’t paint all the way to your cuticle bed (you want the polish to stick directly around the edges, as the glue is water soluble…so glue the middle to the edges of your nail, with a thin border of just polish around your cuticles).
IT IS WONDERFUL. I can finally wear glitter polish without hating myself when I remove it. Takes 5 minutes to remove (although application is longer, you need to wait for the glue to turn clear, about 15 minutes).
Ok. Sorry. I’ve just been trying this a few times and it has changed the way I view glitter polish. Bring on the shinies!! And yes, it lasts through showers and daily life. I’ve worn it for 3 days so far, before removing the polish because I was bored (not because it flaked off).
