Glitter and Glue Sandwich

I'm sure you're all aware of the trick of applying PVA glue to your nails before adding glitter so that you have easier removal. I just had to try it. I emptied a bottle of crap-o NYC extra shiny top coat (I used to use this and hairline cracks would appear all over my nails by the next day) and cleaned it out with a bit of acetone, let it dry out and squeezed some Elmer's school glue into it.

There's my super fancy glue bottle. I applied it and waited and waited for it to dry. Maybe I put it on too thick? It seemed to take forever. After it was dry, I chose to put Visually Slimming by Spoiled and Pet My Peacock by Spoiled on.

These are my first Spoiled polishes, by the way. I picked Visually Slimming because I wanted to try another black polish. It went on pretty thin which was actually cool for me! I didn't have a thin black polish before so I decided to take advantage of it by doing yet another glitter sandwich instead of just glitter on the top.

Pet My Peacock is so pretty, I think. It didn't give the glitter payoff that I was expecting though. There were a few times when I actually ended up with no glitter on a nail!

I think it turned out nice though. Now, onto the glue test! I'll put it under the cut in case you don't want to see peeled off polish and a naked thumbnail.

It peeled off like this!

This is my thumbnail after peeling it off. I'm pretty impressed! No glitter cleanup at all!
