Peel Off Glue Base? Not for me


I’d love to report that this worked, but as you’ll see below it’s really not a successful removal if your finger nails HURT for ten minutes after ‘peeling’ this polish off. I am disappointed this didn’t work for me. But whatever, for those of you whom it worked for I am glad for you, I will just chalk it up to chemistry. I also had chipping on day one, so this method just was not my ‘holy grail’ as it might be for some of you ladies.

I tried to make it work, but it just isn’t meant to be for me. My nails ache and that’s no good. So it’s fingertip grippers for me! I shouldn’t have set up a whole nail polish bottle of glue darnit. I really wanted this to work. Now just because it didn’t work for me, doesn’t mean it won’t for you, I’ve seen it working for others, so try it and see but don’t go filling up a bottle of glue like I did until you are sure you want to do that. By day three I had four chipped nails and was ready to take it off.







As you can see not one of my nails peeled in a sheet and I did it the same way, using an orange wood stick, as Gina Soguesswhat11 did in the video I shared in my previous blog entry. If you did this method I’d love to hear if it worked for you or not. I seem to be in the minority as it seems to be working for most other people. This was two coats of Holiday Splendor from Color Club and one coat of Seche Vite. One coat obviously of the glue, but it just didn’t work out for me. Thanks for reading and happy polishing.

  1. Hmmmm.... interesting report. Well if your nails hurt that's a bad sign. I'll try it and see for me. I have to buy some Elmer's though. So sorry... :(

    1. I know I tried hard to make this work. I already had some elmer's, used it on bare nails and let it totally dry before I applied the color. I might not excrete enough oil from my nails for this to work if that's what makes it peel 'painlessly'. Because there was most definitely pain involved for me....Love to see if it works for you Jenni Lee!

  2. Sorry to hear it did't work for you. I noticed when I tried to remove it after 2 days it was a bit harder than just 1 day. Or it was the glitter polish I used. I used one of the CC chunky ones when I had it on for 2 days.

    1. Maybe that's why, because I left it for three full days? Hmmmm, might try again with a different glitter, Color Club glitters are hard core I have to admit. I love'em though!
