Glitter Bomb! ANM

Another ANM mani for another Monday, todays theme being 'Glitterbomb!'. Those who frequent my blog are aware of my serious dislike of glitter polish and their timely and annoying removal!! For this mani, I used PVA (yes, the glue) for my base. Just painted on 2 thin coats and allowed it to dry completely before painting.. but does it work? Keep reading to find out.

Polishes: Polished London Miss Navy, Sally Hansen White On, ChiChi glitter (unnamed).

The glittered french tip was so thick it was like a lump of polish at the end!! There's 3 coats of the ChiChi glitter polish, my nails were like double thickness to normal from side on :)
Now.. did the PVA glue work? It's not the first time I've tried the glue method, but I did have greater success with removal this time around.. or was it really?

24 hours later, here's what basically fell off my nails. Yay! For no messy and time consuming soaking for removal, but BOO! for longevity... once they had starter to lift in the bottom corners, they really just peeled off. I have peeling issues with my Seche Vite topcoat and most manis don't last very long on me, so I wasn't terribly upset that I didn't get longer out of this one, and it was SO much EASIER than the soaking method!!

  1. Glue? That's genius! I love what you do with your nails - I wish I had your talent!

    1. Pfft! Talent hahah thanks mate :) yes glue!

  2. Aww but it looked so pretty! look at the colours. Shame that it comes off in 24hrs!!

    1. My nail polish always lifts really soon, so I'm used to not wearing the same polish for days, even the ones marketed at long lasting do not stay on me... the fact that a glitter can fall off is so much better than having to soak them or use foil! I wasn't too sad, at least I know I can wear my pretty glitters more often (and change them daily! haha)
