DIY Peel Off Base Coat

I decided to make my own peel off base coat to make taking glitter polish off easier.  I used Elmer’s glue, two nearly empty nail polish bottles, nail polish remover, Q-tips, and cotton balls.  
I started by pouring one nearly empty nail polish into the other.  
I added nail polish remover to the empty bottle and shook it around.  
When I emptied the nail polish remover, there was still some residue so I dipped a Q-tip into nail polish remover and cleaned some more.  
I soaked a cotton ball in nail polish remover and used that to clean the nail polish brush.  

Next you can either add the glue to your cleaned nail polish bottle or you can add a drop of glue to your nail and spread it with the nail polish brush.  The later is easier and would save you the hassle of cleaning out a nail polish bottle.  The glue goes on white and dries clear.  It takes a good amount of time to dry depending on how thick you apply it.  When the glue does finally dry, you can paint your nails.
When you are ready to remove your polish, you simply peel it away.  My peel off base coat did not start coming off before I was ready.  When I started to peel off my nail polish, it was coming off in small bits.  A few pieces came off in chunks, but for the most part it was a slow process.  


There was a bit of residue left over on my nail that I easily wiped away with a cotton ball soaked in nail polish remover.  
I had high hopes for my DIY peel off base coat, but it just did not work that well for me.
