my nails. I always get nail polish on my fingers. The harder I try to stay on my nails and off the skin- the worse it gets!

Pinterest had a solution for my bad nail painting skills! [Of course]


Pinterest:: Glue for Perfect Nails

So, the idea here is that you can paint the skin around your nails with school glue, let it dry, and then paint your nails with polish. No matter how messy you are with painting your nails, it doesn’t matter. You can [supposedly] peel the dried up glue off from around the nails and you are left with perfectly painted nails.


I Tested It

I did like they said. I painted around my skin. This is when I immediately thought- this is dumb! I am assuming you don’t want to get the glue on your nail- or the polish would pull off. So, basically painting the skin with glue is just as equally hard as painting your nails without

getting on the skin….so what’s the point?

Then you have to let the glue dry.

So, now we have more waiting time and painting nails has just become a half hour project.

Once the glue is dry you can paint your nails. Be messy. Have Fun. It will be perfect in the end. Right?

Pull off the dried glue once your nail polish has dried completely.

Um No.

This is stupid.


When I pulled off the glue- chunks of my nail polish pulled right off with it!!!

It is practically impossible to tell in this blurred image– but here it is:

All Is Wrong

Not only did this pin just make painting nails HARDER but it just did not work. It also left my fingers messy. I missed a lot of the glue because once it dries you can’t really see it on your fingers. Until an hour or so later when it looks like you have a skin disease causing your skin to peel and flake off around your nails. EWW



Just be glad I am sucker enough to fall for this so you don’t have to!

    Huh… how weird. At first thought, it does SOUND reasonable but the more I thought about it, the more I wondered about the paint pulling off. Thanks for proving my hypothesis. It sounded like it was a huge hassle!

    I like this idea — mainly as I have a bit of an obsession with pulling glue of my fingers (yes I was THAT kid at school) so even if it doesn’t work for nail varnish glue fingers are fun! LOL X

    I would’ve probably tried this. I guess no matter what you just can’t be messy daggone it 🙁
    Thanks for trying this out and sharing the results!

    Yeah..that is stupid…lol. However, have you seen the one about the vaseline around the cuticles? Supposedly, if you apply vaseline around your cuticles and then use a q-tip to wipe it off the actual nail prior to painting, then it prevents the color from drying on your skin. Haven’t tried it myself, but I’m curious…

      I saw that pin just the other day And was thinking of trying it. We may just add that to our list of To Test!
