I just tried using the school glue last night for the first time.  It worked well, but I have already peeled off my entire mani. :rolleyes:

Maybe it was the polish I was using then. It definitely seemed like it was having a weird chemical reaction of some sort. The glue I was using was regular old Elmer's. I'll try a base coat over the glue next time. Thanks!

You have me sold but it's not in stock!  :(

I saw one of the indie makers commenting she uses yellow stopper from Sally Beauty.  I am not sure what that is exactly but that might be an option too.

 

OK I just looked it up and apparently it's supposed to be a non yellowing top coat but a few reviews say it does peel off.  I think I am going to grab a bottle next time I swing by there.

I tried this for my NYE mani, which I wanted to be a glitter bomb for just one night. About 30 seconds after I put the polish on over the glue it started buckling and cracking and getting all bunched up. What did I do wrong? Do you do a base coat, glue, color or no base coat? Let the glue dry all the way or put the polish on while it's still tacky? I'm dying to know the tricks because I keep hearing about people doing this and was excited to try it but then it was a disaster.
Just as others already said, regular Elmer's glue, let it dry completely. With or without base coat, it doesn't matter. I apply it thick. Meaning the nail is white from the glue. When the glue is dry it will be clear. And yeah, the temptation to start peeling it off is big, lol. But with a good top coat, I can get around 3-4 days of wear out of it. If I don't start picking on it that is.

I'm going to have to switch to something more conservative later today, I have a bunch of meetings tomorrow so I feel like I should tone it down...

Ah! Sequins! What a neat idea. Maybe the intensity of the iridescence doesn't show up on camera, but at least we get the idea of it; there is a hint of it in this photo for sure. Great mani design!

This mani makes me think of a certain television show with a spaceship and some deep space travel and certain uniforms... :) Blue and white is always a gorgeous combination!

This is Zoya Piaf with Starrily Bzz Bzz over it and Julep Leslie on the tips. I know it's over the top, but like the commercial says, "It's only weird if it doesn't work."

Well, a lucky mani is always a good thing! This one surprises me as being a yellow and black combination that I really truly like and appreciate. What a lovely and creative use of the glitter and a flattering mani with yellow!

Oooh! After looking at this, having my first experiences with Zoya PixieDusts (I got Nyx, Vespa, Godiva, Tomoko, Dahlia, London, Sunshine, and Liberty PixieDusts in my U.S. Christmas pickup, yippee!), and so enjoying Zoya Sarah, I'm regretting not getting Chyna! This is such a beautiful combination; of course it's nail art!

Thank-you, Anastasia, for your sweet comment! I wanted to try many new things at the same time, so it was a fun little experiment. I'm really enjoying the PixieDusts and both Cassedy and Sarah really amaze me (though Sarah looks more pink than red when stamping on white, especially in photos). They both are the kind you immediately admire when you put them on, and that make  you wish you were wearing only them. And as much as I love blue and like Dream, Cassedy and Sarah are the ones I want to try first as main colours! I can't wait until my nails even out - I didn't have the heart to cut them all when the one index fingernail broke and the other split.

I am doing the 3 free polishes for $12.00 promo Zoya has starting on 01/07.  London is number 1 on my wish list followed closely by Dream.  Still debating on the 3rd one or if I can afford to do anymore.  Deciding between Chita or Storm.

Storm and Nyx are my two favorite Zoyas besides Dream :)

I think I may just get the $25.00 worth so I can have free shipping and get the 3 free making them all like $4.50 each.  That way I can get Seraphina and Payton too.

julep farrah silk finish and julep missy tips LL
I'm wearing Farrah right now and I love the color, but I'm finding it doesn't wear well. Probably because I didn't use a top coat.

I picked up this set at Ulta tonight and ended up putting it back. Stupid no-buy! Looks way cool, though!
