DIY peel-off base coat

Step 01: Take a bowl and squeeze a small amount of white glue into it.

Step 02: Add a few drops of water to the glue.

Step 03: Now grab a brush and mix the solution well until it is uniform.

Step 04: Apply the solution onto your clean nails with the help of the same brush.

Step 05: Let your base coat dry for a few minutes. It’ll look white during application, but it will dry to a clear, transparent finish.

Step 06: Pick a glitter nail polish of your choice and apply it like you normally would.

Step 07: Once you get bored of your polish, simply take an orange stick to gently peel back your glitter nail polish. Easy-peasy!
