Nail Polish Tips

Can I Use Nail Polish Instead Of Glue?

Written by Tara

Use enough polish for a relatively thick coat, but not so much that it will squish out from under your nail when you apply it. The amount that you would normally apply on your natural nail should be plenty. You can use any brand of clear polish, and you can even use polish that has glitter in it.

If you can’t stand the taste of glue – and who can really blame you – or your envelope seal isn’t sticky enough, you can use clear nail polish in its place. Apply a small layer to the flap and it’ll keep everything safe inside.

Generally What can I use to substitute nail glue? Nail polish remover, rubbing alcohol, or nail acetone, cotton balls, a nail file or buffer, and some basic cuticle oil. The process is pretty self-explanatory.

Frequently Asked Questions(FAQ)

How do you make fake nail glue?

To make nail glue, start by combining 1 cup of PVA glue and about half of a standard-sized bottle of nail polish in a bowl. Use a cotton swab stick to stir the mixture, since you can also use it for applying the glue afterwards.

Can you glue nails with eyelash glue?

Eyelash glue CAN be used to apply fake nails – as it is fundamentally a glue, it will still be able to create a bond between your real nail and the fake one you’re applying. But it’s worth pointing out the difference between what an eyelash glue and a nail glue are normally trying to do.

Can I use gel instead of nail glue?

Nail glues and no-light gels are chemically similar, in that they are both cyanoacrylates, but they have different viscosities. It won’t do any damage to interchange them, but for best results, always repair and fill gel extensions with the same gel used to create them.

How do you make homemade glue?


  1. 1/4 cup hot water.
  2. 2 tablespoons powdered dry milk or 1/4 cup of warm milk.
  3. 1 tablespoon vinegar.
  4. 1/8 to 1/2 teaspoon baking soda.
  5. More water, to reach desired consistency.
