Hi guys! In this DIY I will tell you how you can make homemade nail glue at home because nail glue is expensive and why not know how to make it?! :)

Step 1: THINGS YOU NEED AND HOW TO MAKE IT.

First things first things you will need!

Small container
glue(white or clear)

Clear nail polish

1 Q Tip

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------:)

Steps to make and apply!

Pour glue in small container filling about half of the container with glue .Make sure that the container is clean first. (White glue or clear glue, can be found in department or craft stores.)
Add the clear nail polish filling up the rest of the small container. The clear nail polish will the glue adhere smoothly to your nails. Cut the end off of a Q tip. Use the end that is free of the cotton to mix the glue and clear nail polish together. You will also use this to apply the glue to your nails. If you used the cotton side, you would get pieces of cotton stuck to your nails. Hold your fake nail down over the glue that you put on your real nail for at least one minute so that the homemade glue can set properly. It takes about 10 minutes to harden completely.

Hope this works for you!

    I made this DIY nail glue...(didn't take pics!) but unfortunately it is not secure enough for adult use. A nail glue that you buy is more like super glue instead of school glue (that is shown/recommended in this DIY), BUT with that being said, I think this DIY is PERFECT for children and tweens/young teens instead of the real sticky stuff as it is much more forgiving! It is preferable that the nail will pop off of a child's finger rather than damage or bend back the nail of an active youth.

    I found that just a little pressure at either side of a nail or nail tip would cause it to pop off rather cleanly with this mix. It also takes a LONG time to dry, where real nail glue takes approximately 10 seconds of hold time on each nail before becoming impossible to reposition (and maybe 3 to 5 minutes to completely dry). There is a big difference between real nail glue and this DIY, but this particular mix has it preferred uses. Just determine what YOUR goal is for nail glue before you use it.

    Didn't work all that well for me. Glue takes too long to dry. Thin layer doesn't hold. more glue sticks nails on better but doesn't dry enough at least not yet..Nails not strong enough since glue doesn't seem to be drying enough. I'll have to go get some nail glue tomorrow. Haven't used fake nails in a long time but my nails are so short and lousy looking due to nail biting problem, I couldn't stand looking at them . So I'm out of glue and wanted to try this, but nails are not going to stay on.

    If you just apply the clear top coat and press the acrylic down onto it until its dry, it works the same.
