Q.

Is there anything wrong with using nail glue instead of top coat?

A.

I heard a tech talking about using nail glue instead of top coat on natural nails. She applies brush-on glue over the polish to keep it from chipping. Is there anything wrong with doing this?

Debra Marr-Leisy: There is nothing wrong with using brush-on nail glue over polish; however, this approach is not for everyone. Drawbacks are that you may not end up with a perfectly glossy and smooth finish as you would with top coat alone because cyanoacrylate glue shrinks slightly when it dries and removal will be more difficult and time consuming.
