I did feel like a small child painting my fingers with glue.
A protective base coat is so normal for me, I felt naughty going without one.
I won't use pva unless I plan to put glitter on my nails, however, I often end up bunging loads of glitter on at the end of a normal manicure to prolong it.
Base colour: Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine,

|Bright light really shows this off|
|It really does peel off!|
