    So basically after a hasty and embarrassing fix-it i had to do,

    I have a thin coating of selleys "liquid nails" all over both hands.

    Its been a few days now and it feels and looks fucked.

    I have even had multiple goes at this stuff my mates dad has for miners and mechanics, which is this crazy cleaner with tiny beads in it and all.... normally gets your hands from straight out of an engine to sqeaky clean in seconds, but it did nothing.

    It's not getting any better, and attempts to pick it off have proved futile. like i dunno if the tiny bits i get off are the glue or my skin.

    anyway i know this isnt a medical centre, just wondering if anyones been as dumb as me in the past..... cheers

    Nail polish remover.

    There is a stronger version of nail polish remover you can buy but I don't know what it's called.

    acetone or thinners. just get moisturiser ready.

    read the tube and see what it says about removing from your skin or from surfaces. its probly going to hurt when it comes off but...

    how about a stanley knife and shave the glue off?

    that's what I'd do, just need to be careful though

    sand paper? rough bricks? fuel and a match? nah but seriously acetone or white spirits maybe? but if you have got soft hands you will need to moisturise for a while afterwards
