You should be applying the adhesive to the thin strip on the false eye lash. It will look a little blueish at first but then it dries clear. I usually put a thin film on the strip of the eyelash, then I let it set for a minute or so and repeat it again, making it a nice thicker coating because sometimes one coat is not enough and the strip may not stick the way you would like it to. You can remove it with baby oil, or your favourite adhesive remover. I use baby oil on a cotton ball and let it sit on my eyes for a couple of minutes before I remove the lash. Never rip the lash off your permanent eyelashes for obvious reasons.
