TIPS-Y Friday; Avoid those pesky nail polish bubbles...

So with all these Nail Trends for Autumn to try, It's super annoying when you think you have laid your polish perfectly only to look down a few minutes later and then there's bubbles wtf$$*@&%^$?!?!?! Ok wooooohhhhh sahhhhh, I myself would prefer my bubbles in a champagne glass....relax and remove the polish, cleanse with alcohol and let the bare nails dry completely and then try some of these tips to avoid those pesky polish bubbles.

  •  Do not shake your polish bottle. Instead, try rolling it between your palms. Shaking the bottle creates little bubbles in which you then paint onto your nails.
  •  Do your nails in a cool, dry place. Preferably, Do your nails in a cool, ventilated place or try using a small fan to dry/cool your nails right after every layer is applied. Try running your hands in cold water and then drying them before you start painting if it’s hot out.
  • Let the first coat dry completely. Self explanatory... Other option to try if you are pressed for time, use a "quick-dry" formula.
  • Avoid thick polish. Apply a thin layer and allow it to dry completely before adding another layer. New bottle of polish usually has a thinner consistency than the one sitting on your desk for the past 3 years. FYI, adding nail polish remover to thin out your  nail polish only weakens the bond between the polish and your nails which causes it to chip easier.
  • Lift the brush as little as possible. Try doing long strokes instead of short quick strokes with the brush. Short strokes only allows more air to get in between the polish layers.
  •  Use a base coat. Laying a proper foundation for your polish is a must when trying to avoid bubbles.
  •  Avoid lotion. Using lotion leaves residue on nails which then creates bubbles. Again, wipe nails with alcohol or nail polish remover to clean up residue on nails.
