- 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.
What have you tried that worked in deflating those bubbles??
