two minutes 2 minutes. Yup, 2 full minutes between the base coat and the color, two minutes between color coats, and then two minutes before the top coat goes on. She says that’s all you need to wait in between to get a dry enough surface to get the next layer to adhere.

Should I buff my nails before polish?

If you don’t buff, the natural oils in your nails can build up, leaving manicure-ruining residue on them, says Rita Remark, Essie global lead educator. Buffing your nails is kind of like brushing your teeth—it’s brightening, it makes nails look more youthful, and it gets rid of ridges. Her tool of choice?

How far away from the cuticle should polish be applied?

Apply the side of the brush with the polish on, to the centre of your nail, about 1-2mm away from the skin at the base of the nail.
