The sticky residue occurs in the upper layer due to exposure to oxygen. Oxygen does not let the upper layer cure properly. Since we have a high percentage of oxygen in the air, so we can’t avoid oxygen exposure to the upper layer. But once you apply another coat, the previous coat will get properly cured.

How many top coats of nail polish should I apply?
