Why Does My Nail Polish Wrinkle?

Written by Tara

If you see wrinkles on one or more of the nail and if gel polish is already cured, try this first: Apply gel topcoat. Try to fill up the wrinkles with just enough clear gel top coat so it will not run over the cuticles and cure for 45 seconds.

Wrinkled or bubbled gel polish happens because the polish is likely to be thick already and this thickness prevents the UV light to completely cure the gel polish at the lower layer. This results in wrinkling or bubbling of the gel polish on the top layer. More gel polish will not help to smooth it out.

Generally How do you make nail polish smooth? In order for the polish to go on smoothly, your nails must be clean. Use nail polish remover to take off any old polish that may be on your nails. If your nails are bare, wash your hands to ensure that there is no dirt, oil, or other residue on your nails.

Frequently Asked Questions(FAQ)

Why is my nail polish bumpy?

Nail polish can form bubbles when it is too old, too thick, or of poor quality. Another common mistake is to apply polish in excessively thick layers and not waiting long enough before applying another coat. Oil and moisture are common culprits.

Why is my gel polish not smooth?

File grit Don’t forget that gel needs a dry, rough surface on which to stick. A coarse-grit file is needed with most gel polished, in order for the gel to properly adhere to your nail surface. If the surface is not entirely buffed, the gel will not lie smooth and when cured, it could cause your nails to appear dull.

Can you buff nail polish?

You can use polish remover, rubbing alcohol, or even white vinegar. Using the fine grit side of the buffer, gently buff to even out nail surface. No need to over-buff, so keep this step to a minimum. Overzealous buffing will thin out your nails.

How do you thin old nail polish?

Add a Drop (or two) of Pure Acetone Just like polish thinners, it’s critical to use only one drop of pure acetone in your bottle of nail polish. Shake well, and if the polish is still too thick, add one more drop, says Hill.

How long should I wait between coats of nail polish?

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.
