Fix any smudges using a very light hand and nail polish remover. Use a paper towel, Q-tip or the opposite finger, dip it in nail polish remover and then gently smooth out any smudges by gently tapping it out. It will allow the nail polish to spread out and smooth over the area.
Another reason why nail polish gets streaky is because the brush strokes show through. Keep the brush at a 45 degree angle, not flat against the nail, to prevent brush strokes Fromm showing through. Keep the brush up at the base of your cuticle and press down gently to fan the bristles out and swipe downwards.
Generally 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.

Frequently Asked Questions(FAQ)
Why is my top coat bumpy?
If you ever re-do a nail, buff off the top coat and reapply Activator, too. Take note that ridges, waves, or bumps issues usually happen when you’re a little too generous when applying the Activator. When this occurs, be sure to allow more time for the Activator to dry before applying the Sealer.
Why does nail polish wrinkle?
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.
Can you put cuticle oil over nail polish?
The oil will not harm or remove the nail polish. Additionally, cuticle oil is a great way to revamp an old manicure. Just massage the oil over your cuticles and nails to give them a fresh shine. Do not use it before a manicure.
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.
