Why Is My Nail Polish Bumpy?

Written by Tara

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.

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.

Generally Why does my nail polish look uneven? Another reason why nail polish gets streaky is because the brush strokes show through.
