Getting bubbles when having your nails done is a disappointing phenomenon. But unfortunately, it is only sometimes that it's not there. Bubbles naturally appear due to some scientific reasons during nail polish applications. Bubbles annoy everyone and find it making their nail art and nail polish become imperfect beyond the hours spent to beautify one's self. When bubbles emerge in a flawlessly done manicure or pedicure, it is a good thing is that there are remedies and ways to prevent and avoid it to make you feel more satisfied and gorgeous.
How then can you prevent bubbles in the top coat and nail polish? The most crucial question is: Why does nail polish bubble? Let's find out.
Here are effective ways in preventing and avoiding bubbles in nail polish, and these are proven!
1. Make sure to prepare and have your nails done in a cool, dry area. The body can produce bubbles when it is too hot. After briefly soaking your hands in cold water to reduce heat, dry them, and paint your nails.
2. Stay away from open-air areas or anywhere that is too windy and airy when doing your nails. An area that is having strong air conditioners should also be avoided. The wind, air, and amount of humidity or temperature influence the cause of bubbling when applying your nail polish or gel. Doing your nails in an open area like a poolside, a terrace, or an open deck can be relaxing but you will risk getting bubbles. Make sure that the amount of windiness is not too strong. It is very desirable to do your nails in a well-ventilated area, but it is more recommended to do it inside the house or room.
3. Do not shake your polish or top coat. Roll the polish between your hands' palms if you need to combine it. When you shake the polish, millions of small, invisible bubbles are produced that, after the lacquer is applied to your nail, will appear as much larger bubbles. If you absolutely must shake a polish, wait at least a day before applying it.
4. Never use or apply top coats or polish that are too thick. The likelihood of seeing bubbles increases with polish thickness. The polish or top coat is thinner and the bubbles appear more quickly with a new bottle. Add a few drops of polish thinners, such as this one, to your polish if it is too thick. However, avoid using acetone or polish remover to dilute your polish because doing so will destroy the lacquer's composition forever.
5. Never leave the polish lid uncapped. When the polish is exposed to air, it thickens. As a result, the longer the lid is left off, the more air enters and the polish thickens. And everyone is aware that a heavy polish will bubble.
6. When painting, keep the brush on your nail. The ideal way to use a method is to do it in a single motion. I'll provide a video lesson on this method soon. Try three lengthy, slow strokes per nail if you can't accomplish it in one. Pushing air into the polish will need short, swift strokes. The ideal method for applying the top coat is as follows. Use the brush to pick up a decent amount of top coat, enough to cover the whole nail. Lower it to the nail bed gradually, then glide the brush down the nail without touching the nail to apply the top coat over the design.
7. Try not to dip the brush into polish too quickly or too frequently. You are essentially whipping the polish and adding millions of small bubbles by putting and removing the brush from the container. Slowly and precisely insert the brush into the bottle. Move the brush carefully away from any bubbles you spot-which are extremely obvious with a top coat.
8. Slow down and never do things so fast that you could not pay attention to details. To effectively perform your manicures, follow the procedures. Prior to using nail paint, always apply a base layer. Allow each coat to finish drying. It's probable that bubbles won't occur if the first coat is totally dry before the second coat is applied. It's still possible to go back and apply another layer if the first one develops any bubbles.
As the last step, make sure that you have followed all the rules and instructions stated above. These are my proven-and-true advice for preventing bubbles in nail top coats and varnishes. Don't hesitate to share with us if you have more suggestions to include in the list!
