@RachelEFletcher this sums up my routine. Also I do apply lotion but then wipe my nails down with rubbing alcohol
With the start of school just around the corner, it’s time to take a step back and reassess our beauty habits. First up on our list? At-home manicures. While there are many things that can go wrong with a DIY mani (sometimes just getting the lid off proves a challenge…), there’s one major problem in particular that I want to focus on today: bubbling . The “b-word” of the lacquer world, bubbling can happen to gurus and novices alike. Bubbles usually form during the drying process when air gets trapped in your polish and rises to the surface. Old, thick nail polish and unclean nails are other reasons why these annoying bubbles can occur.
