Q.

When using tack-free sealer over acrylics or gels, what causes the noticeable bumps and bubbles? This turns a time-saver into a time-consumer.

A.

Bumps or bubbles are due to air bubbles being trapped in the gel before it cures. A great way to remedy this is to take a really fine file, and just smooth out the area where it occurred. You can use a top coat over that area for a quick fix. — Greg Salo is president of Young Nails.
