How do I avoid bubbles in my polish application?

Q.

Every time one of my clients receives a manicure, tiny bubbles form on her polished nails. The only thing that seems to work is having her scrub her nails before polishing. The last time she had her nails polished, the bubbles formed a strip right in the center of her thumb nail, and on the rest of her nails the bubbles were all over. Can you help me solve this mystery?

A.

This sounds like a moisture problem. Some people have oily or sweaty nail plates. Try dehydrating the nails by spraying 99% alcohol on a towel and then scrubbing the nail. Then apply nail prep and a good base coat. — Kesha Hackett is the owner of Lavender Nail & Make-up Studio in Oakland, Calif.
