Why do light-colored polishes get streaky?

Q.

When I use light-colored polishes, the polish tends to get streaky. I’ll keep going over it to get rid of the streaks, which then leads to thick polish. What am I doing wrong? Is there a special technique for light or sheer polish application?

A.

Tracey Revis: Start by making sure that there is not too much polish on the brush. Apply one even stroke down the center then one even stroke down the left side, then the right side. If the polish looks thin or you can see two makes on the left or right side, follow by applying one stroke down the center again. The amount of polish on the brush is very important. You may want to practice on nail tips or a nail palette.
