How much is too much primer?
Apply primer like you would a very thin coat of base coat. I wipe my primer brush on the side of the bottle several times and apply to three nails, and then repeat the process.

I instruct newbies to cut half of the bristles off the brush to help control application, as well as to roll the brush around the rim of the bottle a few times to remove excess primer.
