I have two questions, actually. Number one: Which is the best cheapie clear nail polish you've found for doing glitters? Number two: You wouldn't happen to be doing any give aways anytime soon, would you? I absolutely ADORE some of the colours you use, but we don't really have a great supply in my town, so I'm always looking for ways to find them, lol
I’m not sure I know what you mean by “doing glitters”. Do you mean mixing loose glitter into to create your own glitter polish? If so, I have no idea, I’ve never tried that. (Fail.) Or do you mean a topcoat to put over glitter to make it less chunky? If that’s what you’re asking, then I actually recommend using a nice clear basecoat for that. They’re a little thicker and work wonderfully!
I have no plans for a giveaway anytime soon I’m sorry. :( Where do you live? If you haven’t already, I recommend Googling “nail supply store” and “beauty supply store” in the areas surrounding your town (especially whichever city is closest and biggest to you). I have to travel a bit farther to get polishes in the store, but I mainly buy online. Check out my Where to Shop page for more about good online stores.
Okay, so this may seem as a totally basic question, but how does one avoid getting any air bubbles in their nails? It seems that every time I paint my nails, these random air bubbles appear as the nails dry, and it really makes me sad :( but then I'm too lazy to redo my nails.
I don’t think this is a basic question at all. In fact, I basically can’t answer it from my own knowledge. However, I Googled it, and found an article from Sally Beauty Supply that seems to answer it pretty completely. They suggest the following:
Nails with residue may bubble. Clean completely with remover first.
Old polish often bubbles.
Mix your bottle my rolling it in your hands (like you were trying to light a fire with a stick) rather than all around (like the oh-so-embarrassing Shake Weight).
If a spray-on polish dryer is used, don’t hold it too close to your nails.
Wait until each layer of polish is dry before applying another. (This is what I would have suggested most.)
I have honestly never had a problem with bubbles, so I’m pretty useless. I hope that my SparkNotes rendition of the Sally article is helpful though!
