Typical errors with nail polish that you should avoid

Instead of neglecting the base coat, apply it strategically. Start with a quality base coat to protect and smooth the nail surface. 

Avoid shaking the nail polish bottle vigorously. Instead, roll the bottle gently between your palms to mix the polish without creating bubbles. 20

Apply a thin top coat to enhance the longevity of your manicure. A thin layer dries faster and provides a more durable finish. 

When applying the top coat, ensure it's not too thick. Brush off excess on the sides of the bottle for an even surface and faster drying time. 

Instead of painting your nails in a single stroke, use three or four strokes for each nail. This technique contributes to a longer-lasting and uniform finish. 

Swipe down toward the tip of the nail starting in the middle, avoiding contact with cuticles. Then, swipe down the left and right sides in the same fashion for a more professional look. 

Pay attention to the tips of your nails. After applying the top coat, use the brush horizontally to cover the tips, preventing chipping and extending the life of your nail polish. 

Be precise in your application to avoid excess polish on the skin or cuticles. Use a small brush or a cotton swab dipped in polish remover for cleanup.
