  • It may be that your polish is reacting to either the base coat or the top coat. Something in the mixture of chemicals, its causing a reaction that makes it bubble like that.

    Switch top coats and see if it still happens.

  • i have always got a finger (skin) damp with polish remover and lightly rubbed the bump.

  • Did you paint your nails under the ceiling fan or in front of the fan ? It causes air bubbles.

  • There are a few things that might be causing this. If you take off your nail polish and immediately apply a basecoat without washing your hands first the left over remover on your nail could be causing the bumps. Make sure to wash your fingernails well after you've removed the polish. Also you might be applying the layers to quickly after one another. If you put on a coat and don't wait until it is fully dry it will start bubbling up on you. Using a speed dry polish will help. As for getting rid of them after the fact the only thing that you can do is buff them out with a nail buffer and apply another layer. Avon makes good speed dry polishes and speed dry spray use code fsany for free shipping. Hope that helps ;)
