Friday night, a glass of wine, gossip girls playing in the background, and a bottle of your favorite red nail polish. Is that how you are picturing the coming weekend, girls? Weekends are for self-care (a lavish lifestyle), and nothing gives us more happiness than coloring our nails, but what about the nail polish bubble? How to prevent nail polish bubbles and stop our money from being ruined? 

Getting rid of the nail polish bubbles seems tough because the bubbles usually surface during the drying process. The air gets trapped between the multiple layers of nail polish, leaving a trail of tiny bubbles behind. Now, you cannot stop your nail polish from drying because, hey, that’s the part of the process, right? However, there are a few tricks that you can use to prevent nail polish bubbles.

How To Prevent Nail Polish Bubbles With 6 Tried & Tested Tricks? Learn The Magical Hacks!

Nail polish bubbles are a big mess that none of us wants. They are the last thing we want after broken nails. At least, we have nail ridge fillers to help us take care of the chipped nails, but what about the bubbles. There are no products that can help us avoid them except a few tried and tested hacks that will help us achieve the smoothest nails every time.  

1# The No Shake Rule!

1# The No Shake Rule! How To Prevent Nail Polish Bubble

Most of the girls have a bad habit of shaking the nail polish bottle before applying the paint. We fail to realize that shaking the bottle creates thousands of tiny bubbles that we don’t see until they are on our nails after we apply a fresh coat of the polish.

Instead of shaking the bottle, you can roll it between the palm of your ends. However, if you shake the bottle to mix the color well, do it and leave the bottle aside for an hour before applying. This will help the bubbles settle before you start applying the paint. 

2# Goodbye To Thick Nail Paints!

Thicker nail polishes possess air bubbles for a longer time. The more thick your nail polish is, the more bubbles will start surfacing on your nails. (Science!) If you have a thick nail polish that you, so desperately want to apply, try adding a few drops of acetone or nail polish remover to the bottle.

Acetone or nail polish remover will instantly make the polish thinner and it is ready for you with no bubbles. However, remember that they will also weaken the bond between your nails and the polish, that is, the paint will start to chip away soon. 

3# Keep The Lid On The Bottle!

Don’t we all forget to put the lid back on our nail polish bottles while painting our nails? I know, we all do, so don’t even try to say no. The longer we keep the bottle open without a lid, the more it comes in contact with air, and the bubbles start to surface because the polish begins to thicken.

Now, we all know thick nail polish is a bubble trap. So, keep the lid on every time you are not using the bottle. Even if you have to do it 20 times in between a mani-pedi session, do it. 

4# Apply The Polish In A Cool Temperature!

Yes, it is true that the temperature around you also affects the bubbles popping up in your nail polish bottle. The higher the temperature, the more bubbles you will see on your nails. If you are sitting in a room with a higher temperature, try keeping a small fan handy and use it to dry your nails after applying the polish. 

5# Always Let The First Coat Dry!

Most of us like to take our sweet little time while applying the nail polish that will complement our smooth and glowing skin, and others want to complete the session as soon as possible. There is nothing wrong with the latter, but there are some nail paints that don’t quickly dry. With such nail paints, you have to wait for the first layer to dry before applying the second layer. If you don’t do so, you will end up with tiny little bubbles surfacing over your nails. However, if you don’t have the time to let the coat dry, make sure that you invest in quick-dry nail polish. 

6# Lifting The Brush As Little As Possible!

Always remember, girls, quick strokes are a girl’s worst enemy because it pushes more air into the nail polish. It is always better to apply your nail polish with long strokes because it does the job effortlessly, and secondly, it doesn’t allow air to push into the nail paints. If you need to do quick strokes to cover a certain stop, please leave it to be done after the second coat. 

Final Words 

Start working on the tips mentioned above if you want to prevent nail polish bubbles and have a flawless manicure, just like Blair Waldorf. All these tricks have helped me and my friends achieve a salon-like nail session, and I am sure it will do the same for you as well.
