Q: I am having trouble with the end result of Nail Envy. I take the trouble to wash hands after removing the polish to remove any residue and I leave a day between the first coats of Nail Envy and the polish. I then allow that to dry before applying the final coat of Nail Envy, but I still get a bubbled effect on the nail. Can you suggest anything to help me achieve a smooth finish?
Alison: Bubbling on the nail is either caused by oily nail plates or an allergy. If the latter is the case then I’d try ProStrong as they use different ingredients in their nail treatments. You'll know if it's an allergy because the top of the nail will have a stinging effect.
You don't need to leave a day in between your first coats of Nail Envy and the polish. You are, however, correct to wash your hands to remove any residue so that there is no oil left on the nail plate – that's one of my top tips!
