Okay the title is cute, the actual bubbling of nail polish is not. You do a nice manicure, only to find teeny little dots and craters on the nail surface. AKA bubbling. Click to enlarge and you'll see what I mean.
What causes bubbling? Really any number of things. For me, I'm pretty sure it was the overhead ceiling fan blowing that caused my issue tonight. In the past, I've discovered other problems don't help: if your nail is oily (I usually just wipe it down with acetone if that's the case), laying the polish on too thick without letting each coat enough time to drive, if you're sitting where there's a draft.
Have you guys discovered any other things that cause bubbling? Or, better yet, a sure-fire way to avoid it? I'll be redoing my manicure without the fan on this time, and that should take care of it, I believe.
PS: Above is OPI What's With the Cattitude? Ignore the yellow on my nails...it's leftover Who the Shrek are You?
