I have never seen that happen with my matte top coat, but maybe something in the way you are applying it? Do you wash your hands between the color and matte coat? Tiny bits of water (lotion, cuticle oil, etc.) could be getting trapped between layers? Do you let your color dry before the top coat? Sometimes if the polish isn't dry, the whole texture of the polish can change.... or is your color polish aged or old? Does it happen with all your polish colors, or just one in particular?

Three things helped me get rid of this problem. 1.Check and see how old your underneath polish is. I have found that my nails 'bump' everytime I used a favorite old nail polish. I threw out my old polish and bought some new ones. 2. Also, becareful not to shake the nail polish it adds air bubbles that show up later after the nail polish has dried. And 3. becareful not to plunge the brush up and down in the nail polish this adds air bubbles. Good luck! :)

Let your nails dry completely without waving them around or blowing on them. What I do is let each coat dry for about 10 minutes then place my hands in a sink of cold water ( I add a few ice cubes to make it extra cold) for about 30-45 seconds. Let them air dry. Then apply the next coat and repeat. That seems to really help set the polish and eliminate air bubbles and bumps.

Try using less polish when you coat your nails & let the color polish dry a little before you put it on.

Are sure you apply the top coat after your nail polish is completely dry?

I haven't had this problem. Maybe the polish is not fully dry when you put the top coat on.

answer 7
are they air bubbles? if they are, then you're probably shaking it too hard which causes the bubbles making air getting through the polish.

Sometimes if the nail polish isn't completely dry it can cause bubbling. Also, a thicker layer of nail polish causes air to become trapped, also causing bubbling. Make sure the nail polish is completely dry and try thinner layers. I hope that solves the problem!

I did not have this issue at all. Did you let your nail color completely dry?

wait longer for your polish to try and stay away from things like fans, the bubbles are air bubbles you get them from swaying your hands, i suggest you sit down and watch tv or stay on the computer or something without moving your hands around and the bubbles should dissapear

I'm guessing so but it's made to make your shiny polish matte so I'm not sure how it would make your plain nails look. Its just a clear coat.

I don't see why not. It will probably look like natural nails, not shiny.

Absolutely, but it wouldn't make a difference appearance-wise. If you're looking to add a top coat to protect/show off your natural nails, try a thin layer of a regular top coat and then add the matte top coat. This way you have natural looking nails that protects against rips and tears without the shine.

It can be worn without polish, but it looks similar to your natural nail bed...like there's nothing on your nail.

I dont think it would make an difference to your natural nails. It will probably show as a matte nailbed.

It is possible to wear it without polish underneath, but it honestly looks very bad. It makes nails look dry and rough. It really is best layered over a polish with very little sparkle.
