Smudge Your Nail Polish Before it Dries?
To fix the smudge, dab the pad of your index
finger in non-acetone remover (be careful not to get any on your nail!).
"Lightly sweep it over the dent to smooth it out," says N.Y.C.
manicurist Jin Soon Choi. Cover with a light layer of polish, and finish with a
quick-dry top coat. Or try an at-home gel formula. Some gels need an LED or UV
light to dry, but this Nutra Nail kit has you alternate coats of
"activator" and color for a polish that sets in less than five minutes
and lasts about as long as a traditional manicure.
