My gel is BUBBLING?

My gel is BUBBLING?

You've just spent your self-care time sculpting the perfect at home manicure, only to discover the gel polish appears wrinkly and bubbled. This situation can be incredibly vexing, but fear not, as it's a common issue with a straightforward explanation.

The culprit behind gel polish wrinkling after curing often boils down to the application process. If the gel polish is applied too thick, it creates a barrier that hinders the LED lights from fully penetrating the layers. Consequently, the polish cannot cure evenly throughout its depth, resulting in a top layer that looks crinkled, bubbled, or uneven.

One critical point to remember is not to add more layers of gel polish in an attempt to mask the wrinkled layer. This strategy is unlikely to yield a smooth top coat, and the layers beneath will remain uncured. Gel polish that's inadequately cured is more prone to premature peeling.

Other factors can contribute: Inadequate nail preparation may lead to wrinkling and/or it may be time to upgrade your nail lamp as the UV rays may no longer adequately penetrating the product. You can also cure your thumbs separately to ensure the lamp effectively cures the gel polish on all fingers.
