How-to: Fix smudged nail polish
There’s nothing more frustrating than accidentally smudging your nail polish. Painting your nails isn’t exactly quick, so one smudge can make it feel like all your hard work has gone to waste.
In the video above, I show you a really simple way to fix smudged nail polish without having to re-do the whole nail. Don’t feel like watching our video? No worries! You can read the tips below instead.
Step 1: Soak both ends of a cotton tip in nail polish remover and gently rub one end over the smudge. If the nail polish starts to bleed around your nail, don’t panic! Simply use the other end of the cotton tip to tidy up any mess.
Step 2: Paint over the nail with a thin coat of polish and wait for it to dry.
Step 3: If a single coat looks too thin to blend with the rest of your nail, apply another thin coat.
Step 4: Once dry, apply a top coat to the whole nail for a smooth and even finish.
