Solution for Frosty Brushstrokes!

There is an easy way to solve the problem of the pesky frosty polish that applies and show each individual brushstroke. It can really distract from the beauty of the polish, so how can you get rid of it? Sponge on the final coat!

Take for example Pure Ice Platinum.
This is 3 coats and it's full of brushstrokes.

Take a small piece of a makeup sponge, or a clean eye shadow applicator like pictured here, and sponge on the last coat of nail polish.

Look at that smooth finish?! What a drastic change! It's a super easy technique that anybody can use to get more use out of their polishes. Now you don't have to pass up anything for fear of pesky brushstrokes!

Thanks for reading! I hope you enjoy!

  3. @przeszkoda- topcoat doesn't always help to hide the large brushstrokes of some polishes.

    @Jackie- glad it helped!
