Video: How To Stop Your Nail Polish Going Bumpy

Intro Deck: 

We've all been there; you're in that preening mood, paint your nails and the polish goes bumpy. We spoke to manicure expert Jenny Longworth about how to get salon-perfect talons, and it was the best advice we've ever heard...

It's up there with the most bothersome beauty issues; when you take time to do a DIY manicure - with the base coat, top coat and all - and the polish goes bumpy.

To avoid everything about this nail nightmare, Jenny has a handy tip that'll get your talons salon-perfect. Watch the video and see...
