Temptalia’s Tips

  1. I prefer to place the first initial bit of polish just below the center of the nail and pull it down to the bottom and then back to the top.
  2. I use one thin-medium coat for my first coat, then a medium to medium-thick coat on the second one. This is especially true with any streakier polish.
  3. Quick-drying top coat or speed drying top coat is a must to minimize sit-and-do-nothing time!
