let it stand for about 10 minutes. This will make the polish soft. Easy to push with the nail pusher.

There, all done. You can go ahead and do your regular manicure or wash your nails and put a nail strengthener. I love Nail Envy from OPI.

Done! That's after application of Nail Strengthener (OPI Nail Envy) and no manicure done. All smooth. 😉
