Step 1: Base Coat
Apply base coat to protect your nails. This also helps your manicure stay on longer.
Step 2: Base Color
Apply a light color for your bubbles to go on top of. I used white but you can you can use pastel colors or other light shades.
Step 3: Matte
Apply a matte topcoat on any nails that you DONT want bubbles on.
This step is optional, but I thought it looked cool with the matte top coat.
Leave the nails without topcoat alone to "dry" while you make the bubble "mixture".
In the picture, I put matte topcoat on my index, middle, and pinky finger.
Step 4: "Bubble Mixture"
On a sheet of foil or parchment paper, put 1-2 drops of nail polish and add 2-4 drops of nail polish thinner. We need the polish to be very thin, but do not put the thinner in the bottle of polish.
Step 5: Apply
Put a dot of the "mixture" on to your nail and use a q-tip to soak it back up, it will leave a circle of color that looks like a bubble.
Step 6: Repeat
Repeat for each color that you want to do and then add a matte top coat. And you're done:)
