If you have a few dabs of dry polish on your cuticles postmanicure, use a piece of clear tape to remove it. Smooth the tape carefully over the mistake, then remove it quickly, like you're waxing your finger. The paint should come off cleanly.
Note to try this with my Avon colors: ABSTRACTNail art tutorial Needle drag. Put one basic coat. Let dry. Put a thicker coat and IMMEDIATELY put the strokes, so wet in wet. Drag or swirl with a needle.
