    Take the paper towel, and dip its edge into nail polish remover. Scrub your nails once again to remove any particles that were present on your nails. Now paint a layer of base coat onto the surface of your nails. Let it set for around 3 to 5 minutes. Once the base coat has dried up, start applying nail polish of your own choice on your nails. Make sure that the nail polish is applied on the entire nail in less than three strokes of your nail polish brush in order to prevent streaks. Wait for at least 5 minutes, and then start applying the second coat of the nail polish.
