You should generally wait a full 24 hours before adding a second coat of clear to a vehicle. This allows it to fully dry and cure for the best results.

How do you give yourself a manicure?

First of all you will need clear nail varnish and white nail varnish . You apply the clear varnish first then wait for 3-4 minutes for it to dry then get the white nail varnish and apply it to the tip of the nail only . Wait for it to dry , this is very important as the nail varnish will smudge if you do not wait for it to dry. Then finally apply another coat of clear nail varnish for a glossy and smooth look . Hope this helped x
