Why do I keep getting little air bubbles in the acrylic?? I am definitely using the right consistency bead. It even seems to happen when I work wet!

Yet the twice I've used crystal nails it didn't happen!

Any ideas please ladies its the only thing holding me back right now.

It sounds like to me the problem may be:
The air bubbles come from the brush. When you dip in liquid you need to put a little more pressure on the bristles to the side of your dampen dish. That pushes all the air from the brush.
I recommend a ceramic dampen dish (see pic). It is heavy and allows you to use a firmer pressure when taking liquid out of the brush and you can cork it so you are not wasting product. Much better then the tiny glass dampen dishes!
