Is it ok to buff nails before applying shellac? After removal the nail plate is never smooth. I know that buffing should not be required. Iam getting so frustrated with my own nails because I do buff them but it can't be doing them any good. I have applied IBX twice and smoothing gel but it seems to be removal that's the problem. I use d.solve for 10 mins it always needs to be gently pushed off with orange wood stick then soak pad with dissolve place on nail for a min then rub but can't get a smooth surface without a buff with koala buffer. Thanks for any tips.
