OPI gels shrinking at free edge

I'm finding the edges on nails look like theres almost no polish on after curing, despite capping the free edge. This is usually with red/pink colours. Can anyone advise what this might be and how to stop it?

Hi.
1. Try removing sticky layer between coats, even from base coat.
2. If 1 didnt help: Try applying primer to free edge before color after wiping sticky layer from base.
3. If none from above helped: Apply color on whole nail, wipe sticky, apply color only on free edge, cure in lamp and apply one more layer on whole nail.
4. Buy red colors from NeoNail - best red shades ever - 1 coaters)
Good luck.

Possibly shake the polish extra hard before use. I find it settles on the nail incorrectly on the free edge because the gel separates from the colour.

I notice this happens when I don’t buff or wipe with rubbing alcohol well enough. Also try a high percentage of alcohol in the 90%
