hi there, i don't know specifically of the nail art product you are using but with any nail art you have done, when applying your top coat you must be careful not to get your brush too close to the art or you will drag it and be left with a big smudge. try getting a brush quite full of top coat and 'float' it over the design, don't play with it too much, try getting the top coat on in three light strokes and you might have more luck.
i spend loads of time on art and it is really dissapointing when it gets ruined by your top coat.

also make sure the top coat is one recommended for sealing nail art, some i have found are too harsh and will crack or drag your design no matter how careful you are.

hope this makes sense.

Not sure if same for that product but i know that when using any sort of nail art foil you need a specific top coat otherwise it just seems to melt the foil you've put on. I know star nails do a foil top coat i think its called a "wrap sealer" rather than a top coat, maybe give that a go. Its worth a try, or even contactNSI and ask what they recomend.

i know from experience as having done it myslf. i actually did some nails and after doing nail art with some nail foil, i then used the finish sealer instead of the Wrap sealer, the whole lot ended up cracking and looking likeasort of cracked glaze. The funny thing was the client loved it!!! So i didn't say anything....lol:D
