Newsflash: this is actually a lip balm! I would never use it on my lips as it is too drying but i like to rub it into my nail beds. Any excess can be wiped off with a tissue but a little residue will remain - and that's okay. Your nail polish will dry just fine but if you make any mistakes in the painting process, it can be wiped straight off! Genius.
I used Pink Ribbons by Butter London and finished with my O.P.I top coat for extra shine and staying power.

While I don't normally recommend mixing flammable liquids with an open flame; I like to burn a scented candle to help counteract the nail polish smell. Ecoya candles are always a winner to me and this sweet pea and jasmine beauty is no exception.
Et voilà! Now to admire all your hard work and enjoy your new nails.
