===Decorating the Nail to Cover the Smudge===
#Add a layer of glitter polish to highlight the nail. Don’t stress if a single nail looks smudged. Before you reach for the acetone, try experimenting with some glitter polish instead. Apply 1 coat of glitter polish to cover any apparent smudges, then wait at least 5 minutes for the polish to dry. To even out the appearance of your nails, paint the same nail on your opposite hand in glitter polish!<ref>https://www.realsimple.com/beauty-fashion/skincare/hands-feet/how-to-fix-botched-manicure</ref>

#Choose a polish dotting tool for making playful designs. Take a special dotting tool for precise nail art and use it to make special designs all over the smudged parts of your nail. If you really like the design, you’re welcome to add more fun art to the rest of your nails as well!<ref>https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=FbcqHbv10e4&t=203s&t=4m5s</ref>

#Use gems or rhinestones for a fun and easy fix. Use a series of rhinestones to create a bright, funky design over the smudged portion of your nail. Add a dot of nail glue to each rhinestone, and position each stone with the tip of a pencil. Wait a few seconds for the glue to dry before moving your fingers around.<ref>https://ift.tt/33YBAgi>

#Soak the tip of a cotton swab in acetone. Remove the cap of an acetone bottle and fill it with polish remover. Next, take a cotton swab and place 1 end in the filled cap to drench it completely. Pinch the soaked end of the cotton swab to squeeze out any excess acetone ahead of time.<ref>https://ift.tt/2NWkkCx>

#Rub the cotton swab to spread more polish into the smudged area. Wipe around the smudged spot on your nail to loosen and spread more polish into the affected area. Use small, light movements as you rub the cotton swab, working above, below, and to the sides of the smudge to begin transferring some of the polish color.<ref>https://ift.tt/2NWkkCx>

#Wait 10 seconds for the polish to dry. Let the formula set for at least 10 seconds before you add a protective top coat. You can see visible change in the smudged portions of your nail as the wrinkles and scuffs disappear from the surface of the polish.<ref>https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=dhFc6_MtJbs&t=1m42s</ref>

#Add a top coat to protect your nails from any more smudges. Apply a smooth, even layer of clear top coat polish over the surface of the smudge-free nail.
