I tried doing a search to see if this topic has been covered but I couldn't find anything.

Whenever I'm applying my sunscreen (Bioderma's AKN spray), it always gets all over my fingernails ...

Any tips/tricks for how to prevent this?

Try dabbing a cuticle oil all over your nails, apply your SS and let dry, then take a washcloth and rub the excess cuticle oil off.

I apply a few pumps of camellia oil to my fingertips and massage well prior to applying sun protection. Then I can just wipe my hands after application to remove any residue.

What is the sunscreen doing to your manicure? I always apply sunscreen with bare hands and it has never damaged my manicure - But I usually get the pink & white gel nails maybe this is why?

Count me in for curious! Also, are you using a physical or chemical sunscreen? If the latter, I wonder if chemical sunscreens interact with some component of nail polish? Very curious about this now!
