    If I was you I'd stop and leave it for an hour before you get angry with it and make it even more of a mess. You should of really waited longer than 15 minutes as well to be honest m8. You will be able to rescue them so don't worry about that but take an hour out at least and then go back to them

    btw where did you get them from, was it ebay ? if so did they come in a big white bubble wrapped envelope and come from Poland ?

    Well when mine came I noticed on the envelope it said signiture required but the postman never asked for one and thats when I noticed the polish stamp and polish writing. The ebay ad said from the UK as well! Tut! Tut! indeed!

    Anyway because the postman didn't ask for a signiture I was able to erm *cough* say they hadn't arrived! lol and so they sent me another set and again the postman didn't ask me for a signiture even though it was required! lol This time though I said something to the postman and got him to take my signiture and then I told the ebay seller they had arrived. Two for price of one can't be bad though can it

    You don't need 5 coats lol

    3 coats, 1st one from far away around 30cm then wait 5mins

    second coat abit closer and go slower then wait 10mins

    3rd and final coat go heavier on the lacquer but not too close. that'll make everything wet/even
