I love painting my nails … but it makes me crazy that I can’t do anything after! Here are some awesome tips to get your nails dried in a jiffy!
Ice water: Dipping your freshly painted digits in ice water for a couple minutes immediately helps set the polish quickly!
Use a blow dryer: Your blow dryer is not only for drying your hair! This can quickly dry your nails too! Just set it to low heat and hold if over your nails for a little while! (It won’t work on warm).
Thinner coats: Painting your nails with thinner coats of paint and letting them dry between is much faster than using a couple of thicker coats (and as an added bonus, it usually goes on a lot smoother too!)
Cooking Spray: As crazy as it sounds, a little spritz of cooking spray on your wet nails helps them dry quicker! Added bonus, it moisturizes your cuticles too!
Quick Dry Top Coat: Make your final coat a quick dry top coat. While this doesn’t dry the layers underneath, it certainly give it a protective barrier while they dry!
Freeze Dry: If you’re really in a rush, put your hands in the freezer for a bit! Crazy but true, the cool temperature will help set that polish in a jiffy!
