It's Time You Stopped Waiting For Your Nails to Dry
Can anyone relate to the pain in the butt, that is waiting for your nails to dry?
Picture this, you've finally found the time in your busy schedule to sit down and paint your nails, only to realise that once you've committed to the polish, you've also committed to not being able to use your hands properly for the next 30 minutes of your life, or risk completely ruining your paint job . . . Not exactly an ideal situation, right?
In an effort to cut down on the wasted time that is waiting for your nails to dry (because let's be real, you've got more important things to do), here are the fastest ways to get those nails dry. Products included.
Swap In a Quick-Dry Polish
If you find you're constantly ruining your nails before you've even had a chance to apply top coat, consider replacing your current polish with a quick dry alternative. Many brands have these available to shop in a variety of colours, so you should be able to find an almost perfect match to replace your current favourite.
Give Your Nails a Blow Dry
Mimic an in-salon service, and use your hair dryer to blow dry your nails. Just remember to make sure you've switched to the cool air setting before blasting your nails.
Invest in Drying Drops
Investing in quick dry drops, or nail drying spray is probably our number one tip! Although it might feel like just another added expense, these products really do have the ability to cut your nail drying time in half. After all, time is money, right?
Apply in Thin Layers
Have you ever noticed how nail professionals always apply product using thin, even layers? Well, there is logic behind this method. Not only do the thin layers allow the polish to dry down much quicker, it will also help to extend the life of your manicure by keeping the polish as close to the nail as possible, preventing lifting.
Quick Dry Top Coats Are Your Friend
If you're painting your nails and not adding top coat, you're doing yourself a huge disservice. Ending your manicure with a specially formulated fast drying top coat will help to smooth out the finished product, and lock in the base layers to prevent you from smudging your hard work.
