I love painting my nails in fun colors each season, but the one thing I can’t stand? Having to wait for the polish to dry. Sitting there waiting just feels like a huge waste of time. Luckily, there are a few ways to get your nails to dry faster when you’re in a hurry. Try these tricks the next time you need your nails to dry in a flash.
Tip 1: Switch up your top coat. Try using a quick dry top coat that is meant to dry your polish in no time.
Tip 2: Soak your nails. After you are done painting your nails, allow them to air dry for at least one minute. Then, soak them in a bowl of cold water for a couple of minutes to speed up the drying process.
Tip 3: Use a hair dryer. Just like the nail salon dryers, using warm air on your nails can help them dry faster than air-drying.
Tip 4: This may sound weird, but try cooking oil spray. After you are done painting your nails, lightly spray the oil over your nails and allow it to sit for a couple of minutes. Then, wash off your hands to find completely dried nails.
