It’s happened to all of us, you’re running late or an important task urgently needs your attention, but your nails are wet. Nail polish’s role in making an outfit look complete is completely undermined, but the only issue with it is, how long it takes to dry. However there is no reason to stay distressed, as it is possible to get your nails to dry faster! Just read the article below to find out more.

1.     Dip Your Nails In Cold Water:

Since cold hardens polish, try sticking your freshly painted nails in a bowl of ice cold water immediately after applying the last coat, for 2-3 minutes to get your nails to dry quicker.

2.     Stick It In The Freezer:

If it’s more convenient for you simply sticking your hand in the freezer works just as well as dipping it in ice.

3.     Fast Drying Top Coat:

To get that finishing look and to get your nails to dry faster!

4.     Wear A Thinner Coat:

If time really isn’t on your side, wearing a thinner coat not only dries your nails faster, but also saves you time in application

5.     Hair Dryer:

From allowing you to style and dry your hair perfectly to being able to dry your nails quicker, is there anything a hairdryer can’t do? Make sure to set your dryer to the coolest setting and to keep  a little distance between the nail and the dryer.

6.     Wind Power:

Sticking them under a fan will take longer and work less effectively than a hairdryer, but is an acceptable alternative

7.     Blow:

Desperate times call for desperate measures, in the absence of all other resources, simply blow on you r nails to try and speed up the drying process.
