The fastest way to dry nail polish
Sitting for hours in saloon waiting for nail polish to dry can be tiresome and boring. The hours spent there depend on the layers put on the nails because the more layers the longer it takes to dry. If you cannot wait until it’s completely dry, here are ways to quickly dry the polish.
Dip your hands in a bowl of ice-cold water: The cold water freeze-dries polish, sealing and hardening it quickly. Allow nails to air-dry for two minutes, and then submerge in ice-cold water for three minutes, which is enough time for the polish to harden completely.
Blast nails with cool air from a hair dryer in between coats: This helps each layer of polish dry as you go.
Quick tip: Old nail polish can take forever to dry, since time can turn polish soft and sticky. When the polish begins to change color or separate, shop for new nail polish.
