Got wet nails and no time to spare? Find out how to make nail polish dry faster with these at-home manicure tips.
Get a Blowout
The cool-shot button on your dryer can do more than seal your hair’s cuticles. It’s probably the most effective way to dry nails fast. Blast that chilly air about six inches from your nail beds for about a minute. Then gently tap nails to gauge if they’re still tacky.
Take a Dip in Cold Water
A two minute dunk should dry nails to the point that you can go about your business as normal.
Invest in a Quick-Dry Nail Polish
Trade your usual top coat for a quick dry version. For extra insurance, invest in drops, formulated with special resins to speed up dry time. Apply just a droplet to each nail after your top coat for best results.
