What's the fastest way to dry nailpolish??

I'm thinking about getting one of those lights they have you stick your hands in at the nail place.. but what else works?

I hardly ever paint my nails, but when I do, I always forget and bump the paint..

  • Blowing on them or using a blow dryer on them.

  • Ice water. A blow dryer might work but they'll be tacky. If you prepare a bowl of ice water before you polish then submerge your finger tips into the water they will dry almost immediately. We do this in the beauty shop where I work all the time.

  • NAIL EXPERTS Liquid Freeze Quick Dry Spray by Avon is awesome!
    You can get it at my website use code fsany for free shipping.
    I don't have time to sit around letting nail polish dry so I use the speed dry nail polishes by Avon and the spray and they're completely dry in a couple of minutes tops! Hope that helps :)

  • I don't paint my fingernails, but I get regular pedicures all year. The girl that does my pedicures uses a product called 1/2 time polich drying accelerator by Qtica. Base coat, 2 coats of polish and top coat are dry in about 10 minutes. I can even put my shoes back on without any problems.
