Hi Everyone!! This post will share How to Dry Nail Polish faster in some easy ways.
Every girl would agree with me on this that there is nothing more annoying than waiting for your nail polish to get dry. For the next half an hour or so, after the application, we are not able to use our hands properly and even if we try to do, we end up ruining our paint job. In this post, I will be sharing with some ways that can help you in speeding up the painstakingly boring process of drying your nail polish. I have also shared How To Whiten Nails – DIY Nail Whitening Methods in one of my previous posts. So, you can check that post also as we all keep on applying nail enamels that result in yellowing of nails and to hide that we apply another coat the moment we remove the previous one.
How To Dry Nail Polish Faster
1. Application Of Thin Coats
First, on the list to know how to dry nail polish faster is to apply your nail polish in thin layers so that each layer can get dry. Apply 2-3 thin coats by wiping off a bit of nail polish from the applicator and let each coat dry for a couple of minutes before the application of next layer. Start painting your nails one by one and then repeat in the same order. This way, your first nail will become ready for the next coat by the time you end up painting your last nail. This process may take longer for the application but it will significantly reduce the drying time.

2. Use A Blow Dryer
You must have seen professionals in salons using fans at the end of the application of nail polish to speed up the drying process. So, your at-home version can be a hair dryer. Make sure to select the cold air setting, plug-in hair dryer and then by keeping it 12 inches (30 cm) above your nails, run the cool air across your fingertips for 2-3 minutes. Do this for both the hands. Do not use warm heat setting else it will make your nail polish start to bubble or ripple.
3. Freeze It Out
Next, on the list to know how to dry nail polish faster is to dip your fingernails in ice-cold water for 1-2 minutes. Before starting with the application process, take a bowl having enough water so that you can dip-in your nails. Add some ice-cubes in it and keep it aside. Once you are done with the application, let your nails air dry for 2 minutes and then dip-in for 1-2 minutes. The cold water will help to harden the nail polish and is a great way to get your nail polish to stick.

This spray not only helps to dry nail enamel but also helps to moisturize your cuticles.
5. Running Water
This method is one of my favourite ways to dry nail polish faster and I follow this method religiously. All you need to do is after the application of the last coat, wait for 2-3 minutes and run your fingertips under running water. While doing this process, make sure not to bump into anything.
