There are all sorts of tips and tricks out that promise to help your nails dry faster.
Sure, you can try blasting your manicure with a cool shot from your blow-dryer or dipping your fingers in cold water. Some people even stick their hands in a freezer (what?!) or thin their nail polish so it dries faster. But, really, all of these options seem to have the great potential of messing with the results of the manicure. We'd rather go with a sure thing.
Your best bet is to try quick-dry top coats and quick-drying drops.
