There are several ways you can make your nail polish dry faster:

  1. Apply thin coats: Thick layers of nail polish take longer to dry. Apply thin, even layers to speed up the drying process.
  2. Use a quick-drying top coat: Top coats specifically formulated to dry quickly can help speed up the drying time of your nail polish.
  3. Use a fast-drying nail polish: Look for nail polish brands that advertise fast drying times. These are typically formulated to dry quickly.
  4. Use a nail dryer or fan: Using a nail dryer or fan can help accelerate the drying process. Point the dryer or fan directly at your nails to speed up evaporation.
  5. Apply cold water: After applying your nail polish, dip your nails in a bowl of cold water. The cold temperature helps to set the polish and dry it faster.
  6. Use a drying spray: Some drying sprays are designed to speed up the drying time of nail polish. Spray it on your nails a few minutes after applying the polish.
  7. Avoid humidity: High humidity can slow down the drying process of your nail polish. Try to apply your polish in a well-ventilated area with low humidity.

Remember that even with these techniques, nail polish may still take some time to completely dry and harden. It's important to be patient and avoid smudging or damaging your nails while waiting for them to dry.

Additionally, here are a few more tips to help your nail polish dry faster:

Apply a thin layer of base coat before applying the nail polish. The base coat acts as a primer, helping the polish adhere to the nails better and dry faster.

Avoid applying thick layers of nail polish. Thick layers take longer to dry, so apply two to three thin coats instead.

Apply a layer of quick-drying nail polish drops or oil on top of your nail polish. These products help to speed up the drying time and add shine to your manicure.

Avoid touching or moving your nails as much as possible after applying the polish. Touching the wet polish can cause smudging and prolong the drying time.

Try using a UV or LED nail lamp. These lamps are commonly used in salons and can help to cure and dry the nail polish quickly.

Consider using a fast-drying nail polish formula. Many brands now offer quick-drying formulas that dry in just a few minutes.

Remember to give your nails adequate time to dry completely. Even if the polish feels dry to the touch, it may still be soft and prone to smudging. Wait at least 10 to 15 minutes before touching anything or applying any pressure to your nails to ensure they are fully dry.
