Beauty 911: How To Dry Your Nails Faster

woman doing nailsHow many times have you painted your nails only to have them ruined minutes later? We’ve all been there.

I don’t know about you, but I hate waiting around for my nails to dry. Sometimes I’m in a rush and just wish they would magically dry instantly. Okay, maybe that’s a little unrealistic, but a girl can dream.

After painting them, let them air dry for a few minutes. Then submerge them in ice-cold water for three minutes. This should be enough time for the nail polish to harden and give you dry nails!
