Quick way to polish and dry your nails at home instantly

Woman who paint their nails will know the feeling of frustration of having to wait for  their  nail polish to dry after a nice manicure.

How can you multi-task and save time right after your fabulous nail job? Although patience is a virtue, we women-on-the-go don’t always have the time to ensure that our nails are completely dry before stepping out.

No need to worry, you can minimize time at this mundane but necessary task with an easy trick:

Step 1: Fill a bowl with cool water and some ice cubes. Coldness makes molecules stick together more closely.

Step 2: Paint your nails and let them air dry for one minute.

Step 3: Dip your fingers in the bowl of cold water for two to three minutes. When you remove them, you’ll notice beads of water on top of the polish, meaning it’s firmed up and all done. The coldness turns the liquid polish into solid instantly.

Step 4: You are ready to go.

Note: On the reverse side, when you put your nails in hot water just a few minutes after they have been dried, your nail polish will peel off.
