When applying nail polish at home, the real problem is getting it to dry. When you are in a salon, you have time to sit back, relax and maybe enjoy some music or a massage while you wait. But when you are at home, and the children are calling, or the housework seems countless, the nail polish does not dry out on time.

A method that women probably used before UV lamps will reduce your manicure time by at least 20 minutes. Do you want to try? You have nothing to lose. And if you’re wrong, at most, you’ll end up with the nail polish to apply a second time.
Ice Water Trick
The ice water trick is super simple. All you have to do is fill a small bowl about halfway with cold water and add a few ice cubes if you want. When you’re ready to dry your nails, dip your freshly painted nails into the bowl, one hand at a time, for five minutes each. Tap your nail lightly on one corner when you’re done to make sure the polish has dried.
That’s all! I hope this advice helps you save precious time but also allows you to have a perfect manicure. There is nothing worse than chipped nails or cracked paint.
