Smudged those freshly painted nails again?!

Don't you hate it when you wait over 30 minutes for your nails to dry and they still get messed up?! It makes me just want to take all the nail polish off and forget about it! Now, I found out a great tip that has helped my nails dry faster. All you need is a bowl or sink full of ice cold water. Then you just soak your nails in it for about 15-30 seconds. This technique basically hardens or freezes the nail polish. Once your done, pat your hands dry. Then apply your clear coat and repeat the soaking process. When your all finished, your nails won't be fully dry, but they will be hard enough that they won't smudge! Just be careful because if touch the top of your nails too hard it could leave finger prints! If you want to make your hands softer, when soaking your nails in a bowl of water add 3/4 milk and only 1/4 water, but still keep it cold. Then soak for 10-15 minutes. This will make your hands remarkably soft. Have a wonderful day and please leave some feedback! I love hearing from everyone!

Or you can put your hands in the freezer for a 30 seconds. That works also.

I found this tip in a book and tried it. it didn't work for me. I bought 3,2,1 dry salon nail dryer. I really like it. You can get it at any drug store.
