I’m so impatient that I’m never waiting long enough for my nail polish to dry. I’m sure I’m not the only one and we all know how messy it can get.
So, when I saw a drugstore product promising to dry nail polish in 60 seconds, I had to try it out. The Essence Nail Art Express Dry Drops come in a cute little bottle with a pipette. Personally, I like dropper applicators much more than brush ones that tend to get coloured when you use a brighter nail polish shade.
I have to mention that this product is not a top coat and doesn’t replace the top coat step, it just dries the nail polish quicker.
The way it’s used is basically, applying a drop or two onto freshly painted nails and waiting 60 seconds after that. I prefer to wait 2-3 minutes, it’s still much better than 30. I’d suggest to wait a little bit longer if you’re having more coats on or if they’re thicker because it does take more time if you’ve layered more product. The drops are a bit oily, so after the 2-3 minutes, I wash my hands and dry them carefully with a soft towel. I can really continue with my work or whatever I’m doing after that. I was impressed by how quickly my nails were dry and I didn’t ruin them.
I’ve been using this product for about two months and I’m really happy with it, it saves me a lot of time.
These dry drops also contain Vitamin E and Almond Oil, so your cuticles and nails are nourished and with added shine, as well.
If you’re looking for affordable quick dry drops that get the job done while conditioning your nails and cuticles, give this product a go.
