With only so many hours in the day, there’s a high probability that you often yearn to figure out ways to minimize your time with even the most mundane (but necessary) tasks, such as how to make your nails dry faster.

Although patience is a virtue, we women-on-the-go don’t always have the time (or patience) to ensure that our nails are completely dry before it’s time to get on with the day.

While a fabulous nail color or design will surely make you stand out in a great way, having smudged or smeared nails will likely warrant some unwanted side-eyes and attention.

So, before you pick up that new nail polish color, take a look at these helpful tips on how to make your nails dry faster.2

1. Hair Dryer

Curious to know how to make your nails dry faster with a simple beauty tool you probably already have handy?

Cue the hair dryer.

When someone finally told me about this tip, my first thought was "Why didn’t I think of that?!" Possibly the most effective way of drying your nails faster, a standard hair dryer is the perfect tool for keeping pesky nicks and smudges from ruining your freshly painted nails.

Set your hair dryer to its lowest or coolest setting and be sure not to get too close.

A standing hair dryer contraption works best, but if you don’t have one, use caution when drying each hand.

2. Cold Water

As crazy as it sounds, this age old tip does the trick every time.

Paint your nails with your favorite color then submerge your hands in (or under) cold water.

Allow your nails to dry in front of a fan for a couple of minutes, add a top coat, and then repeat the cold water-fan process.

Use your best judgment to determine how many times you need to repeat these steps before your nails are fully dry.2
