Hi everyone, my name is Joi, licensed nail technician. And, I want to show you today how to dry three-layered nail polish fast. So, I have a couple things that I’m going to be using in addition to my polishes. I have a quick-dry drop here, and I also have a enamel dryer. So, a couple of things that you want to remember when you’re trying to make sure that you dry your polish quickly, you don’t get any smudges, are you want to use a quick-dry top coat - that’s going to be your first step. A quick-dry top coat is actually different than regular top coat. There are actually ingredients in there that help them dry quite a bit faster. Okay, so, I’m just going to apply that to the nail, and of course going all the way to the end, and sealing the edges. Okay. So, the next thing that you can do is you can use a quick-dry drop. So, with that, you want to hold the nail downward and start at the cuticle, and just place a drop or two on, and let it roll down to the edge of the nail. That’s basically just going to cause a hard shell to form. It’s going to start with the top layer – the top coat, and then it’s going to go down and dry the color and the base coat in that order. Okay. That’s probably the quickest way. The next way that you can use is you can take a nail enamel dryer, which is basically just an aerosol spray, and you just want to hold it maybe about six inches away and just slightly mist. And, you want to do this after your nails have been dry for about a minute or so, so that you don’t get any droplets or smears on your polish. Okay. So, those are some ways that can kind of speed up your nail drying and protect your manicure. So, thank you all for watching, and again, my name is Joi, enjoy your day!
