With nails taking much of the beauty spotlight this season, a picture-perfect polish is truly crave-worthy. So, try this extremely popular backstage trick when you want to glam up but don’t have the time to sit around watching nail polish dry.
Take a clean nail polish brush (I repurpose them from empty bottles, leaving them in acetone overnight to remove old polish) and gently layer on a thin coat of olive oil on each freshly painted nail. No brush available? Simply drip small drops of the oil onto the nails. This will speed up the drying process while also protecting your fresh manicure from accidental smudges.

I usually use a fast drying top coat. Works perfect! I have heard about dipping your nails into ice water to speed up drying, but never about using olive oil! Going to try this just for fun! Btw if anyone is looking for a good fast dry topcoat I highly recommend Essie Good to Go. It is worth every penny!
