Fill up a wash basin with very cold water and after you have polished your nails, immerse them in the cold water for about 3 minutes. It makes the nail polish hard and stays that way.

I use a product called Out The Door. It is a super fast drying topcoat and you should be able to find it at Sally's Beauty Supply or even other beauty supple stores. It always works for me.

I was always frustrated after polishing my nails and waiting and waiting for it to dry but a friend told me this tip that works.

Put some ice into a cup of water and leave in the freezer. Once you are done polishing your nails, take the ice out of the water and stick your newly painted fingers into the ice cold water. The cold water seals the polish and dries it much quicker

Note: Don't leave ice cubes in the water so they don't accidentally scrape your polish job!

When your finger nail polish is partially dry, stick your fingers in a bowl of freezing cold water, it will speed up the drying process.
