Does Fast Dry Nail Polish Really Work?

Will this fast dry nail polish pass the test?

Will this fast dry nail polish pass the test?

One thing about me you may or may not know: I’m not good at sitting still. I’m crazy impatient and I tend to fidget. A lot. That’s why I was so excited to see this new fast dry nail polish in the drug store.

Every time I do my nails at home, I screw them up by texting someone, trying to tie my sneakers, or doing some other random (and probably unnecessary) thing before they’ve had a chance to fully dry. Revlon Top Speed Nail Enamel promised that it would be dry in five minutes. “Five minutes! I think I might be able to sit still for that long!” I hopped to the register like a bunny and was on my way, a pretty bottle of blue nail polish in my bag.

My fast dry nail polish chipped really fast.

Busted--but so easy to fix!

Now that I’ve tried it, I’m going to give you the scoop. I like it! It really does dry in five minutes, which means that for the first time in my life, I can actually do my own nails without looking like a kindergartener hopped up on Jujubes. Woohoo! I’ve even gotten compliments on the polish.

The downside (there always is one, right?) is that it chips pretty much right away. Like, maybe a day after you’ve painted your nails. It’s annoying, but I have to say that since it does dry so fast, it’s not a big deal to have to do a quick touch-up on your way out the door.

Would I buy it again? Yes! Do I think you might want to check it out, too? Yes–but make sure you keep it on hand to cover those chips. You’ll need it!

    Beauty Secrets top coat fast finish polish dryer. I’ve read some reviews that didn’t speak highly of it, but it my opinion it’s pretty promising compared to others. I think I got mine at Sally’s, and I use it every time I paint my nails.
