Best Way to Dry Your Nails

Nail care is important especially to us ladies. Well polished and colorful nails always look good. We really want our nails and toes to look good and will seek out the best colors to make them pop, the best manicurist to get them looking polished and other many ways. When i don't get my nails and toes done professionally which i wish i could every time, I try my best to take off some time during my busy week and do a spa treatment.

I buff them back and forth to get in the nail corners and make them super pretty, file them, clean the cuticles to give them that clean base then give them a good scrub with pumice.After cleaning them properly, a good manicure and pedicure does come in handy. But it looks like when i apply the nail polish to my nails , the part that gets to me is the drying them. You think they are dry and then you touch something and there is a smudge on you beautiful nails.

I have tried drying with a fan, sprays, even run cold water over my nails to dry them. But all they do is shorten my polish lifespan and thus ruin the nails. I found out the best nail tip to drying my nail polish which is to let them air dry them which could take for about 15mins to 25 mins. I realized this makes the color stay on longer and appear fresh looking with a good shine. You will just need some patience to get through those minutes or you could watch television but avoid touching anything as this could lead to smudging of the nail polish.

When i tired the sprays, the nail polish would chip off faster but by air drying them they chip off after a while which is good. I realized that was what the manicurist used to do when i would get my nails and toes done professionally. She would let them air dry as she talked away while doing her job. Letting them air dry will ensure the color stay on longer and thus prevent your polish from getting dull. For extra protection, you can apply a nail hardener which will act as an shield between your polish and your air, dust, water or anything else that can make them chip faster. Dub some hand or foot cream on your hands and feet for a moisturizing effect. Let you manicure and pedicure look just as fresh on day ten as it did on day one.

Treat you nails like a pro!!!

It's the season for wearing sandals, so pretty feet are important. I groom my own feet, and really enjoy it. Like to use a pretty color on my toenails. Waiting for it to dry is definitely a drag. Worth it though.

Interesting article! My sister and niece get their nails done. It does look nice. I haven't - nor have I done them myself much. I remember trying a few times loooonnnng ago and my nails turning yellow and falling apart. Guess the chemicals back then didn't agree with me. I put olive oil on again tonight. Learned here at Street Articles that nails and skin like olive oil. Sure has been a great hint. Will think on the polishing... :-)
