Manic(ure) Monday: 80ies Party + Quick Dry


I decided to apply my new purple nail polish with some glitter top coat. To achieve the result I worked with sticky tape. The final result reminded me of the 80ies but also a bit of Nicki Minaj because of her pink/purple lipstick! 




Extra manicure tips:

- Don't blow your nails dry as your warm breath will just lengthen the drying process.
- Put your nails in a bowl with ice cold water (but take care when toweling your hands).
- Use special quick dry topcoats as for example Essie's "Good To Go!"
- Rather apply two thin layers of nail polish than one thick layer because it can't dry properly.
- You can be sure that your nails are dry when they don't smell of nail polish anymore.

Do you have other quick drying tips you want to share with us?

  9. Those are great drying tips! I actually never knew that blowing on them can make the drying time longer. I'll have to try that ice water trick! Love that color purple too. Very pretty! <3
