Lock Your Nail Look Down With a Quick-Drying Topcoat!
When I’m having a good nail month (my nails are rarely in tip-top shape), I’m addicted to polishing them, switching up colors like they’re going out of style… which, given the rapid turnaround time of nail trends, they practically are going out of style. But I’ll be honest, despite my obsession I don’t really have that much time to dedicate to lacquering and re-lacquering my tips every other day or so (told you I was obsessed!), so as a result I often find myself polishing right before bed… and naturally, waking up to smudged, pillow-imprinted nails the next day. Yeah, yeah, my bad — but so many high-quality polishes just take way too long to dry! Motivated by my own slept-on self-manicures, I’ve rounded up some of the highest-rated quick-drying topcoats, which not only quicken up the application process by speed-drying your lacquer, but also provide a protective shield to preserve your polish to its full staying potential. That is, if you can commit to one shade rather than taking it off and switching colors before it even has a chance to chip!
