1 TIP for quickly dried nail polish

My sister shared with me 1 great tip considering nail polishes and I thought I would share it with you.
The tip gave us an expert for polishes for some saloon. I didn't know for this trick so I was really impressed when I tried it out. It really does dry your nail polish more quickly than usual.

When you're in a hurry it's quite difficult to dry your recently applied polish. So the trick is:
 After you applied nail polish, go to the sink and dip your nails in COLD WATER. NOT in the water directly from pipe (running water) but in a sink ful of water. Than leave your hands or finger tips in it for about a minute (or how long do you want). The longer you leave it in, the drier will the nail polish be.

I also noticed that the cold water corrected some of the mistakes I made when I was applying nail polish.
I also tested it in the shower. After I dipped my nails in a cold water I went in a shower and used hot-mild water ( I didn't go directly but after 5 minutes). The nail polish didn't ruined like always ( I never find the right timing to wait after I paint my nails) and stayed the same. I can't guarantee it but it works for me! 

So…when you don't have time… you know what to do ;)
