cold water....fill sink, swish hands in it....sure i read somewhere that works.

but i have no idea how you go about drying your hands if it doesn't work

I've read the freezing water thing too. I mean to try but forget every time.

For future reference; Seche Vite. Right now cold water may work?

I put my hands in cold water every time I paint my nails. It does work.

Seche Vite.

Or flap your hands around like a fairy.

Any kind of oil really but cuticle oil would be the oil of choice. Water comes a close second.

I hate sèche vie, it goes gloopy too quickly. Big fan of OPI drip dry.

Hopefully, I bought a bottle of Seche Restore, which thinned my Seche Vite (and any gloopy bottles of nail varnish) beautifully.

I guess it's a good thing it dries out so fast....

Something that restores gloopy nail varnish sounds like A Good Thing. Must investigate!

Cold water after every coat, then flapping until they're dry... then a setting spray at the end.

If every layer is dry before applying the next you won't have "dry" polish that gets dented or smudged.
