Waiting for my manicure to dry, along with taking gel polish off my toes and washing my hair, easily constitute my top three beauty bores. Anything that promises to speed any of the aforementioned up I’m willing to try. In fact when I was younger my neighbours would be able to tell when it was hair wash time for me due to my shrill screams which used to ring through the walls. I was such a lovely child. *raises eyebrow*
Mani setting times have been lowered somewhat in recent years due to my discovery of Seche Vite (and the fast-dry Mavala formula which is also pretty awesome), which despite the debate over its ingredient list, I still can’t help but to crack out from time to time because it turns the stuff from liquid to solid in literally seconds. But – there’s a secret second step which dials down the waiting time again. No it’s not the Mavala Spray which I’ve spoken of before. It’s a more compact and cuticle caring solution straight from our very own highstreet…
The Bourjois Instant Dry Nail Drops are what I’m on about; a pipette housed liquid that you drip onto your nail beds to dry things oh so quickly. I think you could use this sans top coat, but I like to throw one on anyway for a bit of extra shine. One drop per nail does the job and spreads to not only make your nails touch dry so quickly you’ll still walk around with your fingers splayed for fear that they’ll smudge, the oil texture nourishes your cuticles as well. A two-in-one? Now that I like. I’m pretty sure that I’ve heard people say that they’re converted to a Sally Hansen formula that does the same thing, but it’s always eluded me whenever I’ve searched for it in-store; but this is there in the stands, ready to go and solve our mani woes.
It’s only £5.99 and is ready to grab at ASOS now. You tempted? Now they just have to find a speedier method to scrape off gel polish and a dry shampoo that works infinitely and then I’ll be one very happy beauty bunny.
P.S) The polish pictured is Essie Style Hunter which I’ve been painting over the chips with for a whole week now because it really is just that lovely and I CBA to repaint them. In fact – add nail painting to the list.
