Quick Dry Nail Polish

These are two quick dry nail polish lines. They say they dry in a minute. I've never really timed it but they do dry pretty fast.

O.P.I has a branch of nail color line that I guess is more youth orientented call Nicole by O.P.I.  Nic's Sticks by O.P.I. is part of that line but is a quick dry nail polish.  There's only a dozen or so colors so you don't have too many options.  You can find them in most drugstore as well as Target & Walmart for around $6.99.  It comes in a tube that you pump and the color comes out at the tips where there is brush. Each tube contains 0.135 fl. oz. of polish.  Because it's such a small amount you will probably get a few uses for them. They are good for quick,  last minute nails.The stick as very easy to use and the color comes out very smoothly.  However, the brush isn't the softest so it might streak.  You have to becareful of that.  With their size and shape they are very portable.   

Pro: Portable, Quick Dry
Con: Limited Colors, Small Amount, Bad Brush
Buy Again: Maybe
Price: $

Maybelline Express Finish is a quick dry nail polish that they say dries in 50 sec.  It comes in over 20 different colors.  It cost between $4 to $5 at most drugstore, etc.  The bottle is 0.5 fl. oz like other nail polish unlike the Nic's Stick that's in a tube.  I use about 2 layers when I use this product and allow it to dry between layers.  Once you do one hand, by the time you move to the other it's already drying.  There's no long wait.  This is a great product for those who are always on the go.  Unless, you work a lot with your hand or bit your nails the polish will last for days without chipping.

Pro: Quick, Portable
Con: None
Buy Again: Yes

FYI: Sally Hansen has these same products with a dollar or two difference in price more or less depending on where you buy it.

Interesting content.

Just wanted to share some information that may help busy professionals caught up with work and who have less time to maintain their nails. You can try out gel nails which are now becoming a hot favorite as they are natural looking even without nail tips and the best way for nail enhancement. Also, if you are allergic to those strong smelling chemicals which you can experience with acrylic nails, then you should use gel nails as these are odorless.

However, when you are planning on gel nail application, make sure you approach a nail salon or a nail artist who is well versed with gel nails and is properly trained and mastered in gel applications. This will save you from problems that can arise with improper gel nail applications.
