If DIY manicures are teaching us anything right now it's that patience is a virtue and a decent nail polish dryer is a must. Especially if you want to prevent smears and nicks ruining your otherwise impeccably lacquered nail.
Enter OPI RapidDry Spray Nail Polish Dryer, which has over 1,000 5-star reviews on Amazon and, consequently, keeps selling out.
OPI RapidDry Spray Nail Polish Dryer, £14.20, Feelunique
Truth be told, with so many incredible nail bars out there it's been a long time since most of us have attempted our own at-home manicure. Which is why this hero product has possibly been overlooked or ended up in a shoebox with the rest of your polishes.
But Covid-19 has changed everything and now that nail bars have had to close their doors, it's left many of us with nails in desperate need of some TLC.
To give you a hand (pardon the pun) OPI RapidDry nail spray speeds up drying time to a just few minutes. The pump-spray bottle mists nails without mess - this is important as the force of regular aerosol spray versions can actually smudge your nail colour.
Spray onto each nail 45 seconds after applying the last coat of polish to avoid bubbles forming. Then it's just a matter of waiting a few minutes for the surface of your nail to fully dry to a hardened, glossy finish.
It really is that simple and knocks spots off those old-school electric nail dryers that were time consuming and the equivalent of a barely-powered hotel hair dryer.
Then carry on with the rest of your day - whether that's typing on a keyboard or swiping the best Black Friday deals.
Who knows, with products this speedy, you might even keep up with the at-home manicures even when pandemic is over?
