Can't Wait for Your Nails to Dry?

I was strolling down the cosmetic and nail aisle in Walgreens waiting for a prescription to be filled, looking for a nice new nail polish to buy when i spotted this bright red can.  I don't know about you, but i'm incredibly impatient waiting for my nail polish to dry.  I've been wanting to try OPI's Drip Dry Drops for quite some time, but just never got around to purchasing it.
I'd never heard of DeMert before, but for around $3, i thought i'd give this puppy a try.

DeMert's Nail Enamel Dryer is my recommended product of the week :)

It's so simple to use - the directions on the back say, "Hold can upright, at least for inches from nail.  Spray once lightly over each nail.  Repeat as necessary."  Pretty straightforward me thinks ;).  I usually spray this enamel dryer once inbetween coats and twice after the final coat.
There is a scent to it, but it's really not that bad.  Kind of chemical-ish/nail salon-ish (which i secretly enjoy, shhhh :).

Once thing i should mention is that right after you spray this on your nails, you'll get little dot marks in the polish (from the force of the spray), but those go away after a couple minutes.
After spraying this, my nail polish dries incredibly faster - even the softness of the freshly painted nails goes away soo much quicker (if you kinda get what i'm sayin'? :).  I find that when i paint my nails before going to bed and spray this, i don't wake up with lines from the sheets ruining them!

The only real downside is that i feel like it dulls down a bit of the shine of the polish, but it may just be the polish itself and not the spray causing this.


I recommend this to anyone who's impatient waiting for their polish to dry or who paints their nails on the go, it really does help :).
For such a fantastic price and nice quality of the product, i'll definately be repurchasing.
DeMert's Nail Enamel Dryer can be purchased at Walgreens or online.
