Cold Water for Wet Nail Polish

Ten years ago, I was fortunate enough to play Lucy Van Pelt in “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown” at Four County Players in Barboursville, VA.

On Thursday, the cast (now 10 years older) was invited back to the opening night of Snoopy at 4CP. In honor of this reunion, I decided to paint my finger nails yellow with the CB zigzag pattern. I do love my Peanuts, after all!

(Please ignore the messiness. I did clean them up after taking this picture.)

I thought I would try the drying technique where you put your fingers in cold water for 3 minutes to cure the polish. I’ll cut to the chase: it didn’t work well with a thick polish (the stripes smeared). Maybe I’ll try again with just regular polish.

On the other hand, I do know two products that work amazingly: Nicole (by OPI) Drying Drops and Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Anti-Chip Top Coat. I love both of these, and I use both of them (not at the same time). The Insta-Dri is a true top coat, while the Drying Drops are more like an oil. If I had to pick one, I love the 2-in-1 nature of the Insta-Dri Top Coat. It’s expensive but soooo worth it!
