My New Nail Polish Holy Grail

One of my pet hates is waiting for my nail varnish to dry. I just don't have the time or the patience. There have been many of times where I have given up and just taken the nail varnish off  as it was taking FOREVER to dry. Two nail polishes I bought recently are Essence 'Blue Addicted' and 'Time for Romance'. These are two gorgeous colours but take a few coats to build up their colour and hence take aaagesss to dry. I decided to put these nail varnish to the test with Essence 'Nail art Express Dry Drops'. 

I picked this bottle up in my local chemist for €2.29 in an attempt to cure my drying time dilemma. The bottle is designed with a dropper in the lid. As your nail varnish is drying you drop one or two drops to 'dry your nail polish within 60 seconds'. I was very doubtful of this but went ahead and painted my nails anyway. I first painted my nails black and put the drops on my nails. The drops felt very greasy on my hands but made the black dry very quickly. (Not quite the 60 seconds but i was impressed.) Now the next part was the real test... it was time for the glitter. 

I painted over the black in  'Blue Addicted' and 'Time for Romance'. Both the glitter nail varnishes usually take forever to dry but after a few minutes after the drops they were nearly dry. I was amazed. It usually took 20 minutes for them to get to that stage! 

I am very impressed and will definitely be using this more in the future!
