If you paint your nails with regular nail polish at home, you probably know how hard it is to wait for it to dry completely. It is advised to apply the varnish in stages: several thin layers to make the color more even and saturated.

Problems often arise with drying: it would seem that the surface is finally dry, but as soon as you catch your fingernail, you have to start the painting process all over again. An unusual life hack that will speed up the drying of the varnish is gaining popularity on the Internet.

Of course, you can walk around with your fingers open and blow on your nails, or you can dry them in the fresh air. The latter is quite risky, by the way, because dust and dirt can stick to the surface.

Social media advises trying a very interesting method. Those who have already tried the life hack say that the varnish dries instantly.

Dip your painted nails in ice water. Important note: the water should be not just cold, but ice cold, so you should throw in a few ice cubes.

Experts say that dipping your nails in ice water will harden the polish immediately.

Another caveat: this life hack will work if you cover your nails with only a thin layer of varnish. In the case of multi-layer application, the hardness will be superficial, that is, ice water will speed up the drying process, but you will have to wait for a more lasting effect.
