I have a TERRIBLE habit of painting my nails and then assuming they are dry.. just to find out they aren’t by bumping them against something and ruining the whole thing. I know you have done the same thing and it is infuriating. Well I have a little trick for you…. When you think they're about done, very gently touch your pinky nails together. If you can feel the polish "grab" slightly, it's not quite dry yet and you need to give it a few more minutes.
You will save yourself time and frustration… not to mention you will have a stunningly beautiful manicure.
