I bought this because i have a bad habit of painting my nails at night and having to stay up real late (til 2am) waiting for my 2-3 coats to dry. The first time i used it i was really excited to touch my nails after 6 minutes to feel that they were dry. After feeling and seeing my nails had dried i then jumped into bed. The next morning i woke up and i checked my nails and to my shock there were crease marks on my nails! I did give this product many other chances using 2-3 drops but sadly it was the same result. I think opi drip dry only hardens the polish enough to be gently touched.
I will say that it's great if you want to quickly dry your thin first coat.
This cost me AUD$23 from the airport and i definitely regret it.
After reading so many good reviews I decided to buy this. I used to use Seche Vite and I was not entirely pleased because the product dried up in the end, making it very thick and difficult to apply. Also it was difficult to get to the last rest of the product.
Anyways, I am not very content with this one, and when I have finished the bottle I will probably go back to Seche Vite or try something else.
It says on the instructions that your nail polish will be dry after five minutes. I experienced that it did feel smooth and non-sticky after 5-7 minutes, but that was only if you touched your nails very gently with your finger. The problem is that the Drip Dry does not harden the nail polish as well, so when you are on the go and getting dressed or whatever, and you accidently scratch the surface, it will still make a horrible dent on the nail polish, as if it was not completely dry. I have found that it helped to flush my nails under cold water for a couple of minutes, in order to harden the nail polish. I did not experience this problem with Seche Vite.
Saw this on YouTube, was highly skeptical about it but after reading the reviews on Amazon, I had to get a bottle.
I loved it! I painted my nails, went to bed & woke up with shiny nails. I was having a convo with my bf the next day & was talking with my hands (haha), he was so distracted by how shiny they were haha.
The ONLY thing I don't like is: I find that the more coats of polish you use, little bubbles will show.
I just painted my nails this beautiful pink for Easter, I wanted the color in the bottle.. so painted like 4 coats! I do have little bubbles, but plan to redo later today.
ps: You can get it for super cheap! I got the smallest bottle to try out, but because it was so inexpensive, I won't mind replacing it.
I've noticed that the longer I've had it, the more dull it is & longer it takes to dry. I don't know if it's from the product sitting there for a while or what the deal is, but I'm not getting the same results anymore :/ continued >>
I love love love this! just received it in the mail today after reading some reviews and ordering it off of amazon, but today i painted my nails china glaze's flip flop fantasy (new obsession) and i am in love.
This is such a great invention and im definitely gonna paint my nails more often. It dries them so quickly! Don't know about sheet marks before sleeping but apparently it helps prevent those too!
New HG! I like to layer diff np colors on top of each other to get the color &/or finish I want. These drops make the process so much easier. Now I'm able to paint my nails more frequently with less risk of "dragging". I do wait 5 mins btw coats just to be sure its dry but I no longer have to wait 10-15 mins btw coats. I love these time saving drops! continued >>
I was really skeptical about this product....but I had a giftcard to ulta and decided I would try the little bottle of it. I don't know why it took so long to try this.....its amazing! I painted my nails around 12:30am last night and went to bed around 1am and woke up with perfectly shiny nails WITHOUT those annoying sleep lines I usually get. Sometimes I would get the sleep lines even if I waited HOURS after painting my nails. This makes them dry to the touch so quickly, even if you paint 3 layers and topcoat. I painted my nails very quickly and kinda thick and it still did a fantastic job of drying them in no time.
I like this, it does what it says and is really easy to work with. It is an extra step, and that's the only reason I wouldn't buy it again, simply laziness! Dries really fast and moisturises my cuticles, so I would recommend buying this if its on sale or easy to get and you're just curious about it.
I hate this product! whenever i use it between final polish cote and top coat, it cause the polish to avoid certain places of my nail, because of its oily feel. hate it hate it hate it. waste of money, do not get!
I was really hoping to love this product. After reading so many raving reviews about drip dry on this site, I went straight to amazon and ordered one right away. I followed the directions to a tee, yet I now have gross-looking, lumpy bubbles on every single nail.
Yes, my nails did dry within a couple minutes, but the unsightly air pockets that formed on my nails after using this product makes it a complete deal breaker for me. Maybe mine is defective, but I will use this product again and update if there are any beneficial changes.
I am in love with this right now! I had pretty much given up on wearing nail polish because it just took too long to get right and I didn't have enough time to bother with a base coat, two coats of colour and a top coat, because it would never dry, so usually it ended up chipping and looking rubbish in just a couple of days, so I saved nail polish for special occassions...
However now that I have discovered quick dry top coats and these little wonder drops, I am a nail polishaholic! The wear now is fantastic and I don't have to sit around for hours not doing anything after I paint my nails or can do it before bed and have lovely looking nails all the time. I am still almost too scared to touch my nail polish after putting this on, because I expect it not to be dry like in the past, but it really does dry quickly, I love this product!
They are a bit expensive, but I think will last for ages so $22 well spent in my book!
