Make your own nail dryer using an electric fan

With my new polish dryer, I get salon-quality results every time I paint my nails.

Like many other young women, I love the luxurious look of a manicure. There's nothing better than heading into a nail salon, then walking out a half hour later with perfect, shiny nails that stay that way for a week or two. But, since I'm just starting out in the professional world, I don't have money to spend on regular manicures, and instead opt for the at-home version.

Since one bottle of good quality nail polish costs less than one manicure, painting my nails at home has saved me a lot of money without sacrificing the look of my fingernails. But for me, the hardest part of painting my own nails is letting them dry without ruining them.

After getting a manicure in a nail salon, I will walk over to a drying station where I keep my hands still while a fan blows air to expedite the drying process, but because I don't have one of these handy contraptions at home, I often end up smudging a still-wet nail and ruining my manicure. When this happened to me last night, I decided that I just had to have an at-home nail dryer.

I looked it up online, and found out that it is fairly easy to make your own nail drying station at home. All you need is a small electric fan.

I happened to have a table top fan that I wasn't using, and it worked perfectly. I set it up on my desk, and adjusted it so that it was pointing at my fingernails. Then I simply sat there for 10 minutes or so while the fan went to work drying my nails. Just a few minutes later, I had a fully dry manicure just like from the nail salon!
