I really, truly dislike doing my own nails, so I always put it off until Sunday night—usually about an hour before I go to bed. As a punishment for my laziness, I awake the next morning to a manicure embossed with deep, ugly sheet marks.
What I’m finally realizing is that when it comes to pulling off a late-night mani, there’s only ever been one polish I could trust: Revlon Top Speed Fast Dry Nail Enamel. I’ve been using it since the ’90s, and no other polish dries to such a hard, glossy finish so quickly. Seriously, this stuff dries as fast as Wite-Out. (It’s 60 seconds, according to Revlon.)
I just paint on my favorite color—the ’60s-style Peachy—before bedtime, then get down to the serious business of sleeping. When I awake, my nails are as smooth as porcelain.
