Step 1: Fill a bowl with cool water and some ice cubes (not freezing–hello, frostbite–but slightly chilly).
Step 2: Paint your nails and let them air dry for one minute.
Step 3: Dunk your fingers in the bowl of cold water for two to three minutes. When you remove them, you’ll notice beads of water on top of the polish, meaning it’s firmed up and all done.
Step 4: Enjoy those 15 extra minutes we just saved you.
