Review: Elegant Touch Rapid Dry For Nails

Beauty-wise, there’s little I love more than freshly painted nails. There’s just something about bold, bright nails that makes me feel ‘put-together’, but when you’re as clumsy as me it’s tricky to keep them looking great! My biggest problem is actually allowing my nails to dry fully without smudging them – why is it that as soon as my final coat of polish is applied, I suddenly think of 20 things I must do immediately?!

When I spotted the Elegant Touch Rapid Dry For Nails in a recent Glossybox, I was pretty sceptical. I wasn’t sure that it would work properly with just standard nail varnish, but wanted to give it a whirl!

It claims to dry nail polish in 60 seconds, leaving it touchable without causing smudges. It also contains Vitamin E to help care for your nails, which was hugely appealing to me – my nails are in contestant need of TLC.

I picked out one of my favourite pink nail polishes (I wanted to start out the year with a colourful pop!) and applied one coat. I was tempted to try the spray on the first coat, but decided to let it dry on its own. I wasn’t sure whether it would affect the smooth application of the second coat and didn’t want to mess up too much.

Once my first coat had dried fully, I popped on the second before spraying the product on to my nails. I was wary of applying it too soon after using the nail varnish, but threw caution to the wind (I know, I’m a maverick) and got straight on the case.

The formula was cooling yet felt quite moisturising (I assume that was the Vitamin E). I did the usual waft around of my hands after spraying, just to make sure they were totally dry. I lightly patted one nail after 60 seconds, and it still felt a little tacky, so I waited just a bit longer.

I would say that after 2-3 minutes, my nails were totally dry – there was a slight oily residue left, but with a quick wipe it was totally gone. I was incredibly impressed that this actually worked! For me, whether it takes 1 minute or 3, it still makes painting my nails so much easier and less time consuming. This is definitely a new essential for me!

The Elegant Touch Rapid Dry For Nails retails for around £3 from places like Boots and Missguided. I will definitely be picking up another once it runs out!
