Essence Nail Art Express Dry Drops Review

Essence Express Dry Drops
Essence says "sometimes every second counts. With Express Dry Drops, nail polish dries in 60 seconds! The fast drying formula includes vitamin E and almond oil to nourish nails and cuticles." These drying drops contain 8ml (.27 fl oz) of product and costs $3 at Ulta. Essence is cruelty free. The Nail Art Express Dry Drops are made in Poland.

Essence's Nail Art Express Dry Drops come in a little glass bottle with a white dropper top. The product name is printed on the frop of the bottle, directions are on the back  in several languages. Packaging is not recyclable.

Essence says you only need 1 or 2 drops of this clear, watery solution to completely dry your nails in 60 seconds or less! I've tried a couple products similar to this one, and none of them ever work - so I'm pleased to announce that the Express Dry Drops work! They totally do the thing they're supposed to do! I apply one drop on my nails and two on my thumb over freshly applied nail lacquer and let the Express Dry Drops evaporate off and work their magic. These drying drops have a slightly oily consistency, which is great because it nourishes cuticles, but it also makes doing anything with even more cumbersome (my nails are already wet - now they're wet AND greasy!). Essence says their Express Dry Drops will dry your nail color in a minute, but I wouldn't say its quite that fast - I'd say its more like 2.5 minutes, but that's still faster than without! Aside from helping to speed up the trying process, these drops don't seem to effect my polish in any way, positive or negative. Unlike the other drying drops that I've tried, which usually smell like peppermint, the Express Dry Drops have no scent.

Essence's Express Dry Drops are good stuff! They're cheap and effective - there isn't much else to say about them honestly. If you want a product that'll cut the time it takes your polish to dry, pick the Nail Art Express Dry Drops up.
