Rated 4.61 out of 5 stars
I purchased this product after a nail mech used it on me during a mani pedi. I ALWAYS mess up my nails when I do them myself no matter how hard I try. The first time I used DripDry I waited 60 seconds and then went about my day doing dishes, cleaning the house, washing my hair and my nails still looked fabulous. My nails looked so great that they looked like they were professionally done. I used this with other product lines (Orly base coat, Essie polishes and top coat) and it worked just great.
I was so excited about this product since all the other reviews are awesome and it seems too good to be true. Now that I'm a new mom I need a quick way to pain my nails at night before bed.. I tried this for the first time last night, says it should be completely dry in 5 minutes. But I sat for an hour after before going to bed. Woke up this morning to scratches and smudges in my polish. Not cool.. I have better luck with other top coats. Very disappointed! Especially since I bought the $26 dollar size!

Used the stopwatch function on my phone to make sure I waited 1 min after painting my nails to apply and another 5 mins until trying to do anything and it worked perfectly. I agree with other reviews that it is a high price for a small container, but if you don't have time to sit & let your nails dry it is definitely worth the expense. Make sure you apply a drop in the center of your nail so it covers the largest surface area and minimizes waste.

After the owner paints my nails, I do not like using the drying machine. A couple of drops of this and I am bone dry.

Buy this! It works just as described!

This is my go-to product for at home manicures and pedicures. These drops help speed up the drying time. This is one of my favorite products!

I have used this for years. Love it
Lisa from Pensacola
It works quickly. However, I felt like it took the shine off my nails and made them look matte like after they dried. Also, I think it should have been a bigger size for the cost. You waste a lot of the product dropping it on your nails because it's an oily texture like cuticle oil.
But it definitely dries my nails quicker.

These drying drops are the BEST. The dropper makes them so easy to apply, and they are quick drying.

This is amazing! This is my first makeup review! I just can't keep this a secret! I've tried everything I could get my hands on to help my nails dry quickly. I get so frustrated when I mess up a nail waiting for them to dry. I never have to worry about that anymore. Love, love, love!

I probably wouldn't bother painting my nails anymore if I didn't have these quick dry drops. I apply one or two drops to each nail after I'm done painting, and after one minute I feel confident enough to wash my hands without fearing that the paint job will be ruined. To be safe, I always give it at least 3-5 minutes before doing anything that really might ruin my nail polish. I used up my bottle of this product a few days ago and will definitely be repurchasing.

I would absolutely give this product 5 stars if they didn't evaporate in the bottle. I work in healthcare and cannot have polish on my nails while working. So I don't use these drying drops every week. But I only got 2 uses out of a whole bottle last time! Makes them quite pricey to use.

I use this product with Essie, Maybelline and my favorite polish Sinful, it works great everytime. I am not a person that can just sit for 20 minutes and not touch anything. It's just not in my nature so this product is a godsend. I've never had my polish just peel off afterwards. My manicures last atleast 1 week and more often 2. I apply a base coat, 2 coats of nail polish, sometimes 2 coats of a sheer glitter and then Essie top coat. I won't go without this product unless I am forced and then my nails won't be painted.

My mom used this all the time when I was younger and now it's what I use every time I paint my nails!

I do not have $ to spend on these sort of things yet this item is well worth the savings to have.

After 15 minutes of waiting, I got my nail dryer out so I could get them dry. Will not buy again.

Love this stuff, it really works. Especially if you use with other OPI products

This is the drying process you've been dreaming of! I started doing my own nails at the start of the pandemic and I have gone through Essie's quick-drying top coat, OPI's quick-drying top coat and another brand that I can't think of the name but none of them compare to this. I do 4 solid layers of polish; a base, 2 coats of color and a top coat and this had them all dry to the touch within a minute and solid dry within 10-15 miniutes.

I wanted to love this and I do love this for drying my nails BUT my polish peels off now. Will be returning
osnow from Atlanta
it's amazing! it works so well! so worth the price! a drop or two is really all it takes! if you do you your nails at home you NEED this!!
Shawna from Iowa
I was skeptical because I've tried everything. Worth every penny!! I did the ultimate test, used the restroom, wearing jeans, no smudges, creases or gouging! Will never be without again.
Daisy from TX
Excellent product...reasonable price!

I waited at least 15 minutes after applying the drip dry drops to do anything. I cut an apple and just now, after I finished eating it, I noticed that 4 of my fingernails are smudged and need to be redone. So it definitely doesn't completely dry after 5 minutes! After 15 minutes my nails felt dry to the touch, but they obviously weren't completely dry. Not worth the money! I think that the Essie Speed Dry works better/faster and costs half as much.

The drops work so fast! 5 mins and totally dry! I do base, two coats of color, top coat and then use drying drips. Perfect every time!

These are my goto drying drops. Really works to completely dry polish within 5 minutes.
