Type and Dry!

A couple weeks ago I Snap-chatted an image of my “busy girl manicure” and got quite few questions about it so I thought I would do a little blog post on one of my very favorite life hacks!

To be honest with you, I feel like there is pretty much NEVER a good time to paint your nails. I mean, when do you ever have an idle hour to have them sit and dry? NEVER. 

Which leads me to my lightbulb moment….

A couple of months ago I had juuuuust finished painting my nails when something big came up in my inbox that required my immediate attention. I had no choice but to head back into my office and log into my e-mail! I realized after I was done solving the problem that my nails were completely dry and I didn’t have even one little tiny ding in my polish… it was AMAZING! Problem solving and manicure perfection all wrapped into one!

So ever since then, I have solely relied on my “busy girl manicure”! I never paint my nails if I know I am going to be away from my desk, or I can count on them smudging. So this is my new go-to. I pour myself a cup of coffee, take about a 10 minute break and paint my nails, and go right back to work! 

…It’s kind of the best life hack ever, don’t you think?!

  1. Love this idea! Infact I used to do this all the time as a student! Nothing beats writing boring papers when you can throw a coat on every 20 mins or so!
