Who doesn’t need their nails to dry faster? If you’re like me and regularly wake up with weird creasing and indentations in your nail polish then you probably don’t have the patience to let them dry all the way. I paint my nails once or twice a week but I simply cannot resist immediately typing on my keyboard or eating food right after I’ve painted them. Today, all of us antsy mcpantsies will take a stance and find a way to make our nail polishes dry quicker because, let’s be honest, none of those “quick dry drop” things really work and they also make your nail polish chip faster.

Nail art blogger Varnished Valkyrie always wanted to see what would happen if she layered her nails with as much polish as she possibly could, and one night she finally got bored enough to actually do it. Here’s the finished result: 53 coats deep. It’s weirdly impressive, right? Random thought: I might need to add 23 more manicure ruining tips to this list, just to keep up with this rapid progress.

We’re a bit obsessed with the Illuminati around here (hey, Jay and Bey!), so the idea of a Secret Society mani is right up our alley. Designed by Rita Remark, the manicure is an interpretation of what a secret society language might look like. Go with Rita’s designs or make one up on the fly! [Windsor Star]
I’ve been a fan of Sinful Colors nail polish for a long time, for multiple reasons: one being the fact that it only costs $2 a bottle, another being that it is sold near the beauty counter at Walgreens, which means I buy like three bottles of it per week. Last night I layered SC’s bright blue “Most Sinful” polish under a topcoat of the glittery “Hottie” and was delighted to find it created a sort of galaxy print effect. I shared a pic of my surprise space mani on our Instagram (by the way, are you following us on Instagram? You totally should be! We’re @thefrisky), but I thought it was also finally time to give my favorite cheapie nail polish brand a proper review.

I literally squealed with glee when I saw this chalkboard manicure, and I was even more excited when I learned it wasn’t some exclusive runway design, but actually a nail art kit available at Sephora. You start with a matte black polish that’s like chalkboard paint for your nails (see also: Pinterest’s wet dream), then once that dries, add some colorful designs with one of the colorful chalk pens, and seal it with a clear top coat. Love. [$25, Sephora]
