    I use these because I usually end up painting my nails before going to bed, and fall asleep before they dry fully. Before I used drying drops, I'd wake up with hair and fabric imprints all over my nails, but now they're shiny and smooth in the morning. I love using these when I'm doing multiple polish coats because the drying time is just ridiculous otherwise.
