Don’t forget to add a layer of alessandro’s top coat to ensure long-term protection from chipping and peeling.

Birchbox Breakdown

We’ve lost count of how many times we’ve given ourselves a mani at night, only to wake up in the morning to find the wrinkles in our sheets imprinted into our otherwise perfect paint job. For those of us who’d rather avoid such mishaps, alessandro Express Polish Dry is the perfect addition to our manicure arsenal. The clear liquid treatment dries polish in a flash.

How it Works

Without getting into all the nitty gritty details, we learned that this treatment speeds up the evaporation process of the liquid in your nail polish. Once that’s all gone, you’re just left with perfectly lacquered nails!

How to Use

Wait one minute after you’ve painted your nails, then apply one or two drops to each nail at the base of the cuticle. Allow drops to flow down to the tip of nails. Polish will dry almost immediately!

Isopropyl Alcohol, Acetone, Ethyl Ether, Parfum (Fragrance), Amyl Cinnamal, Benzyl Salicylate, Linalool, Eugenol

Really happy!
Purchased

I'm so happy I decided to try this when I had some points I wanted to cash in! After having a baby, I no longer have time to wait ages for my nail polish to dry... but I still deserve pretty nails! Rather than waiting 20 minutes or more for some of my polishes to dry, I can use this alessandro Express Polish Dry after only 5ish minutes, and it dries my mani rock hard in no time. I do need to make sure that your polish is at least semi-dry before using this, or the effectiveness is significantly decreased, but overall this is an awesome way to speed up the drying time and get back to snuggling my little girl!

The little dropper applicator is super clever, and it leaves behind a pleasant floral scent - it might be lilac? I will absolutely be grabbing more of this when it runs out!

Excellent!

It works extremely well! It dries my nail polish very quickly. Don't think I can paint my nails without having this. I cannot recommend it enough!

Very effective

I bought this after getting frustrated with my nails smudging. The reviews led me to this product and it's great! I recommend applying after each coat of polish - keep the coats thin

Works well--after letting nails dry a bit.
Purchased

This is a really nice product. I have noticed that it lessens the drying time of my polish. However, it is important to note that you cannot use this directly after painting your nails. You should wait about 2-3 minutes after applying your top coat/last coat to use this. After using, I find that it takes about 5 minutes for my nails to feel completely dry. This product has a nice scent as well, although it may be slightly strong for some people.

This is the first time I've purchased a product of this kind and I must say I am impressed! Only a drop or two is required and your polish dries almost instantly!! Will definitely be purchasing more!

I'm always so crunched for time that I find myself only being able to paint my nails shortly before bed. Without a drying product, I basically can't paint my own nails. But this stuff works incredibly well and stands up to sleeping with freshly painted nails.

Didn't noticably speed drying
Purchased

I don't think this product makes my nail polish dry any quicker than without it. I thought it was no longer tacky, but it didn't harden at all, and led to me smudging my nail polish. Not super effective...

Great stuff!!

This little number does exactly what it says it does. It definitely speeds up the drying process ten fold! Love this stuff and highly recommend. Works better than Seche Vite, which was my favorite until now! A little goes a long way!

OK

I was very hopeful about this product after reading the reviews as I would love to wake up without sheet marks on my nails! I'm not sure if I am doing something wrong...but they are still there. This does not seem to speed up my nail dry time.

I LOVE this product! I use it every single time I paint my nails and it really does dry them in an instant. My nails never any smudges, imprints, smears, etc. when I use this product (which is all the time!).
