I'm just wondering how long it would take to do the whole tutorial in real time. 2 or 4 hours? If I didn't have a nail dryer or brush handy, I bet it would take a longer time to achieve. But it does look nice and have some great tips! If only there were nail dryers to help dry regular nail polish faster. I don't like to wait too long. At most, would take me 1-2 hours if I want it to be really perfect. If not, it would be lesser time than that.
You can also get your nails to look more glossy by holding your nails upside-down while your top coat is drying. That deposits most of the top coat on the apex of the nail which will leave your nails looking very shiny. This is a tip I learned with gel polish, but I have used it with regular polish also. 🙂🙃
