The truth: Features director Anna said: ‘You have to wait until your nails are touch-dry before you can even use them so that’s a bit disappointing. When you get them out of the packet they feel a bit rubbery and powdery. They fit well to your fingers and do let you do things like type while your nails get completely dry. They stay on better than you’d think, unless you’re trying to put the washing out or empty the dishwasher. My nail polish was pristine, but I’d take a quick drying topcoat any day, or even simply running them under cold water is more effective. TOP TIP: get them out of the packet before you paint your nails.
