While LA's got plenty of supreme pampering spots for painting your nails, there are those who find zen in old-fashioned DIY R&R. Whether you've procrastinated on booking a pro paint job or you're on-the-go beauty buff, LA-based OPI's lacquer drying drops are the solution for your last-minute mani. For less than the price of a cheap pedicure, this bottle will sooth your cuticles and give your polish a hard-as-nails finish in under 60 seconds.
A little goes a long way with this bottle (you only need one or two drops per nail) but if you're still looking to stretch your dollar further, the nail pros' RapiDry spray is also a budget-friendly (but longer drying) option.
