Whether you’ve just gotten your nails professionally done of have opted to paint them yourself, it can always be difficult to determine when the nail polish is dry.

Two things usually happen to women waiting for lacquer to set – either ladies will swear that nails are dry and start doing tasks that end up smudging their polish or they will waste time sitting around waiting, long after the it has hardened.

Luckily, analysts at Glamour.com recently revealed a great way to check if your nail polish is dry.

“When you think they’re about done, very gently touch your pinky nails together,” the news source reports. “If you can feel the polish “grab” slightly, it’s not quite dry yet and you need to give it a few more minutes.”

Remember not to try this technique until you are positive that the lacquer has set. If nails are too wet, this trick will leave a dent in your nail polish. However, the news outlet promises that if nails are at least 80 percent dry, touching your pinky nails together will not leave a mark.
