Questions & Answers for SEPHORA by OPI Nail Colour Drying Drops

Question
Does it use a dropper?
The online item shows an eyedropper top, but the one I bought doesn't have that. It's just a cap. It was awful to use, because the liquid just dribbles out of the bottle and gets everywhere.

Does it actually come with a dropper? Should I just get one anyway to make it easier to use?

The bottle should definitely come with a dropper inside the cap that requires no assembly. I have been through several bottles and have always had the dropper. If you are reluctant to return the product, a dropper would be an excellent choice to not waste the valuable product. Droppers can be found in pharmacies and the medical supply sections of drugstores.

Sorry you had that problem... it has worked great for me so far. I bought this product in the store and it came with the dropper! The dropper is a must as it would be really hard with wet nail polish on to have to try to poor it out or something. The dropper it comes with makes it really user friendly. I would return it and ask for one with the dropper as it should have it. :)

Hi,

Check to see if there's a dropper in the box. You have to attach the dropper. If there wasn't a dropper, the store should be able to give you a new one. You should use the dropper to control the drop.

Smudged Nails.
OK, so the weirdest thing happened to me. I got a manicure, 2 coats of polish, clear finish polish then I waited about 2 minutes use the drying drops sat for prob like 7-10 more minutes under the dryer, came home typed a bunch then 2 hours later, took a hot shower and my nails totally smudged! This has NEVER happened to me, I mean it was 2 hours after my manicure! It was the first time I used this stuff, could it have been the OPI stuff or maybe just a bad polish? My nails were totally fine and dry till I showered. Anybody have any ideas? Thanks!

I actually had the same problem with this product myself. I put a base coat, a light matte color coat, and a light glitter coat and after about an hour of waiting, I was getting heading for work and 8 out of 10 nails smudged big time. I was also using nail polish from Sephora OPI. I had to stop on my way to work to the drugstore to purchase nail polish remover. I also left a review of this. Anyway, I returned the product

I don't think it was the drops, I washed my face abotu 30 minutes after apply polish and the drops and had no smudging. Did you put lotion on your hands at the beginning of the manicure? That could prevent the polish from setting. If you put lotion on your hands, try using nail polish remover to take it off your nails before applying your base coat.

I have never had ANY polish smudge because of the brand; however, it sounds like there was a lot of product on there (which is pretty much completley normal). Nails actually need hours and hours to dry, so a hot shower in even 2 hours can be detrimental. Try soaking the dry nails in super cold water to set them after all steps are complete. Most mistakes are made, especially on pedis after "thinking" that the nails are dry enough.

Hi,

If your manicure was in a shop, this might apply: A manicurist I know told me that some of the places where she's worked dilute the polish itself with a tiny bit of nail polish remover to make the polish in the bottle last longer (and in some cases, to make the manicure itself last for a shorter time so customer will come back more frequently). If you visited a salon that did something like - and apparently it's done in some quite frequently - the drops might have created some sort of chemical reaction with the remover.

The other thing I found with heat for drying many years ago is that I might go home, make dinner, and then go to bed, all the while thinking my polish was dry. In the morning, I'd wake up with the impression of the blanket weave in my nails. It happened a few times and then I stopped using heat for drying. I don't think it really helps secure nails.

These days I just use polish straight - no base or top coat usually, and I find my polish dries quickly, and doesn't smear or smooch. I usually mostly the Sephora and NARS polishes and occasionally something else.

Hope this helps.

Question
Am I doing this right?
I'm wondering is I misunderstood the directions for the drying drops. I applied a base coat of clear polish, two coats of nail color, and a top coat and then applied the drying drops after the top coat. They didn't work well, so I'm guessing I did it wrong. Am I supposed to apply after each and every coat?

No, you only need to apply it after your top coat. Otherwise the drops will get between the layers and cause it to peel. If you are doing so many layers of polish, it will dry the top coats down to touchable, but the layers beneath will still be soft and prone to marring if you do too much with them. For the most part, wait 15 minutes and you should be good to go.

No, only apply it after your Top Coat if you use Top Coat. If you don't, then apply it after your last coat of Color. But, wait a minute or two for the Top Coat or Color to dry, then use 1 - 3 drops on your nails depending on the nail size. :]

There is no need to apply after every coat. It takes patience, but each coat must be protected in steps by allowing sufficient time to dry in between various coats (2 minutes). If this is followed, the nail drops are very effective, even after multiple steps. I have used them after multiple steps on fingers or toes, but only after waiting long enough to apply.

I do one coat then wait a minute the the next coat then wait a min then the top coat then drops. It has worked for me ok you still need to be careful though and wait like 20 min before you do hard stuff with your hands as the bottom coats will not be fully hard set. The drops just make the top layer hard quicker so that you can move and use your hands but be cautious still for a bit till they set.

No your color won't stick if you use it after every coat. You apply this after your last coat of whatever you are using but make sure you still let everything dry five minutes between application of base coat then another 5 after you apply color and then one minute before you put on drying drops as last step.

The directions say to wait a minute or so before applying the drops after you've finished applying all the nail polish (base coat, nail color, top coat, etc) before applying the oil drops onto your nails. From my experience, I paint my nails, wait at least a minute and apply the drops afterwards. This usually works for me (I haven't had anything go wrong so far).

answer 11
You only need to apply it after you're done painting your nails with everything. I use a base coat, two layers of polish and a top coat - wait 60 seconds - that's the important part and then add the drops. If you add the drops too soon, you get bubbles (at least I did.) I also use three drops not the 1-2 on the directions. One at the base of my nail, one in the middle and one on the top 1/3 of the nail. Two drops just didn't seem to cover all of my nail. Also after I apply the drops, I wait about 10 mintues before I really start to do anything that might smudge my nails. I know we all want instant drying, but with that many layers, 10 minutes isn't asking too much when you consider it would take hours for it to dry without the drops. Good luck!

You can use on normal polish. Top coat is clear and dries a bit harder to protect your polish. It is recommended you use a top coat just to keep the lacquer from chipping or peeling due to wear and tear but is not required.

I was wondering about that as well. On the box it says to use a topcoat, however since the goal here is to save time not waste more, i tried using them directly after my nailpolish and it was fine. I'd say that this product could just be considered a topcoat as well since it hardened the nail in about one minute and looked shiny afterward. My manicure lasted about a week with no chips. I would say go ahead and just use it directly after your polish.

Hi,

I very rarely use a topcoat. I've found this to be awesome on the slower drying older nail polishes I have. Some of the newer ones I have dry so fast they don't need it. Personally, I've found that my polish used to chip more when I wore a topcoat as compared to when I don't. I rarely have chips when I do NOT use top or base coats. Regardless, this is awesome. I had a few really old polishes I liked, and they took forever to dry. This takes care of the problem.

This is a valuable gem. You need very little to dry your nails from this little bottle.
OPI Nail Colour Drying Drops are contained in a 9ml/ or .3 FL ounce bottle.

This is the same size of a Sally Hansen Nail Polish. But compared to Sephora by OPI Nail Polish (at .5 FL oz);
It's a little bit smaller by .2 FL ounces.
One drop goes a long, long way. It dries your nails while nourishing them too.
Much better than drug store brands,
that aren't as effective and cost is comparable.

I think it evaporated. It's not because I didn't tightly close the bottle, because I made sure everytime and nothing leaked out. The next time I went to use it however, I noticed more and more would be gone until it was eventually all gone. I don't paint my nails to often so I felt like I should have lasted way longer than six months. I probably paint my nails twice a month,if that. I guess it evaporated.

I'd say it depends on how often you do your nails and how long your fingernails are. For me, each bottle has lasted at least 4 months. I do my fingernails (very short) and toenails once every 2-3 weeks. Since you only need 1-2 drops per nail, you really can stretch out each bottle.

It is not a top coat it just goes on and helps them dry faster you put it on over the top coat and it takes a few min to dry.

If you do your nails once a week will last 3 - 6 months as long as you only use one small drop per nail.

depends on how much you use it; I used it for manicures and pedicures, and I believe it was just under a year maybe?

Yes. Just make sure you use a top coat. Wait about 30 seconds and you'll be good.

I have used them on gel nails with no issues. I don't see a problem with using them on acrylic, as there is no acetone in it.

This product can be used on any type of nail. Most acrylics that are used at nicer salons are not affected by many products, nor are gel nails. These should not be used with matte colors, as the formula requires no top coat.

While I don't get acrylics anymore, I used to wear them all the time. I see no reason why these would have ruined my acrylics. The drops simply coat the layer of nail polish on top. Additionally, they are not harsh chemically (or at least don't feel that way even on my sensitive skin).

I don't see why not as this product just makes the polish dry and I dont think it matters what the base surface is (natural nail or acrylic). You should be good either way! :)

Bubbles in polish?
Whenever I use these, I get bubbles in my nail polish. The base, color, and topcoat are new and when I don't use the drops, they are fine.

I've not had problems with bubbles. I've been using them after applying OPI base coat, two coats of Illamasqua varnish, and one coat of OPI top coat. I wait 60 seconds between applying the top coat and the drops, per the instructions. I hold the dropper really close to my nail and tilt my nail around so the drops completely cover it. I hope this helps!

It could be because your using so many layers on your nails... or possibly the top coat your using doesn't mesh well with the drops? I never get bubbles with this product because I just put on the color no base or top coat.... try that and see if it works better?

Are you letting the top coat dry a little bit? I've never had that problem, but I let everything dry for 5 minutes or so.

You need to wait a few minutes before applying the drops. The bubbles happen because the top layer of polish dries faster than the lower layer. Your body heat causes bubbles to rise in the lower layer of polish. Fix = wait 5 minutes or so before applying drops.

I also noticed this when i used the drops over certain polishes, usually thicker polishes. I think it's because the polish releases some gasses as it cures and the silicone layer prevents these gasses from escaping.
I found that if i waited a little while, about five minutes, after applying my final coat before using the drops, the incidence of bubbles decreased.
