How long does nail polish take to dry?

How long does nail polish take to dry?

I got a pedicure this weekend and it looked quite nice. Then half an hour later I thought it would be dry by then, so I went shoe shopping and ruined the polish. In hindsight this was pretty dumb, but I really thought the polish would have been dry by then.

They let you leave when the top layer is dry. It's still smudgeable for a while. I definitely would not have gone shoe shopping.

That's weird, 30 minutes is quite awhile. It was also depends if they put a quick dry coat on. Some salons also have a quick dry spray that works really well. I'd give it an hour for shoe shopping, maybe more depending on how many coats they used.
