I'm testing out another one of the popular Pinterest DIY posts today. This time I'm trying out the spray oil manicure. The original pins suggest that spraying Pam (or a similar aerosol spray oil) will "instantly dry your manicure." Well, it doesn't do that--not even close.
What it does do is create an oily buffer on your nails that makes them a little less likely to get nicked or smudged. Awesome, right? Well sure if you're hands weren't covered in slippery oil....and it only works if you put on a relatively thin coat of nail polish....glob on too much polish and the Pam will leave little bubbles in your manicure...not to mention that things that would normally be a no-no when your nails are drying are still a no-no--it's no magic bullet. But heck, if you have a bottle of spray oil that's about to expire, chuck it in the bathroom cabinet, it could help save your manicure on a busy day--but be warned it's slippery stuff.
P.S. It's really hard to take pictures when your hands are covered in Pam.
