Additionally, you’ll want to look for a dryer with adjustable settings so you can customize the drying time for different types of polish.
Finally, let’s talk about price. Nail dryers can range in price from as little as to as much as 0. Generally speaking, the more expensive dryers will have more features and better performance. However, if you’re on a budget, there are still plenty of great options available.
