I previously submitted the attached question and was told a similar answer already existed on your site. Thanks for your reply. I have checked all the places you suggested. I now know typical ingredients, what keeps it from chipping, what makes polish hard, and what makes up a fingernail. I also saw that nails get dry because the solvent in them evaporates. What I don't understand is which ingredients are the solvent, and why some evaporate or dry faster than other brands. Can you please help me with this, or tell me where to look to find the answer? Thanks Megan > I am doing a science fair project on which nail polish dries fastest. I am > having trouble finding out which ingredient is responsible for this.
