I love having my nails painted – especially during the warmer months. I typically opt for bright and cheerful colors regardless of the time of year – but I tend to find myself leaving my nails with no polish on them. Or, if I do take the time to paint my nails – I often wait way too long before removing the chipping polish.
I am no fan of paying several bucks for a polish, taking the time to paint my nails and let them dry only to have them begin to chip by the next day.
I noticed the Sally Hansen Insta-Dri a few weeks ago and thought I would give it a try. It’s an absolute necessity that nail polish dry fast. I don’t have time to sit and wait, in fear that I’ll ruin the manicure I just completed. With kids, you don’t have much time to be unavailable while your fingernails are drying.
The Insta-Dri by Sally Hansen was PERFECT. It has a nice and thick formula – which helps it spread in a more controlled manner. There is nothing worse than an extremely runny nail polish!
I completed two coats – though I think one would have been enough. Within ten minutes, my nails were fairly dry. I did take care to not squish or touch my nails for the next half hour or so – to keep from causing any imprints. They were nearly completely dry by the end of that time though I’m sure I could have managed to nick or damage the polish if I had tried.
I’m also in love with the Peppy Le Fuschia color! It’s vibrant and fun – just in time for the beach. I’m saving the lighter pink for when my skin has been kissed just a little by the warm sun. I think the contrast will look amazing.
Score an extra day of wear and up to 33 percent more chip resistance, all while adding the final touch to your ensemble in an instant!

What Others Are Saying
“I have essie, crabtree and Evelyn, Milani, and even Sally’s other nail lines, like gel and x-treme wear. This is by far my favorite formula, brush, and price combo, ever.
The reason I hated painting my nails was because I never had the time, and I would always mess them up before they could dry. Then, a friend lent me a bottle of Insta Dry, in “rose run”, and I loved it so much I went searching for my own bottle of this line.”
