Good coverage

4

Good coverage, only requiring one coat. Dries quickly and there are a number of pretty colors to choose from. I didn't notice that it lasted much longer than any other polish, in terms of chipping, etc

Best polish

I love Sally Hansen Insta Dri Fast Dry Nail Polish. Dries very fast, last longer than any other nail polish I've used, doesn't chip like most polish does with within days. I can apply one coat and I'm happy with the color and shinesness.

Quick dry for the on the go parent!

The color goes on great in one application, smooth and complete. Dries within minutes, completely 'hardened' in about 5 minutes. However, does start seeing visible wear off by the end of first day, and small chipping within the first 2 days.

Is the formula REALLY new and improved?

I have the shade "Espresso", I LOVE the shade! I expected a dark brown because of the shade name but surprisingly it's more of a pinky/mauvey medium brownish shade. (The shade is right up my alley!) Application was good, when I was about half way through my second coat I noticed the sides of the bottle feeling clumpy, almost like it was trying to dry inside of the bottle. After just one coat the polish is opaque but I went in with a second out of habit. The brush is my favorite type of nail polish brush. (It's a wider brush rather than typical, regular round shapes nail polish brushes. My nails were 100% dry in about a minute! Dry time is huge for me because I have a 24 month old and having time to sit and wait on my nails to dry for a long time and not messing them up is 9 outta 10x fails. I was very impressed! About 3 hours later I took a shower and 7 nails were chipped badly, 3-4 had chipped 1/4th of the polish on my whole nail. I did not use any base or top coat because it claimed to be a new and improved fomula and they weren't necessary. I will probably still use this polish but I am very disappointed about the short wear time. I would like my nails to at least get through the day after painting them. A few hours is unacceptable and needs to be tweaked to fix that issu.

I was not pleased

I change my nail color anywhere from once to twice a week. I am always looking for nail color that dries quickly. I bought Sally Hansen quick dry. The color is like a maroon/red (in my personal experience). I have used it twice because I wanted to see if I got the same result twice. I paint my nails and even do a doubke coat. The polish does dry quickly which I love. However, in less than 24 hours (if I made it half that long) the nail polish was cracked or chipoed. It looks horrible. I have not had issues like this with some cheaper products. The pro is that it does dry fast and the colors are pretty. The con is it doesn't last at all, and you have to keep redoing your nails. Disappointed.

Great drugstore pick

Sally Hansen Insta Dri is my favorite from the Sally Hansen line and one of the best from the drugstore. The brush is nice and wide but not too wide. Also, many of the shades are good to go in one coat. While the polish does dry quickly it does not dry rock hard so I still recommend a top coat to protect your polish.

This polish is pretty good!

I love to paint my nails! What I love even more than painting them is finding a polish that doesn't chip and dries fast! Most nail polish that dries fast is just awful. The Sally Hansen Insta-Dri nail polish is great! It really does dry super fast and the color selection is decent too. I love how it's shiny even with one coat. It's highly recommended and it's a decent price too!

Not up to Sally Hansen's typical quality

I'm a big fan of other Sally Hansen polishes. I love Sally Hansen's Complete Salon Manicure, Extreme Wear, and Diamond Strength formulas. They all last a fairly long time and dry pretty quickly. I'd hoped that this formula would be a faster drying formula with their well know chip performance and high color pigmentation. I was sorely disappointed, however, because this formula falls well short of Sally Hansen's typically high standards. I purchased a bright neon purple, a gunmetal metallic grey, a metallic mauve, and a frost green. These formulas were extremely watery and streaky as you applied them. They went on so thin you'd need 3 or more coats to get a good coverage. They were so difficult to paint with as well. It's also like they were drying too fast, drying as you painted with them. The result was a streaky, clumpy mess. It was also hard to paint a smooth, clean line along the nailbed, without smudging on to the cuticle. I hate wasting money but I ended up just throwing these out.

The nail polish that does what it says

5

There are a lot of nail polish on the market today. If your like me. you have tried them all. SALLY HANSEN fast dry nail polish is just that. Dries in a flash and gives a hard shine. Doesn't streak or glob. One coat is all you need for a beautiful nails, that look like you had them done. Well worth the money.
