Insta-Dri  six polishes and Big Shiny Topcoat.jpeg

Starting on the left is Big Shiny Top Coat, then  Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Nail Polish #170 Espresso, #280 Rapid Red, #155 Making Mauves, #325 Peachy Breeze, #125 Pumped Up Pink and ending with #160 Mauve It on the right.

You can always make just the right statement with fashion forward nails and toes.  With these six great shades of Sally Hansen’s Insta-Dri Nail Polishes, you are covered with attention-grabbing colors from fun brights to neutrals that can work so well for day through the night to help you sizzle.

The colors that I chose were #325 Peachy Breeze (perky coral-pink), #160 Mauve It (marriage of peach with soft mauve-pink bound together with a graceful shimmer), #125 Pumped Up Pink (cheerful rosy pink with a radiant shimmer), #155 Making Mauves (subtle gray-mauve neutral) to two year-round colors with #280 Rapid Red (classy matte red) and #170 Espresso (red-mauve matte with a bit of pink).

This was also my first time trying this fast-drying nail polish and loved the consistency of the formula as well as its big brush, which simplified for more precise painting and speeding up the manicure process.  I also liked how well this polish covered in one coat except for Peachy Breeze, which needed two.  However, I do prefer two coats because it does seem to make the polish last longer without chipping.

I swatched the shades for you in the below photos.

This is one of my favorites #125 Pumped Up Pink along with my recipe for delicious Mock Pecan Pie

The only flaw that I found with this polish was it does chip in about two days.  However, wearing a top coat like Sally Hansen’s Big Shiny Top Coat does help to extend the life and pump up the shine.  When you take into account how inexpensive Insta-Dri is along with a beautiful selection, this polish is wonderful for keeping nails beautifully groomed without breaking the bank in doing so.  Check Sally Hansen‘s Insta-Dri Nail Polishes out for yourself!

    They are all very pretty. Do they really dry instantly?

    They don't dry upon contact, but they do dry faster than many others.

    I agree, Leyla, Rapid Red is really a lovely red with great balance to it when you want to glam it up.
