Love love love this nail polish. The insta-dri collection has been my fav from Sally Hansen for quite some time because of how easily it applies. The brush is flat, making it super easy to go on in a few swipes without having to really try hard to "stay in the lines". & like most Sally Hansen nail polishes you only need one coat.

The name isn't a lie either, it drys in what feels like no time at all. By the time your done both hands every finger is pretty much dry making these Perfect as base coats - but I also have never had a problem using them for small details in nail art.

& of course you can't go wrong with that price. Sally Hansen nail polishes tend to be inexpensive, and I'm definitely not complaining about that.

I will be honest though, if you wear this polish with no top coat it will last you a day and then start to chip completely off. How ever, you aren't even paying 6$ a bottle, so can you really complain? I just pair mine with a SH top coat and they last so long

Review for: Chartreuse Chase
This stuff actually works! This seriously saves my sanity. It's like I have to plan and gear myself up for nail-painting, because I usually do a base coat, then 1 to 2 coats of color, then a chip-resistant top coat, and by then I'm probably needing to push the "Yes, I am actually still here and binge-watching, Netflix, so please keep going" button, and I can't effectively do that with wet nails. This really does dry your nails, but things still need to "cure" for an hour, really, before things are set in stone, but that is to be expected. The Insta-Dri really just means that you can gently touch your nails without smudging them to death, which is great.

Review for: Leapin' Lilac
I have been searching for the perfect pinkish purple nail polish and finally, this is it! The color is so perfect. It's like lavender with a little baby pink mixed in. It's exactly what I've been searching for. Not only is the color perfect, but this entire line of nail polish is top notch. The brush size is great, not too big like some cheaper brands, but not too small either. At the most, I've only ever used two coats. Sometimes only one. It dries instantly. No joke. I paid $3.98 for this bottle at Walmart and the quality is just as good as the $8+ brands.

Review for: Go For Gold
This nail polish Sally Hansen is of very good quality and is perfect to apply those days when you do not have much time to do your manicure.

Dry super fast and has a smooth finish that leaves a delicate look on your nails. Moreover, you can get it in many colors according to the season.

It is a product that is a little more expensive than others, but if you run with luck you can find it in sometimes discount or at stores like Dollar Tree.

I love Sally Hansen products and this is one of the best, definitely buy again and recommend it to my friends!

I bought this color to go out of my comfort zone and I was pretty happy with my choice. It dries fast and has a great shine to it. The pigmentation is high and you don't have to use a lot of coats to pull out the color. It's also great to sponge on for an ombre effect if you do nail art. This is one of those products I could hoard and have in every color because it works so well. Most of us know the pain of having to wait for our nails to dry and this cuts the wait time in half. Just let each coat dry in between and you'll be fine.

Review for: Pink Blink
I love the color, it's a very pretty pale pink. However, the brush is massive and pack on way to much product, even when I brush off some polish on the inside of the neck of the bottle. It's very thick and difficult to apply evenly, and I have to repaint my nails multiple times to get my nail color to look decent. I think if you use a different brush and maybe a nail polish thinner you may have better luck with polish than I did, but I would personally try a different nail polish and don't think that this one is worth the hassle.

Can us ladies all promise to have nail polish at the door on Halloween when we are taking the kids around trick-or-treating!? Treats for us polish junkies! I typically stick with OPI but I bought this for color on the run and it works great! My only complaint is that it color gets on the clear coat brush too easily. Moderate color selection but they're all unique so you're not stuck with generic colors just because you need quick dry polish. Fairly priced as well!

Review for: Making Mauves
First of all, I love the color!! It's close to gray, and with the smallest hint of shimmer. It is nothing too noticeable, but just enough to add a little something extra. I also love the "insta-dri" concept--it really does dry quickly!!

However, after using only a few times, the formula became very thick and "gloopy", making it hard to apply evenly and nicely. I would love to find this shade in a different brand because I do love the color but was disappointed in the quality after owning and using for some time.

Review for: Clearly Quick
I love using this as a #topcoat when I'm refreshing my #manicure or had to paint my #nails before an event!

It's my #nail polish #musthave that I keep at home and at work. It's perfect for a quick run to the bathroom before a guest comes to the office.

Lastly, it really does dry very quickly! I would recommend waiting for five to ten minutes before washing your hands. It won't smudge unless you apply pressure to it.

Be sure to do the thumbprint check before you start digging in your purse!

I have had many different colors of this variety of nail polish. The color selection is excellent. The best part about this polish is that it holds true to its name and dries fast. Unfortunately, that means you have to work quickly or it can become clumpy on your nail. This is a great nail polish for little kids who can't hold still long enough for traditional polish to dry. Be prepared to do several coats for adequate coverage and to repaint and a couple days as it chips quickly.
