This is a perfect bright red shade that I keep purchasing over and over again. It is my standard! I use it for both hands and toes all summer long. It’s a great price and it actually does what it says: instantly dries. Honestly, it exceeded my expectations. I did not expect it to actually dry as fast as it did. I’m also pleasantly surprised for how long it lasts, usually around 4 days without chipping at all—which is amazing considering I wash the dishes every day. Touch ups are a breeze with this product and the new cost seamlessly blends in to the older coat. I usually do thicker layers and wait a couple of minutes with no fan or anything and they completely dry. This nail product spreads out nice and evenly without leaving any clumps. I use the clear version of this line as a top coat and it leaves my hands looking like I got then done at the nail salon (which I often do and this goes on great afterwards when the nail polish has chipped.)

Review for: Other more...
Sally Hansen Insta Dri polishes are awesome! The formula of this gorgeous strawberry red called "Let's Jam" is creamy and smooth. The wide flat brush makes it very easy to apply in just a few strokes and I really love that you don't need a base or top coat! It actually looks really shiny! This one is so pigmented that I could have gotten away with applying just 1 coat, but decided to do the second coat just to see if there would be a difference. 

My favorite thing about these polishes is how fast they dry! It's perfect for me because I love changing my polish often and don't like to spend too much time waiting for polish to dry! The new packaging with the matching lid is nice, but honestly, I love the sleek look of the black lids. But I can appreciate the fact that if you store your polishes in a drawer, it is a lot easier to see what colors you have with these new lids! Either way, the formula is awesome and the colors are beautiful!

Review for: SET SAIL more...
I picked the shade “Set Sail” up at my local CVS skeptical of wether of not it would work (it was literally only 4.99 compared to Essie’s 9 dollar polishes) and I was shocked at how amazing it was! The quality is comparable to high end products. It goes opaque in one coat (although I tend to prefer to use two). The applicator is really user-friendly and mess free for doing your own nails. It also does not chip or crumble or get goopy, and as it claims, dries super fast. I’m so excited to try out other colors from their collection but if you’re looking for a go-to summer shade, “Set Sail” is gorgeous and looks amazing with a bit of a tan!

Review for: EXPRESSO more...
This is such a gorgeous color! I really like the thick wide brush and how the tip of the brush is curved. The polish has a very glossy finish that it looks like it's still wet even though it dries down fast. Adding a top coat wouldn't even add any extra amount of glossiness to the polish. The only downside of this nail polish is that due to the ability to dry really fast, I've noticed that the nail polish on the bottle gets rather goopy quickly. It still applies like a dream though, it just comes on really thick.

Review for: SEIZE THE GRAY more...
This polish is great to use at home! The brush is wide enough that just one swipe covered my whole nail. I used the white shade and it is pigmented enough that I only needed two coats of polish for vibrant white nails. It also did dry very fast!! My only slight issue with it is that it kind of dries soft. What I mean by that is it gets scratched and dented easily, and peels off rather easily as well. I wasn’t expecting that because of the built-in top and bottom coat formula. That being said, it’s affordable, easy to find in stores, easy to apply, it dries quickly, and I love the color. Would recommend this product!

Review for: BLACK TO BLACK more...
This is my favorite traditional nail polish. Normally I wear a no chip manicure in a neutral color, because I have lots of job interviews in human resources, and I don’t want my goth to show. This nail polish is perfect because it applies evenly and opaquely, and it dries so fast that I can throw it on over my no chip so that I can have goth nails for an event, and then take it right off and go back to my classy lady disguise. It’s also very reasonably priced coming in under five dollars, and you can find it at just about any store. Love love love!

Review for: SONIC BLOOM more...
So I picked this up because of the vibrant color and good price tag. The nail polish did dry super quick...not instantly and was opaque in two coats. When I paired this with my Seche Vite quick dry top coat, polish was fully dry in about 10-15 (but was still careful to avoid smudges in case under layers of polish weren't fully dry). Sonic Boom is a great color for Summer...but I only got about 3 days with no chips whereas with my Essie, and Zoya brand polishes I get 5-6 days with no chips. So I  recommend if you polish your nails every other day or so but if you want a longer lasting color, I would say go with Zoya, Essie or OPI.

Review for: MAKE IT SNAPPY! more...
It does dry very quickly, but it takes a while for the nails to be truly dry and un-smudge-able. Not the miracle product my clumsy and impatient self was looking for. Color is pretty, but quickly gets chipped and dirty looking. Not bad for a cheap polish, but I don’t think I will buy again. (Photo attached was taken only a few days after application.)

#493 Midnight Drive by Sally Hansen. LOVE this color. Luscious, rich full body color. No streaking, excellent coverage. One coat wonder! The brush is one of my favorite features. This brush is wide and flexible. With this brush you can actually do a 2 or 3 swipe technique. Zero streaking. Insta-Dri lives up to it's name and design. One coat dried inside of 10 minutes. Insta-Dri has a permanent place in my polish inventory.

Review for: EXPRESSO, GO FOR GOLD more...
First off, I LOVE SALLY HANSEN. I no longer have time to go to the salon, and I'm so happy that I started using Sally Hansen nail products. I have invested my time in caring for my nails and it's so worth it. I would get acrylic nails and spend so much. First, I decided to try using Sally hansen's nail growth/hardener polish. Within weeks my nails grew long! Consistency is key (I take vitamins also) and my nails don't split and crack like how they used to. Insta dri polish really does dry fast which is perfect since I dont have to wait at all and worry about my nails getting messed up. I can finally say my nails are strong and I have such a variety of colors to choose from. It is so genius and a life saver for nail polish to dry so quick. It takes less than 5 mins!! I chose expresso and gold for a transition to fall look and I love it!! I can't wait to get more shades! Thank you Sally Hansen for giving me hope to have amazing natural nails at such an affordable price.
