Review for: Racin' Red more...
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.)

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!

😏 Nail Polish is my Archenemy. Over the years, I've learned the hard way which brands are pigmented, which brands NEVER 😔 DRY, which brands take a little longer to chip, and which brands dry the fastest. Our friend Sally, legitimately figured out the solution to one of those issues. To be fair, I don't put too much pressure on polish. At the most, I'm satisfied if I can make it through one whole day with minimal polish loss. I'm a mom, a wife and an amimal rescuer, so like most women, my hands are constantly moving. In and out of water, in and out of cleaning products and disinfectants, handling food, etc. We have to be realistic with our expectations. Forget chipping, it's *going* to happen, what I need is friggin fast drying. You don't even want to know how much money I would actually pay for this polish, y'all! The number of times I have literally sat still, waving my arms in front of fans or hair dryers just to think they're dry but they're somehow not is ridiculous. This polish ACTUALLY dries fast. It ACTUALLY only needs 1 swipe application because it's gloriously pigmented! It's worth every penny in every shade. A round of applause for Sally! 👏👏👏

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: Slick Slate more...
My new go-to neutral. Polish goes on well and levels out nicely. I still use base coat and top coat so it will last longer. First coat dries quickly, but one coat isn't enough. Subsequent coats dry like normal nail polish (definitely not in 60 Seconds). I wish Sally Hansen made some 5-free or 7- free polishes, which I usually prefer, but I make an exception for the Insta-Dri line (I also have Grease Lightning - nice gray but a little dark for spring/summer).

I'm surprised how fast this actually dries. The colors are nice and really only need one or two swipes because of the shape of the brush. My 9 year old loves this since shes a little impatient for regular nail polish to dry this is perfect for her to use. The staying power is about the same obviously if your washing dishes etc this will chip right away. But glad that it would be easy to fix a nail and not have to wait 15-30 min to dry. The price point is around 5 bucks which I feel is pretty reasonable too.cant wait to get a couple more colors

Review for: Seize The Gray more...
I just finished using this nail polish and I am so pleasantly surprised! With such a light color, I was fully intending to have to use 2-3 coats to get a full, even look on my nails, and after the first coat, my nails look amazing! That combined with how quickly this polish dries, I don’t know if I’ll be using anything else. So quick, easy, and amazing payoff. Not to mention affordable! In love with this product!

these insta dry nail polishes are the coolest things i’ve ever seen. they actually do dry down in a minute and although I am a perfectionist and a bit anxious when I paint my nails, since I don’t want to ruin them, this product is amazing. I don’t know how to explain it, but when I paint my nails with this polish my nails literally come out perfect. The nail polish order forms to your nail shape and covers the whole area by itself. i know ! sounds crazy. but i TOTALLY recommend this product :')

Review for: Sand Storm more...
I love the color of this nail polish and the colors this line has to offer it does look nice when initially applied. I always do two coats so it does take little to dry it’s not instant. The wear is not bad too but the reason why I am giving it three stars is because once it starts to chip removing it is nearly impossible. I know sounds crazy but it does not come off with nail polish remover I had to chip and file down in order to remove it which has left me with peeling brittle nails.

Review for: Making Mauves more...
I really like this nail polish. I have it in two colors, and I'm looking forward to getting more. You only need one coat (don't try two, you won't be happy-- learned that the hard way). With only one coat, it really does dry in 60 seconds. It's a great way to complete an outfit right before you head out the door! The only reason I am giving 4 instead of 5 stars is that since you only use one coat, some nails aren't complete covered, but it beats having to sit and do nothing while you wait for thicker polish to dry.
