Beauty Review: Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Nail Polish

Let’s talk nails y’all. I’ve been randomly picking different brands of nail polishes and I’ve found a few I actually love. So I am going to share one of them with you.

Being that I’m a HUGE Sally Hansen Miracle Gel fan, I decided to pick up one of the Insta-Dri polishes in Peachy Breeze.

Like Miracle Gel, this polish has the flat applicator brush that I LOVE! All nail polishes need a flat brush. It makes application easy, and goes on more evenly. Most of the time, all you need is one coat and viola! 


Their website claims:

  • Dries in 60 seconds
  • One coat coverage
  • Instantly irresistible shades

So I put this baby to the test. I applied my first coat at 8:08 am, and by 8:10 am it was fully dried. Impressed! The only problem was, one hand looked perfect, and as I much as I tried to avoid it, the other one had streaks. What can I say, I’m better with makeup than nail polish. And as you’ll see below I messed it up with my blanket, whoops!


So I had to do a second coat. HUGE MISTAKE! I applied the second coat at around 8:20 am. My nails didn’t fully dry until 9:50 am. No I’m not kidding. It took over an hour for the second coat to dry. Yes, the first coat dried as fast as Flash Gordon running a marathon, but the second coat dired as slow as molasses on top of snail.

I’ve had the polish on for about a week now. Taking into consideration that I am a very active person, and don’t have a maid (yet), my nails look pretty decent. My cuticles need some TLC thought.


I paid $4.99 USD for it at Rite Aid. To find this color at a location near you, visit Sally Hansen’s website.
