Sally Hansen Insta-Dri nail polishes

Press Sample buttonSally Hansen has reformulated their Insta-Dri line and they say:

  • New longer lasting formula with 16 new shades
  • Color-matched caps offer a modern, sleek feel and easy shade navigation
  • One stroke, one coat, dries in 60 seconds

I received all 16 shades to try out, except one – Leapin’ Lilac – broke in transit (you can see some of the splatter on a couple of the bottles). I can’t speak to wear time but all of them, except one, needed 2 coats. I do like the color-matched caps, that is a really nice feature. Each one’s formula was different than the next, so I’ll talk about formula under each polish swatch.

Don’t forget to check out the three nail art looks I’ve used with the new polishes: Heart Nail Art, kiss nail art and marbled nail art.

  3. I really liked these myself. I also received a total mess because two bottles broke. I know that I’m a packaging sucker so I love that the caps correspond to the polish color.
