Sally Hansen Insta Dri Metallic Sonic SilverHey I’m back again with more WOC swatches, this time by Melissa of @polishandpups. If you’re interested in my original swatches, here they are. Don’t forget to follow Melissa! The following are all Melissa’s notes:I wanted to get a good idea of how these would wear without topcoat and decided to start with Razzmic Berry. My experiment didn’t go well. Even though they are Insta-Dri, I let it dry for over an hour and went to bed. I woke up with terrible sheet marks. After that unsuccessful attempt I decided to use top coat on all of them; therefore, I don’t really know how all of them work without top coat. I also didn’t find I was happy with all of them in one coat. A couple of them worked okay in one coat but really I needed two for the coverage I prefer.Sally Hansen Insta Dri Metallic Blast Off Bronze
2 Medium Coats
Cuticula Timeless Top CoatBlast off Bronze is a metallic brown. I had really high hopes for this one. I wouldn’t call it a true bronze. The color in the bottle looks gorgeous. However, it was a bit of a disappointment. The formula goes on streaky and for some reason dried patchy. I didn’t apply it any differently than the others it just dried with some darker spots. This is two medium coats with top coat.Sally Hansen Insta Dri Metallic Deep Space Sparkle
2 Medium Coats
Cuticula Timeless Top Coat
Deep Space Sparkle is a metallic gun metal gray. I was so excited to try this one. Gun metal gray is one of my favorites and I have a ton of them. However, this one disappointed me. The formula is a bit thick and streaky on application. Once it dried I had patchy dark spots, which can be seen in the photos. The color itself is great and the streaks leveled out but the dark spots did not. This is two medium coats with top coat.Sally Hansen Insta Dri Metallic Sunburst

Cuticula Timeless Top Coat
Metallic Sunburst is a metallic gold. I wouldn’t wear this as a base color, I’m not a fan of how it looks against on me but the formula for it is fantastic. Application was a breeze and it dried beautifully. This is two medium coats with top coat.Sally Hansen Insta Dri Metallic Razzmic Berry
2 Medium Coats
Cuticula Timeless Top Coat
Razzmic Berry is a great color and formula. It’s a gorgeous metallic purple. I probably could have gotten away with one thick coat but I did two medium ones to make sure I had full coverage. I tend to be picky about visible nail line. This color was one of the better formulas, I didn’t have any streaking or issues with the polish leveling out.Sally Hansen Insta Dri Metallic Shimmering Blush
2 Medium Coats
Cuticula Timeless Top Coat
Shimmering Blush is a metallic pink. This pink tone is not a favorite color of mine, but the polish performs really well. I did two medium coats with top coat and got full coverage. The polish goes on a little streaky but levels out well. For anyone that loves pink this is a great one.Sally Hansen Insta Dri Metallic Sonic Silver
2 Medium Coats
Cuticula Timeless Top Coat
Sonic Silver is a great silver metallic polish. The first coat started a bit streaky but it leveled out nicely with the second coat. I got great coverage in two medium coats with top coat. I do love this color, but I am a sucker for grays and silvers.
