Hey everyone! I just got back home from a super relaxing and super needed staycation weekend.

I know you’re here for swatches of the newest Sally Hansen Mega Strength polishes though, so we will chit-chat at another time. 😀

Sally Hansen x Crayola InstaDri Glam Rock nail polish collection swatches + review

Press Sample buttonI swatched this collection this week and afterwards I felt like my fingernails were gonna fall off. 😛 I am seriously impressed with the Sally Hansen x Crayola InstaDri Glam Rock collection! Every polish was two coats – but perhaps if you have longer nails than my nubs, you might need a third coat. Dry time was fast but I experienced no dragging on my second coat.
