Sally 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.

Does it count as Valentine’s Day nail art if it doesn’t have hearts? Oh well, I’m going with it. Swatches of the new Sally Hansen Insta-Dri line coming in a few days.
This first nail art manicure I took a lesson from this tutorial nail_muse on instagram. I’m definitely going to use this technique again.
This second manicure, I used this tutorial (also from nail_muse) but it really didn’t turn out like I wanted so I didn’t wear it out.
Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Midnight Drive, 2 coats
Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Watermelon Wizz, 2 coats
Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Heather Hues, 2 coats
Stella Chroma Karavaki (Polish Pickup Pack December 2017), 3 thin coats plus 2 coats of top coat. This had kind of a stinky scent to it, but I chalked it up to the blue pigment possibly in the base.
I’ll have swatches of the new Sally Hansen Insta-Dri line coming this next week but I wanted to do some Valentine’s Day nail art. I saw this design from majamarkowicz on instagram and totally fell in love and wanted to try it for myself. I quite like how it ended up! Of course I did dishes last night and I’m already seeing wear at the tips. <_<
Sally Hansen Rosy Quartz, 2 coats and no top coat. This is my perfect “MNBB” (my nails but better)
Sally Hansen Teal Good (left slant). This is going to stain nails!
Sally Hansen Reflection Pool (right slant). This was more sheer than expected.
ILNP Sunday Brunch. This was way more sheer than expected
Topped by Sally Hansen Argan Oil Top Coat
Though I don’t have pictures of it, at 4 days I had minor tip wear on both hands; at 6 days, I had more tip wear but no peeling or chunks coming off.
Hello, Be Happy and Buy Polish readers! I’m Stacie from wacie.com and I’m your guest poster today. I have a black and silver skittle mani that I hope you’ll like. For this look, I used Digital Nails‘s Pandorica (black holo) and Wow (silver holo), Sally Hansen’s Black Out (black creme), OPI’s Push and Shove (silver foil), and Indigo Bananas‘s Moonlight (Clair de Lune) (silver flakies). I used top coat on every nail but the middle one. All photos were taken in direct sunlight.
Hi everyone! Yesterday you saw my post with Sally Hansen The Digital Overload partial collection, and today I’m showing one polish from the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Glam Rock collection: Motley Hue.
Motley Hue is a pretty basic berry creme nail polish. It sure did look pretty though under Let’s Get Digital yesterday though, right?
Check back later today, I’m going to have another pretty polish combo!
Good morning all! I’m going to quit whining about my lack of sleep as you probably don’t want to keep hearing about it. I’m happy that my baby is healthy & growing, so I’m attempting to focus on the positives. Today’s polishes come to you via Sally Hansen’s The Digital Overload Miracle Gel nail polish collection, of which I have 4 polishes.
First up is World Wide Red. This is a jelly red-coral, not as orange as it seems here. (My camera hates these kinds of reds, my apologies.) This is 2 coats and no top coat.
Next is Gigabryte, a bright sunny yellow. Formula was typical for a yellow – streaky! This is 2 coats and no top coat.
Next It’s Digi-Teal and it’s slightly more green-toned in person. This is 2 coats of no top coat.
Last is Let’s Get Digital, a color shifting polish meant to layer over other colors. First is shown 1 coat over Digi-Teal.
This is 1 coat over Motley Hue (which you’ll see tomorrow).
I will be doing a wear test soon with the top coat, but you can see a previous wear test with Sally Hansen Miracle Gel top coat here. I’d love to know your thoughts on these polishes, so sound off below in the comments!
