Sally Hansen

Insta-Dri Anti-Chip Top Coat


Great top coat

This is a great top coat from sally hansen!
It's very shiny, and lives up to it's name (NO CHIPPING).
Definetely affordable.
Because it has a gel consistey, it tends to become goopy after a while.
I ahve heard though you can add the thinner and it'll be good as new. So i'm going to have to try that, hopefully it works out.


i love this top coat! it's exactly what u want it to do. INSTANTLY DRY! to the touch. i have finally found my go to top coat! i actually used it today for the first time and so hopefully it doesn't chip as it says on the box. crossing my fingers! other than that! 5 stars!

The best and most affordable top coat I've ever used!

I picked this up one day not really expecting too much out of it. Figured it would be like the rest. Boy was I wrong! The formula almost seems like a gel consistency that glides on really nicely. Your nails are dry very quickly and definitely don't cheap for a long time. I always get compliments on how shiny my nails are using this! Just go buy it already haha

It's been 7 days and my nails/toenails still look like day 1!

Ever since they made my nails bleed at the nail salon I vowed to never never, ever, never ever go back!!! Only problem was, how do I keep my nails looking good like day 1, like they do at the salon?!
Well, it didn't take me long to find the perfect answer to my problem!
I went to Tarjay (Target), went straight to the Sally Hansen aisle, since I know that Sally Hansen has an array of nail products. I contemplated, stood there, read each and every top coat product they had, and finally after an hour or so lol, I left with this one. Why? Because I was looking for an anti-chip top coat (good-lookin' nails from Day 1 remember?), but I also wanted a top coat that wouldn't keep my hands in a freeze frame status for gosh knows how long and in the end still smudge! The bottle says Insta-Dri, doesn't that grab your attention?! Ok maybe not instant, it does say 30 seconds in its description, but that's the final truth! I'm on my 2nd bottle and will continue to purchase this (sorry, I forget how much it is) until they make one that dries in 1/2 the time lol, 15 seconds. =p
Pros:It does what it says! Cons:It starts to dry out 1/4 of the bottle, when that happens, it's time to grab another, otherwise it'll mess up your "left hand trying to polish your right hand" mani if you're right handed and vice versa if your left handed. =)

Great topcoat that lasts forever and doesn't cost a fortune!

I LOVE this top coat! It does exactly what it says on the bottle - it dries VERY quickly to a gorgeous shine, and it actually does reduce chipping! I use this every time I do my nails no matter what polish I'm using because this top coat always makes it look so much nicer, and it makes my manicure last longer too. The large-ish size of the brush makes it easy to cover your whole nail without missing little spots.

I've had a bottle of this for over a year and it's still super smooth and easy to apply. It hasn't turned all gooey like other clear nail polishes and top coats I've used in the past. You definitely don't have to worry about not getting your money's worth out of this stuff!

brilliant topcoat!

this is a must have for people who do their nails! it dries polish so fast and well and doesn't go down very fast at all. it does need a good shake up everytime you use it, and gets a little gloopy around the lid but the actual product is great

Perfect Manicure!

Omg... I cannot imagine doing my manicure with out this! My friend recommended this to me and the next day I went to get it and Wow! My manicure lasts longer and so does my pedicure! I'm all about doing my nails at home but its difficult with my hectic life to get really nice nails. This has cut my drying time to 70%. I love it!

I swear by this topcoat!

It is AMAZING!! I have just started my second bottle and love it! My first bottle was my mom's, and was around 1-2 years old before I got it. I never got goopy, that is untill I left it open over night by mistake, even then though it was not full on goop and was still useable. I love that is a drugstore product and in my opion is worth every penny. A must have in your collection.

Inexpensive and dries quickly

I usually use Seche Vite fast dry top coat but picked this one up last week on a trip to Target. It dries in less than a minute; however, you really should wait the full 2 minutes after you apply your polish before using this. What I like most is that there was no polish "shrinkage" once it dried, like I get with Seche Vite. (have you ever noticed that the tips of your polish seem to disappear after using Seche Vite? it's that super duper fast dry process that shrinks the polish). I think I will repurchase this in the near future.


I LOVE this top coat!!!
It does exactly what it says on the bottle.!
It does in deed dry within 30 seconds.
I know because I counted xD
It also gives my nails a BEAUTIFUL SHINE!!! I love it!
