Love love love
I always love to use this nail polish I alway use the clear as a top coat for it is quick drying and makes the nail polish stay for weeks! All the colors only need one cost instead of multiple and it is very quick drying!
Clear coat is awful!
I got 110 "Clearly Quick" and tried using it as a top coat--don't! It takes off some of the polish and flakes quickly. The brush is amazing, wish all nail polishes had a shorter brush like this one. Too bad the brush is the only good part of this stuff!
What a brush!
It really does have full coverage in one stroke! I loved the color also what a wonderful blue! :o I would buy more just for the brush.
The color is dry. It flakes quick, I used with the clear coat in the same brand. Combination was horrible together. I just tried out a different top/bottom coat. We'll see how it works! :)
Not worth the money!
I brought this nail varnish because i hate waiting for my nails to dry and the colour was gorgeous . However i was disappointed it stained my nails really bad, and i got lots of air bubbles in between coats. Also the nail polish was too thick so when i was painting smaller nails such as my little finger i found it hard to not put it everywhere!!!
Quality could be much better.
I have this in Vigorous Violet, which is a warm, medium-light purple creme with a subtle shimmer. I really like the color and it does dry very quickly. The brush is very wide and holds a lot of polish, which can take a little while to get used to but works better than a thinner brush. The polish itself is on the thicker side, but it's very opaque. You could probably get away with one coat but I think it looks better with two. I haven't noticed any staining with this color, and I don't usually use a base coat.
Unfortunately I seem to get bubbles every time I use this polish no matter how long I wait between coats. And I just noticed recently that, after owning it for less than a year, the polish is separating really badly in the bottle. I haven't used it in a while and don't really know why it's separating like that, but I'm sure it's not a good sign.
It's a good product for the price but there are better nail polishes you could buy instead. Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear polish, for example, works much better than this and is about the same price. I'm still a loyal Sally Hansen customer but I probably won't buy another Insta-Dri polish any time soon.
Dries fast but left stains on my nail. Usually, I don't put clear coat under my base coat but for this one, I might. The brush size and shape was something that I like and the texture was thick but not so thick...like it's even enough to just paint one coat of color. I wouldn't use this product as much, maybe just once in a while. I used a buffer to get the stains off.
It really does dry fast!
I hate waiting for polish to dry, so when I saw the name Insta-dri I had to try it. I really does dry very fast! I also like that I only have to apply one coat and a top coat. I also like the flat shape of the brush which makes application even easier. Color usually lasts about a week with a top coat. Good polish for the price.
Sure did dry fast!!
I really like this nail polish. I usually hit or bump my nails before they dry and they get totally ruined. Well, I still bumped them, but they were completely dry by that time and didn't budge! I even bumped them DURING the application of my nail color, there was a little imperfection but I covered it up right away and it looked like I had done nothing to them (a lot of nail colors don't cover so well when that happens to me). The big brush is great for that and makes it supper easy to appy an even finish. I got the best color in 2 coats-which is normal I know. I also love the color, which was a very bright yellow with no glitter in it, just what I was looking for =)
Lives up to its name!
I got the perfect shade of bright red for Valentine's day and it dried extremely quickly, no need to apply extra coats --which is SO rare for OTC nail polishes, the pigments are great-- and though it chipped a few days into it, I wasn't too upset because the price was great. I think the only other downside is that it's REALLY hard to get off, but most red nail polishes are :/
