I bought this years ago and I still really like it. The color is a very bright melon, pink. It's very opaque with the first coat of polish. I always do two coats though-- just in case I miss a spot. It does dry quite fast. I wouldn't say instantly but it does dry within two or three minutes. The second coat takes a little longer though. I really love the brush too. It's the perfect size for my nail. I can do one swipe and I've covered pretty much the entire nail. I just have to go back in with the brush and make sure I cover them. The polish lasted quite a long time too. I used to never use a top or base coat and this polish would last about a full 7 days before major chipping would happen.
It definitely is insta-dry
The only thing I don't like about this is how many coats you need. Maybe it's just the shade I have, I don't know. They didn't have the color I have on here which is Ped(t)al Pusher. It also doesn't go on smoothly. You can see the itsy-bisty ridges in my nails when I apply this.
I have one called jade lump and quick sand. They take literly one or two strokes per nail to get on. The brush is a great size and the polish isn't too thin. It dries fast like it's supposed too and lasts me a couple days (which is great for me because I'm rough on my nail haha).
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.
