I use this polish as a top coat and I must say it gives me the effect I'm looking for. My nails have this wet shine that I like, it holds my polish under it very well, not cracking, not fading, no chipping and it dries fast. The brush is wide and I like it as well. Mine did not get clumpy at all but I'm half way through the bottle maybe it will later but so far for the price it is a very good product.
When I first tried this line I was so impressed. It dries in less than 2 minutes. I HATE waiting for my nails to dry so this is awesome! The brush is big but I like it. I already have five colors and I will purchase more colors.
Not overly impressed with this clear polish as it is quite thick in viscosity, but definitely dries quick. My biggest issue is this isn't as durable as other clear polishes I have used in the past. I find after only a few days this chips and comes off in chunks along with the polish I'm trying to protect. Not planning on repurchasing and would recommend Rimmel Faster 60 Seconds Top Coat to this polish. Like Sally Hansen it's readily available in drugstores and very inexpensive, but less viscous and way more durable in my opinion.
LOVE this clear coat! I go through so much that i stocked up last week and bought 7 bottles. Let me just say it DOES dry FAST. I start on my pinky and by the time im too my thumb it's dry. I use this as a top coat literally everytime i paint my nails. Even with my polish still wet i can run this overtop with no smudging. If you do chose to do that be sure to wipe the brush on a paper towel just to insure no colors make it to the bottle. It gives mega high shine and prevents chipping. This is in my opinion the only top coat worth using.
i wouldn't buy this polish again, it works fine as a base coat but as a top coat it smears everything below it, the first time i used this i did nail art with cheap nail polish i got in hk and it conpletely smeared the red onto the green and white, then, i thought it was the nail polish's fault, i tried this again this time using opi&sally hansen and it smeared again..i bought another top coat and am currently using this as a base coat only. i wouldn't recommend buying this continued >>
Have this in the clear coat. After a few uses, it became such a thick consistency and it honestly just sucks....I won't buy again and I'll probably just put more money towards a better fast drying nail polish.
This is an absolute HG staple for me (which is saying a lot, because I'm extremely fickle when it comes to beauty products!). I've been using this for years, and have repurchased so many times I've lost count. I have used it as both a top and base coat, and it does SUCH a great job. It is a fabulous base coat for toes, as it prevents yellowing or other polishes discoloring your nails and dries very quickly. But it is by far the best top coat (for both hands and feet) I have ever used. It dries in minutes and creates a protective layer that is very hard and shiny. I would recommend this without hesitation to anyone.
Love this clear polish. I use it both as a base coat and top coat. It dries super quick and the wide brush means I can cover my entire nail in one stroke. If they only made this with glitter...
Can't stand this polish! Sally Hansen suggested this as a topcoat for other Insta-Dri colors, so I picked it up on sale. All it does is smear the color below!! Then I tried it over a non fast drying polish (which was completely dry) and it did the same thing. It's completely useless unless you are using it alone with no base coat. I do recommend the other Insta-Dri polishes though.
I bought this just to paint my nails using my Melon pigment, but oh my gosh it works so well! It really does dry quick and my nails look fantastic! I would absolutely repurchase again.
