Excellent Product!! This is a clear nail polish in a red bottle. I love it! It works over acrylics and natural nails. If you follow the instructions on the back, I believe it is even better than SV and other, more expensive products. Unlike those products the shine lasts longer and this stuff dries even faster. Love it!!
I hope I'm reviewing the right product-the one I have comes in a red bottle. You apply it two minutes after you paint your nails and it claims to be dry "to the touch" 30 seconds later. I love this stuff. I am majorly impatient with letting my nails dry and 9 times out of 10 will smudge or nick my freshly painted nails. This does not COMPLETELY dry your nails, so it is still possibly to smudge them, but it really does make them dry "to the touch" and I've noticed I really don't smudge or nick my nails hardly at all now that I use this. It makes your nails shiny so there is no need for a topcoat, although I do use one sometimes anyway.
Love this! I was using Poshe, but I hated that my nails chipped the next day and got worse everyday after. While it doesn't dry as fast as Poshe (It may bubble if you put it on right after you put on nail polish so let it dry a might and it may get minor sheet marks if you do them right before bed). It does dry fairly quickly though and I started getting chips about 4 days in and they are minor. I am really rough with my nails so I always expect chips by then.
Edit: It makes my nails get some ripple effect and they peel off! :(
I really like these polishes! They come in beautiful rich colors, they dry super fast (even without my Seche Vit top coat!) and they last for days! I only knocked a lippy off because they tend to stain my nails a bit after taking them off, so that kinda sucks. But I would still repurchase!
I don't write up a lot of reviews, but when I use a product that lives up to the hype I have to jump on board and say "yes! Me too!"
I have only recently got back into doing my nails on a regular basis and my stash from years before was depleted and sad. No top or base coat so I picked up a 2in1 from OPI (start to finish) on the recommendation of a SA. But I had problems with chipping and my manicures only lasted 2 or 3 days. And took ages to dry.
I wanted to try Seche Vite, but it's a bit pricey and people do complain about shrinkage and loss of colour/effect so I picked up this Insta-Dri until such time I could pick up a SV.
I'm on the 4th day of my manicure and still shiny, no chipping or peeling - a real first. considering I hated the application of this NP (NOPI Iceberg Lotus) and had some issues with unevenness and coverage, once I sealed it up with the SH insta-dri I had no further problems. The colour comes through bright and sparkly.
I've been using my nails to do all sorts of things that would normally chip or scratch NP but so far it looks great. I'm really pleased and I think I'll just forgo the SV and spend that $$ on something else :)
I love this stuff! I have the Insta-Dri top coat and like four different colors. I'm extremely impatient with my nails and even when it seems like I give them enough time to dry, I still mess them up. So this stuff is perfect for me. I can't say they chip faster than other polishes because I'm so challenged when it comes to doing my nails.. I get chips within a day or two regardless of the polish I'm using. I'd like to say that this polish takes longer to chip but I can't promise that. Even so, the amount of time I save not sitting around waiting for my nails to dry makes up for chipping in my mind.
This really does dry quickly but it doesn't keep my manicure looking good for long. Within the day, my polish is peeling off like a mofo. Will not repurchase.
Wow. I can actually paint my nails and no smudge them. I used to end up with scuffed up nails no matter how long I left them to dry. This really does dry to the touch in 30 seconds. Give it 5 more mins and you can go about your regular routine with no worries. I've done numerous set of dishes and not even a little chip.
This is my favorite top coat next to Seche Vite! A couple of minutes after my nail polish has tried, I apply the Insta-Dri Top Coat and it dries very quickly and helps protect my nails from nicks and smudges. If I didn't use this top coat right after I painted my nails - I'd be left with smudged and scuffed up nails all of the time. My local drugstore has sales on Sally Hansen quite frequently (or it seems like it at least).. so I make sure to always buy a back up when it's only a few dollars. Will continue repurchasing.
Ok i know I used it on top of a cheap polish but my nails chiped the same day I putted it, wont buy this again for sure.
