I love the way this product is quick and easy to apply. It really dries fast and unlike other products that claim to dry quickly, it does not clump or come off the next day. I LOVE this product. The colors are gorgeous!

I got the shades Rapidly Rosy and Chocolate Grape from a drugstore that was going out of business - Rapidly Rosy is a dark purple-red with a very fine golden shimmer, and Chocolate Grape is a dusty medium brown with a hint of purple and gray in it. I found the formula on these to be great - I used two coats to get an opaque manicure, and the polish was just right in consistency (not too thick or too thin). The brush was just slightly wider than other nail polish brushes which I liked, because I didn't have to go over the nail too many times to fully cover it. The polish dried quickly and looks great. Overall I think this is a solid choice.

Not impressed with this brand of polish as a whole. There are a few nice colors but overall I think I will stick to Essie.
First of all, I can't find the full line ANYWHERE. I can only find the new spring collection in the drugstores near me, so not very pleased with that.
Second, the formula. BLECK. Of the four colors I own, only 3 are really any good, and even then they aren't so great. The formula doesn't settle particularly well and streaks like crazy. Due to the "50 second dry time" you have to work in really thick layers or it dries in streaks. And working in thick layers means more chances for bubbles and unevenness.
Moving onto the colors that I own: (all four are a part of the spring 2012 collection)
PEACHY PETAL (60): This one is the worst of the bunch. The color is a very light pastel peachy color that I should have run away from. The color makes me look sickly and weird. The formula is also awful. It dries streaky and uneven. Into the trash it goes.
TULIP TANGO (70): Tulip Tango dries a hot pink-ish color with some peach tones throw in. This one I actually quite like. It coats evenly, but takes a few layers to get really opaque.
LOVE ME LAVENDER (80): This one is a lighter and less blue version of Essie's play date, which I greatly prefer. This one is thin and takes around 3 coats to get really opaque.
ORCHIDS OH MY (30): My mom LOVES this color. She likes a thinner application of polish. This one is a pretty thin formula, but the color is a very vibrant dark fuscia. I like it well enough.
So overall, the brand is eh. I think if you want to spend the money, go to Target and get some Essie polishes. They apply more opaque and less streaky and you can find almost the exact same colors as these four I have.

Express Finish has a huge color selection, dries real fast,and are always on sale from online sellers. I gravitate towards these polishes because I don't like waiting too long for my nails to dry after painting them. Maybe I am a bit impatient but clipping and cleaning nails take lots of time already.

I bought 3 Maybelline nail polishes for the first time ever. They are from the limited edition spring/summer collection 2012: Peachy Petal, Orchids Oh my! and Posy Pink. Initially I was looking for Essie's Tart Deco ($11.00) but then when I saw Maybelline's Peachy Petal for less $6.00 I quickly changed my mind. I swatched them both while at the drugstore and I didn't see any difference. Is Peachy Petal the dupe for Tart Deco? I think so and that's why I bought it.
They are creamy and opaque, applied 1 dose of base coat+2 coats of nail polish, they dried quick, they last longer enough until the next color (I change colors twice a week, but Peachy Petal lasts about 1 week), the formula feels light on the nails (some nail polishes give a weight as if they were solid caps covering the nails), another brand added to my nail polish collection.
I probably would buy this line again, depending on the creamy colors available and price tag. : )
Final note: looooooove Maybelline's Peachy Petal, Orchids Oh My! and Posy Pink nail polishes. <3

I bought Tulip Tango (a bright pinky coral creme) & Posy Pink (a medium carnation pink creme) from the Limited Edition Spring 2012 Collection. These are my first Maybelline polishes & definitely my last! The first thing I noticed was the brush - ugh, it is TERRIBLE!! It's too stiff or something, I couldn't apply the polish evenly, either using thin or thicker coats. Also, the formula applies super streaky with absolutely no self-leveling, so three coats at minimum is required for full coverage. Crappy brush + no self-leveling formula = recipe for disaster. I'm so bummed b/c Tulip Tango was the color I was hoping Essie Cute As A Button (a slightly reddish coral creme) would be, but I just can't get over the brush & formula. I'll be returning these to Rite-Aid for sure.

I love this nail polish however it does have a couple cons. I have two colors and LOVE them both but of course they are limited edition. They do dry very quickly but i sometimes need 3 coats because they sometimes go on streaky, even when brand new but with a third coat and a top coat i can deal with it you also need to be careful to do thin coats if you want the advantage of fast dry.

I own one of these polishes in onyx rush, which is just a regular black. It's very opaque, not goopy, and dries very quickly. One of my favorite polishes. I've used it quite a bit and it's not even half gone yet nor has it dried up and turned thick and gross like a lot of other polishes I have.

I had extremely low hopes for this product but I was proven wrong! I only have one color (bubble pink), but I love it! It dries quickly. Better than any other nail polish I own right now. It's also a nice opaque color that lasts a decently long time. I was very impressed!

It does dry fast, even when putting on 2 (thin) coats, which is necessary for nearly all of their colours. I didn't use this product for years because the first time I used it, the 'express finish'-formula appartantly was only valid for the first thin coat. They seemed to have solved that problem, the 40sec Acid Plum I bought last week dries quickly, even with 2 regular layers.
They have a variety of colours (pro!), which change frequently (so stock when you find a colour you love), aren't so expensive (I have to admit that any nailpolish over 2dollars seems expensive when Flormar is your HG), but the brush isn't great and they chip off on the first day if you don't use a topcoat, and with Sally H's topcoat I found it to chip on the 2nd day. no-chipping is an absolute must for me, so I'm not gonna buy it again unless I see an extremely appealing colour (must say, 310L acid plum is lovely). You can get better nailpolish for the same price (Loreal, Rimmel), or less (Flormar, Alix Avien).

Love these nail polishes!!!! They dry super fast have have an amazing variety of colors that all seem to work on my skin tone. The colors are both classic and on-trend! You can sometimes find them in $1 Stores, but don't let that fool you into thinking they are low quality. They tend to last a for years in the bottle without loss of quality or consistency. I especially favor the sparkly shades, lol. I think the quality is on par with OPI, China Glaze, Essie and other more expensive polishes :) I highly recommed!!

I got the dark cherry color and you get what you paid for really. It does dry super super fast (if you put on a thin coat) but with this color you need two coats to get the color. Second thin coat also dried very fast. It doesn't chip too much but definately does wear quickly but then again I didnt use a top coat. If you want fast drying go with this- best I have come across in terms of fast drying!!!
Age: 30-35 Skin: Very Dry, Neutral Hair: Brunette Eyes: Hazel
I love this stuff! It does dry super fast. I can do two coats back to back and in another minute, it's completely dry. I always use Revlon Colorstay Top Coat overtop of ANY nail polish I use. I am very active outside (have horses) so I'm constantly in water, cleaning stalls, doing physical work with my hands. And I can go a good 3 days with this plus the Colorstay top coat and still no chips. And even then it won't chip, but the edges start to wear.

i'm super impatient when it comes to polishing my nails, so this stuff is great in terms of how quickly it dries. only problem it that it chips on me really easily. today i polished my nails with this product at around noon, and by 5 i had to paint one of my nails over due to a large chip (although i did go to the gym and lifted weights which may be the reason). also, the brush isn't the greatest. i prefer the brush from the sally hansen insta-dri much more, although i found that one chips easily as well. overall, i love the colors and speed with which this polish dries, but never anticipate a manicure that lasts more than 2 days. i keep buying them though for those last-minute, i'm bored and feel like having pretty nails quickly moments, which is what they're ideal for!

Okay, these are the pros: 1) they do dry super fast. 2) the color selection is awesome and they put out new colors every so often. 3) dirt cheap, and I almost always have a coupon. And the cons are: 1) I think they chip really fast on me. 2) I hate the brush. It doesn't go on very smooth. 3) the formula is really thin and watery, so I need multiple coats to get an opaque color, which might explain partly why it chips! Well, I always get suckered into buying these polishes. I think the pros and cons balance out for me, but this isn't a must-have for me.

Love Express Finish polishes. They really do dry in less than a minute, and I rarely need more than two coats. Plus they always have new colors every season, and are reasonably priced. And they go on sale regularly and there are always coupons floating around, so I usually pay less than two bucks a bottle.

I got this nail polish in Onyx Rush 'cause I was looking for a plain old black polish. It dried quickly, which is good because I'm impatient and I hate waiting around. Unfortunately, like another reviewer noted, it also chipped quickly. Even more unfortunately, it took bits of my nails with it in the way that various other nail polishes rarely do. The nail polish in the bottle also got thick and semi-dried-out pretty quickly too.
On the plus side, the brush was decent and I think it would work if you don't do lots of things that cause chipping and don't have nails that like to peel.

I looove this nail polish. Wide variety of colours, dries super fast, lasts a week for me (with base coat and top coat). I can't stand polishes that take forever to dry. I do very detailed nail art and so the faster one layer dries, the sooner I can go to the next. All the colours I've ever bought have been perfect with just one coat, while with MAC I've always had to do 2-3 coats. It literally dries in 50 seconds, completely, unlike the claims of other quick dry polishes (Sally Hansen sooo doesn't dry fast). Great colours, great dry time, great coverage in one coat, cheap price, what isn't there to like?
Age: 30-35 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Black Eyes: Black
this is one of my best nail polish.
Quick to dry and have many beautiful colours.
eventhough i dont wear it anymore ( cz im too lazy ..) but this is recomended.

I have this in the 50-second drying formula.
While it dries extremely fast, it also chips really fast. It didn't even last one whole day on me. In fact, I put it on at night and by the time noon rolled around the next day, I already had a chip :(
Of course, fast drying polishes tend to be more fragile (why is that anyway?), so you can't expect super long wear from these. But I still think you should be able to get at least a couple of days out of it. The color selection is fabulous. I have some great limited edition colors that are glorious and sparkly for summer. I just with they wouldn't chip quite so fast!
