This is a very pretty blue. I love the colour selection in the Insta-Dri line. I like the formula as well; the polish goes on quite nicely in one coat, I just apply an extra for good measure.
Everyone seems to love the Insta-Dri brushes! I guess I'm alone in not loving them. It has a very wide and sort of tapered brush, which isn't a big deal, but I don't love it because I find I have less control - especially on my super tiny nail beds!
The price for this is pretty good, at about $4.99CAD at Walmart, I believe.
My only problem other than the not loving the brush, is this polish really doesn't hold up as well over time as some of my other nail colours. I've used this colour a lot, and the leftover polish just kind of dries and sticks to the sides of the bottle.
Overall, this colour has good application, it's pretty and bright, and fairly inexpensive. I would recommend giving this one a shot.

This is a great nail polish and i love the brush! I only need on coat and it stays true to the color in the bottle! I wear this color on my toe nails because it's a little too bold for me to wear on my finger nails. :)

I adore these insta-dri polishes. They make it so easy to quickly slap on a color that will look bold and opaque in one swipe. The brush is flat and made to be able to cover the nail bed in color with just one swipe down the center...and this works for the pinky and sort of with the ring finger, but the others, I still do the typical one down the center, one down each side. But it does dry quickly. This is key for me being a mother to a toddler... I rarely have time to sit with a polish curing for hours and having to apply 3 coats. One thing to note, these polishes DO stain VERY bad when you remove the polish. This really doesn't bother me too much, though, because within a couple handwashings or a shower it is gone. This Brisk Blue polish is a medium clear blue. Its very bold and I actually like it on both toes and fingernails. You get 0.31 fl oz/9.17 ml in the bottle...I purchased mine at Target for about $4.50..somewhere along those line..maybe just over $5.00...and sometimes I feel that for half the amount of an OPI, they could knock the price down by a buck or two.... I can purchase an OPI for $7.99 and get double the product (But at the same time, wouldn't get the guaranteed opaque in one coat and quick drying time toss up between what your wants are when you are purchasing a polish)

I would repurchase this.

I loved this product until I tried to take it off. The color is gorgeous and it dries as fast as it claims that it will, and I really like the bigger brush, made application a lot easier. However, I didn't put a base coat under this stuff and wow! it's impossible to get it off. Not only did it stain my nails but it stained my fingertips for a couple of days. My opinion of the product might change if I try it with a base coat but I am a little afraid to try it again, my nails are still a lovely shade of dyed blue a week later.

love sally hansen's new brushes, it makes it so easy for uncoordinated idiots like me to do my own nails =o) i love the color, its perfect for summer and so pigmented, you really only need one coat to cover although it does chip quickly. and talk about getting it to come off! book a twenty minute appt with your nail polish remover to get this color out of your nailbeds.

Love this color! It's a deep creme sky blue that reminds me a lot of Color Club's All In. It has a wide brush and dries very quickly, AND it's opaque in one coat! Yay! Perfect for pedicures, but I've got it on my tips today. Now if I could only find SH's Honeydew...
