Sally Hansen Insta -Dri Nail Enamel

Want an your nails painted and pretty in a minute or less? These new( ish) Sally Hansen Insta- Dri's do the trick.

I was amazed at just how fast these dry. I painted my nails, put the cap on the bottle and was able to immdiately wash my hair. Before I began the hairwashing part , they were dry. Hard dry, so that after washing, they looked fine. Finally a nail polish you can apply and go right to sleep, no sheet smudges. This I need.

I had used fast dry polishes years ago, but hadn't tried any new ones. I always found them to chip too fast, like the next day. These are a bit tougher. I still got tip wear fast but then that can happen to me with regular polish. I tend to get tip wear quickly. Also, I didn't apply a top coat right away and once one was applied, the wear was better. I did use base coat( the also new Quick Care Growth Treatment Stick).

The brush is a new style and wide to help paint faster with less mess. I tend to make a mess all over my finger edges normally, and my nails are narrow, so I did still do that but it was definitely less. I kind of liked the brush though. I need to work with it more.

Insta -Dri comes in a full color range. My favs are in the picture- Jumpin Jade, Pronto Purple and Quick Sand.

Retail is approx. 4.95

Interesting content.

Just wanted to share some information that may help busy professionals caught up with work and who have less time to maintain their nails. You can try out gel nails which are now becoming a hot favorite as they are natural looking even without nail tips and the best way for nail enhancement. Also, if you are allergic to those strong smelling chemicals which you can experience with acrylic nails, then you should use gel nails as these are odorless.

However, when you are planning on gel nail application, make sure you approach a nail salon or a nail artist who is well versed with gel nails and is properly trained and mastered in gel applications. This will save you from problems that can arise with improper gel nail applications.

Good information.

I came across many queries in several forums where people have been asking for advice on the best glue that can be used on nails and that is not only strong but also safe on nails. This was the same question I had sometime back when I used to apply nail gel myself. Initially the glue I got would never hold on the way it used to when done in the salon. I then came across the nail glue being sold on gel-nails which lasts very long and is pretty easy to apply. It provides a strong bonding for my nails and also does a great job in repairing the nail tips.

Most important of all is that this is strong glue I was actually looking out for and this is used by nail salons and nail artists for professional applications. It is available at a cheap price at gel-nails and I remember seeing it at a discount of 74% which is great. Maybe this can help if you also face problems relating to poor glue quality as I did earlier.
