          Comments about Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Anti Chip Top Coat:

          How have I lived my life without this product and why hasn't this top coat not received more publicity?!

          My nails are fragile, thin and don't keep nail polish on, even Shellac doesn't stay on as long like it used to. My schedule is hectic and I have weirdo texture peeves about nail polish (some of you will get what I mean, lol).

          This top coat is nothing short of heavenly! I was skeptic because as long as this has been on the market and trying Sally Hansen (and even high end brand) nail products before have left me disappointed. I discovered the blessing of Shellac 5 years ago to help prevent my nails from painful breaks and making me prone to infections on my hands. I invested in Red Carpet Manicure at home manicures and I really enjoy the results but lately the polish hasn't been staying on as long--about a week and a half, not complaining but not the solid 3 weeks I used to have, even after switching to OPI's gel polish base and top. My hands are exposed to water more often so I do know the reason of the loss of manicure longevity.

          Here's the fix! A couple weeks ago I tried the new 3-D Sally Hansen topcoat and I was impressed but I was left wanting more. Since this product has been on the market awhile, I was skeptic but at half the price of the 3-D topcoat, I didn't have much to lose.

          I put on the topcoat without any preparation, probably even had lotion and dirt on my hands because I'm impatient and wanted to hurry to see how this works. I applied and the coat went on evenly and smoothly. To my amazement, in under one minute the coat was COMPLETELY dry. I am icked out about "sticky" and "gummy" polish and this was rock hard to not only the touch but even pressing down on the nail it was truly dry! This was incredible! I have now had my gel manicure color on flawlessly and brilliantly shiny thanks to this top coat. I love you Sally Hansen!!!

          I notice it isn't harsh on my cuticles too unlike my gel topcoats. My nails are still comfortably flexible and it looks "natural", not acrylic like. The odor isn't as bad as older polishes but I think we have become used to polish being nearly scentless. I haven't read the ingredients but I don't believe it is free of harmful chemicals (CDN prides its self on not having them in their Shellac line). I haven't had an opportunity to remove the polish yet, but that's the point! I don't want it to come off until I take it off and I'm accustomed to soaking off my my gel polish anyhow so no change there.

          I have been applying this daily right before I do dishes, and I do mean immediately before I put on rubber gloves and lotion.

          I hope you have as much success as I have with this perfect product!

          A Perfect Must-Have

          By Brit MI

          from Michigan

          Comments about Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Anti Chip Top Coat:

          I use OPI for almost everything - except for top coat. This product is by far the best top coat on the market, and it's super cheap to boot. Dries nails faster, protects your manicure for 10 days or more, and is super shiny. If I get lazy and skip a week doing my nails, I just put an extra coat of this on to protect may nails from chipping/breaking until I find time to do them. It's just perfect!

            I absolutely love this product! It gives me a quick dry and creates lasting shine without polish chipping for at least 1-2 weeks. I don't even bother getting manicures anymore, I just paint my own nails. Doesn't take long and I always recieve compliments on my polish! Everyone in my office always thinks I just had a manicure when I use this product over my own nail polish.

                  I've tried just about every top coat there is on the market and this one is by far the best. I tried purchasing the most expensive stuff from OPI and this stuff worked so much better than OPI...

                        This is the best top coat I have found to finish off the manicures I do. The high gloss shine it leaves is beautiful! Protects your polish and makes a mani last well over a week. Best of all it dries polish so incredibly fast so you can paint your nails at the last minute and not worry about ruining them by thru use after only a few minutes.
