Most Helpful Positive Review Ocean Approved!
I received this as a Free Sample for my 100% honest review. Sally Hansen nail polish Insta-Dri over succeeded my expectations! Receiving the Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Flashy Fuchsia was the exact color I wanted, I absolutely love pink nail polish. My first opinion of reading the nail polish & how its supposed to dry instantly did not convince me until I tried it. I even tried to use another nail to put a dent in the nail polish but I could not, it literally dried fast! This was the first nail polish that did what it said it would. I am impressed with Sally Hansen on putting out Insta-Dri Nail Polish that literally dried Instantly! After my nails were painted, which keep in mind I had to do two coats, I wanted to put them to the test! I live in walking distance to the beach & wanted to see what the ocean water would do & how picking up shells would take a toll on my nails. Sally Hansen Insta-Dri aced the test! I mean I had a tiny chip but it wasn't no big deal! I plan on purchasing Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in the future!
Most Helpful Critical Review Dries moderately fast. Quality needs to be improved.
I admit, I have not used this nail polish in over a few months. When I grabbed it out of my nail polish box, the color was severely separated and required me a good five minutes of rubbing it in my hands to get the color to look normal.
Putting it on my nails, I noticed the polish was way too runny and often overflowed onto my fingers and paper, even when I made sure to use only enough polish to cover what is needed.
Unlike the forty-five minutes it takes to dry my nails with other brands, this polish dried in roughly twenty and didn't really go through that awkward gel stage where it appears dry but is still wet.
Looking at my nails an hour later, I have noticed a lot of bubbles on my nails, and my nails really look like I just dipped them in purple paint instead of looking like a salon manicure.
Though it was fast drying, there were a lot of quality issues that I have experienced that does not make this product worth buying again.

Gain Mo Mint Um
Carol M from Elk Grove, CA
I love the polish, I love the formula etc. I am only writing a review to let other shoppers know, if you are going for the mint color (Gain Mo Mint Um), choose another color. This one is not mint at all, it's full on baby blue. If you want baby blue, great....it's beautiful. But if you chose a mint to get....I don't know...MINT...choose another because you'll be disappointed. I already have like five baby blue colors so this was a bummer for me.
A Nice Sparkly top coat
Heidi from Blackwood, NJ
Use as a top coat or a nice clear sparkly coat for your nails

I would buy this again
Pool girl from Southern Oregon
Love the color, but it took several coats to do the job. There for it doesn't dry quickly.
Anna from Sa
I polished my nails. The color didn't last and it didn't dry as fast as it said.
Tami from Seminole, FL
Great polish for little ones who want their nails painted and yet can't wait for them to dry!
Depths from Boise
It goes on nice but the applicator picks up so much of the product on the top of the wand and it drips everywhere. Took more like 5 minutes to completely dry, not quick dry.
Color not what was expected
Spikes Mom from Long island
The color selected was espresso, which implies a cocoa or chocolate color. This nail polish is dusty rose. Not a hint of espresso color in it. However, the color is nice. Just not what i was looking for.

I got this one broken
Love this brand of Sally Hansen
Gmaklc from Carmel IN
Really loves this polish for the many different, cute colors to choose from & how easy it goes on my nails.It also dries quickly
Insta-Dry? More like Insta-chip!
Ulysses Unicorn from Brooklyn, NY
I bought it in the color hail cherry. The person who said that this color is a muted terra-cotta is smoking crack, but it is not red either. It is orange! And not even a reddish orange it's a flat out orange. Even with the shade being incorrect I was excited because it dried incredibly fast. But then it chipped within an hour. By the end of the day every single nail had a chip. But those first 15 minutes I was about to buy every single color. They really need to improve this because it's almost amazing.
I would not buy this again.
Linda from Rochester,NY
Sparkles are large and it's clumpy just doesn't look nice.
Nice Summer color
Amanda from Cleveland, OH
Beautiful color and formula. A little bald spot on the first coat as if it had some unmixed oil in it.
The product seems good, however, the color is horrible
Michele from Las Vegas, NV
I had to mix another color into it as it made my hands look horrible
Mel from California
I bought this due to the positive reviews and the instant dry claim. It does try pretty fast but it is so streaky. I had to apply 3-4 coats to get an even application but that is way too many coats for me. It looked thick! Disappointed. Would not recommend.
Great nail polish!
Autumn from USA
I got the ASAP Apple (bright red) and Heather Hustle (light purple), but I've only tried the red so far. The color is exactly what I wanted! It took 5 minutes to paint my nails and maybe half an hour to dry (maybe less, but I'm cautious with my nails lol). I only had to do one coat, just like it says. I'm on day 5 so far and my nails only just started chipping a little bit. Great buy!
Very Nice consistency!!
Summer from Phoenix, AZ
Super pretty color...heather hustle...much lighter than shown in photo....almost white with slightest lavender tinge....just what I wanted!!!
HAIL CHERRY BOTTLE PICTURE LOOKS RED BUT ISN'T
MAKEUPER from MEMPHIS, TN
THE COLOR HAIL CHERRY BOTTLE PICTURE LOOKS LIKE BRIGHT RED BUT ACTUAL BOTTLE AND POLISH COLOR I RECEIVED IS A MUTED TERRACOTTA. THE LABEL ON MY BOTTLE DID SAY HAIL CHERRY.
Slick Vic from phoenix
Confetti Pop and Hail Cherry aren't the color they appear to be on screen. the "pink" base on confetti Pop is more of a lilac mauve than a bubblegum pink. It's also pretty sheer. Hail Cherry leans way more pink than it does red. The formula is BOMB though! love these!
Yvonne from Huntington beach
This is the best, lasts for ages and looks like professional nails
Quick drying is the best
Asia from Princeton, NJ
I've purchase so many of these and I love them for how fast they dry. I don't have the time or patience for my finger nails to dry. Some of them last longer than others and some of them come out more sheer than others and some also have a less beautiful color, but same with most brands of nail polish depending on the color.
Emommie from Brick, NJ
I love the color and the staying power of the polish. It does not dry in 60 seconds.
Brit from Wisconsin
Ok formula, dries very quickly but chipped after 2 days. Easy to remove. I got a deep wine color and it is very pretty. Also the brush hairs are not even length so I get polish quite a bit on my skin around the nails, kind of annoying. Won't buy any more from this range.
worst nail polish i've ever used
Morgan from Washington, D.C.
I bought the white one, and it's the stickiest, goopiest nail polish I've ever used. The brush is so thick it's hard to apply and it goes on really unevenly. It also didn't dry very fast, which defeats the whole purpose. Definitely won't buy this again.
