I absolutely adore this product!! I always buy sally Hansen insta-dry polishes when I want a color for a specific occasion when I'm going to be wearing a color I don't wear on a daily basis and I don't want to buy a high end polish. I bought this polish for prom and it went perfectly with my dress and looked very professional. I would recommend adding a top coat. This product does not last as long as other polishes but it is perfect for single use!
Pros: 1) Full coverage with one coat. 2) Fast drying. 3) The color is pretty much true to what you see on the computer.
Cons: 1) Stains the cuticle/skin immediately so be VERY careful with application to not get the polish on the any part of your skin/fingertip. OR keep nail polish remover handy. I got the CinnaSnap color (one of the darkest) so maybe that's why it had such a staining effect. 2) The applicator brush is wide. Ok for fingernails. Not so great for pinky toes. Be careful again with application. 3) Wipe off brush before applying or the polish will drip down onto your nail and you'll end up with a gloppy mess of too much polish. Basically all cons have to do with application. So once you've mastered using this brush/polish, things should be much easier! I'd probably buy this again, but in a lighter color to stear clear of errors.

Got this for my stepdaughter to go with her dress. She loves it. The color is pretty and the product is easy to use. It's sheer but the glitter in it makes it pop.

This polish does dry fast as promised, but chips and wears of fast so you need to apply every couple days. After using this brand/type for a few months, my nails are splitting ALOT.

The product took forever to dry and just kept messing up even after I waited a while for it to dry.

Dries very quickly as promised. Has to be applied very carefully, so it doesn't clump. I saw in another review to use a topcoat, because this polish chips faster than others. I used the Sally Hansen quick drying topcoat, but that's ruined by this polish now--the bristles of the brush are now glued together. But it worked--I'm on Day 8 with very little chipping at the tips. You wouldn't even notice unless you were looking. Next time, I will wait until this polish is FULLY dried, then apply a regular topcoat.

This is so pale, it's close to white. Not just on my skin, but in the bottle also. Very disappointing.

I ordered 2 different colors of this polish, neither really looked like the picture. Its not a huge deal, but its kind of frustrating. It does dry fast. I used it on my toes, it stayed for a couple days, nothing super impressive, but better than other polishes I've tried in the past! I like the polish, I just wish the pictures of the colors were more accurate.

Ordered "The Queens Velvet" thinking it would be a deep color & it's not at all as shown. It's a much lighter sparkly pink.

Gain-Mo-MINT-Um is a very light baby blue. No "mint" at all.
Alexis from Bement, IL
I ordered Catch Me if You Clam, which states it's a burnt orange. I thought this would be perfect for fall. However, it's very much a coral orange color. Although nice, it's definitely not what I wanted or look like the picture online.
Lauren from Louisville, KY
I ordered Pink Blink and Heather Hustle. The pink is fine, but Heather Hustle is not the same color as advertised online. It is SO light it's almost white. When I painted it on my daughter's nails it just looks white. Disappointed because we have been searching for the perfect light purple polish and we thought we found it.

This line is typically my go to if I want to just put on a coat and go.

Have used this in multiple colors and some stay on better than the others, but none of them are very good. Would last maybe 2-3 days before flaking off.

I am not one to do my finger nails because I'm too busy and cant sit and wait for them to dry. I tried this polish and absolutely love it!! I don't have to wait forever to use my hands or mess up my nails. This is perfect for me!! Highly recommend

I bought the "mauve it" color and it's not at all light coral pink. it's not even in the pink spectrum of color. it's peach...not pink...peach.
Angie from IL
When putting it takes a couple coats to cover then once dry it's cracked looking rough and not glossy at all. Very disappointing!
Crystal from Ca
Nail polish did not apply well
Shannon from Graham WA
Takes quite a bit to achieve much sparkle. By the time you're using it as a sparkly coat over another color (this one has almost no color on its own) it's not so quick to dry. Was hoping for a rose gold effect over pink paint, but it didn't work.

Not bad. Only did 2 coats, lasted for days before it started chipping.

I've always been impressed with how easy this nail polish is to use. It glides on nicely with a smooth application and dries down quickly so there's very little time to make a mistake and smudge them. Even at 30 years old I still have issues not touching things while my nails are drying. I also really like the tip that's in these bottles and wish other brands would pick up on how great the flatter tip is. Make it's much easier to push down at the cuticle to get a good fan of the brush so you only have to do 2 swipes even if you're working with larger sized nails. Highly recommend this product because of ease of use, consistency of the product year after year and the color line is wonderful.

I think this lives up to its "one swipe and you're done" promise, and that contributes to being done with your nails and ready to go in like 15 mins. However, like other reviewers have said, the color online is not accurate. I thought Hail Cherry would be a good dupe for Cajun Shrimp, but it pulls SO orange (possibly a skin tone thing). It's still a fun color for summer, but not what i thiught i was getting. Based on other reviews, would be worried about this with other colors and it wouldn't be worth saving $4

The colors are not how they appear online. I ordered racing rose, Heather hustle, and gain momentum and they are basically white with the smallest hint of color. Very disappointing. You need to apply a few coats to make it not see-through.
Jaqui from California
This is a horrible product. It's very hard to apply and gooey. You need to work quickly with this or it's streaky. The color is NOT true to what is shown on the website. I got racing rose which should be a deep pink but it's actually baby pink.
This polish is difficult to apply. It's gooey and dried streaky if you don't use enough and work quickly. Also, I ordered racing rose because it looked more like a deep pink but this is actually a baby pink. Almost looks kind of white. I have to use about three coats otherwise is very see through. It dries fairly quickly but i do use a blow dryer otherwise the bottom layers don't dry quick and I'll mess them up if I'm not careful with my hands. Not happy with this purchase at all but it is what it is.

I can't believe this is still be sold. All fast dry polishes chip quickly but this is the worst. I am talking with an hour. How is this still on the market ? Garbage.
