Lets spice things up with SallyHansen InstaDri and Crayola
Hello and welcome back to myglowjourney! Guess what?! Today I will review and swatches on Sally Hansen InstaDri and Crayola nail polishes! Not my usual, I know, but who doesn’t love a fresh manicure and beautiful nail color? I know I do.
If I were only obsessed with skincare life would be somewhat easier, but no, besides my skincare and makeup obsession I’m also nails obsessed.
Truth be told, my nail obsession came more from necessity.
I have thin, brittle crappy nails. I cannot settle for gel because my nails also grow pretty fast (according to my nail stylist is a sign of health ), which makes me need a refill every 2.5-3 weeks.
For a while, I took hair and nails vitamins, I tried specific treatments, nothing seems to work for me.
Well, it’ didn’t work, but also it didn’t stop me from at least trying to have my nails on point.
I’m a long time fan of Sally Hansen nail polishes, I’m using their Miracle Gel nail polish for years now, and I thought I was happily settled but no.
When a little box with 16 InstaDri and Crayola gorgeous nail polish bottles was handed to me my SallyHansen Nederland and Coty, I felt like a kid on the Christmas morning, pushed everything aside and start playing with them researching, swatching and photographing.
Sally Hansen InstaDri collection has 44 stunning colors fit for every occasion and mood, and the collection is now enriched with InstaDri x Crayola that added 7 new glam rock metallic shades.
InstaDri nail polishes retail for 5.99 each.
1 stroke. 1 coat. dries in 60 seconds
Covers in just one coat, brilliantly. The Perfectionist Brush™ contours to any nail, so color always glides on precisely, quickly, flawlessly. And, the exclusive Flexiglass Complex combines beautiful, brilliant shine and super-strong wear. So simple, so Sally.
How to apply
1 Apply one coat of Insta-Dri® to clean, dry, nails, and allow to dry for 1 minute.
2 Finish with Insta-Dri® Clearly Quick for best results.
3 You’ve completed your mani in record time!
Patience was never a virtue of mine.
I hate waiting, and that includes waiting for my nail polish to dry.
What ’I’m I supposed to do if I can’t move her hands for 30 minutes?
Quick and easy InstaDri sounds more up my alley
InstaDri nail polish is a 3in1 formula, which means it has the base and the top coat in it for a shiny, long-lasting manicure. However, there is a top coat sold separately.
I must give InstaDri a five out of five for pigmentation. True to the bottle colors in one stroke. Perfection
InstaDri is opaque in one coat; However InstaDrixCrayola I did prefer in the double coating. One layer was also ok but, you know the personal taste.
Love it. The texture is what you would expect from a top quality nail polish, is neither goopy or runny, just perfect.
The InstaDri brush was the perfect size for my nails. And a good brush makes the application a breeze and InstaDri bushes did not disappoint, not too soft not too hard, no streakiness no hairs coming loose.
InstaDri polish wore for around four-five days on me without a top coat. A tiny bit less lucky with InstaDryxCrayola that chipped on the third-day mark.
Best for: easy at home manicure.
Avoid it if: you are looking for a wear time similar to a gel nail.
Final Note: the Insta-Dri-ness means that if you don’t work quickly, the polish can start drying and create strike lines. If that happens, stick the brush back in the bootle, give it a quick shake, and get back to polishing.
