Hello gentle readers.
Happy Caturday! It is the weekend, at last. And a perfect day to show you something really pretty. Meet Sally Hansen Insta Dry In a Flurry. In some pics, and at a casual glance, this looks like just another black base with silver shimmer. But it isn't. Oh, no siree. It is far, far more. This polish is not black, it is a very dark greyed blue jelly base that is packed, packed, I say with shimmer that fires gold, blue, green, silver, purple and hot pink.
I said that this polish is really pretty? I lied. It is actually kinda seriously gorgeous. This swatch is three coats and Seche Vite.
Trust me when I tell you, as pretty as this is in photographs, in person, it is so much better.
See what I mean? Even my crap camera couldn't completely kill the beauty and the many colours that spark forth from this beautiful polish. It tried... But the polish triumphed.
The formula on this polish is quite fantastic. It is a jelly, it flowed nicely off of that big, wide Sally Hansen brush, sat sweetly down where it was placed and whispered smoothly up my nails. The first coat was a little thin and streaky but by coat number three, the finish was impeccable, opaque, smooth, shiny, deeply glossy. I didn't have to do a lot of cleanup as there was no nonsense upon application, no running, pooling, bubbling or dragging. Dry time is pretty decent, a fast dry top coat will definitely help with that.
What do you think of Sally Hansen Insta Dry In a Flurry? Do you own this polish? Think that you might like to? I found mine at my local Walgreen's, if I remember correctly. It shouldn't be too hard to find and make your very own.
Have you entered my giveaway? I am giving away a bottle of Sally Hansen X-Treme Wear in Pumpkin Spice, a LE polish from their Fall 2011 collection. It's really easy, just let the Rafflecopter widget load and go to it.
Thank you so much for popping in and reading. Have a wonderful weekend and may your polish never bubble.
