Let me start off by saying I’ve been painting my nails for more than 40 years. Now you may think I’m older than dirt, but I know a thing or three about make-up. I do my own nails and have for years. I’ve neglected my nails for long periods of time, especially when my son was small, I was going to school and working full time. I discovered Sally Hansen Insta- Dry Top coat a few years ago. Before I discovered this awesome top coat, painting my nails was usually an ordeal, that’s why I did it so rarely.
This top coat changed everything for me. That sounds corny, but when you don’t have a lot of time to wait around for your nails to dry, you just don’t do your nails. I now do my nails before I go to bed. You heard correctly, right before I go to bed. No sheet imprints, smudges, anything. It is simply amazing.
My co-workers tease me because I have different polish on every other day. I’m in to nail art these days, so I go a little longer with the same polish. You simply apply your regular polish, wait two minutes, and then apply the Insta-Dri. After 30 seconds, it’s dry to the touch. I go to bed, and wake up with a perfect manicure. Our two dogs sleep with us, and I toss and turn a lot when I sleep, but nothing smudges my polish. I only wish this stuff came in a bigger bottle. It works with any brand of polish. Try it; you will be glad you did. I usually buy it at Wal-Mart for under $5. When I’ve used the top coat with Sally Hansen polish, it looks like a gel manicure, and lasts for days without a touch up. It’s nice to find a product that actually does what it’s advertised to do.
