Application Techniques:

After applying your favorite Sally Hansen Nail Color, wait two minutes, then apply one coat of Insta-Dri Anti-Chip Top Coat. Manicure will be dry to the touch in 30 seconds.

My Opinion:

I used to hate to apply nail polishes because I never had the patience to wait for it to dry, and most of the my nails are usually smudged.

I've recently found out about Sally Hansen Insta-Dry and now I actually enjoy changing my polishes all the time.

This top coat really dries your polishes within a minute, and my only complain is that is doesn't work with my Konad special polishes, I can't apply this topcoat over my Konad, unless I wait for a full 10 minutes for it to dry completely, otherwise it'll still smudge.


  1. The Konad top coat doesn't take too much time to dry. You could put that one first and then this one. Good review.
