♥ Sally Hansen Insta Dri 'Teal Take-Off' ♥

 Sally Hansen Insta Dri " Teal Takeoff" 2 coats


 ♥ Sorry I don't have a fabulous mani for this evening = instead I am posting a mani from last week ♥


Well... the formula on this is magnificent, it is a richly pigmented color and dries super duper fast. The color is beautiful & I will definitely be wearing it again soon. I purposely wore it without a top coat for 2 days, and then applied another coat and added t.c. for photos. The brush and brush stem and handle.... sigh...... I want to practice using this type of brush & stuff, just in case I wake up in some alternate dimension where ALL nail polish is like this,= short stumpy handles, a huge rectangle brush stem, and a wide brush.

Though I must add there are alot of positives with the Insta Dri's; the formula, dry time and colors selection are fabulous. So I am not giving up. I imagined painting my toes with this would be difficult, but it wasn't that bad. My toes look fabulous even after 6 days with no T.C. As with all things = Practice makes perfect.

Anyhoo - here is Sally Hansen Teal Take-off, 2 coats with 2 coats of Nailene Acrylic Strong T.C. Before I took this off I did a layering of Sally Hansen 'Lavender Envy' on my Pinky's, and got a nice sunshine photo of it..... You can see at the tips of most of my nails there is alot of bare spots & streaking. This was my first attempt with the Inst Dri's, And I only bought this becuase it was half price = of course.... ( reg $5.99 CAD on sale for $2.99 CAD ).





 Sunshine - woo-hoo On my pinky is 2 coats of S.H. 'Lavender Envy'


@1 coat

 

@ 2 coats

 

2 coats with T.C.

Lovely! I got the color as well and love it to death! Try to wear it with China Glaze "Atlantis" as a TopCoat, the result is pure magic!
