Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Fall 2011 polishes

Oh, Friday! Thank goodness you're here!

I have the day off today - it's going to be full of swatching and happy hour and a cookout. Today I have three polishes from Sally Hansen's Insta-Dri Fall 2011 collection. I came across these at the Dollar Tree, and since I missed out on Bronze Ablaze I was definitely ecstatic! BTW - have you guys seen the recent Insta-Dri LE's?! In A Flurry??? Duochrome shimmer?! No worries, swatches to come. Onto the polish!

First up I have Emerald Express, a deep turquoise shimmer polish with a slight hint of duochrome around the edges. I LOVE this color! It freakin' GLOWS man! Seeing these swatches makes me want to wear this as a full mani NOW. This is two coats of green magic. MAGIC.



Next up I have Ruby Rush, a black-based polish with heavy magenta/red shimmer. What a GREAT Fall color! Fall is my favorite time of the year for polish. Well, that and Christmas - all the greens come out then! ;) This polish strikes me as being very sexy yet sophisticated. Two coats.




Last but not least, I have Bronze Ablaze. After seeing swatches on Scrangie's blog I knew I had to have it. Alas, I was too late and I couldn't find it anywhere. Fate smiled upon that fateful day and I got the last one at Dollar Tree! The formula on this one wasn't nearly as smooth and creamy as the last two - it was runny and watery. Not unworkable, just threw me off from the bunch. Bronze Ablaze is an olive green and gold shimmer polish with serious brown undertones. WOW-ZA. Two coats. True love.



Have an amazing Friday!
