New Sally Hansen Insta-Dri polishes!

Good morning on this beautiful Sunday!

I've had the most wonderful weekend with my fiance. We cooked dinner together, did some day-time wine drinking while we started packing, and caught up on this season of Weeds. (HOMG. It's so good & I'm devastated it's the last season. :() Today we are meeting a friend at a bar on the ocean for even more day drinking LOL! Onto the polish!

I've been going ga-ga for Sally Hansen Insta-Dri's lately. The ones in my Helmer are getting new-found attention and I recently found these on a new LE display at my work (CVS)! I only picked up three, although I might be going back for another purple....hmmmm...

First up I have Freeze! Wowza what a GLOWING blue! It's JAM PACKED to the brim with bright blue mirco-fine glitter at almost appears as shimmer. Gah! I love this polish so much. One of my new favorite blues. This had the best formula of the three. Two coats, smooth formula.



Next up I have the disappointment of the bunch. Purple Haste looks like an amazing deep purple with blue & purple micro-fine glitter in the bottle. On the nail, it completely fell flat. Although I now realized topcoat would have helped immensely, which I did not use, it was dull and the micro-fine glitter didn't translate well. AND the brush was wonky and misshapen. I've seen better, Sally. Just saying.



Next up I have the front-runner of the bunch, In A Flurry. HOMG, Sally, do the damn thing! Seriously, this polish is jaw-dropping and reminiscent of the vintage Sally's I know and love. In A Flurry is a charcoal grey base, and LOADED (.....LOADED!..) with green and purple mirco-fine glitter. It is just stunning. This is two coats. LOVE!




Have a great Sunday!

  3. I have started to have my wish list open when I browse nail blogs. I am beginning to think that it is a mistake, because a lot of polishes end up there, Freeze included :D
