Sally Hansen Insta-Dri and Miracle Gel Top Coat Review


Hi, friends! Long time, no write! In case you are not aware, I've been spending a TON of time on my PerseveringStar YouTube channel (would love it if you'd check it out) and, clearly, not as much here on the blog. However, I received some awesome Sally Hansen polishes to review for you and I decided since it had been a while (and I do still want to keep PerseveringStar "the blog" in fine operating order), I decided to do so here. First, as always, the pics!
Here are the products featured in this post. From left to right: Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Silver Stallion and Petal to the Metal and Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Color Filters Top Coat in Strobe.

On all but ring finger, two coats of PttM. On ring finger, two coats of SS.

Same as above with the addition of one coat of Strobe.

I have never made a secret of the fact that I LOVE Sally Hansen's signature wide brushes. They make application a breeze and definitely shorten the process. I found both of the Insta-Dri polishes not only fast drying but also very smooth and fairly opaque in two coats. I'm also VERY fond of Strobe. It is just one of a new series of "Color Filters" top coats that each offer a special effect to your nails. In this case, it is a metallic pink-y shimmer, and I LOVE it! I suspect the effect will be far more visible over cream polishes than they were over these already metallic/chrome-y shades and I will definitely share pics once I try it over such a shade. But even though the effect was subtle over these two particular shades, I got many compliments on this mani and even after a week, I have only minimal tip wear and chipping. I would highly recommend all three of these polishes. 

Check out Sally Hansen's website for store locators, pricing and any additional info you might need.
