Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Pink Blink Review + Swatches

(Last Updated On: February 5, 2014)

Patience is a virtue that I just don’t have. As a result I hate things like standing in line, waiting for cookies to bake, and waiting for nails to dry! What’s a girl to do when she can’t move her hands for 30 minutes?

That’s why I was excited to hear about Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Fast Dry Nail Color!


Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Pink Blink Review/Swatches

Pretty in Pink


Sally Says:Covers in just one coat, brilliantly. The Perfectionist Brush™ contours to any nail, so color always glides on precisely, quickly, flawlessly. And, the exclusive Flexiglass Complex combines beautiful, brilliant shine and super-strong wear. So simple, so Sally.


Baking Beauty Says: The polish had great coverage, but didn’t dry instantly as the name implies. After applying the polish it dries in about 60 seconds. However, just because it’s dry to the touch doesn’t mean it’s really dry. It’ll still get impressions/dings if you bump them on something for the next 20/30 minutes.

Pigmentation: 5/5

Coverage was mostly opaque in one coat. This is no small feat for a light pink color.I used 2 just to fill in any bits of nail that may be peeking through.


It didn’t run or goop up on me, no problems here.


The brush is the perfect size and that makes application a breeze.

Lasting Power:3/5

This polish wore for around 3-4 days on me without a top coat. This is average for nail polishes on my nails.

Best for: Those who want an easy at home manicure.

Avoid it if: You’re expecting it to have the wear, or setting power of a gel nail.
