Right off the bat, this Sally Hansen nail polish is NOT worth the money. Even though it's cheap, I'd still save the $5 and go buy yourself a Subway for lunch (you know the jingle, "$5 foot loooonnng"!)...HA!!
- Yes, this "Insta-Dri" does dry super fast. It dries completely in almost 3 minutes to where you can go along with your daily life.
- Yes, it only required one coat, as promised in the ad.
- However, your manicure lasts for maybe a whole day. I don't know what or why this formula starts chipping on the tips so quickly, but it's annoying.
This is the second color I have bought ("rapid red" shown in picture) because I thought maybe I just got a bad batch the first go around, but I was wrong (the first color was "pronto purple"). This picture shows the second day I had worn this color, and I already had to apply a second coat to cover the chipping tips. I did have on a base coat also that should've helped keep this color on, but it didn't. So long story short, spend your 5 bucks on another quick dry polish. I find that Rimmel London's 60 Second nail polish ($4) dries just as quickly, and atleast lasts a couple days instead of one!
On another quick note, you all know how much I love the Budget Babe website which follows celebrity trends and then shows you cheaper alternatives to mimic their looks and fashion.
So just yesterday they highlighted the Vita Fede's double wrap bracelet ($55, above) that is worn by the likes of Halle Berry and hottest girl of the year (according to Maxim magazine), Miss Katy Perry! And what do you know, I just bought a verrry similar type wrap bracelet with studs last week from Macy's for $14! ( I had a 20% off coupon I used also).
This was a Macy's brand accessory and is more of a triple band than a double band, so you get even more for your money! Mine are on black leather with silver studs, so no color, but I wear lots of black anyway so they go with everything. Just had to share this great find and Macy's is loaded with great inexpensive accessory options right now. So use the $5 bucks you would've spent on that Sally Hansen and apply it to a new bracelet that will last longer!
